Forever 21+ Swimwear 2018: Plus Size Ice Cream Cone One-Piece Swimsuit

The next review in my series of Forever 21+'s 2018 UK swimwear collection is the Plus Size Ice Cream Cone One-Piece Swimsuit.

Similar to the Flamingo One Piece Swimsuit I reviewed recently, this is a fun graphic design, ideal for sunny holidays.

I ordered the swimsuit in a size 1X, which is labelled as a UK 20 but in my opinion it fits more like a UK 16/18.


The pink fabric is so pretty! It has a very slight silvery-ness to it, so it looks almost holographic.


The ice cream graphics are - like on the flamingo swimsuit - made from sequins, so they have a lovely three-dimensional appearance to them. So fab for summer times on the beach!


The 1X was a good fit for me overall, but of course there wasn't quite enough boob room for my liking.


I mean, it wasn't completely lacking in space for my babylons, but I definitely could have done with more fabric in that area. There is no formal boob support either, so no hidden shelf and no underwires.


The rest of the swimsuit fitted really well. The straps aren't adjustable but they're really comfy as they are of reasonable width, and they stay in place easily.


The back of the swimsuit comes up quite high - to roughly where your bra band would naturally sit - so this added to the feeling that this swimming costume is very comfortable and easy to wear.


Butt coverage is also good but cut a little skimpily to reveal an extra few centimetres of cheek!


All in all this is a fab swimsuit and I would have been tempted to keep it if I was currently looking for a one-piece. But I'm not, so I reluctantly sent it back as I do not have money to spare at the moment.


So this one wasn't a keeper for me due to lack of spare funds, but nonetheless I highly recommend it for anyone looking for a fun one-piece swimsuit to wear either at the beach, by the pool, or for general fabulousness this summer. It could even be worn as a bodysuit - it would look great with a pair of jeans and heels.

You can buy the swimsuit here for just £25.

  1. All these swimsuits and bikinis you’ve reviewed are fantastic! I wish I could buy them all but I am limiting myself to just two of each. I think this one will be on my list!

  2. Your boobs are so amazing! You say this swimsuit has no boob support but if that’s the case you must naturally have very buoyant breasts!!! Mine would look like two flat pancakes but I don’t care because the swimsuit is so good. Oh and also #saggyboobsmatter 🙌🏻

  3. Will you be reviewing any bra sizes swim wear any time soon? I love your series of F21+ reviews but I prefer underwires in my bikini’s.
    Thanks.
