Forever 21+ Swimwear 2018: Plus Size Sequin Flamingo One-Piece Swimsuit

If you're a regular reader of my blog you'll know that I am on a mission to review the entire Forever 21+ 2018 UK swimwear collection. It's a mammoth task but I am doing my very best to succeed!

Today's mini review is of the Plus Size Sequin Flamingo One-Piece Swimsuit.

What's not to love about this swimming costume? The perfect colour: turquoise. Fab flamingo print: so cool. Sequins: yes please.

I ordered this swimsuit in a 1X. This is labelled as a UK 20 but in my opinion it comes up as more like a UK 16/18 in this piece.

The turquoise colour is SO pretty in real life. It has a silvery look to it, making it even more summery than it looks online.

And not only does this swimsuit feature a flamingo logo, it's a logo made out of SEQUINS. Awesome!

This is very clearly a fast fashion swimsuit - anything with adornments like sequins will never last forever as some are bound to come loose and fall off as you wear the suit but if you want to make a fun statement on the beach this is definitely the piece for you.

I found the 1X a good fit overall. It was a good length in the body and felt very comfortable.

The legs were quite high cut, which I loved as it means more tanning potential!

The boob room on this swimsuit wasn't too bad at all. There's no hidden boob shelf in this one, and no underwires so your boobs will be free to behave as they wish without any kind of control or restraint.

The straps are a decent width so feel comfortable, and the scoop back comes up to just above the waist, which offers more support than it would if it were lower cut.

I just love the colours of this swimsuit. It would look SO good against tanned skin!

I was very tempted to keep this swimsuit but in the end I sent it back as I do prefer bikinis overall. However I do highly recommend it if you are looking for a new swimming costume for the summer that is fun and eye-catching. You can buy it here.


  1. How do you afford all these swimsuits?! Sorry if that’s being too nosy but I’m very envious of your swimwear collection!

    1. Unfortunately I haven’t kept many of these pieces as the fit hasn’t been good enough for me. So my collection probably isn’t as impressive as you might’ve thought!

  2. I’m loving your series of swimwear reviews, you didn’t blog for so long, it’s great that you’re back with a vengeance. I’m definitely going to order this swimming costume as it’s adorable!

    1. Thank you! Yes, I had a very long break from blogging but I’m pleased to be back again. I hope you love this swimsuit - it’s so pretty!

  3. You beauty, I have been looking for a flamingo swimming costume and this one is perfect! Thanks for your review, it's really helped me :o)

  4. This is such a cute swimmer! I really need to buy one even though I already own piles of swimwear ha ha!

    1. You can never own too much swimwear, surely? 😉
