Forever 21+ Swimwear 2018: Plus Size Bird & Leaf Print One-Piece Swimsuit

Today’s review from the Forever 21+ 2018 UK swimwear collection is the Forever 21+ Bird & Leaf Print Swimsuit.

I am a big fan of prints generally, but this one featuring toucans, parrots and greenery really caught my eye. Anything evocative of holidays and tropical climates is a winner in my book.

I ordered the Forever 21+ Bird & Leaf Print Swimsuit in a 0X, which is labelled as a UK 18. I would say it comes up more like a UK 14/16.

This style/cut is one I have reviewed twice before in this series of reviews: here at the Plus Size Leaf Print One-Piece Swimsuit and here at the Plus Size Tropical Print One-Piece.

So it’s a style I am becoming accustomed to, and I have to say it has grown on me.

When I first tried it I felt it was far too low cut and I wouldn’t be comfortable wearing it, but actually I quite like it now and I am not sure what’s changed to make me feel this way. Maybe it’s the fab print? I absolutely adore it.

So the front of the Forever 21+ Bird & Leaf Print Swimsuit is, as I said, very low cut, so there is no boob support from underwires or a hidden boob shelf. Just cleavage city!

The straps are thin but adjustable, and they cross over on the back so they are very comfortable to wear.

I feel like there was a bit more boob room in this swimming costume than in the others of the same design. I didn’t measure the swimsuits to check this or anything, but it’s something I noticed when trying them on and when looking at the subsequent photos.

It definitely could have done with more room in the bust for me, but it wasn’t a terrible fit. In fact, if you’re busty and looking for a one-piece that will provide good opportunity for tannage (that’s not even a word) on the upper torso, this is a great option.

The Forever 21+ Bird & Leaf Print Swimsuit isn’t cut quite as skimpily on the rear as others I have reviewed, but it’s not frumpy, either. Just good coverage without being full cut. And I really like the fact the back isn’t cut too low as I hate the feeling that my butt crack might be on display.

In conclusion, this is a fantastic swimsuit and if I were looking to buy a one piece I would seriously consider this option. It comes highly recommended by me.

      It’s great, isn’t it, Zoe? The crossover straps make it so comfortable, and the print is fantastic!

    I think this is my favorite print of this style out of the three you have reviewed. It's so evocative of a vacation. I think I will be ordering one as soon as I get my pay check, I hope they will still have one in stock for me!Delilah

      I hope you managed to get one, Delilah! It’s a lovely option for a beach holiday especially.

    Thank you for your review – off the back of which I have just ordered this swimsuit! It looks so good on you and I can only dream it'll look even half that on me, but I am willing to accept a compromise!! I really want a tanned cleavage (don't ask!!) and this swimsuit will serve the purpose perfectly.I love your blog, I have been a fan for years and am so pleased to see you posting regularly again. Please stay with us <3

      I’m here to stay, Kelly, don’t you worry! And yes, I too am a fan of having a tanned cleavage. My favourite thing to have is a tanned tummy – whenever I get back from holiday I peep at my tummy regularly to see how brown it is, haha!!

    Ah thank you for this. I have been hunting high and low for a bathing suit for my sister-in-law and I think this will be just what she is after. I might even get one myself so we can be twins! Such a helpful review; thank you.

      I hope your sister-in-law loved this swimming costumer as much as I did, and that you decided to get one for yourself, too. And thank you – I am so pleased to hear my review was helpful to you 🙂

    I have this in the leaf print and I love it! I have a smaller chest than you so I don’t need that much support, but I did size up for length because I have a very long torso. It’s really hard for me to find one pieces that fit because I’m plus-size AND tall, but this style is perfect on me! I even wore it as a bodysuit under denim shorts the other day.

    You look fab as always. xx
