I am reviewing as many pieces as possible from Forever 21+’s UK 2018 swimwear collection. These reviews are short and sweet, but nonetheless I hope useful. Today’s review is of the Forever 21+ Red Triangle Bikini Top and High-Cut Bikini Bottoms.

The bottoms I am reviewing are not the ones seen in the stock photo above; as far as I am aware these have never been listed on the F21 website. Instead, I am reviewing a pair that are similar but have a higher cut leg.
I ordered both pieces of the Forever 21+ Red Triangle Bikini in a 1X, which is labelled as a UK 20. I’d say that a 1X comes up as more like a UK 16 in this bikini.
The red is a beautiful hue – like a bright tomato red. Perfect for sunny holidays!
The Forever 21+ Red Triangle Bikini top is essentially a cami or a crop top – it has no underwires or formal support. However, due to its design it doesn’t do a bad job of holding up my boobs, even if space in the top is lacking for me. The shoulder straps are fully adjustable, which helps with giving the top a decent amount of support.
The back band has no fastening so to get this top on and off it must be pulled over one’s head (or I suppose stepped into, but that’s not an option with my generous hips!). I like the fact there’s no clasp or fastening to fiddle around with, and the smooth appearance of the back looks good.
The Forever 21+ Red Triangle Bikini bottoms are very comfortable indeed. They are cut to cover but not too much, so you won’t get a wedgie but more of your cheeks will be on show than with many other brands. The rise at the front is good, too, coming up to an inch or two below the belly button on me.
I did get quadboob with this top due to the lack of boob room, and as you can see in several of my pictures my breasts are spilling out at the sides. Not a look I aim for in swimwear, but it’s something I experience all too often as I currently wear a 32M bra so non bra sized items like this are much less likely to fit properly.
It’s such a pity the Forever 21+ Red Triangle Bikini top wasn’t roomy enough for my boobs, otherwise I would have definitely kept this bikini. It’s plain and simple but it looks great and was really comfy to wear. I highly recommend it to anyone who isn’t quite as busty as me.
