A stylishly simple bikini in classic black – what’s not to love? I ordered both the top and the bottoms in 1X, which is labelled as a UK 20 but I would say the top fits like a UK 16 and the bottoms are akin to a UK 16/18.
I loved the simple elegance of the Forever 21+ Mesh Trim Bikini. The mesh details were just perfect, and I really liked the triangular shape of the cups.
The bikini top is another cami-style one, with no underwires or formal support. There are thin removable pads to disguise pointy nipples, but I took them out as usual as they never stay in place and end up making me cross!
The straps are fully adjustable so it’s easy to get the best fit for you. The back of the Forever 21+ Mesh Trim Bikini has no fastening so the top just pulls on over your head, or I suppose you could step into it if your hips aren’t as generous as mine.
As I am sure you are expecting me to say, I had my usual issue of requiring much more boob room in the top. It’s such a shame…but my bank balance doesn’t mind too much as my big boobs are saving me from buying oodles of swimwear!
You may well be thinking the top looks fine from this angle, but some of my other pictures show the quadboob and side spillage I was getting. I know I won’t ever get a perfect fit from non bra-sized swimwear but the Forever 21+ Mesh Trim Bikini Top was too much of a compromise to work for me.
The Forever 21+ Mesh Trim Bikini briefs, on the other hand, were absolutely perfect.
Sitting high on the hip, they’re incredibly comfortable. They’re quite skimpily cut on the backside but not indecently so. I loved them!
So this was another bikini I decided not to keep due to the lack of boob room, but I am posting it here anyway in case someone less busty than me sees this review and finds it helpful. I think it’s always useful to see everyday people in clothes, lingerie and swimwear online – stock photos are great but candid pictures can help give a better idea of fit.
