Every single time I ask on Instagram where I should do try-ons from, one of the MOST requested places is SHEIN. So I figured it was the perfect time to get one together for you and start it with their swimwear. Everything is SUPER affordable. I went into this with VERY LOW expectations from an overseas brand I had never ordered from before. Usually, the sizing is weird, so I made sure to check out reviews first and the consensus I came to was I needed to size up.
For most every swimwear line (Target, Walmart, Old Navy) I wear an XL. For my SHEIN order, I went ahead and grabbed a 2XL in each suit and that worked out for all but two of them. SHEIN doesn’t take swimwear returns but honestly, they were so inexpensive that I’ll likely just give it to a friend. The two that were too big for me, I plan to repurchase in the smaller size because I really liked them.
The quality of the suits was freaking awesome as well!! Each suit had padding cups for the boobs which were fantastic as well! So let’s just jump right in!
This was my favorite suit from the entire try-on. It has great support and holds everything in in the right places. I love the color and I just can see myself wearing this and being completely comfortable that nothing is going to pop out LOL
This was another fave, I love the colors and it’s super bright. It has a little less booty coverage than the first one does but enough to where it won’t be riding up.
This was a HUGE FAVORITE. It fit so well and was super flattering and the look I go for most often! A bikini without being a bikini!
WEARING THE 2XL (SIZE DOWN IN THIS ONE)
So this one is super cute but I had a ton of extra room in it and the shoulder straps, even being adjusted to the tightest were falling off. I am re-ordering this one size down!
So this one I loved BUT as you can see the boob without the strap wants to escape. Since I can’t return it I think I’m gonna see if the tailor can just add two little things so I can add an adjustable bra strap for more support!
The jury is still out on if I like this one or not. I was pleased that the straps were detachable. But the top was slightly too big while the bottoms didn’t quite cover my belly button as I would like!. But it was cute nonetheless.
I absolutely adored this one piece as well! Love the print and love the shaping it gave!
Like I said, the quality of these suits far exceeded my expectations and I was actually really impressed. I’m super excited to try out more things from SHEIN as well as some more swimwear. The prices truly cannot be beaten.
