Fatkini Time! Mini Review

It's almost Summer time! I cant wait even though it already feels like Summer here in Vegas, but mostly I'm excited to visit Cali and enjoy the beach soon. As of right now I'll just be wearing this suit around the house. 
I was so happy when I saw that Forever 21 Plus had this bikini. I'm like mega obsessed with fruit print so I had to get it, I even sold my other fatkini to get this one! 
I bought this one in a size 2x I usually wear a size 1x (16-18) but their swimsuits run small. I originally I bought a size 3x for my leopard print suit seen here because I didn't want the suit to fit me too tight so I can feel more comfortable wearing it and not have to worry about it cutting off my circulation from my thighs, also I wanted it to be more high waisted than usual. The 3x fit fine as you can see from the photo, but it was just a tad bit too big on my boobs (my boobs are quite small I’m a size 40C) and the bum area fit a bit saggy. The fit was great everywhere else which was a bummer but If you have a bigger bum the 3x might be a good fit (it really sucks you can't mix sizes for the printed swimwuits!). So I decided on a size 2x for the fruit bikini. The top and bottoms fit perfectly just a little tighter on my thighs but I don't mind that much:) 
I love that it comes with adjustable/removable straps for extra support or you can wear it strapless for an even tan:) The only annoying thing about this suit is that the padding on the top is not sewn in, its kind of just floating in there so it tends to shift around when wearing it so i'm not too sure how it will hold up in water. I might just have to hand sew it in place to the lining. Overall I'm in love with this swimwuit! Thanks forever 21 plus for making cute affordable swimsuits Ahh!:D

Ps. Sorry for the horrible review!

This cover up is actually a vintage nightie!
