I see Shein being advertised everywhere on the internet, I'm sure you do as well, and it always looks amazing, really nice fitting and good quality clothing that is really affordable! But I do love to watch reviews on youtube of these brands and the reviews can sometimes be mixed.

Shein is very affordable, most of the items are around the £10 mark, particularly for the bikinis. But because they are so cheap sometimes on the reviews the clothing is not properly sized or is badly made. Brands like Shein don't follow my ethos of buying sustainable clothing that is well made BUT its rare I wear bikinis, so they do tend to last me a long time since I'm not on holiday all that much and I have been curious to try the bikinis from there for a long time now.

The one thing I struggled with was sizing, I went for a small in both bikini's and I wouldn't generally consider myself a small normally, but they did both fit reasonably well. I'm generally an 8 on top and a 10-12 on my bottom half for reference.

There are SO many bikinis in different styles and patterns and colours on the website, I had looked a few times at which ones I liked and deliberated over a lot of different styles. The watermelon bikini really attracted me because I love the blue colour and I'm a sucker for stripes. This swimsuit actually fits really nicely and I dont have any complaints. The only other thing to mention is that it does have pads in the front for your boobs, I quite like these but you can take them out if you want.

I liked the polka dot bikini because of the tie front, I thought it was more likely to fit me if I could adjust the front! I love the simplicity of the black and white and I actually love the way this top looks! I think it will look really stylish with some denim shorts on holiday. The only negative I have about this bikini is that the colour of the material fades when the material is stretched. It doesn't affect the way the swimsuit looks once its on but it shows the quality of the material. The bottoms of this bikini are slightly smaller than the other, but I just think this is good for tanning.

Let me know if you have bought anything from Shein, what did you think?
