Swim Sexy’s Jungle Book Underwire Bikini

Reviews When I first posted Swim Sexy’s Underwire Jungle Book swimsuits, they and the bikinis in this style had no reviews.
Now the bikinis have a 4.1 star average out of their current 15 reviews
The one piece style a 4.4 star average out of their current 13 reviews.
Not surprisingly, the sizes on both these beautifully styled and printed bikinis and one piece swimsuits are becoming limited…

Summary of Current Jungle Book Underwire Bikini Reviews

Most of the reviews for this bikini are very descriptive and helpful! I would click on this bikini’s picture and read them yourself before purchasing.

Naturally, where we are showing the most skin, sizing becomes even more important!
Pleasantly, S4A now shows both the
Most Helpful Favorable and
Most Helpful Critical reviews
at the top of their Review sections!

Even the most Favorable Review tells us to:
Use The Size Chart.
She says she normally wears a size 14 in regular apparel,
but ordered a size 18 for both this bikini’s top and bottom
and tells us they both fit great!

The most Critical review tells us:
Awesome print! Fun and Flattering. Bottoms fit well and she finds them surprisingly flattering!

Her cons are the fit of this bikini’s top.
Says she usually wears a 38D, so she ordered a size 16 for the top.
She says the cups fit great, but everything else was off:
  • Strap Length and position
  • Band fit well but gave little support
  • The material is thinner than she is accustomed to… 
Says if she had the time before needing this for her vacation, she would exchange this for a size 18…

I do not think this would help much because in my experience, if I do not have enough support, I want a smaller band size. Is that just me?

Other reviewers also have top issues, some nicely resolved and to me this is no surprise.
When it comes to underwire bras, they have to be the right size and style for you to fit and feel just right.

I very much suspected this would be the case in underwire swimwear.
If you are certain of your bra size, and especially if you need larger than G cup sizes, I would, well I do, get bra sized swimwear by Elomi, Fantasie, Panache, Bravissimo and the like. You can read more about that on our sister site’s DD+ Plus Size Swimwear page.

Re the swim briefs: Most reviews are favorable on these, however, fit is everything on bikini bottoms too, so this too is rather individual. These current reviews are refreshingly helpful though and worth checking out if you are considering getting this bikini style!

Also possibly helpful when considering plus size bikini styles is this Loey Lane’s bikini haul video. She thoughtfully gives the stores / brands of the styles she shows us.

I hope this is the one I intended here. She has a few!

This is also quite helpful, as are the reviews of the bikini above, in alerting us to issues that we might not think of regarding style and fit, until we are trying a bikini on!
