Shopping for Cheap Swimsuits: Romwe Review


Of all the clothing items to buy, swimsuits are my favorite. I blame my swimsuit obsession on my childhood, because when we grew up my mom bought us each one swimsuit that we used until it became transparent.  Seriously I had the same bumblebee swimsuit that I despised for like three years. So now, I like to have my options and I like to expand those options frequently;)

I’ve been seeing tons of advertisements with super cute flatlays of swimsuits from questionable websites, so I decided to take the bait and try one out. I bought these two swimsuits from Romwe.com. The reviews I read were completely mixed, some people saying their order never showed up and some saying that they absolutely loved what they got. So I placed my order and prayed to the Chinese manufacturers that I would be one of the lucky ones.

Three weeks later, my package did show up! Overall I like them and will wear them, but there were definitely some pros and cons.

Romwe Swimsuit Review Pros and Cons
Pros:
The price ($12 and $15)
The thickness of the leaf bikini
Comes as a set
Tracking number provided
Product was the same as the picture

Cons:
Inconsistent sizing: the leaf print swimsuit was a medium and fit like a small, the striped swimsuit was a medium and fit like a large. (You can see how the top bunches up on me in the pictures.) Apparently they have different sizing for each product which I didn’t realize.
Unlined bottoms for the striped swimsuit
Unable to order a different size for top and bottom


Overall, I would use this site again but pay more attention to the individual measurements of the product. I love having a wide variety of swimsuits but I also get tired of them quickly, so it makes sense to me to purchase a cheaper, but trendy swimsuit that may only last a season.

Hope this helped, and good luck on your swimsuit buying adventures!
