Forever 21 Plus’s Relaunch Definitely Has the Best Swimsuits

Forever 21 has always been a go-to for affordable clothes. (Where else can you find a coat for 50 bucks?) Unfortunately, the brand’s extended sizes were limited until today. On April 14, Forever 21 Plus re-launched its line, which carries sizes XL to 3X, and there’s a ton of new tops, dresses, and pants to choose from.

“We launched Forever 21 Plus in 2009 as we felt that there was a big gap in the market for trend-driven, plus fashion at a great value,” Vice President of Merchandising Linda Chang told WWD. “Our instincts were right, and now ‘plus’ is a key category for us. We’re re-launching Forever 21 Plus in response to a growing customer demand for more styles and fashion.”

Cool-girl models Barbie Ferreira and Lulu Bonfils are headlining the campaign ads, which also double as a style guide for shoppers. But the best part about the re-launch is that there’s a bunch of amazing swimsuits in the mix. Forever 21 Plus has sold extended sizes in the past, but these designs are more stylish than ever with on-trend silhouettes and sexy cut-outs. We definitely couldn’t let the summer arrive without gathering up our favorite styles below.

Kate Middleton Just Wore the $65 Sneakers You’ve Been Looking For

Every time Kate Middleton is photographed, she gives us new fashion goals. Did you see the breathtaking Marchesa dress she recently stepped out in? Or the $98 Kate Spade earrings she paired it with? Stunning. And even her casual outfits are an inspiration. On Wednesday, while hosting runners from Team Heads Together at Kensington Palace, Middleton rocked a chic, casual ensemble that’s about to become our weekend uniform this spring.

Her long-sleeve top is a new number by Italian label Luisa Spagnoli. The exact color isn’t available on the brand’s website just yet, but you can shop a similar style here for $280. The Dutchess of Cambridge completed her laid back look with a pair white Superga sneakers ($65; bloomingdales.com) and black jeans.

We’re not sure exactly who makes her fitted denim pants (or when her exact top will be available for purchase), but you can copy Middleton’s effortless style with these look-a-like pieces below.

5 Jean Shopping Hacks From a Professional Denim Fit Model

Behind every perfectly cut pair of jeans, there’s the booty they’re based on—which, if you’ve bought a contemporary pair since 2002, most likely belongs to Natasha Wagner. One of the most sought after fit models in the premium denim business (some of her clients include Re/Done, Paige, and Lucky Brand), her well-balanced, ahem, assets are an ideal starting point for designers to plan out their sizing.

“I’m not waif-like or super curvy—but I still have curves!—so my proportions adjust to a range of body types,” she describes her unique niche in the industry. “And a brand’s goal is to make jeans that work for as many people as possible.”

VIDEO: How to Create the Perfect Frayed Hem on Your Jeans

Throughout a career that’s spanned 15 years, that has meant trying on countless different styles and thinking a whole lot about fit. Here, we’ve asked her to look back on her time behind-the-seams (sorry, it was too tempting!) for her thoughts on finding your best blues.

1. Going up or down a size is does not necessarily mean your body has changed.

According to Wagner, a lot of production variables factor into whether a particular piece runs larger or smaller, from the sewing technique, to how much it shrinks down after the initial wash. Fabric, too, is a major factor: “The rigid vintage-inspired trend, especially, means people need to be open to getting a size or two bigger than usual. Unlike with stretchy jeans, you can’t squeeze into a tighter fit.”

2. Don’t pull the trigger on a new pair unless you’re in love.

“If something is bothering you about the jeans in the fitting room, it won’t go away when you buy them. So don’t settle! The worst thing is paying for something you’re unsure of, and having it sit untouched in your closet.”

3. But still be open to mixing it up.

Even Natasha, who basically gets a sneak peek of every new silhouette before it hits stores, can be skittish about trying something different; like, most recently, switching her second skin stovepipes for a relaxed, vintage-inspired option. “I didn’t didn’t get the appeal at first, but once I saw other women wearing them, I was inspired—now, I think the cut is so flattering. Since, I’ve learned it’s really fun to try things outside your comfort zone. You might surprise yourself with how good it looks!”

4. Little details go a long way.

Want to set your go-to blues apart? “I think it’s really cool to make denim your own by adding patches or cutting off the bottoms for an unfinished edge. I’ve also noticed something I like to call mullet jeans: raw on the bottom, with the front slightly shorter than the back. You can buy this built into your pants (most labels refer to it as a ‘step hem’), but it’s also easy to DIY at home.”

5. When in doubt, go for the higher rise.

“Side spillage over a waistband happens to best of us, but can be can easily be avoided with a higher rise.” While Natasha loves the leg-lengthening benefits of a design that hits above the belly button, she recommends a mid-rise if you don’t like the feeling of extra fabric over your stomach. “The fit isn’t that different from a low rise, but it holds you in in a more flattering way.”
