Honest Cupshe swimsuits review, by fashion blogger What The Fab

This Cupshe swimsuits review has all the details on the beachwear brand’s fashionable and versatile swimsuits.

If you’re balling on a budget but still want to look cute AF on the beach in your new ‘kini, Cupshe swimwear is for you.

Cupshe’s stylish one-piece and two-piece bathing suits are available in XS to 4X size options, always at an affordable price.

I first came across Cupshe when a girlfriend of mine gave me the cute flamingo one-piece swimsuit pictured above.

This suit didn’t fit her right, so she said if it fit me, I could keep it. Score!

I wore it to the Bahamas, discovered it was reversible (who doesn’t love two swimsuits for the price of one?), and received so many compliments on it.

After that, I started seeing Cupshe popping up more and more—its bandeau bikinis and one-pieces are trendy and cute, not to mention the excellent prices.

I’ve ordered about a dozen Cupshe swimsuits and received some influencer gifting packages from them.

I’ve worn their swimsuits worldwide, from Portugal and Italy to Morocco, and I’m ready to share my thoughts!

Whenever I’m planning a trip with beach or pool time, I can’t help but visit Cupshe’s website to see what new styles they have.

Tell me I’m not the only one who packs five different swimsuit options for a week-long trip.

Especially when the prices are so good and don’t break the bank, I can easily justify picking out a new suit “just because.” 😉

The vast selection can be overwhelming, and I was skeptical when I first came across the site.

With such incredible prices, I wondered about the quality of the fabric and the overall craftsmanship.

Overall, I’ve had positive experiences with Cupshe, but there are several things to know before buying, so let’s get into my Cupshe swimsuits review.

What is Cupshe?

Cupshe is a fast-fashion swimsuit brand gaining popularity for its vast selection and affordable prices.

The brand was founded in 2015 and is led by Chinese entrepreneur Mike Zhao.

Cupshe’s mission is to empower women everywhere to feel confident and beautiful with every bathing suit they design.

You may have seen different Cupshe swimsuits on Amazon or while Googling “cute, affordable swimwear.”

While not branded as a plus-size swim company, Cupshe does offer sizes up to 4X. (This is in their plus-size collection—not all swimwear is available from XS to 4X).

And I’ve noticed that Cupshe has recently been branching out to include swimwear and clothes on their site. Think easy, breezy dresses, rompers, and cover-ups.

I have yet to try out their clothes, but they’re definitely on my list—everything looks so cute.

So, this honest Cupshe swimsuit review focuses on swimwear since I have personal experience with that.

And with hundreds (maybe even thousands?) of different styles on their website, it’s easy to find swimwear that flatters your body type!

This plunging neckline swimsuit is from the Cupshe x Jojo Fletcher collection (which is fire, btw), but sadly, it’s sold out. Here’s a similar plunging one-piece available on Cupshe.

I will say while the design of this one is super fun and unique, it rode up in the front area a lot. I would have to get a Brazilian wax to feel comfortable wearing this one in public, if you know what I mean!

And probably a spray tan, if I’m being honest. Especially looking at this picture, my tan lines with this cut look a bit odd, lol.

Cupshe Shipping

Cupshe currently ships to the United States, Canada, Australia, the UK, France, Italy, Spain, New Zealand, and many more.

Cupshe’s standard shipping to the US, which costs $3.99, takes 5-7 business days.

Free expedited shipping with orders of $49+ is pretty standard, and I’ve also seen offers for free shipping with orders of $29+.

While I haven’t had any issues with Cupshe’s shipping, I’ve seen other people online share their experiences with massive shipping delays, lost packages, and lots of back and forth with customer service.

So, just a heads up that if you’re picking out swimsuits for a trip, order ahead to ensure your package arrives before you leave for vacation!

Cupshe Return Policy

You can return items for a full refund within 30 days of delivery.

As with any swimwear brand, leave the hygiene stickers on the swimsuits when trying them on in case you want to return anything.

For sanitary reasons, items like beach blankets, towels, jewelry, hair accessories, and sale items are not eligible for returns or exchanges unless there is a quality issue.

Return shipping labels are not free—a shipping label ranges from $9.99 for one return item to $15.99 for 6+ items.

I found it confusing that the FAQs page on their website says that they only offer return labels for customers in the US, but I’ve read blog posts from UK bloggers who said they could return swimsuits to Cupshe’s UK office.

Something to note and look into if you’re based elsewhere!

Cupshe Styles

Cupshe offers trendy designs with simple styles, plunging necklines, varying coverage for your bum, tummy control, and everything in between.

It might seem too good to be true, but Cupshe bathing suits are the real deal.

You can shop adorable one-piece swimsuits with or without sleeves and the cutest bikinis with cheeky or high-waisted bottoms.

And don’t worry about finding matching bottoms or cover-ups, as most of Cupshe’s selection comes perfectly paired.

Whether you’re looking for a sleek, black one-piece swimsuit or a fun, colorful string bikini, Cupshe’s got it.

Cupshe Sizing

With every Cupshe bathing suit I own, I am blown away by the high quality given the affordable price—not to mention their vast range of sizes!

Sizes include XS (30A/B, 32A/B), S (32C/D, 34A/B), M (34C/D, 36A/B), L (36C/D, 38A/B/C), XL (38D, 40B/C/D) and XXL (38DD, 40C/D/DD).

Cupshe also offers a unique collection of plus-sized bathing suits featuring options from 0X to 4X. We love an inclusive brand!

Since I’m in between sizes, I’ve ordered medium for some swimsuits and large for others, depending on the cut, style, and bum coverage, and it’s generally worked out fine.

I’ve only had a couple of swimsuits that I’ve had to return or gift to someone else because the sizing didn’t work out for me.

Their swimsuits are pretty true to size—if you usually wear a medium, their medium will probably fit you just fine.

What I find to be a bit off, though, is their size guide: according to my hip measurements, I should order an XXL, which is not my correct size.

If this is your first time ordering from Cupshe, go to your usual sizes and don’t rely too much on their size chart.

Ensure your items are eligible for returns if the sizing doesn’t work out.

You can also read the customer reviews for each swimsuit to get a feel for the fit and coverage of the swimsuit you’re eyeing, which is super helpful!

Cupshe Plus-Size Collection

Another thing I love is that Cupshe has tons of chic and bold sets in their plus-size collection.

Two-piece sizing in this collection ranges from 0X (36DD, 40.5-42.5 in. bust) to 3X (46DD/48DD, 49.5-51.5 in. bust).

Many of their one-pieces reach a 4X (52-56 in. bust, 44.8-48.8 in. waist, and 54.8-58.8 in. hips).

Their plus size collection differs from their straight size swimsuits, so not every swimsuit you see on Cupshe’s site is available in 4X.

This swimsuit is another winner from Jojo’s collection with Cupshe. I wouldn’t have picked out a bikini top with ruffle sleeves, but it’s SO cute.

I will say that I also received a string bikini set from Jojo’s collab in an influencer gifting package…and while she looks fantastic in it, the bottoms were laughably small.

The back went right up my bum (I told you this was an honest Cupshe swimsuits review!), which isn’t my vibe.

Sadly, I won’t be able to wear those bottoms, but the top is cute, and I can easily pair it with black bikini bottoms.

Cupshe Prices

Cupshe’s super affordable prices are very attractive—combine that with the styles, and it’s no wonder everyone is getting drawn in!

One-pieces: $8.99 – $37.99
Two-piece (bikini) sets: $8.99 – $36.99
Plus-size sets: $13.99 – $42.99

Cupshe Pros

Bikini Variety

Starting strong, Cupshe offers many two-piece, high-coverage sets with a wide variety of patterns and options for padding—both removable, non-removable, and none.

I’m a huge fan of high-waisted bikini bottoms, and they have a variety of ones that cover as much or as little as you’d like.

Additionally, Cupshe suits accentuate my curves, and I receive so many compliments when I wear them! Many of their two-piece sets have adjustable and comfortable bra bands and straps.

Their cheekier bottoms give you a snatched look in the front, but don’t leave anything hanging out in the back.

Flattering Designs

So often, when you order from Chinese brands, their pieces are only made for skinny chicks. And even if you size up, the fit is not flattering for someone with curves.

I’ve found so many flattering swimsuits from Cupshe, and with so many different styles to choose from, I’m sure you will, too.

Trendy One-Pieces

Onto the one-piece choices—some are simple and curve-loving with a flattering back. Others are more colorful and intricate, showing off some skin with side cutouts. The possibilities are endless.

Many one-pieces provide a more comfortable feel on a beach or pool day, but most are pretty unstylish and chunky. That is not the case with Cupshe one-pieces.

Good Quality

If I were to guess, this is probably the main thing you’re curious about when searching for a Cupshe swimsuits review. Are Cupshe swimsuits good quality?

I’ve been delighted and impressed with the quality of Cupshe’s swimsuits for the price. They look and feel like they are much more expensive than $30.

Sometimes, I don’t love the bikini top pads and feel like those aren’t great quality and look lumpy, but they’re easily removable.

Overall, you can’t go wrong with the vast selection of Cupshe swimsuits—they’re unmatched! Fashionable and affordable bathing suits for this summer? Check.

Cupshe Cons

Fast-Fashion Manufacturing

While it’s my genuine and honest opinion that these bathing suits are worth the price you pay, Cupshe is a fast-fashion brand. I’d be remiss to do an in-depth Cupshe swimsuits review and not mention this.

There are always ethical and sustainability questions behind fast fashion and how products are manufactured, which I don’t know the answers to.

Color Discrepancies

Also, while most of the time, the swimsuit I receive looks exactly as pictured on the website, sometimes the color is slightly off.

While these swimsuits might not look and feel the same over time after a year or more (time will tell on that one), many Cupshe customers, including myself, are extremely satisfied with the wear that comes out of these suits.

Can’t Return Sale Swimsuits

Sometimes, I get excited to see a Cupshe swimsuit on sale for $10, and I’m about to pull the trigger before remembering I can’t return it if the fit is wrong.

For $10, maybe it’s worth the risk, but I like to ensure I have the perfect fit, especially with swimwear.

Despite these caveats, I’ve become a Cupshe fan. I’d say 8 out of 10 of what I order from them has been a hit—hardly any misses!

That’s it for my in-depth Cupshe swimsuits review. I can’t wait to see you guys rocking these bathing suits!

That seems odd! I've never seen that happen. Where were you shipping to? I'd reach out to their customer service about it.
