AN INFLUENCER has shared her bikini haul from Fashion Nova - and some of the items are truly tragic.

Plus size influencer Allison Kimmey shared her online shopping disaster with her 214.8k followers on TikTok in a video titled: ‘Not all swim hauls are created equal but gotta keep it real!’

Starting her video the swimwear enthusiast says she “drunk ordered” the bikinis, describing what then arrived as “pretty bad.” 

The first haul item Allison reveals is a cute pink mesh coverup, pointing out that in by itself the coverup isn’t a disaster before adding “but let me show you what’s underneath” and revealing the rather ill-fitting bikini that came with the coverup.

The bikini, she notes, has an unlined top, and offers very little support or coverage.

She said: “I think there’s a reason that on the site they didn’t show the suit on the plus size model, they only showed [her] with the coverup set on.”

The second swimsuit she describes as “tragic,” adding that she’s unable to zip the item up or show how badly fitting the bottom part is. “Maybe I had like five glasses of wine,” she jokes.

The third item in Allison’s Fashion Nova haul is a floral swimsuit -putting it on she adds that she “can’t even explain this one” and is “literally speechless.”

“The only saving grace for this one is that it came with a skirt, which is the only way you could possibly wear this.” She adds.

Allison also points out that: “It’s literally not even bathing suit material so you couldn’t really get in the water in this. There’s no lining, no pads, there’s nothing.”

Wearing the next bikini she says: “It actually has lining and pads. It’s very low in the front, but also in the back.”

“I mean this one’s not completely unfortunate,” she continues. “I don’t hate it, I just don’t love it.”

Advising her viewers Allison says: “If you choose not to heed my warning and decide you want to try this yourself for size reference I ordered a 3X in everything, and some of it has fit, but most of it has not.”

The final item in the haul is a pink swimsuit, which the influencer describes as “the least tragic of them all.”

Adding: “It’s still showy, but I’m not crying. It’s actually pretty cute to be honest.”
