If you’re on a search for an African print one-piece with matching scarf that won’t cost you an arm and a leg, you can stop scrolling. Seriously, similar ones I’ve seen cost as much as $120 for the pair! This set costs one-forth that price. The product images do not do this swimsuit enough justice.

And if you want to make a statement, this geometric ankara swimwear will be the only monokini you will reach out for. The full coverage monokini is made from spandex and rayon mix with breast cups.

And the scarf is made with matching chiffon fabric. The fabric also dries quickly so you can keep it on rotation. I have it in size medium. I recommend sizing up or sticking with your usual size.

One caution, if you are tall, say greater than 5’6, this swimsuit might be a little too tight around the thighs/pelvic area. It stretches out after a few wears.

For the price and quality of the product, I’ll give this African print one-piece swimsuit a 4.5-star rating. This nylon and spandex ankara swimwear will quickly become one of your favorite bathing suits.
