Quality & Characteristics
The length of the shorts and skirt is made just above the knee no matter how tall you are! Each swimsuit is custom built for your height!
I use a first quality swimsuit fabric. These are thicker than most other suits, making it less likely to cling when you are wet, but not too heavy to weigh you down! It is 4-way stretch fabric made out of nylon, lycra, and spandex.
The nylon thread is made especially for stretchy swimsuit seams; that makes the seams nearly unbreakable! But don’t try it at home :).
Serged Seams and Coverstitched Hems
These swimsuits are sewn in the USA on Janome sergers. The serged seams make the swimsuit sturdy and resistant to breaking. Coverstitched hems complete the professional look.

How to Measure
– Your bust (or chest) is fullest part around the chest
- – Your waist is measurement around the smallest part of your torso (usually just above your belly button) or your natural waistline.
- – Your hip is the circumference around the largest part of the hips (below your waist).
If a girl is in between sizes, you may want to order the next size, so that they can grow into it.
If a lady is in between sizes, order the size closest, or if you are uncomfortable with a tight fit, order the larger size. A tighter fit would be good for those who are active in the water, and want the support. If only your hips are an inch or so larger than the measurements, the swimsuit will still most likely fit. The skirt gives room for that and lycra fabric is very stretchy.
if you’re just not sure, email me your measurements, and I will suggest a size. A custom fit is also available (cost may be higher).
