Quality & Characteristics

Customized Length

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!

High-Quality Fabric

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.

Durable Thread

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.

Sizes

Girl’s, Ladies, Plus–Sizes

How to Mesure


  • 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).

Girl’s Sizes

If a girl is in between sizes, you may want to order the next size, so that they can grow into it. Be aware, however, that a too large swimsuit can be baggy and hard to swim in. Generally, you can order a swimsuit up to 2 inches larger than your measurements.

Ladies’ Sizes

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.

Plus–Sizes

Yes, I make plus-size suits! Fill out the custom form with your measurements, and I’ll make one especially for you for $120! Let me know if you have any specific requests or questions. If you’d prefer to ask me questions before ordering, contact me and I’d be happy to chat!

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).
