'Live more, wear less"

Acuarela bikinis are handmade with love and passion by myself, Lindsay Smith. I am originally from Vancouver, Canada but moved to Mexico in 2008 to pursue my dream of living on the beach and creating beautiful swimwear. When I am not out surfing and testing out my new designs, I am sewing and creating in my small studio in Pescadero, Baja California Sur.

All the suits on Etsy are made as they are ordered and are available for custom sizing too. This is a much more efficient way to order swimwear online because you are not taking a chance with a regular size. For custom sizing, I will need: Bra size, hips, waist, height, and weight.

First I create a pattern from scratch using your specific measurements. I take into consideration your height and weight to ensure an exact fit. Next I test the fabric and judge which areas would look best for the style of top or bottom and where it stretched most. Once the bikini is cut, I begin the sewing process. Depending on the style, I may use up to three different machines followed by a small section that I sew by hand. Once the piece is finished, I cut any remaining threads and check for any imperfections. When I am completely satisfied with the finished product I wrap it up with extra love and send it on its way to you.

Acuarela bikinis are handmade with love and passion by me, Lindsay Smith. Each piece is completely customized. From the pattern to the finished product, I use your personal measurements to create a bikini completely customized to fit your body. Choose your favorite style, fabric, and cut, or contact me to create something completely different.
Returns and exchanges
If you receive your bikini and are not completely satisfied, or it does not fit perfectly, contact me right away. Although I do not offer any refunds, I will gladly make you a new one and send it free of charge. Please contact me no later than 15 days after receiving your package to make all the necessary adjustments. I will not accept any exchanges after that.

Sometimes fabric is limited so I cannot guarantee your new bikini will be exactly the same as the one you ordered previously, but I will work hard to make something similar and equally as beautiful.
I only except payment through PayPal.

PayPal is safe and you can use any major credit card to pay through PayPal with no account needed. After you purchase an item through Etsy, you still need to click the “pay with PayPal” button in order to complete the process.
Bikinis are sent from Santa Cruz, California. Allow 2-4 days shipping within the US and 5-10 days on shipments to Canada and all other countries 2-3 weeks. International customs may also add to the delay of a shipment.

All items will be shipped to your Etsy address provided unless otherwise noted. Please double check you address is correct. There will be no refunds if the address you provided is wrong.
