Sono soddisfatta poiché è proprio come me lo aspettavo, le misure che ho mandato sono servite per creare un costume da bagno su misura. Geniale il fatto di poterlo poi usare come bikini o costume intero. Graziee :)

About

The making of a custom swimsuit

I started my swimwear line when my daughter asked me to make a swimsuit for her. I have made clothes for myself and all my five children for years, but never a swimsuit. I resisted. She insisted. I ruined many yards of spandex and I learned. She still wears some of my "mistakes". After perfecting my daughter's favorite design, I decided it was my turn for a suit. But something to flatter me would have to be different.

My body was quite different from a young teen's and I wanted the suit that would do everything. Hence, the diva-KINI. I wanted to tan my midriff, which I didn't often reveal due to five children, too many brownies and not enough sit ups! I also wanted to be able to cover it up when we pulled into a restaurant on our boat, or when suddenly, the secluded part of our beach becomes the popular spot in the sand.

Out of my insecurities about my body, the diva-KINI was born and has made many other women feel secure about relaxing on a beach, secluded or otherwise.

My high waisted designs were created from just natural knowledge of how to flatter the female form. Where the fabric ends, the eye goes.. so wouldn't you naturally end the swim fabric at the smallest point of your high waist? Most women have a problem area below the belly button and most swimwear starts the "waist" there. Bringing the waist higher reveals the hourglass figure that Marilyn so beautifully showcased.

I have made swimwear for women of all shapes and sizes, some who have had complicated surgeries or scars. When a customer tells me that they are actually looking forward to going to the beach in their swimsuit for the first time in years, I am elated.

I will continue to design figure flattering swimwear and have a few plans in mind for this coming season.

    I have been sewing my own clothes since age of 14. My swimwear line was created because I desired a suit that would allow me to tan my midriff, but still give coverage when I wanted it. My diva-Kini design will make you love going to the beach!
