Item shipped across the world so it was appropriately timed. I wasn't in a rush to begin with :) The pants came in a small package that fit in my mailbox so it wasn't conspicuously on my porch. The fit is perfect and I wear them every chance I get and adjust them up and down my legs into short shorts and long shorts. I requested a back pocket and she did a great job of adding it on. I use the back pocket all the time and absolutely adore these pants and their adjustable features :)

About

PettiBear-NOT just a tasty cookie...

What is PettiBear ?
'Petibar' is the Israeli version of Le Petit Beurre cookie
So why I named my brand PettiBear?
It all began 7 years back when I decided to quit my day job as a kitchen designer and fly solo -invest in my passion for handmade.
But let me first tell you that I'm a Fine Art & Design school graduate and am a self learner,autodidact by nature . I try to learn new thing and develope new learnt techniques every single day!!!
My first adventure was a cake decorating business. https://www.flickr.com/photos/tiamatdesign/sets/72157605674569388/
I LOVED sculpting cakes for special events in people lives and things went very well,but something was missing...I missed my days at school studying arts and fashion major -designing and making clothes
At this time I also had my first baby girl, Sierra.
When she was born, she looked just like my husband ,Mishka so everyone called her
“lil Mishka” {by the way,the word "Misha" is “BEAR” in Russian and Mishka means little bear}
One day ,while standing in my kitchen making one of my fondant cakes and holding petibar in my hand it hit me, the name of the cookie has the perfect sound to brand the FASHION shop I want to establish and there it all began :)
“petti”= slip skirt
“bar”= treat but in Hebrew it also sounds like “bear”
petit bear = "lil Mishka"
Great wordplay!!!
And that is how PETTIBEAR was born.
The name which beautifully combines all the passions in my life- my little BEAR family ,baking and designing fashionable treats for you!

I’ve opened my first shop here on etsy 7 years ago offering graphic design services. My shoppe was simply named after my family name 'Tiamat' and was called- TiamatDesign https://www.etsy.com/il-en/shop/TiamatDesign
So how it connects to fashion you ask?!
Graphic design comes hand in hand with fashion like strawberries are a great companion with chocolate ganache and cream - it helps you develop cool art you can then print, embroider ,felt etc. It gives you your own voice and grands your brand a unique identity !
I'm telling you about my first shop even tough in has nothing to do with PettiBear, because being unique and different was always important to me .
Back at the days when I was skinny,finding nice flattering clothing wasn't a problem to me but life tends to throw you lots of curve-balls and after giving birth 3 times to my beautiful princesses ,I couldn't find a bra that fits...pants that will sit well on my narrow waist yet super feminine curvy hips ....Top that stays in place and won't jump up...well you know , the regular problems any woman has when she is not a size zero.
So ,what I needed was no longer to be found and the frustration of looking for it has driven me back to my routs and into opening my second etsy shop where I focus on custom fashion design for REAL, Curvy Sexy woman .
A lady who can appreciate custom made to measurements HANDMADE
[not manufactured!!! ] fashion and handcrafted accessories which are made to appeal and flatter not only the skinny woman but also give respect and accentuates the curvaceous ladies like you and me :)
I LOVE what I do, welcome your supportive feedbacks and can't wait to work with YOU

By buying PettiBear you show not only support for my Handmade Fashion, you also help me provide for my little cabs Sierra (8), Sheluvi (5) and Sagie (1)

Frequently asked questions

What is required from me for you to make me a custom swimsuit?

To make a custom made to measurements swimsuit I need you to send me your carefully taken measurements and your true height (no heels this time )
To make it easier for you I have made a downloadable measurements form with explanation regarding on how to properly take the measurements from your body
https://www.dropbox.com/s/eh0wghqhorc0udq/DRAFTALONG%20-%20Measurements%20form.pdf

Gentle side support is added in some of the styles

Can you custom sew a swimsuit for me only from knowing my cap bra and panties size?

Yes! Custom orders like that are more than welcome and
I'll be more than happy to visualize your dream and make it into a reality!
