Love my new suit!!! It fits perfectly and is sexy yet modest! Something that is very hard to find today. this suit covers the areas you want it to cover, and feel comfortable while at the beach rather than being self conscious of how I look instead of enjoying my family and kids. Have had so many compliments on it and my friends wanting to know where I got it 😍 So worth the money!

**********************SHIPPING TO CANADA & THE USA**************************

Shipping to Canada & the USA does include tracking & insurance.

Delivery usually takes, 3 to 5 days for the Western Provinces of Canada, 5 to 7 days for the Western United States and 8 to 10 days, for all other locations.

When your order has shipped, I will send you a notification, through Etsy. If you have not already done so, you will need to set " email preferences" on your Etsy account, to ensure that you receive this notification .



Shipping to most countries takes about 2 weeks but since there is no tracking or insurance for International Air Mail, there is no way to say when the parcel will arrive. 99% of parcels do arrive but can take as long as 4 weeks and Canada Post doesn't declare International parcels lost until 60 days have passed.

If a parcel goes missing or is damage , I can not put a claim in with the Post Office. The only way to be compensated, for a lost or damaged international parcel , is by upgrading to either Track Packet or Express

Tracking for countries other than Canada & the U.S. is available by Track Pack International.This service takes 8 to 14 days and costs on average an additional $40
than the shipping amount shown in the listing. For exact delivery times and costs and payment details, please convo me. I will need to know the style/s size/s you will be ordering and your city, country and postal code.

Please note that international buyers are responsible for any duties and customs charges that may be added by your country's import policies.

******************INTERNATIONAL EXPRESS SHIPPING***************************

International Express Shipping delivery times, are between 5 and 10 days, with an average an additional cost of $60. For exact delivery times and costs and payment details, please convo me. I will need to know the style/s size/s you will be ordering and your city, country and postal code.

Express is in reference to shipping times only. All items are made by hand. Please allow 7 to 14 days for your order to be created. Some times items are in stock ( I will let you know, when I send your order confirmation if your is: )

Please convo me before ordering if you have any questions regarding shipping.

Additional policies and FAQs
Frequently asked questions;

How do I choose the right size?

Answer: All my listings include detailed guides, with measurements & bra sizes where applicable.

To insure the best fit possible, PLEASE take the time to measure yourself and USE the size guide. You will get a much better fit , than just winging it and going with your "usual size" : )

Just like clothing bra sizes can differ greatly from one company to another. The fit of this design is based on the U.S. sizes as found at
So even if you have been professionally fitted for bra size, I strongly recommend that you use the link provided in each applicable listing,to determine your actual bra size.

If you order a two piece in a different size top & bottom, I may request measurements associated with the item you are ordering.

Still unsure? Fear not, I'm here to help, just ask !

*******************************CUSTOM & PLUS SIZES***********************************

Q: Are your designs available in Plus Sizes?

My standard sizes are xsmall (2-4) to xl (15-17) .Plus sizes are available for some bottom styles as Custom orders, during the fall and winter.

Q: Do you do custom designs?

Yes I am available for custom work, between September and February only.

Q: Can I order the suit pictured in the listing in a different color?

Answer: I have many other fabrics not listed . Choosing your own fabric is a Custom order , please contact me between Sept and Feb.

Let me know which style/s you are interested in and I will send you up to date color charts, for all available solid color and printed fabrics

Q: Do you have other fabrics not shown in the color charts?

Answer: YES! I have many other fabrics . If you are looking for something specific , please send me a picture or a link of want you want. Again this is a custom order and only between September & February.


Q: What is Tummy Control ?

Answer: To create Tummy Control, I replace the regular swimsuit lining for the front of the bikini bottom, with a mesh lining called Power Net. It's the kind of fabric that girdles are made of but is still smooth and not scratchy .

The lining starts about an inch below the top edge of the bottoms so won't cut in at the waist or create a "muffin top". By using the Power Net lining, in front only your tummy is held in without squashing your backside flat!

Q: Do I need to order a bigger size for bottoms with Tummy Control?

Answer: All swimwear brands fit differently. PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO MEASURE YOURSELF & use the size guide. You will get a better fit, than if you just wing it and order your "usual size"


Q: How long does shipping take?

Answer: see Shipping Policy above.

Q: Can I return my item ?

Answer: See Refund Policy above
