I have never felt so incredible and comfortable in a suit like I do in this selkie piece. The fit and material is perfect and even better that I can adjust both the bottom and top. Delivery was super quick, cute packaging too :) Thank you so much!

General fit & sizing
Lycra/spandex is forgiving, by nature, but please look over sizing notes in the description of each suit to find the best fit for you.
My designs are meant to fit the body like a second skin, with minimal compression & structure. I design them to feel secure, but not restrictive. They aren't meant to change the shape of your body, only decorate it as it is.
I aim to offer sizes from XS to XL, but, at any given time, some of these sizes may be under-represented in the online store. Contact me if you have a special request re: size/print combination and I will try to fulfill it if I have the material.
Bikini top sizes will correlate with bra sizes thusly:
extra small - AA
small - A/B
medium - B/C
large - C/D
extra large - DD
Bikini bottom sizing will generally follow this matrix:
extra small - 2 to 4 (hips minimum 32")
small - 4 to 6 (hips minimum 34")
medium - 6 to 8 (hips minimum 36")
large - 10 to 12 (hip minimum 38")
extra large - 12 to 14 (hips minimum 40")
All suits on the site are constructed from a lycra-spandex blend, either fully reversible, or lined with powermesh. However, all lycras are not created equally...
I will note in the description if the suit is constructed with a more 'delicate' blend; there are some prints which are so lovely, I think they are worth babying. These suits are vulnerable to scratchy concrete poolsides, splintery wooden benches, and creekside twigs and rocks. If you fall in love with a 'delicate' lycra suit, just treat it as you might your bare bottom - sit on a towel!
Beautiful things are often the most ephemeral... but with tender care, even a delicate suit should give you a nice run.
Unless noted 'delicate,' most of my lycras are standard swimsuit weight and don't particularly need to be babied. Always rinse your selkiesuit in freshwater after contact with salt water or chlorine; this will keep the fabric from degrading and loosing its stretch prematurely.
