I was always curious with lingerie bodysuit, but couldn’t bring myself to buy something so expensive that I wouldn’t wear often, so I was happy when I won a bodysuit pattern at Merckwaerdigh ebay auction.
Although I usually wear 30B, but from my previous experience, I found out that my cup size for Merckwaerdigh is 30C. The body is in size S. I can’t say that making this bodysuit is an easy thing, but it was sure a great experience! The bodice is still a little bit too long for me, maybe because I’m not tall. The fit is still great, but it can be better. Next time I will reduce the length of the bodice.
The bodysuit is quite comfortable to wear, although obviously not meant for summer wear. But I can imagine wearing this in colder weather and enjoying the advantage of having my stomach covered.
