Description

The key to bathing suit perfection? Cups. Without them, my bathing suits have been flimsy, don’t stay in place, and then with tightening always end up too tight. For this one, I had some bathing suit cups on hand from a Bra Maker’s Supply order, and once I slipped them between the shell and the lining all my problems were solved: the bathing suit held its shape, stayed in place, and looked great. Who knew? Probably everybody except me…

    a bikini done very well, and a perfect fit! so true, thru trial i learnt that putting manufactured cups in a bikini top keeps the parts ‘symmetrical’ and uniform. i wondered why previously i couldn’t achieve it manually by sight, lolz. great work. x

    Nice! I want to make a bathing suit before the Memorial Day weekend, but I’ve never made one before, hopefully mine will be a success like yours :)
