Posting photos of myself in a swimsuit is never something I thought I would ever do! Blogging is great for pushing your boundaries, hey?
Here is my Bombshell swimsuit from Closet Case Files. Heather Lou did a magnificent job on this pattern! This is my second one, and this suit makes me feel like a pin-up princess, which is saying a lot!
Here is the knitty gritty-
I made a size 10 graded to a size 12 in the hips. Horray for pear shapes!
I looked around for matte swimsuit Lycra, but the fabric stores in my area were lacking, so I just used the reverse side.
I added in moulded cups to add some support and modesty. Nobody wants to get nipply at the beach!
If I made this again I might lengthen it a bit. It's not uncomfortable as it is, but I feel like it might fit better. I would also reduce the width in the front crotch piece. I found that there was a little bit of extra fabric there that could be slightly unflattering.
All in all I love this swimsuit. I felt uber confident and totally hot at the beach while wearing it, which is pretty big. And that wasn't just because of the 35° heat!
Hope you all are having a fantastic summer!
