Welcome, are you interested in a handmade swimsuit? All the ordering info can be found here. If you would like to read a little more about how I started making suits see Info. You can also see pictures of some of the ladies who’ve acquired my suits over on the Lookbook page.

Colors

The colors available this season are:

+Sunwashed Blue

+Golden Hour
+Fawn (much lighter than last years brown)
+Dusty Rose
+Roasted Beet (light) [runs half a size smaller]
+Roasted Beet (dark) SOLD OUT (unless your are a S top + bottom of which I have one made up)
+Black [runs a little snug]

The fabric used for my suits is tricky to find so there are a few sources. Because of this the weaves are all just a tiny bit different. The Dark Roasted Beet is the same as the fabrics from last summer with the other colors being just a little less stretchy so I’ve updated my pattern according.

Sizing

Tops

Sizing for tops is XS S M L XL, the band is custom to you.

As for the band, that is custom cut it to your specific measurements as everyone is different. To measure find a flexible sewing tape and measure around your ribs under your bust, approximately where you think the clasp would go.

I did make a pattern for XXL tops, however, they didn’t seem to be a very good fit, so I’m working on a new one! In the meantime the largest size is an XL. If anyone who normally wears an XL or larger top has a swimsuit they love, I would be thrilled to see a picture of it. This will help me design a better one.

In my suits I wear a Large for a full coverage/sportier look and a Medium for a more classic look. My typical bra size is a 34 C/D depending.

 

Bottoms

There is no good way to measure bottoms as people are of all different shapes. With that in mind, the sizes below are based on waist measurement in inches, right around your bellybutton. Please measure with a tape, pants size range wildly and are totally inaccurate.

XS 24in-26in
S 26in-28in
M 28in-30in
L 30in-33in
XL 33in-36in
XXL 36in-40in

My suits are cut at quite an angle to accommodate a generous booty to waist ratio. If you are a straighter shape let me know and I will leave off the elastic at the waist, this seems to work for folks. In that case go for whatever size you think would fit your booty.

There are two different styles for bottoms, Grandma (cut lower on the hip/more coverage in the back) and Hot Mom (Cut a bit higher on the hip with a little more exposure). Over the past year I found that people with narrower hips or a slimmer booty (this is about shape not size) fit the Hot Mom style better as sometimes there can be too much fabric to fill out leaving the back a little loose. For other folks the Grandma style may be the answer to having your entire booty exposed in standard swimwear.

Check my recent Instagram posts for more details and photos on the two styles.

I wear a Medium in the Grandma style; my waist is 29in, hips 41in. My hip dimensions are the maximum size for the Medium.

If you have any questions about sizing don’t hesitate to email me! lilybyrnestudio@gmail.com


Pricing + Shipping

Suits are $112, payment is made once the suit is ready to ship.

It can often be tricky to find the right size so I am usually happy to make up two sizes and you can send back whatever doesn’t fit. This adds $4 but will make finding the right size easer and quicker than doing an exchange.

Its been a delight do have folks reordering, if that will be you this season here is a thank you!

Second Suit 10% Off
Third Suit 15% Off
Fourth Suit (for the wild ones) 20% Off


Shipping within the US included.

If you are international here are standard prices for the places I’ve shipped to so far. If you’re not on here, just let me know and I will check the postage at the post office next time I’m in.

Canada $10
Ireland/UK/Finland/Australia $12

Returns + Exchange

If you wish to exchange for a different size that’s no problem, just let me know within one week of arrival. Last season all the colors ran out so be prompt to be sure you don’t end up with a mix matched set (unless, of course, that’s what you want).

Exchanges within the US are $4-6, Canada $10, EU + AUS $14.

If your suit doesn’t fit I will take returns, as long as it is within one week of arrival. If I don’t hear from you within that time I will assume that you’re off enjoying the water somewhere. If you do return the suit, the product cost will be refunded and I ask you to cover the initial shipping and packaging cost which is around $6 US, $10 CAN, $12 EU+AUS

Materials + Care

The suit is made out of a much thicker than normal swimsuit material, almost like a thin neoprene with a soft inside. It feels great on and the divinely soft inside helps keep the suit in-place when you’re diving into all those beautiful lakes, rivers, and coves.

The fabric has been pre-washed, however, it could still bleed, so hand wash in cold water, scrunch instead of wring, and line dry. If there’s a little bit of dust on your suit when it arrives it’s just chalk from me marking things out. When possible I wash them in advance but often my markings help me figure out whose suit is whose as they are all slightly different.
