How does custom sizing work?
We have realized there are huge flaws in the pre-set sizes of the world, and have decided to work to change that. We want every customer to have the best fit possible! By giving us your accurate band and hip measurements, you hand us the ability to make something that will fit your body without pinching, squeezing, or interrupting your range of motion. Your girls will stay in place, and your booty will stay covered throughout ALL activities you choose to do in your bikini. We want to change the way the world sees size and fit! And for now, this is a good place to start.
Measure around your body, just below your bust with a flexible tape measure. This is generally different from the number in your bra size! If you don't have a tape measure handy, use a piece of string and a ruler.
Measure around your body at the widest part of your hips where a bikini would sit, with a flexible tape measure. If you don't have a tape measure handy, use a piece of string and a ruler.

Rinse bikini in room temperature water after every use to keep fabric fresh and clean from the natural damages of salt and chlorine. This will elongate the life of your bikini and keep it from losing elasticity. Always hang to dry.
