I once purchased a swimsuit from JCrew in the size I buy clothing in. Big mistake. I managed to get it on but I honestly thought I was going to have to call someone over to my house to help me get out of it, like maybe a paramedic. It was that tight. The next year JCrew made a big announcement about how they were going to start selling swimsuits in sizes that corresponded to clothing sizes like it was the brightest idea ever.
I'm done with spandex for awhile. It's not really my favorite to sew with but when you need a new suit and you're a RTW faster you don't have many options. I've missed wovens. My next make is a woven and I find myself being more excited to sew because of the change in material.
Anybody else making a swimsuit this season? Or paddle boarding?!
