Without a doubt, this is the most flattering swimsuit I have ever worn, and I wanted to share it with other women. No more body shame and self loathing in poorly lit dressing rooms. No more ill-cut, poorly made bathing suits that rarely fit and rarely flatter. Let's take back the beach. Let's take back the pool. Let's remember that summer is meant to be enjoyed, not endured while constantly adjusting or covering up.


Want to see this pattern in action? Check out Bombshells from around the web here.


The Bombshell is modeled on a classic 1950's silhouette, a style that harkens back to the golden era of flattering, sexy and modest swimsuits. The pattern includes 3 variations in 8 sizes: a gathered bust maillot, a halter neck, and a high waist bottom which you can mix and match with your favourite bikini top. Ruched on all sides and along the back center seam, the Bombshell hugs your curves while providing full but sexy coverage. Its booty encasing seat and skirt-like front ensure your butt is covered (literally), avoiding the dreaded 4-cheek butt-bulge of higher cut suits. Fully lined, it will keep you decent in or out of the water. This pattern can be sewn on a regular machine or a serger (instructions are included for both).
