Why made to measure?

We've found that everyone is different and lots of us don't fit standard swimwear. You may have a long torso, be a size 10 on top and 16 down below. You may need a pocket sewn in for a prosthesis or want a scar/tattoo covered, or shown?? We're all different!

That's why we make our swimwear to measure, so you can personalise the listed styles by choosing a combination of fabrics we have in stock and by adding features if you wish. All styles can be made as a one-piece or a two-piece.

We love the styles of swimwear people wore between the 1900s and 1950s. Luckily, nowadays, there are fabrics that last well in chlorine and sun, they hold tummies and busts in place and there's no need for saggy bums when togs are wet. Our fabrics and threads are 50+ UV protective and last super well in chlorine.

Please feel free to contact us with questions or requests via the contact page. Tell us what you would like.

We look forward to hearing from you soon,

Annemiek & the Swanwear team
