A Dream Come True...Custom Bikinis


Each spring/summer, I browse through the Victoria's Secret catalog hoping to find the perfect swimsuit. Each year, I am let down. I never love the styles and I never love the patterns/colors. If, on the rare occasion, I do find something, I am overwhelmed with the fear that once I wear it, I'll see someone else at the beach/pool with the same suit. This has happened way too many times for me to note and because of it, I have stopped ordering from them all together.

Although I found my newest bikini crush in Hawaii and while I am trying to figure out my next purchase (I'm thinking metallic silver...), I still wish I knew how to sew so I could make my own suits the way I want them.

Enter Mikini, a gem I found on Pinterest (of course). Mikini allows you to customize your own bikini through their bikini builder mixing styles and colors to your preference. What?? This is seriously like a dream come true! I can make my own suit from their amazing assorted colors/prints and I don't have to thread a needle (is that what you need to do to sew??)

Once I found the site, I spent HOURS -- honestly, too many to even admit -- building so many options I am having a hard time pulling the trigger on one. Here is what I put together so far...I think I have a thing for stripes.




Which one to choose?? I have no idea and it's eating away at me (not really but it's a tough choice). I want to order all three but I would rather start with one and see how it fits/quality before committing.

Which one do you like best? Do you like idea of customizing your own bikini or would you rather just buy what's out there?

  8. Stopstopstop that is the best idea ever! Why did I not think of that-- if there's one thing that needs to be customized because of shapes it's definitely bikinis! Love it!

  12. This is genius! A custom bikini is what we all need - I am 2 different sizes on the top and bottom and it's always tough finding the perfect fit
