In case you still haven’t noticed it yet, I literally go crazy over one of a kind bikinis! Since I only have my occasional getaways once in a blue moon ( because hi busy friends! Haha ) I always see to it that I have something nice to wear. The past weeks prior to our Crystal Beach Getaway, I’ve been all over instagram shops searching for bikinis! I can’t find anything I like, either it’s too mainstream or I don’t know, just doesn’t scream BUY ME!!!!
Then I thought of having a custom made bikini. I’ve contacted a few bikini shops that do MTO (made to order) until I came across Swimees Closet on instagram which makes custom bikinis and is the cheapest that I could find. I got this bikini inspiration from Pinterest and I instantly fell inlove with it!

*Here’s what I got as the final product. Minus the safety pin. I just felt that I needed that extra support for my two babies! Haha
I was informed before ordering the bikini that they can’t provide the lace and mesh polka dots. So as expected it will not look exactly the same. In fairness, I also liked it without the lace skirt around it. I’d still wear them like that. But I love laces!!! Luckily I know a thing or two about sewing (I love sewing and DIY stuff) that’s why I bought 2 yards of lace at Carolinas (SM Megamall) then sew the lace myself. I also replaced the safety pin with a Chinese Button on the cleavage area to add extra support to my bikini top. And Voila!
Tip* Swimees Closet has cut off dates twice a month so be sure to check their cutoffs first to make sure that your bikinis will make it just in time. Waiting time is a about two weeks! But all worth it.
Let me know whay you think! ☺️
