Tell Us About Your Design

This vintage inspired one- piece swimsuit has side panels sewn in to create the illusion of a monokini. The panels also help add shape that can create curves on more boxy figures. The suit would come in navy with white polka dots (and white side panels) or coral with nude polka dots (and nude side panels). The polka dots and bow- tied straps add some fun to the swimsuit.

Judges’ Comments: “I like this, but it needs a little work. I like the one-piece cut with side panels. I can see how that would be flattering. I am not a fan of the bow on the shoulder. It’s too much bulk. Maybe a silver or bamboo buckle would add visual interest without the bulk…. It has legs but it’s not running yet.” – Cynthia Smoot

    This suit is really cute and it looks comfortable.

    I agree with Ms. Smoot. I think that the swimsuit would be a super great design with a buckle or a latch instead of the bow. I don’t see people swimming with a bow. You could have a bow that is attachable so that if at a swim party someone may want to look ‘cuter’ but it probably wouldn’t work well in the water.
