Maillot De Bain -
Bespoke hand made swim, resort wear and accessories.
Everything is made to order.
I created Maillot De Bain in 2017 after struggling to find flattering styles of swimwear especially in a higher rise cut. I drafted my own patterns and created my own designs finding inspiration from the 80’s and 90’s. I wanted to create pieces which are finished to a high quality, comfortable and make women feel good about themselves.
One of my goals when creating the company was to design and create unique pieces unseen elsewhere. I wanted customers to have the freedom to mix materials and shapes to create something you will not see someone else wearing. Create your own piece, wear it your way.
With 10 years sewing experience, a degree in Costume with Textiles, and a background in professional Lycra dancewear I am very proud of the quailty of the pieces I create. All pieces are double their own material/fully lined and created on the correct machinery.
I chose to run my company as a bespoke service rather than having set styles in set colours and set sizes. I understand the majority of women are not the same clothing size in a bikini top and brief, different women want different levels of coverage within sets and different women suit different materials and shades. Running a bespoke service means I can cater to these needs.
Each piece is cut, overlocked, sewn, finished and packaged by myself, to order in the U.K.
