My new favourite cossie
A review of Seabright Swimmer
I’ve made the cashmerette ipswich and this as my new swimmers. I’m in the plus side range and needed to make some swimsuits that I was both comfortable in and less likely than my purchased one to cause a nipslip! I really loved this pattern. I didn’t make an FBA but really should have and should have sized up the sleeves for easier on/off. I made the plus size tester version so the final sleeve sizing may be better suited to my arm circumference. I loved the arm coverage here – great to reduce the amount of sunscreen I have to coat myself in for an overseas holiday. While the front is quite low cut, I felt the arm coverage cancelled out my discomfort about being too “on show” – possibly chalk that feeling up to my repressed Irish genes (or the associated Catholic school upbringing). Looking forward to version number 2 (with the FBA and aforementioned wider sleeves).
