The Bombshell is modeled on a classic 1950’s silhouette, a style that harkens back to the golden era of flattering yet modest swimsuits.

The pattern includes 3 variations: a gathered bust maillot, a halter neck, and a high waist bottom which you can mix and match with your favourite bikini top. With flattering ruched seams, a booty encasing seat and a skirt-like front, the Bombshell hugs your curves while providing full (but sexy) coverage. Fully lined, it will keep you decent in or out of the water.

Bombshell swimsuit

Very, very nice fitting and easy instructions to follow (my first memade swimwear). The only negative is that it’s a lot of fabric and it takes quite a lot of time to dry, but I’m thinking of making another one with lighter lining because I love the model.
