lycra matt

Slinky Matt Lycra

Printing on custom made swimwear requires special fabric. Slinky Matt Lycra glides over the body smoothly and provides great support and form, making it perfect for personalised swimwear. Lycra is the ideal platform for printing bold, colourful and intricate designs.
Start Design

lycra soft sheen

Lycra Soft Sheen

Slightly less supportive than Slinky Matt Lycra, however, our beautiful Lycra Soft Sheen is characterised by its shimmery surface, which makes prints and designs seem to come alive. This Lycra fabric makes a wonderful fashion swimsuit, which will look fresh and contemporary.
Start Design

sparkle lycra fabric

Sparkle Lycra

This beautiful fabric has an obvious glittery face that dances in the light & is a dream to wear. It has more resistance than the soft sheen, springing back to its original shape. Cold wash. Colourful designs; wash on its own. Mostly white designs; wash with whites or alone.

Designer Swimsuits Created By You

Personalised swimsuits can be a great way to show off your personal style in a truly unique way. Upload your design, make your own swimsuit, and leave the rest to us. Within a couple of days you could be strutting your stuff on the beach. 

Cut and Sew Swimsuit Kit

If you are a keen crafter and enjoy a touch of DIY, then why not take advantage of our cut and sew swimsuit kit? This option allows you to literally cut and sew your swimsuit yourself. Our technicians print your designs onto the fabric pattern in your selected size, along with the elastic. You can then have the fun of cutting your swimsuit at home and sewing it yourself. This is a great option for anyone who enjoys spending time on the sewing machine making their own clothes. You can select this option when you click the green "Start Design" button. 

Important: Please be aware that extensive use in waters with high salinity - such as the ocean - could cause the design on your swimsuit to fade over time. Please use at your own risk. 

Swimsuit Style it with

Style it with

What we love most about our handmade swimsuit is the fact that it can be worn in more than one way. Create the perfect relaxed holiday look and tie one of our Customised Sarongs around your waist, to give your swimsuit an extra dimension. You can complete the look by adding a pair of our Custom Made Espadrilles, and showcase your personal style from head to toe! The swimsuit can also be worn as a bodysuit and worn under jeans or our Custom Leggings, creating a beautifully streamline and sleek silhouette, which is so on-trend for the season. Top it off with our Customised Baseball Cap and create a designer wardrobe filled with personality.

Frequently asked questions:

I have quite a large cup size, would this swimsuit fit me?

As we make all of our exclusive swimsuits to order, we can make them in most sizes. Our current sizes range from a UK size 6-8 up to a UK size 30-32. We can create plus size swimsuits and swimsuits for petite sizes, so whatever your cup size, you should find our personalised swimsuit flattering and comfortable. If you have any concerns, please get in touch with us and we will do whatever we can to help find you your perfect swimsuit.

What is the cut and style like of the swimsuit?

A classic swimsuit design suits many body types. Our Custom Swimsuit with Straps is no exception. It features medium width straps, which are crucial for giving support to larger cup sizes. This personalised swimsuit also has a flattering high leg cut and a low scoop back, which gives it a touch of sex appeal, without having to show too much. Fitted and flattering, this swimsuit will look and feel great on many shapes and sizes.

Is this handmade swimsuit easy to dry and look after?

Our customised swimwear is not only a dream to wear, but it is also a dream to care for. Made from our strong and flexible Lycra, which is already water repellent, when your swimsuit gets wet, it just needs to be hung to drip dry, in the sun if possible, and you will find that within an hour or so, your suit will be dry. It also dries very evenly. Cleaning is easy too - simply wash on a 30 degree cycle and your print will continue to look crisp and fresh.

Print Guideline

  • DPI-Print Guideline Icon

    What's the best resolution to print in?

    We print at 200dpi, which is a good combination of quality and file weight. Ideally your image should be scaled to 100% at 200dpi, this means that no resizing of your file occurs stopping any interpolation.

  • Jpeg-Tiff Print Guideline Icon

    Should I save my file as a TIFF or JPEG?

    For multi-coloured or very detailed files we recommend using a tiff format, but they must be flattened. For simple colours and low detail files, a jpeg is fine.

  • RGB-CMYK Print Guideline Icon

    Which colour model should I choose? RGB or CMYK?

    If each individual colour is specifically important to your design, choose CYMK as our setup will print each colour with the closest possible match within our available range. If the relationship between the colours within the image is more important choose RGB, this will reduce all colours equally to fit within our range.

  • GSM ICON

    What does GSM mean?

    Grams per Square Meter (GSM) is an international standard for measuring the weight of paper or fabric. GSM uses the weight of a square meter (1000 x 1000mm) as an indication of the weight and thickness of a given fabric. We class 20-100gsm as light (summer fabrics, gauzes and fine silks), 101-249 gsm as medium (most clothing fabrics) and 250+ gsm as heavy (upholstery fabrics, and other specialist fabrics).

  • Fill Bleed Areas ICON

    What are bleed areas?

    When designing your product, it’s best to make sure that your image is slightly larger than needed. In printing, the extra printed image is referred to as a “Bleed Area” or margin, and it is removed from the finished piece. A bleed area acts as a buffer for slight inconsistencies in the manufacturing process. however, it’s important to fill your bleed areas completely, or you may end up with white, unprinted strips along the edge of your finished product.

  • Transfer-Print Guideline Icon

    Do you print on garments a customer supplies?

    Unfortunately not. All our garments are printed on flat fabric, and sewn into finished products, which gives a better finished result and all-over print. We test meticulously so that we know what gets best results on our fabrics, and our facilities cater perfectly to them. We do however print sublimation paper to order, so if you have access to a heat press you can press your fabrics or flat garments easily.

  • Pattern Alignment Across Seams ICON

    Can you Align a Pattern or design across panels of a garment?

    We always strive for the greatest accuracy when printing and constructing your garments. However, due to unavoidable stretch or movement of the fabric during the stitching process, we cannot guarantee perfect pattern registration across garment seams. We are generally accurate within 2-3mm, which Is close enough for most patterns, but may show slight issues with detailed geometric patterns.

  • print label option icon

    Can I print my own Labels?

    Most of our garments now come with printable label space for you to add your own company information and branding! If you would like to sew in your own labels, we also offer Printed Fabric Labels here.

  • Eco friendly Printing

    How is your fabric printing eco-friendly?

    With environmental consciousness in mind, our fabrics are all printed using completely water based inks. This means no chemicals or solvents are used. Our heat fixing procedure fixes the colours and prints, avoiding the downsides of steaming, such as excess or contaminated water returning into the waste system. We have one facility in London where we conduct all the printing, production and fulfillment.
