Go Figure

www.leichic.comLooking hot in a bikini is simple. Just ask those nice gals from the Sports Illustrated covers.

Wait, so you weren’t born with Bar Refaeli’s bust and Marisa Miller’s midsection?

Nope, you’ve got your own Swimsuit Issues. But don’t worry – they can be solved with a call to Suit Yourself Bikinis.

Maui designer Kathleen Bruening’s swimwear is all custom-made – “it’s your body, your suit,” as she says – and she can create a flawlessly fitting suit that plays up your best assets, from dramatic assymetrical bikinis to more modestly cut one-pieces.

Everything is customizable – you can mix and match tops from her designs, or she’ll make suits based on your own sketches. She’ll even make recreations of your favorite swimsuit, and can add fun details like hand-braiding, stripes, crystals, or textured geometric patterns.

Bruening has tons of tricks on figure flattery. Got a belly? She may fashion a tankini with bright colors around the bust, and thicker, darker fabric over your midsection. Got wide hips? Bruening knows to avoid any straight lines – a slight scoop in front will make you appear slimmer. She can also create hourglass figures on boyish types, and knows how to avoid the dreaded saggy-butt look, the doom of so many wet suit bottoms.

Even if you’re not on Maui, Bruening can talk you through taking your measurements over the phone. She helps clients of all shapes and sizes, and says the suits are all about feeling comfortable in your own skin.

Now go strut your stuff.
