A lot of women don’t like buying swimsuits because of fit problems. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a swimsuit custom-made to fit you? Customized Swimsuit is a company that specializes in swimwear that’s essentially built to fit your specific size and body figure. Owner Lorne “C.C” Gagnon has been designing swimsuits in Canada since 1991. He brought his creative talents to the online world and created a website that caters to consumers in need of personalized services.
The website does not just cater to women, but also to men. You can choose from different fabrics and prints for your customized swimsuit. Additionally, they also have beach dresses and accessories to offer. The order will be created according to your sizing specifications so you would be expected to provide your bustline, cupsize, ribcage, waist, hips and torso measurements. They also have a section that specifically caters to people with medical or special needs. This category provides swimsuits that are great cover-ups for problem areas like scars or burns.
Prices for women’s tops range from $40 – $105; bottoms are $50 – $75. Men’s boardshorts are $49 and women’s sundresses and beach dresses are $70 – $120. They have a nice range of styles to choose from – bandeaus, tankinis, monokinis, halter tops, blousons and many more. You can mix and match differently styled tops and bottoms to create a unique look that speaks you.
Their website, regrettably, is outdated. The user interface is a little tacky and things are quite disorderly so it is a bit hard to locate categories and such. Also, they do not have a design center where you can choose and view your customized design and product. No options to add extra artwork, text or whatsoever. You can, however, choose the prints to go with the products you order but this makes for a very limited customizing service.
Production and shipping takes about 10 business days. Expedited shipping options are also available upon request and for an extra charge. They have 100% Satisfaction Guarantee so if you are not fully satisfied with your purchase, you can opt to return it within 10 business days for an exchange or a full refund.
Although Customized Swimsuit aims to help women of all sizes have the perfect swimsuit, their website as well as the design options are outdated. It might be hard to find a trendy or contemporary designed swimsuit for the modern-aged women. But if you are after the perfect fit and not the trend or the experience in buying, then this could still be worth trying.
The designer might be good but he is very pushy. I was startled by his attitude when I was in there.
