Wow, this is a gorgeous suit and to mimic what everyone else said you have the perfect beach body for it! 

Question, do you line the legs/waist with elastic at all? Or do you make it small enough to stretch to fit your body? I am trying to make a suit but the elastic seems to dig.  =(

I lined the legs with elastics.. but not the waist.. and yes the waist line stretches to fit mostly.. if your elastic is "digging" then you probably just need to lengthen it per leg

I didn't use a "lining".. i actually bought extra material.. so i just used the same material as the lining.. so no.. i wouldn't say you needed one! sorry this is so late!

It looks great! Kudos on even attempting a swimsuit - I'm scared to even sew on that sort of fabric. But you did and it turned out great! I especially love the 2nd bottoms.

And because there's a lot of discussion about us disproportionately endowed women, I have to throw in a plug for bravissimo.com. They sell clothing, bras, and swimsuits made specifically for women that are busty but not large overall and I <3 them. I've been as large as a 32F and I hear your pain when it comes to swimsuit shopping at regular stores. Especially now that I've had and nursed kids, I need more support that I cannot get in an "L" top (baggy around the ribs) but I need the cup volume.

I like the second bottoms a lot.  They do look more comfy than the first ones.  I love the whole thing though!

awh!! i'm totally excited now! I swear i looked forever for a website that had even close to my size and couldn't find anything... i found a few grandma looking bras.. but this site actually has what i would consider "normal" ones.. i should be a 26E (at least i've been told).. but i guess a 28DD should work.. it will definitely work better than the 32/24 D's ive been wearing!
