So I tend to always avoid bathing suits that don’t have any padding. I’m a small chested girl so a little oomph is a must for me. I remember someone mentioning adding your own padding so I decided to give it a shot. First, I did a little research to find the right padding that would be appropriate for swimwear, I ended getting this one that is also available on Amazon (where they are also available in black).
Then I tried on the suit and made sure to locate exactly where I wanted the padding to go and pin it there with headpins.
with my very basic sewing kit, I sewed the padding in the lining (ONLY) and I removed the pins as I go.
I wore it to spend the day by the pool with the girls.
Thanks to J.Crew for this gorgeous swimsuit.
