Despite what’s said about Hill staffers and Georgetown residents, people around here are not actually made with cookie cutters.
Most bathing suits, however, are.
But that’s changed with the launch of Ummara, an online custom swimsuit boutique. The small Costa Rica-based label’s designs are now available to anyone, anywhere.
The bare-bones (okay, slightly J.V.) site offers an array of choices like nothing else. Select from countless styles and mix-and-match bottoms (high cut, low cut, string, side tie, ruffle, with a skirt, without) and tops (at least a half dozen types of halters alone, plus string, bandeau, padded, underwire — the list goes on and on).
Fabric options are just as plentiful (a rainbow of colors, stripes, paisley, stars, polka dots, florals, geometrics). Pick out the cut that’s right for you, send your measurements, and they’ll whip you up a suit, rapidamente.
All are fully lined. And, better yet, cost around $30 per piece.
Which is good. Because while no two people are the same, everyone loves a bargain.
