Specificities regarding underwear and swimwear
Underwear and swimwear must be very close to the body (for swimsuit, panties or boxers in particular because they are small parts for which the height is less important than the build and the age of the child ….) it is recommended not to take an age above the real age of the child. For example, as long as a child has not reached 7 years, make small pieces of swimwear and underwear in 6 years. If in doubt, it is better to take the size below than the size above.
The swimsuit has been designed to be fully lined for comfort. It is possible to double the swimsuit with the same fabric as the outer fabric, or you can also use the swimsuit lining which is less expensive.
