Tell us about your business.

At Exelnt Designs, we aim to take the frustration out of buying a swimsuit. We have been making custom swimwear for ALL WOMEN, plus-size, full-figure and hard-to-fit women for 34 years. Fitting women that have a hard time finding a flattering bathing suit that fits properly is what we do best! All of our custom swim suits can be ordered in all fabric colors. Look over the styles that are available, and if you are not sure what to order, contact Exelnt Designs and we will be glad to help you decide what's best for your body shape. Most of our swimwear can be ordered by the bra cup size. Some suits are designed for D and DD cups and others for F to KK cups. Standard cups will fit A, B, and C cups. Most standard cups will also have a hidden pocket in the bra lining so you can add a lift or shaper to enhance the bust size. We can custom make a swim suit and custom fit a bathing suit to meet your specific needs.

Tell us about your workspace, shop, or studio.

Our manufacturing plant is the root of the business. Starting from the drafting table, to the cutting table, on to the sewing machines. Taking pride with every swim suit stitched.

What inspires you?

Real women

What makes your business stand out?

Starting off from a small apartment building up the company, making every thing in our Warren Michigan factory. Any special request from customers is never a problem. That is what makes the business speak for itself.

What advice would you give an aspiring creative entrepreneur?

Work hard, even though it sometimes feels impossible. It is possible. Keep pushing forward, you will get there.

What does American Made mean to you?

American Made is when Americans make the products, keeping our selves in business, living the American dream.
