Wild Sprouts Girls Swimwear - How Do I Know If She's a Long Torso?

I create the wildsprouts suits in two different size categories.....  regular torso and long torso.

The swimsuits are available in random and unique prints and colors.  I cut a range of sizes from each piece of cloth....from size 4 through size 12, mixing long torso cuts with regular torso cuts.

Long torso girls are surprisingly common and I don't know of another swimsuit manufacturer that is offering a one piece designed for them.  If your daughter fits better in the slim sizes of jeans, if even as a toddler she outgrows the length of her pants before she fills out the waistband, if all dresses seem to fit her as tunic tops, if her one piece swimsuits seem to always leave her a tan line that resembles a thong - she's probably a long torso girl! 

Let's make sure our daughters avoid the body shaming track - right from the start!  It's not her body that's wrong.  It's the lack of available clothing to fit her unique shape and style!  The shame should be on on the mass manufacturers and their photoshopped marketing images!

My long torso granddaughters who inspired the line. 

Wildsprouts Swimsuits for Girls with a Little Attitude!

The littlest granddaughter is also a long torso girl!  ....with a bit of attitute and a streak of fierce independence!  She gave her Wild Sprouts swimsuit quite a workout at Great Wolf Lodge

My daughter and other military wives met there to relax and support each other while waiting for thier husbands to come home from long deployments in Afghanistan. 

My daughter's advice after the trip?  "Great Wolf Lodge is fun!  But watch out for strange floating things in the toddler pool!"
