Well, talk about going above and beyond! We actually got to 51% of the original target - which is crazy impressive to accomplish in such a short period of time. As much as I prepared for this campaign and had SO MUCH help and support from everyone, there was a very big learning curve. I feel like we skipped over leaps and bounds and just went straight to flying, which is more my style anyway....
I have a few personal emails still to send out to the last minute orders, but this is a reminder that if you pre-ordered a wetsuit - please send over your height, weight, bra size, bust, waist, hip measurements if you haven't already done so. As you know, I will be reconfirming before I ship out next year, but I really need to have a good sense of the range of sizes to include in my order especially since it will be reduced due to the reduced target.
I will continue to make updates here, but I will also be creating a mailing list specific to this group to keep you in the loop (with the option to opt out if you prefer).
But in the meantime, LET'S CELEBRATE! Here are all the reasons to do so...
