Summer Body Confidence

summer body confidence

Who doesn’t love the extra long days, the feel of sunshine on our faces, fresh foods and perhaps even a chance of a holiday. All good things right?! But, among the joy there can be a LOT of challenges for those of us on this journey to body acceptance.

During summertime, we get extra bombarded with images of bikini-clad gals and ripped torsos guys. Diet talk goes EVEN MORE mental as people feel the pressure to drop a dress size, get ‘beach body ready’ and get rid of their ‘orange peel’ thighs.

We’re expected to throw off our clothes, frolic in the waves and reveal our skin to the world carefree, when inside we’re often feeling uncomfortable secretly wishing for Autumn when we can pull out the chunky knitwear again. Am I right?

Those feelings of being ‘too fat’ are down to the demons in your head making you feel awful about yourself. You can be happy at any size, seriously. And you can wear whatever makes you happy. Clothing is an expression of your personality and babe, if they’re making it in your size then damn straight you can wear it! Don’t let anyone make you feel less for wanting to be extra.

You have a right to eat whatever you want and enjoy yourself. This is VERY important to remember. You have the right to eat, the right to take up space and the right to enjoy yourself. Summer BBQs, overindulging on holidays are part of LIFE. You are allowed to partake in pleasure. I know that it’s super hard to let go of those fears that people are making judgements about what you’re eating – but f‘em. It’s none of their business.

Warm weather can be such a joy, but I know too well that there are a LOT of challenges too. Body confidence and body acceptance come over time. So don’t beat yourself up if you’re still at the start of your journey. Just keep going…

tiny tan lines

tiny tan lines

Being a summer girl through and through has its perks. Yes, I confess I love all beautiful guilty things of life, but most of all I love spring and summer, and I basically live in a bikini four to six months a year. I live pretty close by the ocean so I use any excuse whatsoever to go to the seaside. Plus I’m very fortunate to have a pool close by. I also love fashion, which can have its downs because when it comes to swimwear trends I’m always torn. I love to feel comfortable, to tan, to wear thong style bikinis – the tinier the better –  I also love micro bikinis, especially the high waisted ones.

So you see my predicament. What do I do?

In reality I do nothing. For tiny tan lines I always wear string bikinis, I keep the bikini trends for social media. I believe it’s important do do your own thing! But I love to play with the strings – up, down, and again, up, and down – for boredom sake you know. And also cause of tiny tan lines.

Funny thing is as of this spring I’ve noticed a massive comeback to the 80’s high waisted thong (our Vidora), and the 70’s tiny front and back scrunch super high waisted string bikini style (our Vduri). Our tiny triangle bikini tops with the same adjustable super thin strings are always popular because of their simplicity. Mix and match them and for extra long legs pull the bottom bikini stings high on the hips.

At the end of the day when it comes to anything really do what makes you happy. And what makes you look good. It’s a great feeling though when the Gods of fashion and planets of style align and you’re on the same sartorial frequency.

YAY!! Its finally spring!!! My favorite time of year!! Right now in California it’s still really rainy and cold.

Raised in sunny Southern California, our designers divide their time between several beaches in places like Hawaii, Australia, California and Florida, but design and produce the swimwear in beautiful sunny San Diego. Driven to make beautiful and simplistic great fitting bikinis, they have a passion for life and a not so serious attitude that allows them to fulfill their dreams and have a lot of fun doing it.

Inspired by travel, but also more than that, the designers attribute their creations to their friends, family, and friends who are family, photographers, models, moms, artists and all businesswomen.

the seamless bikini

seamless bikini

We all know seamless bikinis are everywhere in many styles, colors and prints. So the question is are seamless bikinis right for you? I mean who doesn’t love the soft and beautiful seamless look? So how does this bikini design measure up during beach, pool or lake activities. Such as surfing, volleyball, swimming or wake boarding? – Just to name a few!

Firstly, several years ago when we were the first to design and manufacture seamless swimwear, but there was very little interest. We only sold a few hundred. So our idea of a seamless bikini design was put on hold. A couple of years ago we noticed a new Australian bikini brand knocked off our very much unique one of a kind design. Our team made the simple decision to launch our seamless design once again. We figured out how to add quality American made elastic to our seamless bikinis without compromising the character of the cut. Our seamless bikini has been a bigger success because of the fit and because it doesn’t stretch out – the Vallée!

All right back to the fit of this seamless beauty! So for the ladies out there that own seamless bikinis, you already know the truth. Seamless bikinis are not the best for activities. They are viewed to be more of a fashion statement. The fabric tends to move, twist, slide and creep in ways that’s almost impossible to control, however some girls like this all over textured scrunch look. Honestly at first I was not fond of any seamless bikinis, but now I love the alternative look.

These bikinis may be a lovely fit for you if you are looking for a fashion statement. And for those active ladies that love surfing, volleyball and all around outdoor play, the double stitch bikini is still your best bet for reliability, comfort and fashion.

I usually like to travel with at least four different styles of bikinis so that I know I will always have the perfect bikini for the desired location and also so I have an extra dry one or two on hand.

One of our most popular styles is the Vahana. The Vahana is a stylish, cute and cheeky “wear anywhere” bikini for active women. So if you’re planning to go surfing, body boarding, kite surfing, or play beach volleyball this super cute and fun cheeky bikini is for you.

Now what’s great for resort locations is either our Viu thong cut one piece (monokini), or our Vallée seamless high cut cheeky thong bikini. The simplistic design of Vallée comes in simple classic sexy colors. Because both styles are sexy, simple, classy and exquisite, the designs perfect for high end resort locations. 

If your looking for a little less coverage bikini for tanning and Vegas pool play our Vamp fitted thong bikini, or our low in the front daring Vicuña cheeky bikinis are great choices. Also our new Vidora high cut seamless thong bikinis and Versant tie side thong bikinis are an excellent choice.

tie side thong bikini

tie side thong bikini

Our Tie Side Thong Bikini the “Versant” is extremely popular and a favorite choice for many reasons. First and foremost the fit is amazing. All of our Tie Side Thong Bikinis are designed to be worn high or low on the hips while bring attention to the derriere. Each tie side bikini bottom style actually suits a variety of body shapes, so you know you’ll be able to find the best style to accentuate your shape! Naturally the wonderful thing about all of our tie side bikinis is they are adjustable for that perfect comfortable fit.

We use soft and beautiful light weight performance fabrics and thread so when on it almost feels like you’re wearing nothing at all. Surfers love this classic bikini because not only does it stay on when surfing it looks super cute and sexy! 

Besides being great for beach and pool activities, most girls find our Tie Side Versant perfect bikini for tanning.

This is our most most popular bikini to mix and match so every few months we try to release a few new colors and prints. We promise to keep this beautiful Tie Side design in our line up of bikinis because of it’s timeless yet sexy look.

summer time

summer time

When we think of summer time we think of the beach or the pool, but most importantly, we think “Bikini Season”! Some women freak out, while others can’t wait to throw on their favorite Bikini that they practically lived in the summer before. Just like summer, what you wear to your summer time festivities shouldn’t be complicated, but simple. Whether you fancy a cheeky style over a brazilian, a thong over a micro bikini, it stands to say that whatever you desire you should feel comfortable in.

For the past several years we have tried to make the process of selecting that perfect suit easy by creating styles that not only enhance a woman’s features, but also allows a woman to feel sexy while maintaining a level of comfort and style. We’ve created a lifestyle brand of suits that should empower a woman, bringing life into her soul while keeping fabrics and strings to a minimum; I mean, let’s be honest, who wants a mess of fabric bunching up or a bunch of long strings to figure out.

Over the course of time, women who’ve showed off their bodies where looked down upon and judged. They were constantly told what to wear and how to portray themselves. Women were expected to keep to themselves and be mindful of their thoughts and actions; but not anymore. No longer are women expected to stand in the shadows, but to stand tall and embrace all that they are; that not only do our minds have a voice, but what we do with our bodies is ours to manage. Gone are the days when we hide in shame because of somebody else’s opinion. There is no shame in loving the skin you are in.

So, as summer time approaches, go ahead and BE YOU! Be bold. Be Sexy. Be Empowered. We only have one life; why waste it on a bikini that doesn’t make us feel our best!

the cheeky bikini

the cheeky bikini

It’s great to see how popular the Cheeky Bikini has become. We designed and put into production our first Cheeky Bikinis over fifteen years ago. When we first released our Cheeky Bikinis we received a hate letters from a very popular lingerie, swimwear and sporting goods company saying that our bikinis were an “insult to women”. Funny how things have changed in fifteen years – that same swimwear and sporting goods company now manufactures cheeky bikinis and smaller…glad to see they finally figured it out – and that popular lingerie company no longer manufactures bikinis.

The biggest reason the Cheeky Bikini became so popular is the empowerment of women – self confidence and the acceptance of all body types. What woman doesn’t look great when she’s feeling confident?

Also the popularity of the derriere is everywhere – just look at social media. We have always and will continue to put the focus on the derriere.

Besides our unique designs there are several things that separate us from other bikini companies. First and most importantly is we manufacture in the USA. Many companies claim they manufacture in the USA, but it’s just not true. Look closely at the current styles and you will see many swimwear and bikini companies have the exact same cut with the exact same colors and prints – sad. Several companies have labels with their logos made and then have companies sew their labels in to pre-made bikinis. Secondly we hand cut and hand sew each bikini. That’s the closest thing to a custom bikini as you can get. We also use light weight high performance fabrics, American made elastics and the strongest and softest thread available.

…we take great pride in each and every design and put love in to every product we make…

photo shoot adventures

Bikini photo shoots

For over eighteen wonderful and amazing years we’ve had the pleasure of working with hundreds of Bikini Models from every part of the world. Most of our bikini photo shoot adventures have been at fun locations such as luxury homes, beautiful private pools, castles, lakes, deserts in California and Nevada plus a multitude of beaches.

We all agree that the desert is our favorite for bikini photo shoot adventures. Probably because of it’s solitude and beautiful lighting. It gives us the opportunity to separate ourselves from the onlookers. There’s no doubt that a models level of creativity rises when she feels total comfort and freedom.

It’s almost impossible to describe the intensity and stress associated with scheduling and coordinating a photo shoot. Everything has to be perfect – bikinis, weather, models preparation, hair, make up, location availability, and most importantly the energy of the team.

Shortly after hair and make up are done the photo shoot begins. As the clicking of the camera starts things tend to lighten up a bit. Attention is now on the photographer and model connection. A great model needs very little direction – giving the photographer the opportunity to create a vision. Successful photo shoot adventures typically end with laughter, jubilation and a complete sense of accomplishment. A great creative team of photographers, make up artists, models and assistants is priceless.
