What do we do?
We design swimsuits inspired by the stories of women that have disfigurement, disabilities and chronic illnesses. All swimsuits are designed with the input of members of this community so that not only them, but all of our customers can feel empowered to tell their story and learn how to accept and love themselves.
How does it work?
We work directly with members of the community to design swimsuits that make them feel comfortable and confident in their bodies. We collect data about fit and preference from them before starting our design process. Before we make samples, we share our designs with them to get feedback and once the design is approved we go into sample making and then production.
Creating swimsuits inspired by the experiences of the disability, disfigurement and chronic illnesses community helps lower stigma since not only does the swimsuit positively represent their experience, but also each suit comes with a bag that has a story printed on it for our collaborators to feel more comfortable sharing their story with others. We hope that by sharing their story, more people can understand the experience of this community and we can inspire all to feel more comfortable and confident in their own bodies.
Why do we do what we do?
In 2016, there were 486,000 burn injuries in the US and each year approximately 150,000 babies are born with birth defects. A recent study found that more than a third of people with visual difference are discriminated at work. People with disabilities are still twice as likely to be unemployed. People fear that which they don’t understand. With your help, we can raise awareness and empathy towards this resilient community.

Are we sustainable?
Sustainability starts at the beginning of our design process, our packaging and continues throughout the lifespan of your suit. Our packaging is 100% recycled. All of our swimsuits are made with Italian sun-protective fabrics made from sustainable, regenerated polyamide yarn. The fabric is twice as resistant to chlorine and suntan oils so that your swimsuit can stay with you for many years to come.
