How it works

Traditional bikinis are gorgeous. But a flimsy set of triangles and an itty bitty thong is no match for an active afternoon of tumbling in the waves. We believe in water wear that serves you, starting with stay-put, supportive bikinis you can wear on the beach, on a boat, or while you swim away from shore. When activities or weather call for additional protection, our zip up 2nd layer pieces add comfort from the sun, wind, boards and sea in an instant.
