Swimwear That You Dare To Wear

Compiled by Cynthia Horner

Right On! Digital’s spotlighting four hot brands of swim wear and cover ups that customers might dare to wear!

Let’s start with Avid Swim,  a sustainable luxury swimwear brand based in New York City. The brainchild of Black female entrepreneur and designer, Gionna Nicole. Her brand captures a unique design by mixing bold graphic prints with creative cuts. Each collection includes interchangeable separates that can be worn as ready-to-wear ensembles exuding ‘Sexy, Sporty and Chic’.

With COVID affecting sales for most entrepreneurs, Gionna Nicole opted to focus her attention on the idea of escapism. Reminding travelers that the quarantine will end and the “new” normal will emerge with swimwear for any woman looking to make a statement. Gionna pushed the celebration of women of varying body types, showcasing a new assortment of highly designed, trending forward cover-ups and swimwear. “I wanted to highlight exotism in nature by creating and mixing animal prints such as leopard and zebra while adding bold tropical florals and deep green brush,” says the designer.

Avid Swim’s options include trendy suits for both men and women sizes up to XXL!

SageSwim is a swimwear line that embodies modern day women of all races, shapes and sizes. By intertwining and contrasting style and personalities. It was born out of a desire to create pieces that are missing from your closet, pieces that are playful, eccentric and sexy.

It is for the daring and the experimental. It provides statement pieces to express oneself. With a main focus of giving  a second skin feel while making women feel empowered in them.  Check out more of these sexy suits at www.sageswm.com.

Peixoto is inspired by nostalgia and accentuates the figure and provides comfort.  A cross between the tiny style that reveals too much and overly large brief that often conceals feminine beauty.

We are also loving the Capittana line, which was founded in October 2014 by Raffaella and Stefano, sister and brother, and started as a small start-up to offer fashion-forward and high-quality swimwear to the women of Peru. Since then, operations
