Is it just me or do you find yourself constantly contorting to readjust your swimsuit straps while worrying you might accidentally expose yourself to a crowd of beachgoers?
I can’t be the only one – right?
Back in 2011, lying on a beach in Honolulu, I found myself in this same old dilemma when suddenly, it hit me:
Why isn’t there an easier way for us to soak up the sun risk-free while avoiding unwanted tan lines? Surely there must be a better way. Someone should have figured out a better solution by now - right?
That same year, my attention quickly shifted to starting a family. The next thing I knew, I was busy juggling a corporate job and raising little ones. Years went by, but still, in the back of my mind, this idea never went away. I grew all the more frustrated that there was still no reliable solution I could buy for myself, especially one that would keep me secure as I chased after my kiddos.
It was time to take action. If other people could create successful products and businesses, then why not me?
So, I embarked on a multi-year journey of incessant learning about garment creation, starting a small business, the importance of branding, and so much more. At the same time, I knew I wanted to use this opportunity for a greater good: to empower each other, bridge gaps in our differences, unite through our innate beauty, and simply celebrate life! Somehow these fell together in one place: providing beautiful, trustworthy, backless apparel that brings women together under a shared mission to keep it real and feel free—free from insecurities, limits, fears, naysayers...everything holding us back from sharing our best.
I created STAYkini™ for us because I believe that we all deserve a little luxury. Whether you’re a dreamer, a doer, an athlete, a caregiver, anything between or all of them together — STAYkini™ was made for you!
So, don’t delay in treating yourself – SHOP NOW. You deserve it!
