Heading down to the beach the other afternoon, I decided to break out my new L*Space Wild & Free strappy bikini. I love the print and cut, which are both unique and stylish. Paired with some old school aloha shorts and camel hat , I probably looked ready to go on surfari with Wingnut and Patty O from Endless Summer. Beacons here in Leucadia is full of retro cats and this outfit fit right in with the best of them.

A Slice Of Life | Surf Bikinis Guest Series by Stephanie Schechter

Post Three - 1

Every spring, female surfers face a major challenge. No, not finding a lineup that isn’t blown out by 11am… but finding some bikinis that actually stay on while surfing- that still look, you know, cute! There are plenty of bikinis out there dubbed “Surf Swimwear,” but often times their fabric is stiff, their cuts are unflattering, and behold: they STILL fall off. Personally, I have found that for bikini bottoms, cheeky cut, seamless suits actually stay on, and flatter the form of any body type! Of course, for women who want to look awesome while remaining modest, there are plenty of seamless cut full coverage bottoms, which also flatter all shapes and sizes! As far as tops go, coverage can be key. Really, finding tops that stay on while surfing truly depends on body type. As a surfer on the bustier side, I have found that the more coverage and support, the better. Usually sports bra style tops stay on the best, but it is definitely not worth sacrificing style… Fortunately, there are some super rad brands that make some pretty rad tops that provide plenty of sporty support!

Meet Your Maker | L*Space Founder Monica Wise

MYM-LSpace13
Here at SWELL, we love bikinis. I mean, we LOVE bikinis. So naturally, we adore the woman behind one of the top bikini brands out there, L*Space. With six (6!) “Best Swim Brand of the Year” awards and iconic swim styles to spare, founder Monica Wise is the ultimate role model for aspiring designers and beach beach babes from coast to coast. We had a chance to stop by L*Space HQ and get a sneak peek into Monica’s success and next season’s bikinis. Sadly, there was no room filled floor the ceiling with bikinis to dive into a-la Scrooge McDuck, but we did find some pretty rad stuff searching for the mythical dream-room. Read on for a photo tour of L*Space and interview with the woman, the myth, the bikini legend…
