It’s no secret that South American women are known for their sexy and confident style when it comes to playing in the surf, however many of us may not have those impeccable tan beach bodies to flaunt. Designer of Feline Swimwear, Cecilia Guiulfo may have this covered for us.
Cecilia grew up on the beaches of Peru and combined her love of fashion with her love of the ocean to start a line of swimwear for women. She, along with her business partner, sole North American Feline Swimwear representative, and best friend, Alex Crawfurd, together have brought Cecilia’s unique swimwear line to the U.S. making it possible for you to channel your own inner beach goddess.
The brands mission is to provide swimsuits women just don’t like but that they love. And they do just that. “Feline Swimwear has always encouraged creativity and individuality not only when choosing the perfect bathing suit but in all facets of life. The line has been created so that with a few carefully selected pieces you can create a plethora of different looks, “ remarked Alex.
Feline Swimwear has done years of market research perfecting the blend of American and Brazilian cuts. She continued, “At Feline we are trying to instill in the minds of the American ladies that less sometimes is better and let me explain why…. If you have big behind, the LAST thing you want to do is stretch a piece of brightly colored fabric across it, THEN have all the extra fabric hang down. Trust me this is not a good look for anyone. From the skinny-mini to the curvaceous these suits look great on everyone!”
Alex explained of the line, “At Feline Swimwear, the cut and feel is what our clients love. It gives little butts a little something extra and big butts a beautiful shape.” For the girls that dare to bare, there is the Feline style bottoms, which have very minimal coverage. If that is not your style or you may need to do a few more lunges before you show off that much, there is the “Gringa”, which is moderate to full coverage.
“Each piece is sold separately and with over 20 different style tops: triangle, halter, bandeau, etc., and bottoms; hipster, string tie, side tie, etc. (low estimate) we are confident that you will be more than satisfied. “We never reorder or stock more then 7 suits of any particular style, print or color and receive new shipmenst every 4-6 weeks. We continually make a point to bring in key pieces that tie together suits that you may have purchased from last stock with new stock, as to always keep it fresh.” She explained.
Afraid you don’t know what style to choose to enhance your curves? Well Feline has covered that too. Stop in the (by appointment only) studio and let the experts help you find the suit that is perfect for you. “The creative, exclusive and sexy designs are made with only the highest quality lycra. Each piece is reinforced with double lining and choice lycra patterns which make these bathing suits not only sexy and distinctive but durable,” explained Alex. Prices range from $35 to $40 per piece — on the pricey side, but customizing a swimsuit to fit your body needs makes spending the extra cash worth it.
