WHO ARE WE AND WHAT DO WE DO?

There is no better feeling than a warm summer day at the beach with the sun beaming down on you. But the beach is more than a place to layout, look pretty, and lounge around. Gidget Swimwear is made for those that have a love affair with water. We make suits for the active beach-goer who loves to jump, surf, snorkel, and go boating-to name a few. These activities become a little less enjoyable when you have a suit that refuses to cooperate. No one wants to be constantly tugging and pulling just to feel covered up (that should be the last thing to worry about). Of all the swimming suits on the market, there are very few that actually function and are comfortable in the water. Despite the fact that many one pieces barely cover your cheeks while laying on the beach, it is difficult to find a fashionable suit that can withstand the water activities you love!

OUR VISION

Gidget Swimwear was created for those searching for the perfect swimming suit. Our suits balance fashion, comfort, and style AND still keep you covered. Our goal is to create a suit in which you can feel confident, comfortable and beautiful. We don't want you to have to worry whether or not the suit will hold you in - we've got you covered!

THE COLLECTION

WHY IT MATTERS

As less coverage becomes the norm, Gidget helps provide a needed revival of timeless fashion, and traditional values. As swimming suits continue to use less and less material (thus objectifying women), we believe that real beauty is not defined merely by how much skin you show. This is why we are not afraid to stand up against the norm of less coverage and focus on radiating the simple goodness of life through fashionable swimming suits.

HOW IT FUNCTIONS

Many women’s swimming suits don’t fit well because they are made for only one body type, but in reality many of us don't fit that criteria. Our suits are designed for comfort and coverage for many body shapes and sizes. Our cross back style suits take the strain off your neck that halter suits typically give you, and help distribute the weight for the most comfort and function. By allowing our customers to tie their suits they can be worn as tightly or as loosely as desired. Our suits contain a lower shelf bra to fit women with chests of all sizes. Our suits are double lined and fit tight to the skin for full containment, and comfort, providing full chest and booty coverage. No tugging or pulling necessary.  

Our men's boardshorts are also made to function in the water. We use a 4-way stretch material to allow movement in the water. They tighten with a draw string that goes all the way around the waistband, and we created a velcro free fly to avoid irritation. 

We want both men and women to feel comfortable in the water, and with these functional elements you can get the most enjoyment out of your swim.

Risks and challenges

We are currently working with our manufacturer in Bali, Indonesia. We are on track to have the suits ready to deliver by Early June, but as it is with all projects, it is possible it could be later. Our goal of $7,650 will help us reach the minimum order requirements. By only meeting the minimum amount, our inventory could be limited in sizes and prints. The more funds we have, the more we can customize the patterns, to have more options for our customers.
