VOLT - The Most Comfy & Customizable Seamless Swimsuit Ever (Canceled)
Two versatile swimsuits, seamlessly made to be customized by you for any activity you endeavor.
If you combine a bikini obsession with a passion for surf and an eye for design, you get VOLT Surfwear. VOLT founder, Simone Zea from Venezuela initiated the company in 2004 with a vision to satisfy the needs of active women who surf. Upon her move to Mexico, she united her idea of the onepieces with Nadja Ibarra, a local from Puerto Escondido and together they decided to venture into a financial project with Kickstarter.
The money raised during this campaign will be used to cover the costs within the first six months of establishing Volt Surfwear as a Latin American company competing with well established brands in an international marketplace.
Our mission is to offer women incredible and unique designs; as well as supporting Latin athletes who dream of competing in aquatic events at an international level. Inspired by one of our earliest designs, the #PANTYTOP - a seamless piece which doubles as both bottoms and a top. These new designs have been created to work on every female, from 6 month old babies to mature women of 80 years of age. The new styles are called Voltage and V-land.
Both full pieces are extremely versatile. Voltage can be tied in many different ways by playing around with the straps and V-land already has a sultry and spectacular neckline, all you need to do is choose your favorite colors from the chart and create your own unique style.
There are a number of different options in which you are able to make your pledge. If you decide you would like a swimsuit, then our pledge amounts are based on size and style. All you have to do is look at our sizing chart to determine your size; then, decide on VOLTAGE or V-Land style, and make your pledge.
Once we have achieved our goal, you will be charged and we will send each of you a questionnaire in which you can choose the colors and/or prints you prefer. If you wish to receive more than one suit, you will be able to increase your pledge by adding the amount of the suits you are interested accordingly based on the appropriate size and style pledge amount. For example: VOLTAGE PRINTED FABRIC SIZE 3 "1.380 MX" + VOLTAGE SIZE 2 "750 MX” = donation of 2.130 MX to receive both bathing suits. In the questionnaire you'll defined the colors and prints or by private message.
We are sure that at the moment, in some places is winter time, and the last you are thinking about is in buying swimwear, but don't worry! if we reach our goal amount, you'll receive your swimsuits on April/May 2017. Just before Summer starts!.
You can tied them to your neck or put mini sleeves on by tying them to the back. You can make knots, cross it or even turn it into a strapless piece.
V-land bears its name from its deep neckline. This sultry style comes with two independent panels that can be switched and customized to create your own individual look. It will be available in size 3 and recommended for women with cup sizes from AA to a firm C.
VOLTAGE AND V-LAND are made for almost all ages and body types. Our fabrics are 4 way stretch with no stitching, so they can mold to your body. This allows women with different body types to use the same design. Try them out, you will be amazed!

Risks and challenges
Why Crowd Funding?
Volt Surfwear is a company that was born 12 years ago focusing on the needs of female surfers around the world. This campaign will provide the much needed capital to fund our production for the 2017 collection based on two new one-piece designs: VOLTAGE and V-LAND. We believe that these are two of our best designs in Volt’s trajectory because, for the first time, we are including sizes for babies from 6 months to 3 years and women from 50 to 80 years of age! This is the moment to share the power of Volt with everyone.
Risks and Challenges:
Because Voltage and V-Land are completely innovated styles of swimwear, our biggest potential challenge is not being there to demonstrate the different functions and benefits in tying your new suit. We want to ensure that you dare to stretch the straps of your suit to their full extent in order to make it hug your body in all the right places. With you in mind, we will always keep you updated with information and tutorial videos so that you can understand the basics of your suit.
Having produced surfwear for the past 12 years has made us confident in our ability to manage the logistical challenges of having our product ready on time. We already have our fabric provider and cutting company, and have made multiple prototypes which have been tested and proven to make you feel confident in the product you are receiving.
However, due to an increasing demand for Volt, we face a new challenge regarding possible third party logistics, in which case we will keep you informed and do our best to manage it as soon as possible.
