IndieSWIM is a cool, up and coming swimwear company, founded by Zoe Gregalot, a Trinidad and Tobago native, and Rosanna Bermudez, a Floridian of Dominican ancestry. No longer content with cutting up purchased swimsuits to customize their look, the beachwear babes decided to give it a go on their own, thus, IndieSWIM was born.
Established in 2012, the company has several collections under their belt, but people really started to take notice when one of their bikinis was included in the February 2016 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition, photographed gracing the flawless body of another Caribbean beauty, model Hannah Davis of the US Virgin Islands.
Through the fun, brightly-colored, tropical-inspired prints, the occasional cowrie shell embellishment, and names that pay homage to their regional homeland such as “Rincon,” “Tortola,” and “Martinique,” Gregalot and Bermudez demonstrate the brand’s island influences, although they are based in Florida. Their mix and match line of separates (some of which are reversible), cut from fine Italian lycra, insures a multitude of style possibilities in shapes and cuts that compliment a variety of figures. We love their high-waisted styles, which offer a chic alternative to those looking to minimize their midsections, or simply as a high fashion pool or beachside look, but they have a full range of designs with varying levels of coverage.
