Betsy Campos, Founder of Unika Swim

“I was born in Canada but of Brazilian heritage. Growing up, I spent my summers in Brazil - where beachwear is engrained into our culture. What I found the most inspiring about Brazil was how people wore their swimwear. From the diverse cultural backgrounds that make up the population, to the variety of body types and ages of the women gracing their beaches - all of them wore their pieces confidently. Every women's body shape is different and unique, and so are their life experiences, personalities and tastes. I wanted women to be able to reflect their uniqueness and be confident in their choices, especially when they are the most exposed. I traveled endlessly to find unique and quality stretch fabrics from all around the world to give you the selection and quality you want. These suits were made with love, I hope you enjoy wearing them as much as I did designing them.”
