One of the hardest things to go shopping for outside of jeans has got to be swimwear! I don't know about you ladies but swimwear used to be so easy, but since my body has grown into the womanly shape now, not so much. I've always had the issue of having bikinis with the cutest and perfectly fit top and the bottom that makes me look like the michelin man. And what girl do you know looks cute in tire rolls? If you follow my instagram page, fabiolamichele, you would have seen my recent post of my now two favorite bathing suits from IMH Swim. I totally want to be that annoying person who floods your timeline of pictures in these two bathing suits, but I love and respect my followers too much.
When I first stumbled across the brand, it was a friend of a friend who was rocking the electric blue one piece bathing suit with mesh side panels and front zip. I practically drooled over the color and fit of the bathing suit. It was perfect timing as I was leaving for my trip to Hawaii in a month and I was stressing over the fact that I had no new bathing suits that compliments my new workout body [ a girl is trying to be a MILF in life minus this kids]. I was skeptical of what to expect when reaching out to Iris, the owner and designer of IMH Swim. I told her about the styles I was interested and she then gave me a rundown of her prices and what I would then need to do once I knew what I wanted. I did not realize all of her bathing suits were custom made and set to fit your body...WIN! She asks that you get your measurements as to have the bathing suit fit like a glove, talk about details. I placed my order and less than 3 weeks I had my bathing suit in hand, and man oh man was I happy! I sent pictures of the bathing suit to my girlfriends and they were floored as well at how perfect everything fit and felt.
Of course I had to reach out to her shortly after my trip and tell her that her bathing suits are like god's seconds skin made for women. And naturally I had to share with you guys the miracle that is IMH Swim. I had to find out how IMH Swim even came to be.
IMH SWIM came into existence in 2009 unintentionally. At the time Iris was headed on a girls trip to Miami and couldn't find anything that suited her without looking extremely young. At that time swimsuits looked nothing like her collection. So she took it upon herself to not only make swimsuits but everything in her suitcase. From that trip on, the rest was history. She started out very slow with absolutely no intention to sell anything, and there suddenly became a demand. And the suits she had made were too cute not to.
Since then IMH SWIM has literally traveled the world! She works during the day and by night its all about IMH SWIM. She makes custom suits for the Passport stamper, Travelnoire Elite and jet setters. Everything Iris makes is something that she too would wear. It's pretty much her ideal suitcase packed for vacation every time she looks at her pieces.
IMH Swim is all about colors and a good cut that hits all the right places. Iris prefers not to use prints, just solids, her idea of a good suit "-is that one that you rock poolside at a Le Bain pool party in Manhattan or on a vacation resort in Cancun. You should be able to go for drinks on Ocean Drive and then grab your cover up to handle business in the lobby of the Fountainbleau. There's no pressure with IMH SWIM, it just is. Fun, lots of sexy, vibrant, and unique."
