I had a clear mission when I launched Miss Mandalay swimwear – to design a bikini in D-GG cup sizes that didn’t look like a bra. Back in 2005 buying a bikini as a busty 30FF girl wasn’t easy. Yes, there were options – some fit, most didn’t - but none of them had the “look”. I wanted to wear a bikini that made me feel amazing, supported and was stylish, just like the swimwear my smaller busted friends were wearing. So, the challenge began – could I create a beautiful yet supportive triangle bikini that would fit girls with a fuller bust like me?
Whilst working my ‘day job’ in TV production, nights were spent designing and developing the first Miss Mandalay triangle bikini; a brand new shape/design for the fuller bust swimwear market. Roll on 18 months to the summer of 2007 and the first Miss Mandalay bikini was born. Our new triangle bikini shape became an instant best seller. It sold out everywhere within 5 weeks and was a grateful payoff to retailers like Bravissimo and ASOS who had been brave enough to invest in our first collections.
Over 10 years on we continue to innovate, develop and design stylish swimwear for busty women. It means everything when we receive your comments and hear how confident & supported you feel in your Miss Mandalay bikini; it’s the very thing that keeps us designing.
