How To Buy a Bikini….and Actually Be Happy Doing So

Swimsuit season is right around the corner. Anyone else dreading going to the store and trying on suit after suit to no avail? If you are like most women, you’ll end up leaving empty handed and feeling a little down.

Meet Kitty, the passion project of my good friend Cameron Armstrong. She is reinventing the way women feel about shopping for swimwear by creating a swimsuit that is customized to fit your body and style. We love brands that are fueled by empowering others, which is exactly why I am so proud of Cam and everything she is doing to empower women to support themselves, their bodies, and their friends.

She says, “A swimsuit is the least amount of clothing a woman wears in public. Shouldn’t this be the time when she feels her most confident, and shouldn’t she be wearing a piece of clothing that fits her body well?”


Sizing is the biggest issue we as women run into when buying a suit. You just never know what is going to fit. The size you wear changes brand to brand and style to style, leading to those awful dressing room experiences we have all had: nothing looks good and we don’t feel good.

Kitty is doing things differently. Their tops are based on your cup size. Their bottoms consider both your waist and inseam, which, by the way, no one else does…how crazy! Say bye-bye to saggy butt or bottoms digging in too tight.

Kitty offers a simplified, stress-free experience through an e-commerce only, customizable purchase platform: find the perfect style for your body type, select your size, then choose your print. Kitty bikinis are double lined for ultimate comfort. No see-through issues. No tags. No pads. No faulty clips or loose strings, but bra hook and eyes for maximum security and adjustable straps.

And, oh yeah, every style is reversible. Print on the outside, solid color on the inside. And the best part? All bikinis are $95! A steal compared to what I’ve paid for other name-brand suits whose quality and fit pale in comparison.

Forget the scary dressing room and give Kitty a try in the comfort of your own bedroom – the place where your most authentic confidence is found. I promise the suit will fit you like a glove and you’ll be dancing around your room when you see how great you look!

Kitty Season 1 launched on May 8th with three limited edition looks. Visit to get your suit and follow them on Instagram to help this awesome company get off the ground.

Go, Cam!
