Hello there! I am Carys and I am here to invite you on this journey to a create swimwear brand dedicated to making you feel happy and strong

New stretch target

With the extra funding I will be able to increase the number of styles on the website by buying more stock I will be able to showcase more designs.

I want to be able to use a software that can enable me to manage the stock correctly vs monitoring the sales. This will also mean I will need to invest in IT equipment.

I will also be able to invest more in marketing, the website and more market research. 

The stretch target will enable me to keep the brand alive and be able to design customized swimwear just for you!

For anyone that does not know me at all, I am Carys and I am from Wales but have been away from home galivanting around Bristol, London and Cambridge for the past 11 years. And now I am back babey!!

During this splendid time away, I have been working in the fashion retail industry and for any of you reading this that have worked with me will know the product side of the job role has always been my passion and well, what I am the best at (not to blow my own trumpet). The reason why I am so passionate is because I live, eat, sleep, repeat fashion- it really is all I think about.

 Although, during lockdown I have been mainly thinking... I really should do some exercise! ...Anyone else? 

Also, during lockdown it has given me the opportunity to think about what is my next career move. I have always wanted my own swimwear brand and I feel like now is the perfect opportunity. 

I want to use all the retail experience I have, in particular dealing with customers and understanding their needs. This is what will make Swim with... successful. It is so important to listen to the customer to acknowledge what they really want.  

My vision is to create a swimwear brand that will make you feel confident, brave and eliminate those negative feelings towards how you look to others whilst wearing swimwear.

My designs are inspired by real women in my life, their input into the colours, fabric, style and patterns will be what I base my brand around. Each style will even be named after each fabulous lady. We all have different tastes and fashion sense and that's what will make this unique. I want to bring my imagination and creativeness together with what women really want in swimwear to build a brand for you. 

The money raised will go towards: 

  • Purchasing stock 
  • Website development
  • Marketing including a videographer
  •  Packaging
  • Market research
  • IT equipment

I pledge that all products made will be environmentally friendly. One fabric supplier that I am looking at can make my swimwear using 100% recycled fabrics plus if this fabric ends up at landfill it can biodegrade within 5 years unlike usual fabrics that are on the market these days.

Words that are like swearing at Swim with... 

"Summer body ready"

Forget it... YOU ARE READY and you will be definitely ready to hit that beach wearing my swimwear.
