Its that easy!  We are here to help you bring out your talent  and start your own SWIMWEAR BRAND!


It's a perfect add on for Stores looking to offer exclusive one of a kind designs to their customers. Or for those looking to start a new business venture.  We have also provided this service to many Hotels and Casinos who want to outfit their "team" in custom uniforms.  We call it "CUSTOM BRANDING" and you simply become the designer behind your own collection. This is your chance to use your creativity, business sense and talent. We help make it easy for you to start your own Collection without huge upfront costs or design experience.

Established in 1995 we are one of the only swimwear apparel manufacturers in the USA that can help you with pattern making, developing, grading, marking, sample and production.  We help make it affordable for  you to start your business or to help with existing ones.  WE always use only the highest quality swimwear fabrics available in the industry.

TO GET STARTED:

1.  Send us pictures or sketches of the swimsuit tops and bottoms you want to make. Or choose from any styles on our website. If you have a sample of what you want made, that is the preferred way.  And if would like to make any changes then mail us the sample and explain how you would like it changed.  We will then send you a quote.
2.   After deciding on the styles you want in your new Collection, you can then choose fabric patterns, colors, hardware, if any and trims. We can create as many patterns as you like but keep in mind, fees range from $300.00 to $425.00 for each sample prototype.  This is a one time fee  and can vary depending on the detail involved.  After your first sample is made and approved we can then do a time and stitch count and  give you a per piece price to cut and sew each item in your collection. And give you prices for fabric. Prices vary depending on the materials and accessories used.
3.  During this stage we can meet in person, email  back and forth and/or facetime to discuss your ideas and keep you up to date on our process.  You can choose from the many fabrics on our website to use in your collection or any solid color at all. (whether we show it or not, we can get it) We will provide sample color swatches for you to approve prior to production. If you want a specific print we can source that for you also.
4. Decide on what sizes you want to offer. There is a 30.00 fee to grade each size and produce each size pattern.
    Before production starts all samples will be approved.
5.  The minimum quantity is 6 styles. 12 bikinis per style in whatever size breakdown you want. We can grade sizes XS thru 2X. Our most common breakdown is  2-S, 4-M, 4-L, 2-XL..But if you have larger women you may want 4-L,4-XL and 4-2X.  We want you to succeed and this is where we differ tremendously from any other manufacturer.  After choosing your size breakdown your new Collection will total 72 swimsuits.
7.   Depending on the complexity of your collection, time of year and many other factors delivery can vary.
8. If you are interested in designing you own prints, we work with talented sublimation companies , there are additional fees required. Also note we are not responsible for delays or errors out of our control when working with 3rd parties.


COMMON QUESTIONS
HOW MANY STYLES SHOULD I LAUNCH AS PART OF MY COLLECTION?
Customers who want to launch their own Collection tend to start off with about 6 to 10 different swimsuit styles. We suggest no less than 6 and not more than 10 designs but the final quantity will depend on your budget and business plan.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO MAKE A SAMPLE?
The costs can range from $300 to $450 depending on the details and construction of the style. This can be a monokini, one piece or two piece design . You will receive 1 sample  prototype including 1 revision to the pattern. This  sample suit is usually a size medium.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
If we are making the pattern, sample suits usually take anywhere between 4-6 weeks, this can change depending on the time of year and complexity. Once you approve the prototype, we have to make sure all supplies are in house before production can begin.  The swimwear is shipped from our Florida location.

  WHAT IS THE TOTAL COST?
The final costs of your collection depends on a number of factors.  Are we just cutting and sewing? Are we providing all fabrics and trims? The  cut and sew price point for a simple design is approximately $38.00 while the more complex styles can cost up to $75.00.  Once we have determined the styles and quantities you want to move forward with, we can then give you a better idea of total price.
Sourcing, development and/or consulting requires an upfront non refundable payment.  This includes time spent setting up your account in our facility, training our sewers on your specific styles, continual correspondence and sourcing products exclusively for your collection.  
WHAT KIND OF FABRICS AND STYLES CAN I USE?
You can choose any of the designs on our website. we can also print any over all design for you, but that entails an extra fee and may require more time.   As for Solid colors, we can get almost any solid color you can think of.  Extra fees apply. We also have access to trim and hardware suppliers, so if you have something special in mind that you want to add we can help you find it.  We use standard size tags for the inside of the suits, but if you want customized labels with your name those will have to be provided. Or we can source for you.
