EXCLUSIVE! Lagoa Swimwear’s Creator Shares Inspo Behind “PocketKini”

Lauren Carkhuff realized she wanted a swimsuit with pockets when her things got stolen at a beach in Brazil.

Lauren Elizabeth realized she wanted a swimsuit with pockets when her things got stolen at a beach in Brazil. She looked all over for a bikini with pockets, but it was all but impossible to find. Thus, she created her own solution by designing a line of swimsuits that are stylish, functional and sporty.

Lagoa Swimwear is all about feeling fun and carefree on the beach, at the pool and everywhere else in the sun. With a principal focus on function rather than looks, Lagoa Swimwear is made for chicks looking to be more active and sporty on the beach. Think more beach volleyball than lounging at pool parties.

Every piece, top and bottom, in Lagoa’s collection is reversible with cute prints and bright jewel tones. The cuts and designs are simple with adequate elastic and coverage, made to prevent any riding up or discomfort that’s typical of flimsier bikinis. Although they were made with comfort in mind, the designs are still cute and flirty, with multiple options for ample to moderate coverage.

Check out the video for Lauren’s full story and an exclusive look at her new Fall 2017 collection!
