BEACHCANDY SWIMWEAR: Our Story
How did we get here? Why are our swimsuits famous? Was our founder really only 20 years old when she trademarked the company over 10 years ago?
For some of you, you know our story, you’ve been with us from the beginning. You have shopped with us from the start with your measurements on file and just a phone call for with next order saying, “same perfect fit I just wear it so much I want it in another color!” We have loved hearing the success stories over the years. When women buy a BeachCandy they have a whole new experience with swimwear. We have dressed some of the most incredible women in the world! It all started with our founder & owner Brit B. and her devotion to women, her products, and the power of feeling pure confidence in a swimsuit.
Brit has been serious, to say the least, about FIT when it comes to swimwear since she pencilled her first pattern at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York City. She obsessed over the art of designing swimwear staying after hours with expert professors, sewing bikinis while it was snowing out her window, and taking the initiative to study Japanese beading techniques in Manhattan to learn the true art of intricacy with strength.
Brit found immediate success in allowing women to decide for themselves what made a swimsuit ‘sexy’ or ‘sophisticated’, and thus her lifelong mission was established. She trademarked the name BEACHCANDY in 2007 and set out to change the way women thought and felt about swimwear.
BeachCandy & Brit herself have been featured in hundreds of magazines, blogs, articles, and several National TV Shows. In 2012, BeachCandy was named ‘Editor’s Pick’ in Sports Illustrated and then featured on E! News reporting the season’s trends. While dressing several celebs we seem to be most well-known for our features on the Real Housewives of Orange County. To be fair, we do make extraordinary swimwear from fit to swarovski finish, why wouldn’t the RHOC or any woman want to shop with us.
Over a decade later, BeachCandy has transitioned from a chic beachfront boutique in Corona del Mar, to a two-story design loft in Costa Mesa, California where women from all over the world have in-person or fittings over Skype with Brit herself. At BeachCandy Swimwear, every dream swimsuit becomes a reality.
