Cabo Swimwear Via Medano Beach

June 16, 2017

If you are reading this today, I have landed at JFK, motored back to my Connecticut home base and begun the transition back into my New York lifestyle. But today, my last in Mexico, I am, as promised earlier this week, at the beach. In Cabo the beach is a true generational melting pot. If one is aware of the swimsuit trends, which I instinctively am, Medano Beach is the perfect observatory.  Beach fashion  runs the gamut from “Who Cares” to “Look at Me”. Generally, I prefer the end of the stretch that is anchored by the well-known Tabasco’s beach bar , Cascadas, a very low key time-share, and a parking lot that is totally accessible.  It’s more of a family scene; lots of Mexicans spend their week-ends in large groups picnicing under umbrellas, their kids in the surf. The attire here tends to lean towards the practical. Beachwear is an assortment of shorts, t-shirts and bathing suits that do their job without a lot of noise. But, if you take a walk down the shoreline towards the famed Mango Deck, space becomes more precious, the music booms louder and everyone in sight seems to be under 30. The beachwear is in another zone and nothing about the atmosphere is serene. On Sunday, after breakfast at Sur Beach House, a stone’s throw from Mango Deck, we decided to stay put for the afternoon. Squeezed between a bevy of tourists, we staked out lounge chairs and an umbrella and ordered margaritas.  The space was tight, the music boomed, conversation and drinks flowed. It definitely was a party; but tomorrow, for my last hurrah, I am going back to Tabascos. And I am bringing my book along with old lady noodle float. Despite my kids teasing, I do not care. I have tasted youth. I intend to relax instead.

Ellen Lewis, Publisher of Lingerie Briefs: My merchant’s curiosity has taken me on a swimwear journey from the Miami Swim show to many shops whose robust businesses claim between 10 – 20% generated from swimwear. We began this swim column in order to highlight this potential. My research has led me to a very interesting conclusion: Swimwear is a fit business parallel to Intimates, but Swim stores and Bra Fitting stores approach the process in very different ways. Fit is priority, absolutely, in both venues, but the similarity really stops there.
 
 
Kimberly Berger is the founder/owner of Lion’s Lair Boutique Located in Islamorada in the Florida Keys. Established in 1996, Lion’s Lair Boutique has become paradise for the well-endowed and hard to fit woman. Specializing in larger cup sizes and plus sizes, Lion’s Lair offers the largest selection of cup sized swimwear, lingerie and clothing in the United States, quite possibly the world. Kimberly and her staff were the first to introduce the ‘swim bra’, an underwire garment that is designed to be worn under a tankini shell. The ‘swim bra’ offers the larger cup customer the same support as a bra but is made out of fabrics designed to get wet. Kimberly shared the concept with the designers at Eveden and shortly thereafter Elomi Swimwear was born. Designers from all over the world come to visit and consult with Kimberly and her staff who have truly become the voice of the consumer. It has become a destination store to woman seeking hard to find sizes, and an exceptional shopping experience.
