2016 Miami Swim Show featured on Lingerie Briefs

I was 26 years old when I began working in the swimwear industry. Back then the largest size in a bikini was an XL, mix and match separates were unheard of, tankinis didn’t exist and one piece suits only came two flavors: old lady florals with full coverage or a no support tank style, usually in a color block.

Cocktails on the beach on Lingerie Briefs

This week we are voyaging on the Eastern Cape to do some exploring. Our destination: Cabo Pulmo National Park. It’s a different type of beach experience and I hope to report back about what is reputed to be some of the world’s best snorkeling. This will be a different experience than my usual seaside sojourns at the local Medano Beach. There you can find us on our chairs near Tabasco’s … Read More

His radical splatter paintings forever changed the way contemporary art is perceived. In many ways, the Antigel Swimwear collection is emulating his message in the bathing suit category.
