Beauty.Body.Bathing Suit.

By Lisa M. Collins

Vogue Magazine has credited Malia Mills swimwear line with a “body image revolution,” for creating stylish suits that acknowledge and accentuate a woman’s curves and shape. The good news is—the retailer, with three shops in Manhattan–has just opened on Atlantic Avenue in Boerum Hill.

I’m ready for a South Brooklyn Post field trip to Malia Mills, but I do hate trying on suits. This is what Elle Magazine has to say on the matter:

“Edgy swimwear designer Malia Mills is the first designer in the history of the world to acknowledge that most women hate trying on swimsuits and aren’t all five-foot-ten and 120 pounds.”

So, maybe they’ve got our number. I’m going to check it out. I’ll tweet on it. Do you follow South Brooklyn Post on twitter? You should.

According to the company website, Malia Mills launched in 1992 “with the goal of making swimwear with superior fit and fashion to inspire women to feel fabulous about their individual beauty.”

Says Vogue: “To thousands of women across the country, Malia Mills is nothing short of a modern-day savior. When she began her swimwear company nine years ago, she started a veritable body image revolution.”

Pool season, here we come.
