After moving from New York City to sunny Siesta Key, BLEND BIKINIS Co-founder Angela Kim was searching for a bikini she could wear to the beach. She was disappointed when the bikinis she found were all sold as sets, none of the tops and bottoms were sold separately. Then the founders, Angela and Robert Kim learned of stories of children drowning in Florida and that Florida has the highest number of child drownings in the nation and that drownings are the 2nd leading cause of deaths in children. Determined to help reduce this statistic the Kims combined their fashion experience, their love of swimming, and their desire to help children learn to swim to create BLEND BIKINIS.
BLEND BIKINIS creates Bikinis that can be bought separately in different sizes and colors for under $100, and donates a portion of its proceeds to create free swim lessons for children. At age 9, Angela learned to swim through a free swim lesson program, and she went on to swim competitively in high school. Knowing how essential it is for children to learn to swim, she took her son, Hugo, for his first swim lesson at 6 months old and he now swims competitively in Sarasota.
With every purchase, you receive a bikini you can customize for yourself and you will help to impact a child's life forever. BLEND BIKINIS goal is to help 1 million+ children learn to swim.
