Michael Plishka's insight:

 Finally, a swimsuit with zipper pockets to keep your valuables safe! Swimwear designer launches a line of stylish and functional swimsuits with invisible zipper pockets on Kickstarter.


Lagoa swimwear is a women’s swimwear brand that offers invisible zipper pockets to keep your valuables safe at the beach, pool party, or just out and about! The patent pending pocket swimsuits are designed by seasoned fashion wholesale rep, Lauren Carkhuff. The inspiration for the swimwear line began in 2012 while she was living in Brazil. “I found myself wanting to go in the ocean with all of my friends, but nervous to leave my keys, money, and credit card unattended on the beach. I searched everywhere and could not find a swimsuit that allowed me to carry my valuables with me while in the water,” says Carkhuff.


She decided that there had to be a better solution for keeping her valuables safe. This led to the creation of Lagoa Swimwear. After a year of refining the patterns and perfecting the fit, she has created her first collection offering two reversible bikini tops and bottoms that you can mix and match and a one piece. The designs are made with high quality four way stretch nylon-spandex and available in sizes XS - L. “It is a must have for every girl’s swimsuit drawer,” says Carkhuff.


The suits are made with high quality four way stretch nylon-spandex. Made in Los Angeles - Locally sourced labor “Our patent pending zip pocket design is strategically placed for ease of use and is large enough to hold a credit card,” says Carkhuff. 


The zipper is sewn between the two layers of fabric which make it invisible to the naked eye. It’s a project that she can’t wait to begin producing. “Producing the collection requires large minimums from our manufacturer,” says Carkhuff. Therefore, Lauren has decided to launch the first collection on Kickstarter.com in an attempt to raise $5,000 for the first production run.


Kickstarter campaigns operate under an “all-or-nothing” funding model, so if Lagoa Swimwear doesn’t reach it’s goal, the project will not be completed. Consider donating as little as $10 to help the project come to life.


Check out the Kickstarter Project here. If you decide to donate more, you will be among the first get a suit and keep your valuables with you at the beach or pool. 


If you’d like more information about Lagoa Swimwear, or if you would like to chat with Lauren please email info@lagoaswimwear.com or send her a tweet @lagoaswimwear.
