MIGA Swimwear starts from Maria Luisa Mendiola's personal quest to find community. Every time she would go to the beach or the pool, she would get self-conscious and uncomfortable because of a disfigurement she has on her feet. Growing up in Costa Rica, she would cope with her difference by wearing bold and vibrant swimsuits that took attention away from her toes. At this point, she started to develop an obsession with swimwear; she made it her thing to scour the internet for innovative designs and top quality brands. While this helped, the feeling of isolation and being misunderstood remained. It wasn’t until she enrolled at Central Saint Martins UK, that she started to play with the idea of creating swimsuits that not only were eye-catching and beautiful, but that also encouraged the wearer to accept and love their body as is. By working directly with women and learning their unique body stories, she was able to create pieces that empowered them to embrace their differences, improving their body image. An unintended consequence, however, was the creation of a nurturing community of strong, resilient women. The type of community she had longed for all of her life... Since then she has worked with women of all body types to create swimsuits that make all women feel comfortable and confident. MIGA partners with ethical factories in the US, and uses eco-friendly materials, from sustainable fabrics made from up-cycled fish nets to recycled packaging. MIGA is known for their seamless fit, lux fabrics and high-grade quality, as well as for their vibrant colors and bold cutouts.
