Instead of checking out your usual hot spots (virtual or not) for your next beach outfit, head to your getaway with a Malaysian-branded swimsuit packed in your suitcase!
If you didn’t already know, there is going to be a longgg weekend ahead of us, thanks to Malaysia Day (but let’s be honest, we Malaysians have got our mandatory off-days down pat). So, it’s the perfect time to dip your toes in the sand and get that summer tan! Before you escape to the beach and leave your troubles behind, don’t forget to pack that cute little swimsuit you have….yet to buy. No worries, we’ve got your back girl. Before you browse through your go-to brands though, why not check out some homegrown ones to show a lil’ local love?
That’s right, we have some swimmie labels right in our own backyard! Isn’t it strange that as residents of a tropical climate region, we are not quite familiar with or actively searching for our own swimwear brands? Odds are because there aren’t many available or marketed wide enough for all to see (the chicken or the egg theory could be played around here). Either way, we have scoured the net to unearth some hidden gems that you should feast your peepers on and more importantly-splurge on!
Fashion shall not be sacrificed in the name of patriotism, so read on to achieve that double combo:
Splendid swimmies for less than RM100??! Sign us up, s’il vous plaît! If your goal is to look hella cute without breaking the bank, look no further than La Bumba. Get your ooh-la-la on by the pool with some stunning prints, youthful cuts and psychedelic colours from this Insta shop.
Our personal fav is the reversible bikini which serves you dual prints for the price of one. Honey, that’s a steal that gives you double the *fire emoji* so what are you waiting for? Head on over to their site to fill up your cart with these eye-catching beauties!
