This is too exciting! My swimwear line being funded on kickstarter right now was featured on ABCNEWS because they said it is a very personal story that needed to be shared!!!
As a teenager, I struggled with bacne (back acne) for many years, and I still remember how much it affected my self esteem. I couldn't wear any of the cute tank tops and summer dresses my friends were wearing, and it didn't help that most of my closest friends had beautiful skin and just wouldn't understand what I was going through. The worst was when I had to be in a swimsuit. I remember how much I dreaded going anywhere near the water where I would have to be in a swimwear. I had to wear a t-shirt over my bikini top or a rash guard, and I just didn't feel comfortable there. Years later, I am still dealing with the scarring left behind.
After years of frustration of not being able to find a decent looking swimsuit that covered my back, I finally decided to have a custom made swimsuit that is cute, stylish and still covered my back. I stayed late at work and sketched a few swimwear styles using my civil engineering software I use for work and took it to a local seamstress to make them. Boy oh boy, I loved how it turned out and thats when I thought that there must be women like me, who want coverage with out sacrifing style and elegance. That is when I started my kickstarter project http://kck.st/1iKjuOX to help fund my launch!!
The ABCNEWS coverage validated my idea that this is something that resonates with many women who not only want to coverup scars but also want the covearge for modesty as well. I am a believer in going after your dreams and if you give it your best, anything is possible!
Wish me luck! and please help me share my story by liking and sharing the abcnews story!
