Swimsuit season is quickly approaching, and the hunt for the perfect body-flattering suit is on. Karen Donaldson and Vanessa Warrack are the minds behind Minnow Bathers, a Toronto-based swimwear line that combines “bold prints and striking silhouettes.”
The Minnow Bathers 2011 collection is reminiscent of what makes up the teenage years: “rebellion, summer fun, first beers, first tokes, and first kisses.” The brand is known for its retro-inspired cuts, and this year’s collection is no exception. My favourite is the zebra-inspired, high-waisted bottoms paired with a bandeau top. This is a flattering style that is sure to complement all body types.
All of the swimsuits in the Minnow Bathers line are handcrafted by the girls themselves, who put a bit of love into each piece.
