For Women Who Inspire Us

Not many moons ago, in a land way out California west, something happened that would add to the world of performance swim style forever.

From the perch of a lifeguard stand, we saw competitive swim style floundering. Every suit out there whispered a lie about watersports being innately aggressive and unfun. The ladies in the water were cool —it was the suits that needed saving. So a group of us dove in and started having fun with swimwear.

We call this posse of aquatic outlaws JOLYN.

The beauty of being a small company is that we’re able to use the highest quality materials and construction—at an honest price. Heavy thread counts, fancy Italian fabric, and responsible production (made in America). So you get a suit that fits, stays put, and lasts.
