Taking the Plunge with Mi Ola

By: Ginger Harris


Surfing, paddle boarding, swimming, diving, playing volleyball—there are a million Florida activities that require swimwear as the dress code.

But preventing wardrobe malfunctions in a strapless bikini while tubing down open waters, well, that’s a feat few can pull off.

If you like to be sporty under the sun, then let me introduce you to Mi Ola. The swimwear line was created by a surfer who desired a suit that was sexy but stayed put. Creator Helena Fogarty’s motto, “Be comfortable in your own skin. Be secure in your bikini,” became the mantra for her brand.

The line features vibrant colors and nature-inspired prints, such as tropical flowers, macaws, snakes, the ocean and palm trees. But it’s the cut that keeps things in place. Think swimwear that fits like workout gear. (No tugging, riding up, yanking, pulling.) And yet the look is sheer femininity.

St. Pete professional Stand Up Paddle Boarder Bailey Rosen was recently named the first ambassador for the line. The teen can attest to the brand’s style and stay-ability.

As can you, once you give it a go off the high-dive. Go ahead, take the plunge.

Consider yourself the sporty type? Mi Ola is currently searching for brand ambassadors. If you're an outdoorsy girl who enjoys your outdoor activities in a bathing suit (because you surf, play volleyball, do yoga, swim, paddleboard, etc...) reach out to the brand on its Facebook page and let them know. You could win a free suit to show off how you get active. 

And be sure to follow the brand on Instagram at
instagram.com/miolasurf for even more giveaways and opportunities.

Keep in the loop with the hashtags #getoutthere and #miola.
