Mi Ola. Making life at the beach better for every woman.

7 years ago, I learned to surf and it changed my life.   I was living in NYC, working in high fashion, and became completely obsessed with surfing.    I was walking the city streets,  dreaming of having the sand under my feet! After a couple years of this, I traded in my high heels for flip flops and moved to Costa Rica to surf.

Once I was in the water every day, I needed well-made, chic, sexy surf bikinis that stayed on and I couldn’t find any. So I created Mi Ola. Sexy Bikinis that Stay On. Every suit has been designed to look great and provide active women with a functional, premium, sexy suit that stays put. Each style has also been wave tested and approved by real surfers.

What you’ll find with Mi Ola is every seam, stitch, elastic and fabric has been tried, tested and approved. We want to make the best bikinis out there, and make you look really good.

Mi Ola’s motto, “Be comfortable in your own skin. Be secure in your bikini.”

The Mi Ola Difference

When you try on any Mi Ola style, you’ll immediately notice the difference. The fit is impeccable and the suit grips your curves. Every style has slight modifications from a “normal” bikini, which will keep it on your body, and make you look smoking hot. Every component has been engineered to enhance, last and keep you covered.

Our fabric is UPF 50+ to protect you from the sun. And it doesn’t fade or stretch out after hard use.

Our metal rings are molded out of brass. They have no coating or paint that might chip off after you’ve worn it a few times. If anything, they get even better looking with time. We only use hardware and embellishment in ways that it won’t hurt you or get in your way. When we put rings on some bottoms, we place it on the side, so you won’t bruise your hip bones while you’re surfing. The rings are molded to fit your curves, which is more comfy and looks better.

Every seam has been constructed to prevent chafing or discomfort.

We want you to remove our labels. Labels can irritate sensitive skin, so you can easily remove our labels without damaging your suit.

Lastly, every suit is fully lined, to make sure you’re really covered (even when you think you are!)

We hope you will be thrilled with your Mi Ola suit. Regardless, we want to hear your feedback and how we can improve, so let us know!
