Meet the Designers: Minnow Bathers

Toronto-based Minnow Bathers makes swimsuits for real women without sacrificing a bit of edge.

Swimsuit season should be all about fun in the sun and summer vacation, but so many of us go into panic mode because the idea of being in a bikini feels like apocalypse now. Karen Donaldson and Vanessa Warrack and their awesome Toronto-based swimsuit line, Minnow Bathers, are here to change that with designs that have real women and functionality in mind. The creative duo said forget about the string bikini and created cool and comfortable pieces that involve ’70s silhouettes, cutouts, bandeaus, suspender straps, high waisted bottoms, and grungy vintage prints. Minnow Bathers is dedicated to making a summer uniform that girls can hike, camp, lounge, beach and feel confident in. We had the opportunity to speak to the dream team who are all about making women of all shapes feel good half-naked.
