"Alpine Butterfly Swim was created to inspire women to wear that sexy swimsuit and love yourself while doing it. In 2015, after realizing that finding swimsuits (that were also flattering!) for my plus size niece was nearly impossible, I was inspired to create a brand that didn’t forgot about all of the women who are above a size 8. Alpine Butterfly Swim officially launched August 2017."
