For me, Autumn is mostly a period of denial that summer is over! In between when summer ends and the holidays begin, I kind of still pretend that going to the beach in the middle of the work week is acceptable. And when I decide to slack off by the sea shore, I almost always throw on a swimsuit by L*Space Swim!
L*Space is one of my all time favorite swim brands, because the fit + quality of their pieces has stayed the same for years. Let’s be real, swimsuits are expensive! And it’s tough to spend your money on something that covers so little of your body. But I’ve found that L*Space holds up despite multiple wears in salt water, chlorine and whatever else you’re swimmin’ in!
Swimsuit designer Monica Wise started moved from NYC to sunny Orange County, California to be in the heart of the surf + swim scene, and L*Space was born. She chose to design and produce her suits locally, instead of outsourcing to Mexico like most of her competitors. While this route was no doubt more costly for Monica, she wanted to be close to the production process, involved in every aspect of designing, sewing and fitting to ensure the best quality for her swimsuits. How cool is that?!
