I started MB swim recently the summer of 2016 when I was just 15 years old. It all started while I was getting brand ambassador offers from swimwear companies during my sophomore year of High School. To get the position all I had to do was purchase a bikini from that brand, Id look at their site and be amazed by the bountiful designs and styles they had, they were all very beautiful but not exactly my style nor my price range. Therefore, I turned down the offers. When I would find ambassador opportunities they would reject me because of my low follower count (700 on ig). Being so young and insecure, I felt terrible that a number had defined me as a person. Then I thought, "there must be hundreds or thousands of girls going through the same thing". With the factors of style,pricing, and follower count for swimwear I thought that it would be great to have a swimwear line where you can pick and choose your style at a reasonable price and you can become an ambassador not based on a number but your style and personality. I didn't have a job, it was summertime with nothing to do, so I started MB swim with support from friends and family. I started selling my handmade bikinis via instagram, 6 weeks later, I started my website, then by November we were able to reach 15.4k followers on ig and we roughly double the number of sales monthly! The rest is known and now Im so happy to be where I am with the help and support from friends and family as well as my lovely ambassadors.
