What is your name? Can you tell us about your company?
My name is Candice Galek, I started out with Bikini Luxe as just an idea to do something that I am passionate about, that being womens fashion and especially bikinis, Growing up in sunny Florida it does not take much of an excuse to have a wardrobe full of them. The company has been wildly successful in a very short time, we receive around 10,000 visitors a day currently and the visitor count is increasing daily as spring and summer stats to near.

Bikinis and high heels? Welcome to Miami! This is a place where you dress up to go grocery shopping and I can’t lie I absolutely love it. I am ultra passionate about womens fashion and being able to do so on a daily basis is simply divine.
Do you create all of the pieces on your website yoursel8. What are some projects you are working on now?
The majority of our products are Miami based designers, only recently have we expanded to include some designers from California, Italy, Colombia and Brazil. These are really the hot spots for Bikinis, most likely due to the weather. When you can wear bikinis all year round it is amazing, I could not imagine myself living somewhere that this was not possible! We have also picked up some activewear lines but most likely we will not be adding our own activewear line until the fall as things are just too busy!
