Supporting One Another

A bikini should be yours to choose, forget antiquated sizing and outdated beauty standards. Our community is all about being our authentic, unedited selves and empowering the people in our lives to do the same. There’s nothing more amazing than a woman ignoring the chatter of unattainable expectations and loving themselves! In a world that’s busy telling us how to look and who to be, this is our space to reconcile our vulnerabilities with one another and to grow into radical self acceptance in our bodies and hearts.

Uniquely Yours

Categorizing people into a limited size range is unfair to the diversity and beauty of humanity. No body is the same and the creators behind KaiKini know that when it comes to finding the perfect suit the struggle is real. Our dedication to custom swim is our solution to this problem!

Our team is made up of Kauai-based seamstresses who have years of experience in custom handmade bikinis, helping thousands of women around the world to find the suit that hugs and gives in all of the right places. From adjusting waistband size to changing the length of a shoulder strap and so much more, almost 100% of KaiKini bikinis are fully customizable to fit individual needs as well as tastes! And who doesn't love the idea of being the only person in the world that'll be rocking that swimsuit?!

Our Journey

Our Journey

We wouldn't be here without you!

Your Support

Your support is what keeps us going. KaiKini was born from a sense that the bikini world was missing a certain factor of integrity, sustainability, and quality. Did you know that KaiKini is the largest manufacturer of Hawaiian-made swimwear and we sell bikinis all over the world?! Over the years we have watched as our community grew with us. Seeing happy customers out there in the world rocking their KaiKini bikinis and shining with confidence is the true indicator of success for us. From humble beginnings to where we are now, there is absolutely no way that KaiKini could’ve grown into the company that it is today without those who have stuck with us along the way. We’re so excited to see where the rest of the journey takes us!

Thank you Message From The Owner

When I taught myself how to sew bikinis in my spare bedroom 11 years ago, I never dreamed KaiKini would be what it is today…and I only have YOU to thank. I know some of you have been with us from the beginning and others have just discovered us. Either way, we are excited that you’re here and happy that you have joined us on the journey to make suits that not only fit wonderfully, but make you FEEL good when you have them on. I believe the two go hand in hand. It doesn’t matter how beautiful the suit is, if it doesn’t make you feel good, it’s not the one for you. And vise versa, you’re not going to feel good in a Kini that is ill-fitting and uncomfortable. Here’s the secret to the “Perfect Bikini”: It’s the combination of a suit that’s tailor  made for your body and the good feeling it gives you that makes it perfect. 

With our new community based website, you’ll see each others creations displayed in such a way that you'll be able to search for inspiration based on things such as body type, skin tone, and height so you can see what has worked for other women with similar features. We’ve had the opportunity to connect with so many more of you on an individual basis since going custom, and with this new platform, you’ll be able to share with each other! You’ll be learning form each other, and I from you…the more I see, the better my designs will be and the better we, as a team get at producing your suits.

Thank you, all of you, for giving us the opportunity to make something so special for you…for your continued support and loyalty, and for keeping my dream of making the “perfect bikini” alive.
