Rachel Pally has taken her flattering and forgiving jersey dresses to impressive heights—from Oprah's favorite things to a plus-sized collection for Nordstrom. Now the LA designer has delved into swimwear, which complements her contemporary collection. The designer told California Apparel News: “It turns out women were wearing my dresses over their bathing suits to the pool and beach. So I figured I may as well make what they’re wearing under my dresses!”
The line launched earlier this year, featuring six bikini tops and bottoms and two maillot suits: "String bikinis, high-waist briefs and hipsters pair with bandeau tops, triangle tops and pinup-inspired bikini tops...striped and solid separates in punchy brights allow for a playful mix-and-match vibe." Wholesale prices range from $38-$40 for separates and $80 for the maillot suits.
