Our Difference

Swimwear for Adventure

Put on any Mi Ola swimsuit and you immediately notice the difference. Each style features slight modifications from a traditional bikini, which result in an impeccable fit that grips your curves and keeps you looking smokin’ hot. Every component has been engineered to enhance, last, and keep you covered:

Fabric

All colors and patterns are fade-resistant and UPF 50+ to protect you from the sun. And this fabric won’t stretch out after hard use, so you don’t have to worry about your swimsuit being unable to keep up with you.

Seams

When we design a suit, we put it through rigorous testing on a variety of people to ensure it’s comfortable and stays on. Every seam has been constructed to withstand wear and to prevent chafing or discomfort.

Cup

Our tops don’t have padding, because padding acts like a sail when you’re in the water – it moves with the water instead of with your body. Instead, we line our tops with the same high quality lycra that’s used on the outside, making them more substantial and less flimsy than other brands.

Labels

We hate labels… and we don’t just mean that in an alternative, anti-establishment way. We know that labels can irritate sensitive skin, so we’ve made it easy for you to remove ours without damaging your suit. Really!

Embellishments

We only use hardware and embellishment in ways that won’t get in your way. If a bottom style has rings, we place them on the side so you won’t bruise your hip bones while surfing. Our metal rings are made out of brass (with no coating or paint that might chip off after you’ve worn it a few times) and are molded to fit your curves for a look and comfort you can’t find anywhere else.

Lining

Every suit is fully lined to ensure that where you’re covered, you’re really covered. With Mi Ola, you don’t just look great in your bikini – you feel secure, too.

Our goal is to make swimwear that fits your life and body so perfectly you’ll never want to go anywhere else. Have feedback? Let us know!

Garment Care

Take care of your swimsuit ... so it’s ready for adventure whenever you are

Life’s tough for a swimsuit — sunscreen, salt, oils, chlorine, and heat can all eat away at even the highest quality fabrics. But your Mi Ola bikini was made to keep up with you and designed for long-lasting mermaid perfection. With a little love, it can look smokin’ for years to come. Here's what to do:

Hand-wash after wear

Always wash your suit in cold water after you wear it, even if you didn’t swim. If you’ve got better things to do at the moment than laundry (who doesn’t?), be sure to at least rinse your bikini to get out any body oils, lotion, sunscreen, or other substances that might damage the fabric.

Use gentle detergent made for delicates

Baby shampoo will work, too.

Never machine wash or dry

The agitation and heat can stretch fabric and wear out fibers, changing the fit of your suit.

Lay flat to dry

Don’t wring out your swimsuit and don’t hang it by the straps or ties – this can cause stretching.

Keep it out of the sun when you're not wearing it

UV rays can cause fading.

Put on your sunscreen first

Keep sunscreen, oils, self tanner, and lotions as "away" from the suit as you can. That means putting on your sunscreen and letting it dry before putting on your suit. Re-apply with care!

Put something between your suit and rough surfaces

Cement and stone can snag your suit, pulling threads and wearing fabric. Use a towel or sarong as a layer of protection.

Give your swimsuit time to rest

Mi Ola swimsuits are 17% Spandex, a memory fabric that can snap back given time to dry and recover. If you’re wearing your swimsuit regularly, alternate between suits to give each one a break and avoid stretching them out.

Be wary of hot tubs

Hot tubs have both high chlorine levels and high temps, a lethal combo for swimsuits. It’s best to reserve hot tubs for suits you don’t mind fading or wearing down.

We want you to have your Mi Ola suit until you’re tired of it. The best way for that to happen is to take good care of it before and after you #getoutthere. Happy adventuring!
