VANCOUVER, July 27, 2011 /CNW/ - Bikinis are gaining momentum with those outside the niche market of 20-something beach babes. Western Canadian swimwear retailer Swimco has partnered with Australian swimwear supplier Seafolly on a project entitled "Bikini at Any Age", to prove that women of all ages can look and feel good in a bikini that suits their body type and lifestyle.

"The idea for this feature came from seeing our 40+ female customers come in assuming that a bikini is no longer an option for them, and being pleasantly surprised", says Swimco President Lori Bacon. Swimco is spreading the word that bikinis are available in a wide variety of fits and a spectrum of coverage, designed to flatter different body types. Swimco's most popular styles this season include Seafolly's bikini tops with DD-E cup support, and conversely, their Booster Bra that enhances a smaller bust. Bottom coverage ranges from a near-Brazilian cut to a skirted bottom with a built-in brief.

"Our 'Bikini at Any Age' images celebrate women from ages 23 to 61, each in a bikini that they personally feel comfortable in. The most important feature of any swimsuit is that it makes you feel confident", says Bacon. "We chose women from a range of ages, with relatable body types, so that women of all ages, shapes, and sizes are inspired to give that bikini a try!"
