Welcome, I'm Christina the owner of Rewired Swim. I always hoped I would own a business one day and I feel so lucky & privileged that I get to do what I love for a living. I started Rewired Swim in a very desperate time in my life. I was feeling very lost and unfulfilled in all aspects of my being. I finally had the courage to start Rewired Swim after a trip to Hawaii where the root of all my inspiration comes from. Not many know this but I'm half Native American from the Caddo Tribe of Oklahoma. When you support this company you are supporting an Indigenous woman owned company. I lived in Hilo for two years and because Hawaii is filled with Indigenous culture and values for the first time in my life I felt connected to parts of me that were there before but not understood. Hawaii gave me a piece of myself that I would not have had otherwise and it will always remain close to my heart. There have been many ups and downs for me since starting this business but the thing i'll never forget about R.S is that this passion project of mine has been the thing that saved my life.
If you would have asked me 10 years ago if I would be wearing cheeky bikinis the answer would have been absolutely not. I often get questions about why I don't offer many full coverage styles as if I'm doing it to leave people out of reach of my product. I want to start by saying that I support confidence in any way a woman wants to show that confidence. If it's at a topless beach or in a long sleeve shirt and leggings, I support that. Part of being someone who survives life by being able to express their creativity while also doing it as a job is having to stop creating what I love for the sake of others. While I do fully enjoy creating for others, I lose myself in it quite often by trying to please people to the point I forget why I even do this which has left me feeling quite miserable at times. To answer the question, I don't make a ton of full coverage bottoms not because I want to exclude anyone from this community, but because they aren't what I love and they aren't what inspires me. I don't believe you have to have a certain body type to wear my swimwear, but I do believe you have to carry the confidence, as well as love the style.
Throughout my life I have been a size 6 to 18. I started making swimwear when I was a size 8, and have worn my bikinis, cheeks out and all even when I was a size 18. As women our bodies are under a microscope and for me when I wear my Rewired Swim, it's me saying to you and the world that this is for me and me only. I'm going to enjoy this beach in this beautiful piece despite what you or others may think of it. I'm going to sit on this beach, and for the first time in my life, breathe, and enjoy the sound of the waves without thinking about my body. My swimwear gives me that confidence and I hope it gives that to you as well. With all this said I want to say thank you to anyone and everyone who has allowed me this platform over the years. You have truly kept me inspired, motivated, and feeling like I can continue being the person I sit here and say I am. This company has been one of the biggest parts of my life but It could have never happened if you didn't believe in me to make it happen.
I can't wait to be apart of your story, and hope that no matter where you are that you feel confidence to be who you are, where you are, in what you are wearing. Stay fearless Rewired Babes.
