Whether a bride is setting sail to Miami for an unforgettable bachelorette party or jet-setting to a private oasis in Bali for a dreamy honeymoon, bridal swimwear is finally getting the attention it deserves. No longer is the focus on the wedding dress. Today’s brides are seeking swimsuits that feel just as special as their entire wedding wardrobe.
Marrying the love of your life is the most exciting part of the wedding, and planning outfits for multi-day celebrations is likely a close second. A bridal swimsuit gives the bride their time to shine with sophisticated details worthy of a momentous milestone occasion. This is the time to play with shades of white, intricate details, and a bit of the unexpected.
One designer that is truly hitting the mark when it comes to creating the perfect bridal swimwear is Demi Raquel Thomas, CEO of La Chenille Bridal Bikini. Thomas is responsible for creating a leading luxury swimwear brand designed for brides on the beach. With more outside weddings and elopements taking place since the pandemic, the brand strives to be a go-to for brides wanting elegance and class at their beach or resort setting.
Born from the French word “Chenille” ―meaning “caterpillar” ― the swimwear brand is designed for brides who are blooming and transitioning to the next chapter of their lives. In Spring 2022, La Chenille Bridal is unveiling a new collection with the first of its kind ready-to-wear pieces that require no tailoring and no fittings.
Brides know that they are going to be the center of attention not only at their wedding, but on their honeymoon too and are focused on selecting styles that help them look and feel special. That’s why La Chenille Bridal sizing is inclusive. The polyester stretch material is a sustainable fabric and allows all women to feel confident in a swimwear collection that is made with the finest craftsmanship. There’s even a touch of fabric technology including wicking fibers that can withstand water, sand, and moisture.
Along with the new bridal bikini trend is the willingness to splurge on a pricier-than-normal swimsuit. In the spring collection, which debuted during NYFW Bridal this April, highlighted are both one and two-piece bathing suits with a variety of cuts and styles ranging from $600.00 to $1,490.00. The collection also includes maxi dresses, capes, skirts, and accessories including swim caps, sun hats, and headbands, priced from $290.00 to $2,220.00.
Key details ensure that the bride always feels that she is celebrating her special occasion. La Chenille Bridal’s new collection features a patented removeable bridal train. The attachable/detachable bridal train can be worn with any of the swimwear styles. The piece is available in long or short sizes and is symbolic of the brand’s core messages of strength, femininity, and beauty.
For the bride that’s looking for glamour and elegance, there’s a deep desire for dreamy pieces that are elevated and are in close keeping with a sophisticated wedding aesthetic. That’s why brides in the know are saying “I do” to La Chenille for bridal swimwear.
