Swimwear for Rad Adventurous Women

 

 

Designed for the Wild. Made for You. We want you to love how you feel so you can do what you love!

 

 

 

We’re a Swimwear Company With Soul!

 

Hey! Im Sara, surf enthusiast and nature lover. I’m super passionate about what we’re trying to achieve with PARC and I know you will be too. 

I want to be able to get out on the water and not feel self conscious. I want grab my long board and go have fun. And I want everyone to feel the same way!

Looking at all these images of super tanned ladies with one body type in every single image can get depressing. I’ve talked with so many women who don’t want to get out on the water solely because of how they feel in a bathing suit. I know how amazing being active and being on the water makes me feel and I want that for every one. You shouldn’t feel that you can’t do something because of the way that main stream media has portrayed women in that sport.

I want all women to feel confident to get out there so I wanted to create swimwear that makes you love how you feel so you can do what you love! 

But we can’t make this happen without your help. Please share and/or pledge to our campaign and help us make a difference.

– Sara 

 

 

What’s Unique About A PARC Suit?

  • Our designs are all based off the needs for active women with different shapes. There is a style to accommodate different bust sizes, bum coverages and different activities. 
  • Our swimwear is made with a high-quality, soft, supportive and quick dry fabric. Think along the lines of a silky soft really light neoprene. No saggy bums here!
 

 

The Impact

We’re not just about bikini’s:

    • You are helping us to make a positive impact on the industry and in the lives of young women. We feature the real women and positive role models who wear our suits. These women come in all shapes and sizes and we want to promote a positive body image no matter your shape.
    • We want to keep our footprint as minimal as possible which is why we design in Vancouver and manufacture in the USA. 
    • We donate 10% of profits to organizations that encourage young women to get active and build confidence. The money goes to creating scholarships for these programs for girls who don’t have the financial means to attend.

 

What We Need:

  • We need enough capital in order to run production with our manufacturer and create inventory. 
  • All funds will go towards purchasing bulk orders of fabric and production costs. 

 

How You Can Help:

  • By supporting us on this Indiegogo campaign by pledging one of the options below. 
  • By sharing us to all your friends and family through the Indiegogo share links. We want to get the word out about our amazing swimwear and initiatives and we need your help!

Risks & Challenges:

A potential risk and challenge with our project is production timing. Right now our time line is based on our successful crowd fund amount, plus a bit more, but if we were to have a much larger then expected response this could effect how fast we are able to produce all that swimwear and apparel. We are hoping to mitigate this potential challenge by letting our factory know in advance and also to keep all of our crowd funders up to date on progress.
