Designer, entrepreneur and native New Yorker, Mylitta Butler is reshaping the swimwear industry from the sunshine state of Florida. One swimsuit and one woman at a time. Her innovative designs are empowering women to celebrate their curves at any size and at any age. Her love of fashion and design started at a very early age. After living in Florida for several years, Mylitta quickly realized the unrealistic pressures women were putting on themselves to have the “perfect beach body” year round and it was daunting. Having struggled with her weight over the bulk of her adult life, Mylitta’s desire to feel confident in swimwear never wavered. And instead of continuing to stress herself out in countless dressing rooms trying to make her body fit a particular swimsuit, she set out to design one that would accentuate and celebrate a woman’s curves. And address an area often forgotten about by most designers of swimwear; the hips, waist, thighs and legs of a woman. And ultimately her goal was to make women look and feel confident at the beach and the pool.
Mylitta’s innovative designs transcend conventional swimwear into exclusive flattering, functional, second skin luxury pieces. Her designs lift and accentuate key areas of the body while providing the comfort and style for women to swim with confidence. Mylitta’s goal is to provide quality products with cutting edge designs and beautiful fashion forward fabrics. Every style is uniquely designed to highlight a woman’s true curves.
For Mylitta, being a swimwear designer isn’t about recreating what has already been done. It’s about creating inspiring designs that represent the modern day woman and her curves. She said, “We want women to effortlessly live by the MyLegkini® motto and Feel Empowered to Own the Summer. Make everyday and every vacation unforgettable.”
In her spare time when she is not working on new designs, Mylitta, a self proclaimed “foodie” enjoys spending time and cooking with her husband of 12 years, (retired Special Forces General, whose a disabled Veteran) and their very active 10 year old son. As well as playing with her two Doberman pincher puppies.
