Beach Salsa

Not only do I regard swimwear and resort shopping a yearround activity, I love mostly the pin-up girl style of the 1930s and 1940s. NICOLITA is a swimwear line a started and led a by a Cali girl who set out on a quest to discover her Cuban Roots. An Emmy winning documentary about her search and the line is touching. And shows that fashion can be so much more that simply what meets the eye, it is deeply embedded element of culture. The pieces are irresistably cute and made with curvy girls in mind. The Cuban-style bottoms are a signature part of the line with a no-pinch fit, an elastic band that doesn't dig into the hips, wider coverage around the hips, and shirring on the back that contours the behind and creates a flattering heart-shop backside. The Senorita Solids Off the Shoulder Crop Top is a great option for the top heavy girl who wants a sexy yet conservative option as an alternative to the default full coverage one piece.
