Frustrated with the ill-fitting choices at department stores and the time-consuming work of online shopping, Brittney Hanks decided to take swimsuits into her own hands. Seeing the tasteful results of her sewing, friends and family cajoled her into crafting hundreds of suits that fit and flatter the female form. Brittney's suits were so popular that she was eventually forced to outsource the work and focus on designing suits that fit every body type. She specializes in tankinis and one-piece suits of armor; her nylon-spandex creations contain waist-defining ruching, fashionable high-waisted and boy-short bottoms, and a variety of skirts that show off assets without baring too much skin.
