    I love the suits! They look beautiful and functional. I’m so happy to hear that Helena and Mi Ola are recovering from Hurricane Sandy. She has a great attitude and deserves to succeed.

    I love these suits! I’m glad that Helena and Mi Ola were able to pick up the pieces after Sandy and are making a comeback. Thanks for sharing!

    Now I crave the smell of Sticky Bumps.

    I don’t crave getting water up my nose though, so living far from surfing isn’t ALL bad! ;)

    **Booking trip to Costa Rica asap!** ;) The suits are gorgeous – makes me want to try surfing even more now. Plus, love her advice – #1 and #2 are perfect!

    Thanks for sharing Helena’s story. What an inspiration to follow your dreams! And I love her advice – rings true for pretty much any situation in life! Definitely going to check out the Mia Ola suits. Could use a wedgie, slip-free suit for chasing the girls around the pool and water slides!

    Those suits are adorable! My sis lives in Hawaii and always says she has a hard time finding swimsuits for surfing!

    Great interview. Wow- talk about a challenge in the first year of business! She’s so right- stuff happens, and you just have to learn how to keep going and become stronger for it.

    Cute suits! Wish I could wear a bikini. But if I did, wonder if the girls would stay put in such tops? Super cute though. But I like the story behind the fashion line. Life’s mysterious ways putting us on the path we were meant to be on.

    Oh they’re great! Surfing or not, I just bodysurf and I feel like this is vital. No weird cups moving all around!

    Very sad about Hurricane Sandy – what a way to be starting a business. I agree with what the previous commenter said about it making you stronger. You rock!

    What a great story! Love that she brings high-end fashion knowledge to the bathing suit world. I am headed to her web site from here, for sure. I also love that she chucked the rat race for her passion–always inspiring. Now I can’t wait to see her succeed both in business, and in life post-Sandy. Thanks for bringing us her story!

    I live by the beach and my biggest complaint with bikinis has always been that they are so impractical and I am constantly pulling at them (or holding onto them for dear life in the surf so they don’t come off). Brilliant idea. Glad you are recovering after Sandy. Sh*t does happen to some extent to everyone and you have bounced back. SO good for you!!! Your daughter is really cute and I want to go to Costa Rica!!!!

    Beautiful suits!!! I don’t surf (or really have plans to try) but I still like the way those suits look – I hate bikinis with really small bottoms!!!

    So great to know! Now that I am resigned to the idea of living in Florida forever, I figure I should get back in the water. No surfing on the Gulf Coast but we have lots of fabulous kayaking and paddleboarding and boating and… lots of bikini wearing. I’m going to definitely check them out. Of course, now, between the two of you, I want to go back to Costa Rica :)
