BATHING BOOMERS SWIMWEAR
It's about time that women of all ages, stages, sizes and shapes have the opportunity to feel great about themselves in their swimwear.
"As a former model I swore I'd never go on a diet ever again - but I also want to feel dignified and comfortable." - Velvet Haney (Co-Founder)
Bathing Boomers is a swimwear line made for women of all ages, stages, sizes and shapes. Our swimwear offers sun protection and allows women to go from poolside to patio lunch in the same outfit.
It all began when two best friends, Velvet (62) and Rachel (70) decided it was time for women to have the opportunity to feel great about themselves in swimwear, no matter their age. Bathing Boomers swimwear covers the upper arms and legs, cinches at the waist, and minimizes the midsection with a flowing skirt.
Velvet and Rachel are far from typical businesswomen; Velvet's husband, Trivial Pursuit co-creator John Haney, jokingly calls them "the Canadian Grace and Frankie."
Rachel Manley is a poet, professor, and Governor General's Award-winning author. She is the daughter of Michael Manley, considered one of Jamaica's most popular prime ministers, and her grandfather, Norman Manley, led the negotiations that ended Jamaica's independence from Britain.
Velvet Haney is also an author - following a successful career as a model, Velvet wrote an autobiographical book, The Mousehouse Years, about her extraordinary childhood as one of six kids raised by a single mother in Toronto. She recently returned to school to complete her M.F.A. at the age of 62 and is currently working on the sequel.
Velvet and Rachel created the design for themselves initially. But as their discussions continued, it became clear that they could support every woman's choice if they offered a flattering swim dress to the public.
And so Bathing Boomers was born.
