Hey guys!

2 summers ago, I put these polls up and you guys told me exactly what you wanted if I were to ever design a swim line.

It took way way longer than I expected, but if there’s one thing I’ve learned about product development, it’s that rushing into anything is just a BIG MISTAKE WAITING TO HAPPEN.

I’ve seen every single one of your comments asking me to make a swim collection for POPFLEX, and I’m so happy to tell you that after 2 years of development, of sampling, of testing, and of many many failed styles…

POPFLEX Active Swim is FINALLY happening.

Coming…this Summer 2023 👙🏝️☀️

It was so fun to browse through the polls to see what you all actually asked for 2 years ago. It made me wonder: Have your thoughts changed?

But sharing those poll results now sparked LOTS of emotions.

It was interesting to see how a bunch of people hated on the poll results, saying how much they disagree, so I reposted the poll for everyone to get a second chance at voting. It had been 2 years anyway. But as you probably saw in my IG stories, nothing really changed.

Anyway, I thought it’d be interesting for you to see me sketch a design based on the poll results exactly.

The community votes ended up giving me an underwire bra with a high-waisted bikini brief.

    I absolutely love them, the bottoms look like they would work great with someone with my body type, I’ve had c-sections and 5 hernia surgeries and can never find bottoms to cover or fit, It is so hard to find great swimsuits, especially the bottoms,

  2. Laurie E Arnold says:

    The bottoms are too big. It is unattractive

  3. Anonymous says:

    I love it but for the small torso girlys like me the bottom of the top would just sit on the top of the bottoms. Also, the line in the middle back of the bottoms kinda makes it seem like a lower end product. But i LOVE so many of your products so you keep doing you girl!!❤️ Also now since it just turned pass 12 am now it’s my birthday and i’m so happy i got to be here sharing with your on it!! Nothing but love for you❤️❤️

  4. SheLovesDance says:

    IMO briefs are too high and I’m one of those “everything has to be at or above the belly button” kinda girls. Also ew to the underwire. No way. I’d much prefer something without.

  5. Delaney says:

    To be honest, everyone else is saying they don’t like it but i am in love. Because i don’t like showing a lotr of belling and i don’t like showing to much chest, but oh my, i love this so much, its so cute and looks comfy!

  6. Deyna Melissa Reynoso Reyes says:

    If it were up to me, I’d do a high-waisted bikini with a high cut slip, the bikini top would be a bandeau top with puff sleeves that ties at the back with a beautiful bow. I would use a double lined fabric to prevent the bikini from being see through and favor a containing effect to prevent our tatas from moving around. I was thinking of something in one color, In broderie anglaise fabric on the outside that covers the whole bikini (especially for the puff sleeves and the bow behind the back) and the inner lining of the bikini in swimwear fabric, very elastic But at the same time containing.

  7. Elizabeth says:

    I think the bottoms are way too high. It’s cute, but its something I could easily get on Amazon if I wanted it. I also think that the back would easily come apart. Maybe for another swimsuit, make the bottoms high rise and full coverage still but not as high. And give the top a little bit more uniqueness. Follow your creativity! You are super talented.

    1. Cassey says:

      Don’t worry! This was just to see what the poll results would look like in real life – SUPER interesting right?! The real designs will be coming soon 😉

  8. Mya says:

    I like the top but the bottoms feel boring to me. Something is missing from them but I can’t put my finger on what.

  9. Kat says:

    My midsection is so short that if I tried to wear this, the underwire would be sitting on the waistband. I love a basic racerback, pullover top and full rear coverage bottoms that don’t budge, no matter how you move.

    1. Shelovesdance says:

      Yesss agreed. Also no underwire.

  10. Haley says:

    I usually love your designs but this one looks like it’s for a much older lady! It also kind of looks like shapewear. I’m all for a vintage-style suit but this one just feels outdated!

  11. Katie says:

    I like the high waist idea and I dont wear swim bottoms unless they fully cover my bottom, so no high cuts, but this design does not look flattering. Why not make the waist crossed like your highwaisted workout Leggings? In fact just make some of your current shorts and skirts designs out of swim material. Also the top would be awesome if it was designed like the workout tanks that are cropped to meet up with the bottoms. Gives the illusion of a one piece with the convenience of a two piece.

  12. Henrietta says:

    I’m sorry to say I just don’t find this bikini to my taste as I prefer ones with a slightly sturdy material to create a more hour glass shape.

  13. Lisa Birkel says:

    Yes love the high waisted because after I had my son my stomach was not the same. Very pretty classy design

  14. Tiffany June Osowski says:

    I wouldn’t wear this. It looks like either a diaper or granny panties. No underwire for me. I want to relax, not wear what might as well be wearing an everyday bra to the pool. No thank you. Higher leg cuts is a must and not so high wasted. It needs a lot of love in my opinion before it’s ready for the open market. I know you’ve got this and you won’t let us down. I’m excited to see what you can do to make this cute and functional!

    1. Elizabeth says:

      I agree.

  15. Natalie says:

    Honestly the top is cute but I think the briefs are hideous 🙁

  16. Sasha says:

    Too high waisted! The diaper look is so unflattering, yuck.

  17. Jade says:

    Maby you van sel them difently and make some oters designs in the rest of the year so poeple can pick togeter wat they want because evreywhan has a difrent vision on swim wear😁

  18. Yeram says:

    i think the problems was that all these things were asked separately, and it didn’t look as good all together. How i would change this would be to make the bottom less high waisted and make a little dip in the middle to give it some personality. Higher leg cuts would lengthen the legs, so it would be great to have them as an option for shorts girlies like me❣️Also the top would look cuter it had wider straps, and the underwire thing is good, but it’s unflattering. How i would change it would be to add a little piece of drapey fabric or maybe add some other cute design, like some crossover thing under your boobs (idk what theyre called yet 😭). Also i has this idea, what it the straps stated out as like an inch think around the outer sides of the boobs and progressively got wider and closer to the neck area??? Would it be cute?
