About Us

Hello there!

Meet  Marissa Barlow, creative director and photographer for Nani Swimwear.  Marissa has always had a passion for fashion and photography.  As a young designer, Marissa has a unique insight into what women want in the fit and style of their swimwear.  She turned to co-founders Amy Rasmussen and Janna Barlow to help bring her sketches to life.    

The Hawaiian word NANI, pronounced "naw-nee", means BEAUTIFUL.  Nani Swimwear believes in living a Nani (beautiful) life.   We live a #livenani by seeking adventure, being kind, and striving to give back.   

Perfecting the "Nani Fit" has always been at the forefront of the company's mission.  We believe a great Nani Fit will inspire confidence and help women feel beautiful.  What is the Nani Fit?  It is a fit made for adventure so you can hike, bike, or swim with comfort and support.   This combined with custom prints and fresh styles define the Nani suit.  All XXS - XL suits are made with a built in shelf bra.  There are no removable pads shifting around inside Small details, like breathable mesh, make each suit unique.
