After embarking on a round-the-world trip with a close friend, designer Samantha August developed an increased passion and respect for ocean culture that led her to develop swim line, Basta Surf. Inspired both by travel and surfing, Augusts seamless, reversible suits with dual lining are constructed to withstand a rough day in the ocean and are designed with all female body types in mind. With the success of her swim line, August has also developed a clothing line that exudes beach ease, with luxurious fabrics, tribal prints, and bold colors.
I love the orange color and the purple and the fact that it is reversible. the only issue i have is when you actually go in the water to swim in it, its quite loose material even if you tie it as tight as possible. not a swimsuit you can body surf in. I had to be really careful when the waves came in case i lost the bikini and flashed everyone.the melon color becomes much darker when wet because of the purple fabric behind it. Also doesn't have good nipple coverage at all because the material is thin.It looks great when you are out of the water. I do wish it was more secure on your body in the water and a thicker material so that you don't have headlights shining all the time.
