***Luv_Martha Mobile Bikini Bus***

I have been completely overwhelmed by the gushing support I have already received since I started my swimsuit company Luv Martha. As many of you know, I went through some really difficult times a few years ago and it has taken me awhile to recover emotionally and also financially. But I want to say how incredibly grateful I am to have stumbled upon this bikini makin'-- my swimmy business has completely turned my slump around and help me rediscover myself.

I am so freaking blessed to be doing something I adore doing and simultaneously making women feel good in their skin. I only make custom swimwear because our bodies are not defined by a number and are equally  beautiful and important. I want to make swimmmies people can LIVE in and also feel INCREDIBLE in--- no matter their size, age, insecurities, etc. We live in a world that constantly tells us we are not enough the way we are, we are not worthy of feeling great, that its okay for others to put us down and make us feel crappy/objectified/dumb/less than. My journey with this industry has been a personal exploration to rewire my own thinking and also (hopefully) help others discover that theyre effing glorious exactly as they are!

Ive been doing business via social media and email (thank you internet!!) but I think the only way to take this dream to the next level while also maintaining the integrity of doing custom-only pieces, is to buy a van and convert it into the first ever MOBILE BIKINI BUS--- a place where people can come get measured, see samples, pick out fabrics, and where i can also make bikinis while on the road.

The plan is to buy an old electricians/ contracters bus, gut the interior, bolt in one of my industrial sergers and racks for fabric and samples. I have done some research and it looks like I need around 3000 for the vehicle, and some investment to redo the inside. Then I will be able to pull up to surf spots, beaches, campgrounds, markets, etc and slang some bikinis and spread some body love <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3
