Designer swimwear can be affordable and suit every body type, according to bikini model Shayla Cofini, who is about to launch her own swimsuit brand.
You only need a quick scan of Shayla Cofini’s Instagram account to know that the 25-year-old model has a keen eye for a cute bikini. Surprisingly, it’s not the countless swimsuit photoshoots she’s done that ignited her passion for swimwear, but rather her unique upbringing on the beaches of Costa Rica and California.
“I was born in Costa Rica and lived there for the first five years of my life,” Shayla explains. “After that, I moved to the Laguna Beach area in California with my mom. It definitely got me interested in swimwear from a very young age.” In fact, she often designed her own bikinis and clothes while growing up, even learning to sew so she could wear her own creations.
