A father has designed a swimwear brand inspired for trans girls inspired by his daughter’s own transition.

Jamie Alexander from Toronto, Canada said he was inspired to create clothing after watching his daughter Ruby, who transitioned when she was nine years old, struggle to find swimsuits that she felt comfortable in.

He told Insider that Ruby often wore board shorts and sweatpants in place of traditional swimwear. But at age 11, she wanted to wear a bikini.

Alexander said he couldn’t find many options for form-fitting clothes of swimwear designed for trans kids – so he decided to make his own. read more

Toronto dad Jamie Alexander knows that shopping for kids isn’t always easy, which is why he and his 12-year-old daughter Ruby created a line of swimwear for transgender girls to help them feel more comfortable and confident every day. “Everything I saw was heavily branded just to trans people and had a quilted pad in the front.

“Towards the end of third grade, when she was ready to transition, Ruby started wearing brightly coloured sweaters with a sports bra underneath and purple leggings. It took Ruby a while to start wearing dresses, starting at holidays and occasions like Rosh Hashanah or a birthday party.” read more
