Where does the name “Trunkettes” come from?
Trunkettes are stylish and comfortable swim trunks designed to make women feel good about themselves in and out of the water. We consider the name “Trunkettes” as a female version of swim trunks.
How did Trunkettes start and who started it?
Trunkettes was founded by Hilary Genga. She was in search of a trendy bathing suit that provided more freedom and comfort than traditional swimwear. Guys had swim trunks but there wasn’t anything cute and sexy for active women. She came to me with the idea of creating swim trunks for women that were stylish with a bit more coverage. We’ve since expanded the line to a full range of confidence building swimsuits and trunks for women.
What was the hardest thing about designing the latest collection?
I would say the hardest part about finalizing this collection was editing it down. So many fun ideas and elements filled the design floor table, but a lot had to be cut back. I tried to narrow in and only go forward with the best pieces that really made a statement!
What types of features are incorporated in your designs?
Our swim trunks are made of water resistant nylon that has the perfect amount of stretch, and they feature a built in bikini bottom lining.
What was your inspiration for your spring 2015 collection?
A life-changing trip to Guatemala last spring gave me tons of inspiration for our Spring 2015 collection! I quickly fell in love with the vibrant prints and gorgeous textiles that lined the market streets!! I also drew inspiration from California surfer girl wetsuits. We’re introducing a new sporty neoprene fabric that is to die for, with super cute zipper details.
We’re also introducing The Trixie. It is an entirely different look from anything out there but continues with the Trunkettes tradition of helping women enjoy swimsuit season instead of dreading it. It’s one swimsuit that works for all body types, offering undeniable slimming appeal for curvier women and enhanced curves on slender women. The one piece + bandeau top in mix-and-match colors also provides great support and shows off curves in all the right places. We’re excited for its debut.
What differentiates your line from the other brands in your industry?
We are the only women’s swimwear company built around the swim trunk concept and the notion that you don’t have to sacrifice style and fun for a little more coverage. We’re designing swimsuits that deliver confidence and the feeling of freedom to enjoy pool time.
Who do you envision wearing Trunkettes?
