I'm Aimee the founder and CEO of Goldesse. I've spent my career as a garment technologist working for a variety of brands and wondering why the industry I love has decided to close the door to so many women.
I realised that the market is flooded with outdated styles in throwaway fabrics with a goal to cover up as much of the body as possible. Meanwhile the luxury swim space it's a different story... a dreamy, timeless & luxury narrative.
Despite some giant leaps towards positive change in recent years my research of 48 luxury swimwear brands showed that only 12.5% go beyond a UK Size 16. Thats 88% of luxury brands that exclude women above a UK 16.
I started Goldesse to create a fresh vision for inclusive swimwear. I design each piece to be elevated and inclusive meaning you don't have to pick one or the other when shopping for swimwear. Each style has been created with your curves in mind and I pride myself on the quality I produce. ( If you didn't know by now, I hand make every style you see on the site here in the UK ) By paying attention to detail I've been able to create a fit that supports you without restricting.
