Save the world, and look good doing it! That’s my motto And that’s just what Maaji Swimwear is helping us do! For every swimsuit purchased from their current collections, Maaji will plant a tree on your behalf. Simply stated, you buy the most comfortable, flattering, whimsical bikini you’d ever imagine, and a new tree is born!
Maaji’s formed “Planting an Ocean of Trees” to give back to the endless source of inspiration for their swimsuit designs. With our help, they have successfully planted over 50 thousand trees. These trees promote an immense number of positive effects for our environment, which contribute to the balance of ecosystem diversity. So keep them coming! You can never do enough good (or have enough swimsuits )
It’s little acts of kindness that make the world go round. Add in the most amazing little bikini you’ve ever seen and there you have it ladies & gentlecats, the trendiest way to save our Earth.

This is going to sound corny, but we take pride in how much ‘style training’ we provide to our team of Fashion Specialists. In order to sell designer swimwear online, we must be able to offer sound advice to customers that call, email, and chat. It’s normal to have doubts about fit, size, and style, and it’s hard to shop for a swimsuit without trying it on! This is a fact we can relate to. That’s how the event now known as the “Staff Try-on Party” came about. An unconventional form of training takes place during this event. There’s a method behind this terrifying but liberating experience, and staff are able to reflect on this after the fact. Before they do it though, it is commonly known as a certain form of torture. :) WHAT IT IS We select various styles, ranging widely in fit & sizing, rear coverage, cleavage visibility, and ... read more!

Malai Swimwear is not just one of our unique, exclusive brands. They are also a brand with a few of select styles that are “full of secrets.” (If you’re a mean girls fan, you can hear the whisper.) Their collection this year has definitely evolved with their immense attention to detail and ability to surprise you. “How,” you ask. For starters, the Twilight Snow is famous for it’s chic bow feature on the front of the bandeau bikini. Guess what? It’s removable if your heart desires it! What I love about removing this detail is that the bandeau has ruching at the top. This keeps it looking far from plain without the bow, and gives some wanted cleavage! The magic show isn’t done with this piece, my friends. The moderate coverage bottom can also be fully reversed to purple. The star of this collection for me is the ... read more!

So, this weekend Orchid Boutique had the pleasure of putting together a video shoot for some of our most popular styles. If you know our boss, Mayra, you’d know that the initial 100 “most popular styles” quickly turned into 120, and then "maybe more than 120"…and we ended up with somewhere around 200 styles. Psh… what a long, fast, crazy, tiring, exciting weekend! But I wouldn't have it any other way! (Us Orchid Babes are a little intense ;) ) Our main model, Anna couldn’t have been more perfect. She was so much fun and really fell in love with all of our bathing suits. And besides that… she was gorgeous! We hired a second model for the second day of our shoot Kajsa. Just as gorgeous, but more in that blonde bombshell kind of way. Two fantastic models that really rounded out our video shoot. The directors, producers, cinematographers ... read more!

Women love to shop, but when choosing swimwear, who are we shopping for? A survey in Marie Claire magazine that took into account the opinions of 100 randomly selected men show that the fashion swimwear we love may be different than what men prefer on women. Basically, the survey reported that the majority of men like classic swimsuits on women, including moderate coverage bikinis and one piece bathing suits. Maybe they have a point. These suits are flattering on any body type and come in amazing designs. Perhaps suits like Goddess Indigo One Piece by Seafolly or Neo Bandeau Bikini by L*Space would be the surprise winner of your boyfriend’s beach fantasies. Luckily, being the modern women that we are, we often enjoy dressing for ourselves and embrace the fashions that most of the guys surveyed didn’t quite get: monokinis and high fashion bikinis covered in beads, gold hardware, ... read more!
