Swimwear designer for mature women
I am an entrepreneur, online store owner, swimwear designer and on a mission for all women to enjoy summer.

Beginning my career as a marketer, I worked across industries to eventually specialise in professional services marketing and thought leadership. I studied an MBA, had three children, renovated my home and found myself in midlife wanting more. On the beach one summer, inspiration hit, and I began my side hustle, Es Una.

I now design swimwear and run my business to provide women with so much more than a swimsuit. My desire is to support women to build confidence, providing smart swimwear solutions focused on sun safe, flattering and classic styles to enjoy the beach and embrace summer. I am a Women In Innovation Award Winner for my unique designs, providing dresses, tops and bottoms that reflect a more appropriate, flattering approach to a rashie or rash vest. My customers share stories of building confidence and enjoying summer again.
Mature swimwear for women
Body image / body confidence
Dog walking, coffee with friends, beach views
We often hear about the impact of social media on young girls and concerns with body image, but older women are equally at risk. Deakin University research tells us that nearly 70% of adult women report withdrawing from activities due to their body image. 30% report being too uncomfortable in their swimsuit.

Many women are in conflict, trapped in a groan zone of uncomfortable, in an invisible struggle to gain the self confidence of their youth. That's how I felt as I travelled through my 40s on my 'veri peri' journey. So, I created Es Una, giving women a swimwear solution to complement their body and give them the confidence to reclaim summer.

Es Una in Spanish roughly translates as ‘Is Feminine’, a statement of female strength and confidence that provides the foundations on my swimwear ethos. My range includes rashie dresses, tops and bottom that provide skin and body confidence when you hit the beach each summer.
