"I've lived near the beach my entire life and have gone through hundreds of swimsuits that would either have a short life or wouldn't fit right. It wasn't until I discovered BeachCandy Swimwear that I realized what a true swimsuit should be. BritB at BeachCandy is one the most kind people I've had the privilege of meeting. She really cares about her customers creating a the perfect suit for them, and with her attention to detail, passion for design, and dedication to beautiful elegance, BritB seamlessly accomplished her mission. I have personally worked with BritB on 4 custom suits, one of which was my Bridal Bikini for my honeymoon, and it was such a great experience. I described the style I wanted, picked the color, she measured me and gave me her expert design opinion (which I of course took!) and I told her how much Swarovski 'candy' I wanted. I came back in a couple weeks to pick it up and I have never worn something that fit me so perfectly. Any time I wear one of my custom BeachCandy suits, I am approached by people asking me where I got my suit and how they have never seen anything like it before. They truly are one of a kind."

"I am so happy with my purchase, this is the best fitting suit I have ever owned! Usually the suit shopping experience is not pleasant. Shopping at BeachCandy was a wonderful experience. You made everything so easy! I especially love the black mesh cover up and the canvas bag I got as well. The next stop for my suit is my birthday trip to Cabo later this spring."

"I am a full figured women who has never been able to wear off-rack swimsuits because my top half and bottom half are not typical department store rack size. Brit's assurance and confidence that I would love my swimsuit, feel sexy, and be appropriate for a family trip was an under statement! I looked and felt sexy in my swimsuit just as Brit assured me. The bottom part fit perfect, it covered my full rear (my junk in the trunk). The top was made to cover the sides of my breast (the part that can hang out over the sides of your bra) I was very secure and confident every time I stepped out in my custom-made BeachCandy."

"My name is Rachel and I am a 34F so as you can imagine finding a swimsuit that fits has been quite an ordeal over the years. I hated the whole experience since I was young and dreaded summers because I knew I was not going to find something that made me feel good about being on the beach. I was always having to settle on fit and style.
When I heard about BeachCandy by BritB and that they did custom swimwear I knew that I had to check it out. It was an adorable little boutique with a friendly and knowledgeable staff. Brit personally worked with me to find out what I was looking for with fit and style. I had never been able to wear a swimsuit without under wire and that tied from the neck and back. I was assured that it could be done and would be very supportive. She truly had an expert understanding of how swimwear should fit a woman's figure. I was able to custom design the print along with the color of the crystals I wanted on my suit. The finished product turned out gorgeous. Brit personally fit the suit and made any adjustments I needed. For the first time I was able to walk out of a place with a swimsuit I loved. Overall wonderful experience, really changed how I felt about wearing a swimsuit. You won't be disappointed."

"My name is Charlie Q and I live in Anaheim, CA. As a fitness model and bikini competitor I am always on the lookout for a great eye catching bikini that can make my already toned body look even better. When I walked into BeachCandy, my mouth started salivating. Maybe that is why it is called BeachCANDY!! There were so many beautiful colors and styles to choose from in addition to all of the gorgeous Swarovski crystals glittering all around me. As if that weren't exciting enough, Brit was on hand to custom fit my bikini. It is hard to imagine that one could go in for three separate fittings for a bikini but that is exactly what I did. And this was not because I was dissatisfied in the least. It was because Britt is a perfectionist and wants each suit she lays her hands on the be perfect!! And perfect it is. I later had pictures taken in that gorgeous bikini that I now use on my business cards and on my website. Brit, you are the best!! Thank you for a wonderful experience. Bikini season is fast approaching and I can't wait to see you again!!"

"What could be better than a custom made swim suit? Off the rack just can't replace the exceptional individual fit achieved by Brit's custom-made approach. Beach Candy offers a truly unique style which couples custom fit with Swarovski crystals. You won't run into anyone with the same suit at any backyard barbecues! (Incredibly handsome and fun boyfriend not included! ;))"

"BeachCandy created the most brilliant emerald green suit for me to wear on and off stage. Brit, I want to thank you for how you listened and put into action my design ideas, request for cut and style into the suit. My bikini flatters my figure and color tone perfectly. Heads turn every time I wear it! The fabric, beading and construction of the suit are top of the line! I'm already starting to dream up the next suit we can create together!"

"Several years ago, I bought a bikini that I loved at a resort in the British Virgin Islands. It had a unique strapless top that was really flattering and fit well. It finally "died" and I looked everywhere for something to replace it ...and even bought a few new suits but they all seemed to need a strap to stay in place. When I found BeachCandy, I brought my old top to Brit, the owner, and she assured me that she could duplicate my top. First we had to find the right print and after she ordered some swatches for me several times, I found one that I really liked. Next, we had two or three fittings to make sure the top and the bottom fit the way I wanted. I always felt that Brit's priority was to make sure I got exactly what I wanted and I never felt rushed when making a decision about some aspect of the fitting process. As promised, I received my new suit in time for my trip to Buenos Aires. I came back with a great tan and a great new suit. I would definitely recommend this swim suit atelier to my friends and will use BeachCandy again for my next bikini."

"With only a month away from my very first fitness bikini competition I hadn't yet even picked a bikini to wear on stage. I spent all last summer flipping through pages of magazines, looking online and finally found exactly what I was looking for; BeachCandy. I wanted something that best represented myself on stage and something I could still wear again and again. I immediately called the store and booked an appointment with BritB, the designer/owner, for a custom fitting. While my body was changing size and would continue to change up until the day I stepped on stage, I needed someone who was a professional and someone who would be honest with me about what shapes, cuts & colors accentuated the right areas for my figure. Walking into BeachCandy feels like you are on vacation! She helped me pick the right color, tried on different styles, hand picked my own Swarovski Candy for my bikini and I even found accessories and my jewelry in the shop to compliment my new Beachcandy bikini! Before my bikini was done I was called to come back in for a final fitting to make sure everything was perfect. Its so important to feel confident in your bikini, with BeachCandy I felt sexy and comfortable in my swimsuit knowing I had the best fit for my figure and an amazing designer helping me complete the look I wanted. The day of my competition every girl backstage was oogling over my bikini and the quality of it, thank you so much BeachCandy for making my first fitness competition such a great and memorable experience!"

"I had a custom bathing suit made at BeachCandy Swimwear because I was unable to find a bathing suit that fit me properly. All the really cute 2-piece bathing suits were just an inch or two too skimpy. At BeachCandy Brit took all my measurements and now I have the perfect fitting bathing suit. I don't feel like I am going to fall out of my suit when I am in the water with my kids! The hardest part was trying to decide what color/pattern to choose first! The best part is she keeps everything on file and when I want a new color/style all I have to do is give her a call and she can make one with the measurements she has on file. My husband figured that one out! Amazingly, it was my husband that encouraged me to go to Brit in the first place. He saw how discouraged I was when I couldn't find a proper fitting suit. I love to stop by her store, because I can always find something to buy....a cover-up, a pair of shoes, there is always something fun!"

"I shop a lot, and I particularly like shopping for swimsuits. We all know that shopping for swimwear isn't easy, because let's face it how many of us truly look that good in a bathing suit? Years of good living perhaps having children and neglecting work-outs can all take a toll on our confidence in stepping out in a new suit. So I can't tell you how thrilled I was to run across BeachCandy in Corona Del Mar, CA. As I walked by I spotted the eye catching Candy of the bathing suits on display I immediately knew that to wear one of those stylish suits on display would make me feel like I was a Sports Illustrated Model.
When I wear that Fourth of July themed BeachCandy that I spotted in the window last June 2011, I am confident it is the best bikini out there in fit, design, quality and detail. And when I wear that BeachCandy suit, and other suits I have purchased at BeachCandy since, I experience the confidence of knowing that while I may not truly look like that 20 something year old SI model I'm still turning heads which at my age of 44. Having had those moments, I congratulate Brit, the owner of the store. And what used to be hard, shopping for swimwear is now so easy that I call BeachCandy and order from my home in the Bay Area without even having to try the suits on anymore!"

"From the moment I stepped foot into BeachCandy I fell in love with their innovative bathing suit designs and their gorgeous first class style. This was exactly what I had in mind for a perfect bathing suit scenario, a custom bathing suit for me that I could wear like a piece of art and no one else had the same thing on as me at the beach, pool, or on vacation. I brought in a favorite old weathered swimsuit and they not only recreated the silhouette, but perfected the fit, and added a little bit of Swarovski 'Candy'. I wore my first BeachCandy suit to Vegas on a girls trip and was showered with compliments."
