Our Mission


At AKOYA, we’ve made it our mission to provide extraordinary swimwear for extraordinary women. Our high standards in craftsmanship is not mere luxury, but a fundamental foundation at AKOYA. Founded by women, for women, every detail is designed for every body in mind. Enhance your natural curves with comfort and confidence.

Here at Akoya swimwear, we strive to make an impact — or rather, make less of a negative impact on our society and world. We do this in a few different ways, from designing a line of curve-enhancing suits for all shapes and sizes, to carefully planning our manufacturing processes so they lessen our carbon footprint, particularly in the realm of water pollution. After all, our work and lives revolve around the ocean, and we’d like to do our part to preserve it as best as we can.

Our Founder

Provoked by a snag in today’s swimwear industry, where body issues are exemplified for media engagement, sizes are carelessly categorized for mass consumption, and quality and craftsmanship are abandoned for profit, Olivia Bickerstaff sets herself for a mission to lead the swimwear industry towards a brighter future through AKOYA’S thoughtful and wholesome designs.
