I’m Taylor, the founder and creative director of Nomads. Through my experience as a designer, I've been exposed to the glacial pace that the fashion industry has taken when it comes to making size inclusion a priority. One of the many segments of the industry that this glacial pace is evident is the swimwear industry. Throughout my time as a plus-size model, this became apparent while on swimwear jobs where I was having to model matronly and modest swim styles made for curvy and plus-size women. I was often left wondering, who would wear these? Where are the cute brands that have extended sizing?
I soon realized that there are very few swim brands that make fun, sexy swim that caters to ALL sizes. Most brand's size ranges stop at size 12/14 or XL and they do not offer sizing for curvier women. When brands do sell sizes beyond a size 12/14 or XL too often, their offerings are watered-down versions of their other designs and are substantially more covered up. So there is an entire segment of women who just so happen to be curvy, but are left out when it comes to finding very stylish swimwear.
Enter Nomads Swimwear. At Nomads, we are bridging the gap by offering continuity across sizes in our chic, bold swim styles to show that real size inclusion is possible! It is our belief that everyone should have access to the same style of clothing, no matter their size, that is why it so important for us to have launched with an extensive size range of small-4X!
Our swimwear is adorned with unique prints and patterns inspired by my travels and is made with incredible fabrics that are built to last and can be worn by all you gorgeous humans!
