Get to know the SOLEIL ROSE founder and learn what empowers her to live life to the fullest.
TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF:
I'm a stay-at-home-mom turned swimwear company founder, and also hold a medical degree. I was a stay-at-home-mom for the past 15 years, until I felt I had needs after breast cancer that were not being met by the products available on the market. I've talked a lot about breast asymmetry in relation to SOLEIL ROSE- knowing that women with uneven breasts are finding great solutions with our swimsuits has made this experience so gratifying.
WHICH SOLEIL ROSE PIECE IS YOUR FAVORITE?
My favorite piece is the Maya One-Piece. I love the way it flatters my midsection and supports my chest comfortably, at the same time giving me the lift I need on my affected side. I also love how versatile it is. I wear it with a sarong after the beach so I can seamlessly go from sand to outdoor cafe.
WHAT'S SOMETHING THAT'S IMPORTANT TO YOU?
The most important people in my life are my family. I have three kids- two daughters and a son, and a husband who is my best friend and boyfriend! Without their support, I don't know how I would have started a swimwear company. When I doubt myself, they cheer me on. I value the importance of showing our kids that they should experience things in life, even if they are outside of their comfort zone. I want to be an example of that for them. We live once, so just go for it!
WHAT GIVES YOU CONFIDENCE AND MAKES YOU FEEL EMPOWERED?
Understanding that perspective can turn most road blocks into stepping stones helps me feel confident to take on new challenges. I have been told that I see life through rose colored lenses. I don't think there's anything wrong with that!
SOMETHING WE DON'T KNOW ABOUT SOLEIL ROSE:
My swimsuits are named after my pride and joy- My daughters Maya and Nina.
