The story of the Sahra Nko corset swimsuit

“I chose this name because it is different from what we can find on the market.” 
Let’s find out more on the origin of the corset swimsuit, a timeless sculpting creation born out of Sahra Nko's idea.

The designer

Sahra is the designer and founder of the brand. She was born and grew up in the North of France.
From her very young age, she has been passionate of pin-ups and their corsets, so in 2015, she decided to launch an e-commerce business to offer women shapewear. 
She was successful to the point that the Elle magazine dedicated her an article in December 2015. 
This appeared to Sahra as a revelation who started to think on a grand scale. 
At first, she aimed at designing her own shapewear brand.
But summer was coming, and many clients asked her the same question:
“Is it possible to wear it on the beach and bathe with it?” 
Unfortunately, the materials of the shapewear weren’t suitable for bathing. 

The birth of the corset swimsuit by Sahra

Hence, Sahra started to consider designing another model that would meet her clients’ needs.
Little by little, she thought of the corset swimsuit, and it took shape, as if it was self-evident. 
To design a swimsuit with a girdle that does not constrict their body, so that women who wear it feel comfortable and at ease
Using the money she had saved, she moved to Italy.
It was the beginning of a new adventure, steeped in emotions, in the Dolce Vita country.
After 3 years of testing, investment and dedication, the corset swimsuit was finally born!

Handmade and unique pieces

Sahra's creation process finds its inspiration in many sources. 
Mainly, her fascination for the feminine curves and her passion for the Hollywood movie stars of the 50s.
