HydroChic is proud to offer comfort and style to women of all ages. Each of our customers has her own reason for wanting to show less skin, and whether it stems from modesty, sun safety or a simple matter of preference, we are thrilled to be able to provide a chic and practical swimwear solution (with UPF 50+ Sun Protection).
As an increasing number of “barely there” swimsuits swarm our favorite summer spots, it can be a bit intimidating to strut the boardwalk in something different. That’s why we think it’s important for you to know that you’re not alone, and why we’re excited to premiere our new SPOTLIGHT on US project, relaying the relate-able experiences of customers just like you!

Silencing Her Inner Critic
All too often, people are forced to give up hobbies they love for reasons beyond their control, like health issues or unforeseen lifestyle changes. It’s a shame that what lurks behind many of these sad stories is an all too effective culprit…………… body consciousness.
Amy, a 38-year-old clinical pharmacist, used to love summertime activities in the sun. The beach, the lake, the pool – you name it, she was there. Then, following the birth of her son, she suffered a plight that is far too familiar to so many women…weight gain. Amy found it challenging to enjoy the water & sun with one eye constantly critiquing her appearance in a swimsuit, and even when wearing shorts on top of the one-piece swimsuit, she still felt uncomfortable. Though her hometown in coastal Texas offers both the ideal weather for year-round hiking, and many scenic sites, Amy’s frequent family trips to national wildlife refuges and state parks were somewhat spoiled by the restrictive ensembles she wore in order to appease her inner critic: skorts atop long leggings.
When it got to the point at which she simply stopped participating in many of the activities that she once enjoyed simply because of the required attire, Amy, like so many others, turned to the Internet. Looking for a suitable alternative to traditional swimwear that would offer freedom, comfort, style and, most importantly, coverage, she happened upon HydroChic, and after her first order arrived, she knew she’d finally found the solution she’d been desperately seeking.
“After I tried it on and looked in the mirror, I felt great about how it looked on me. My husband actually said it looked great and was slimming on me. He asked me to check if you guys made day to day clothing since it was so flattering.”
Amy, looking for leg coverage that would prevent chafing, chose the breathable, action-friendly swim skirt, which she finds very comfortable and wears for all the activities she’s reintroduced into her life, including fishing.
“I kind of forget I have it on. I think that’s my favorite part!”
Now she can fully enjoy the outdoors without any nagging from that persistent inner critic.
