These babes...they're babes, they're mamas, they're sisters, and they are making a wave in swimwear. And why we love them aside from the buckets of personality they have combined with business acumen? ....obviously for the mommy and me possibility they've created. Because twinning is winning!
Kara Haught & Shelly Hyde
If you haven't heard of Raising Wild Swimwear, then we are happy to introduce you! Kara Haught & Rachel Hyde (who goes by Shelly, and is the big sis in the relationship) launched the business 2 years ago, and since they've sent swimsuits all over the world. They grew up in the Florida sun, living in swimsuits, raising wild; so they just happen to know a thing or two about a good swimsuit. If you think these gals, the story, or something sounds familiar, it may be because you saw them on Shark Tank where they won the investment and support of Barbara Corcoran.
Our time with our new "RWS sister Barb" has really helped us elevate our professionalism and the potential of RWS becoming what we have always dreamt it to be. RWS will be releasing more products through out the year! Keep your eyes peeled!
