Huge thank you to IYO Swimwear, Greenbelt Outdoors, Soleil Swim, TYLER’S, Rae Cosmetics, Tew Teg and those that submitted to model for this year’s swimsuit issue!

IYO Swimwear

After Doris Diaz McCandless first created her own swimsuit for a pageant in the Philippines, she decided to pass on the feeling of confidence to others by creating It’s Your Obsession Swimwear. Now, 17 years later, Doris operates entirely out of Austin, Texas, and works to ensure each swimsuit is complementary, comfortable and luxuriously fit for each customer’s body. Every suit is custom-made and meticulously hand-stitched by herself; some even take five to eight hours to make. Doris takes pride in making women feel confident and ready to conquer — whether it is on the runway, photoshoot or even just by the pool. For more information or to get in touch with Doris and her exclusive designs, visit www.iyoswimwear.design 

Soleil Swim

From there, Greenbelt Outdoors will provide a pin code to access one of their smart lockers.

Tew Teg

Local premium towel brand, Tew Teg (“Get Wet” spelled backward), makes post-workout and/or post-lake-day clean-up easy with their reversible, draw-string towels. The brand, founded by three Austinites, came about from wanting to solve a basic need: keeping the car seat protected from sweat while on the way home from the gym. Offered in three, reversible colors, pink, black and gray, Tew Teg towels can be easily slipped onto a car seat or even on the back of a chair while lounging poolside. To purchase one of their premium towels or learn more, visit tewteg.com.
