How it began!

It started one day on the beach in Clearwater Florida. Lucy was wearing a custom bikini she had made for herself. A lady visiting from Germany asked Lucy where she bought her bikini, Lucy replied “I made it”, the lady asked Lucy if she had more and if Lucy could make one for her? Lucy did not have more and the lady from Germany was leaving the country the following day and wanted that suit so much she offered to buy the bikini she was wearing (odd I know), at that point Lucy decided to get into the swimwear business.

Lucy started nice and slow, making bikinis for friends at the beach. Soon she was taking orders/request for colors and styles. Next, she was making custom suits for bikini contest and Hooter’s girls. This went on for several years until it got to the point of too many people were coming to their house. At this point it was time to open a store, so Lucy joined forces with her husband Clyde.

In 1996 they opened a little boutique in Clearwater Florida. It went well for 3 years, during this time they started their website ( in 1998. Lucy did the designing and most of the sewing, in the beginning, Clyde did the website, helped with office work and even learned how to sew. Continuing the concept of growing slow and steady, it was time for a bigger store and workshop.

In 1999 they moved to Tampa Florida, for more space. They stayed there for 10 years while still growing.

In 2009 they moved to Clearwater (time for bigger store and shop). Currently, Suits You Sexy Swimwear specializes in unique sexy bikinis, custom contest bikinis. Lucy still does all the designing, Clyde still creates and maintains their website.

PS, in case you’re wondering, yes Lucy did sell the bikini she was wearing to the German lady. They went to a surf shop and the lady bought Lucy another bikini to wear, Lucy went the restroom, cleaned her bikini and sold it to the German lady.
