BTS: South Africa Bikini Collection Shoot

Get excited, Mermaids, our South Africa bikini collection launch is just days away. And if you’ve been keeping up with our Instagram, then you know a little bit about the collection and why it’s so special (because it’s all about saving the rhinos). More on that later.

But before we launch, we wanted to give you a sneak peek of what it was like to shoot the collection and how much fun it was. Our super gorgeous babes, Tiffany Keller and Maggie Rawlins Douglas worked it with some direction for everyone’s favorite photog, Chris Shintani. Danni Katz dolled up the gals and Salty Mermaid, co-founder, Kara Versage was hanging around doing boss lady things and styling with help from the Salty Mermaid team.

While the girls made our South Africa bikinis look even more fabulous than they already are (because they’re some of the most flattering swimsuits around not to mention perf bikinis for curvy girls) and Shintani got crazy beautiful pics of them both, one of our ambassadors @tav_lo,  came to hang–she even brought her dog.

It was an awesome time filled with smiles, sexy bikinis, polaroids, pizza and even a funky green monkey. But don’t take our word for it. Check out these snaps.

Maggie, why you such a hottie with a killer bikini body?

Embellished bikinis, printed bikinis, sexy bikinis, cheeky bikinis, sexy one-pieces? Gang’s all here.

Tiffany Keller getting super silly with the cam in our Bohemian Queen Triangle Bikini. It’s the triangle bikini that every curvy girl, beach babe and poolside princess needs.

Werk, babe! She was giving us life in those cheeky bottoms.

What goes best with babes and bikinis? Pups! @tav_lo ‘s pooch was a star too.

Loving this halter style bikini top and these cheeky cutout bikini bottoms on Tiff. Heart eyes <3

Bikini babes for days…
