Swimwear for Butches, Bois, Femmes & Otherwise-Identified
Its not officially summer yet but the sun is out and its time to hit the beach! Its time to hang out with your friends and stick your toes in the water.
But does summer time, pool parties and beach outings get you all unraveled because you're tired of not having something comfortable to wear while looking and feeling like your stud self? That's why we created Outplay.
Its been in the works for some time now, and after listening closely, we have come up with our first (of many more to come) styles of tops and bottoms for your summer time fun. So for all butches, bois, femmes, and otherwise-identified summer lovers, we've got you covered! We're introducing our basic pieces first and we will continue adding new styles and colors with time.
Lets start with tops.
Our first 2 pieces include the full coverage top and the mid-drift top. Both are offered with light compression or high compression.
High compression tops will have a very strong hold on your chest, acting similar a binder (but they are not binders as they are swimwear and stretch with your body). They will need a little maneuvering to get into, like a tight rash guard, but they fit comfortably around your chest and hold and tuck what needs to be. It moves with you and no one will ever notice you're wearing anything constraining.
Tops with light compression will hold back nipples and give you a semi-biding look, so if you've had top surgery or just have small breasts and all you need is that extra help to flatten them, or just want to keep everything in place, light compression is perfect for you. It feels like a well fitting sports bra.
This is our mid-drift with a light compression in a size S. We called it the Swimmee
This top covers just what you need covered, and holds everything in place, while still allowing for full movement. The neckline is high enough to cover any type of cleavage but is still low enough to feel as comfortable as a T-shit neckline.
If you're comfortable with a little more covered up, then basic top #2 is more your style; we call it the Flatsea. This swimwear top covers everything it needs to cover and holds in what needs to be held back. Neckline is high, similar to the mid-drift top, and armholes are high as well. In these shots, Haley is wearing a size M in low compression so it fits them a little loser and has less of a binding-like effect but still keeps everything where it should and covers what needs to be covered. Keep this in mind when deciding what size to order, its a personal choice.
Now lets take a look at the briefs.
Our first two choices are both in the matching spandex but differ in length. Waist bands are 1" wide and fall slightly above your hips, just like a pair of pants that are low-rise.
The short briefs which we call Tomboiers fit like short boxer briefs
Every piece is sold separately so you can mix and match color and sizes. Our first color selection will include a few basic colors and as we grow, we'll continue to add not only new styles and cuts, but of course, new color options as well.
Our first color options are Black, Grey, Navy, Red, & Outplay blue
