Lagoa swimwear is a women’s swimwear brand that offers invisible zipper pockets to keep your valuables safe at the beach, pool party, or just out and about! The patent pending pocket swimsuits are designed by seasoned fashion wholesale representative, Lauren Carkhuff.  The inspiration for the swimwear line began in 2012 while she was living in Brazil.  “I found myself wanting to go in the ocean with all of my friends, but nervous to leave my keys, money, and credit card unattended on the beach. I searched everywhere and could not find a swimsuit that allowed me to carry my valuables with me while in the water,” says Carkhuff.
