A.Lekay’s Body-Positive Postpartum Bikinis Encourage Us All To Rock What We’ve Got — And They’re Simply Gorgeous

A former teen mom-turned-designer is swiftly going viral this week, thanks to her body-positive postpartum swimwear line Allusions by A.Lekay, and the empowering story behind its inspiration. As she tells Bustle, it was back in 2013 when Altrichia Lekay (who goes by A.Lekay) found herself caught in that never-ending search we all know far too well: finding the ever-elusive “perfect” bathing suit. She only had a few requirements — something high-waisted enough to hide a pregnancy scar on her belly and something cute enough to rock on the beach with confidence. But when she couldn’t find a single one that fit the bill, A.Lekay took matters into her own hands and made her own bathing suit. Like a total boss.
