Ayla Swim About Us PageAyla

We all know that carefree holiday feeling, when we're the best version of ourselves and time just slips away. One more drink turns into a three rounds of margaritas; a final dip in the sea turns into a midnight swim. Ayla was made with those days in mind.

We wanted to create beachwear that takes the stress out of packing and give women the confidence to throw themselves into whatever adventure comes their way. With super-soft fabrics (that are eco-friendly too) our bikinis are both comfortable and flattering. They come in a range of bespoke prints, with a range of cuts that can be mixed and matched according to your personal style, your destination or even your mood. We get that a good outfit can make a day that bit better, so we’ve designed a range of essential resort wear pieces that transform swimwear into a statement look.

The Founders

More often than not, a holiday with Ayla’s founders involves a beach. For part-Trinidadian Kirsty Ames it’s the Caribbean; for Heidi Sommerau – who grew up in Hong Kong – it’s the secret shores of the Philippines. When Kirsty and Heidi travel they dive head-first into a destination, and their favourite days are ones that merge seamlessly with the night. Ayla has been created for women who, like them, have an insatiable appetite for new experiences, opportunities and good times.

Our Suppliers

To create our swim and resort wear we work with two small boutique factories based in Bali. These factories allow us to be flexible with our order sizes to avoid wasting stock. We have a close relationship with our suppliers so we get the quality we need to ensure our products see you through lots of sunny days.
