OMG Miami Swimwear
OMG Miami Swimwear was established in 2010 by 26 years old, miami native, Andrea Gaviria. Andrea created the company after being fed up by not being able to find a bikini that fit her well. She decided to take matters into her own hands and make a swimsuit herself, later posting it on social media. The response from her friends and followers were overwhelming and voila! OMG Miami swimwear was born.
Andrea opened the doors to OMG in an exclusive Miami Beach store front in 2016. Over the years the brand has expanded, not only selling swimwear but as well as apparel and accessories.
The variety of styles and colors of swimwear are endless in this boutique. Omg Swimwear’s super sexy cover ups and suits are sure to make you stand out on the beach.
