Our Story

Brighdie Grounds and Dorothy Day, co-creators and founders of Dos Gardenias, have a long history together both professionally and personally: Brighdie as an international fashion model, Dorothy as a designer and together as co-creators of fashion and lifestyle magazine, SALT.

In 2017, inspired by their travels around the world and their lifetime of experience in fashion, these two beachcombers set out to create a chic swimwear line that would stand alone in the swim market. Dos Gardenias fits like no other swimsuit; attention is given to every detail from implementing shelf bras to creating innovative hardware exclusive to the brand.

The DG woman is unapologetic and adventurous, dressing to celebrate her shape and personal style. Dos Gardenias designs are sold as separates so women may have the ability to purchase versatile silhouettes which best complement their body type.

The 2019 collection focuses on a jewel-toned palette with matching monochromatic hardware. Produced in Los Angeles, CA and made with luxury fabrics from France & Italy and Yamamoto neoprene from Japan, Dos Gardenias merges chic, classic and edgy into one designer swimsuit.

Dos Gardenias is not just a swimwear brand. Brighdie and Dorothy seek to empower women and create awareness of our imprint on the world through knowledge, action, and philanthropy. By combining their resources with aligned charitable incentives, they’re blazing a path for progress.

With a flagship store now open since July 2019 in Malibu, CA and a fully sustainable 2020 collection, the horizon is looking bright and the DG evolution certain.
