Since 2011, Chamorrita Swimwear has been the first bikini line on Guam, one of the Mariana Islands in Micronesia. The cheeky line takes the bikini back to its beginnings in 1946 with French inventor Louis Réard and the Bikini Atoll in the Marshall Islands. The bold two-piece swimsuit was coined “the bomb” after its first “drop” and promotion as “smaller than the world’s smallest bathing suit.” The collection is locally designed with lots of love—using quality fabric, delicately crafted with natural tropical elements like coconut and mother of pearl shells, and perfectly tailored to feature the natural beauties of our island.

Anastasia Ashley, a professional surfer, model and blogger, was selected for the LYCRA® Challenge. The challenge is all about how well swimwear with LYCRA® XTRA LIFE™ fiber performs. Anastasia lives an active lifestyle, so it was perfectly fitting for her to take the challenge. The journey started in San Clemente, Calif., her hometown, where she loves to surf. Wearing TYR and Vitamin A swimwear with LYCRA® XTRA LIFE™ fiber, we put Anastasia through many challenges, from stretching to yoga, running, skateboarding, and surfing. The next phase took place at Staniel Cay Island in the Bahamas, where Anastasia went through other challenges, from swimming with the pigs, paddle boarding, and deep ocean dives to learning how well swimwear with LYCRA® XTRA LIFE™ fiber was performing while conducting all these activities.
