The Mercy swimsuit was inspired by not just one woman, but a group of them. They supported Nettle's Tale from the beginning, pooling their money to buy a custom design during our viral crowdfunding campaign. They were volunteering on Mercy Ships, delivering free health care to developing countries, so they wanted a suit that was modest and respectful. They also wanted it to work for co-workers of all shapes and sizes. The Mercy bottoms are short enough to swim in, but not so short that you'll constantly be adjusting them.
“Working on a hospital ship that goes around the world, you’re making contact with diverse cultures; sensitivity to each country’s values is really important. And we wanted an option for anyone who works for this organization – now or ten years from now.” --Nicole, Nadine, Amy, and Jesikka
