From no job to instant success

 (1 minute read)

A dedicated year was well spent on the delicate positioning of the design, colour dyeing to individual fittings and material selections. There were many submitted variations of the design before final production could be started.

My Story 

One cool idea

It’s challenging to find the right partnerships for the production and one that well understood the designing complexity and purpose of the bikini. This was very important to me. My confidence in the product was evident from all the social media feedback and within 4 months of quitting my full time job, I packed my bags and relocated so that successful partnerships could surface. I involved myself in a new part time job and used whatever money I could save to fund the elements to growing my idea. The relocation helped because it meant that I could be there at every stage of the business to make it work. Along with the struggles, I completely entrenched myself in the business to ensure that I was the best skilled in my industry to give you what you need.

What started as a cool and wonderful idea had become a near 'must have obsession’.  Social media further fuelled my excitement for my project and they were just as crazy for the product as I was, it was so special! 

I'm so humbled by everyone’s support and so I raise this year to innovation, celebrity collaborations and to all of my valued customers.

Make it happen and take greater risks. With so much anticipation - Welcome to BUTTEENi where only stylish bathing suits can be found :)

BUTTEENi size guide


butteeni sizing guide

butteeni size chart



I am PETITE and I have smaller hips. I want an ultra tailored fit. I can also (easily) fit into a size 8 to get a more loose comfortable fit. High recommendation to choose size 8 if not petite size.

AU SIZE 8 (S) 

I have small hips. My size is definitely a size 6 or size 8 in bikini bottoms or pants size. I want a slightly comfortable stretch for my small hips. I am 2cm greater in total hip length compared to size 6. High recommendation to choose size 10 if you are still unsure about your size. 

AU SIZE 10 (M) Slightly smaller than your typical AU Size M

I have hips. I know I am a size M and after a few wears of my bikini, I will have a perfect snug fit. I prefer to have a tighter fit should I get my bikini wet. I am 4cm greater in total hip length compared to size 8. Recommendation to choose size L if you are still unsure.

AU SIZE 12 (L)

I have wider hips. We have you covered! I want a comfortable fit and slightly better coverage. I am 11cm greater in total hip length compared to size 10.


I have beautiful wonder hips. We have you covered! I am 6cm greater in total hip length compared to size 12.
