Miraclesuit Swimsuits are available in Popina’s Portland Swim Suit Boutique. Miracle Suit has gained many tried and true customers by providing a Swimsuit with a built in girdle to back up their slogan “Look 10 lbs Lighter in Just 10 Minutes”.
For some Miracle Suits seem miraculous. To many Miraclesuits are more than just a bathing suit. Anyone with any body “issues” will know that a bathing suit is much more than something to swim in and that a good one is priceless.
If you fall in the hard-to-fit category (which includes many) or just want a swimming suit that you can feel really great about, then Miracle Suit is definitely the a good line to check out. In Portland Miraclesuits can be tried on in person at our Swimwear Shop in NE Portland.

Her passion for the industry drew her to sunny California in 1997. With a vision of staying focused on the hipster fit that the L*Space customers love, the Collection exudes a fresh, directional and outright sexy style.
Constantly recreating itself, L*Space is a collection of swimsuits that’s uncomplicated and effortlessly hip.

Retro Swimwear Photos where taken prior to the awesome Back Fence PDXevent at Tour de Crape on June 19th. Back Fence PDX is an incredibly fun story telling event that occurs bi-monthly. Typically when I think of storytelling I think of bearded old men rocking on their front porch telling stories that make you say by-gosh. This is not Back Fence PDX, this event brings together a great variety of amateur, but mostly professional story tellers/writers who take turns telling very fresh, current stories. The hosts of this production Frayn and Melissa have very natural chemistry together, keeping the night moving forward, with a fun and smooth grace.
I have finally had a brief moment to post some of the Retro Swimwear pre-show shots - Popina Swim, Portland’s Bathing Suit Boutique participated in a half time Retro Swimsuit show, hopefully someone who attended can send those shots on to me - I would love to see them!

Chemical Free Sun Tan Lotion is featured at Popina Swim Portland’s Bathing Suit Boutique. All of the sun screens we offer are personally tested by Popina’s Designer, Pamela Levenson who has sensitive skin that is prone to rash in the sun. This discomfort has given Pamela the desire to seek out great chemical free tanning products that provide protection and are skin friendly. The additional benefit of our chemical free lotions is that they are great to use for your tropical trip for snorkeling or scuba diving, our products are safe for sensitive coral ecosystems.
Our featured sun screens are all made in the USA. Absolutely Natural, Badger Balm and Mexitan. We have the widest selection of chemical free sun tan lotions in Portland, Oregon!
