About Trunkettes

Trunkettes was founded in 2008 by Hilary Genga as the first swimwear company to offer a complete line of swim trunks for women- because sexy doesn’t need to be uncomfortable! The line has expanded to include bikinis, one pieces and cover-ups, as well as swim trunks for women in all lengths and styles. Trunkettes is designed to be hip and stylish with a bit more coverage for comfort and confidence. We believe that all women should have choices when it comes to swimwear and be able to enjoy family time at the beach or the pool worry-free!

Trunkettes Swimwear is currently featured on the 2016 cover of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.  Also Trunkettes has been featured on The TODAY Show, The Talk,
Entertainment Tonight, Extra, as well as in US Weekly, The Huffington Post, HuffPost Celebrity, Business News Daily, Celebrity Style Guide, Coolspotters, InTouch, The Chicago Tribune, Glamour, The New York Post, Newsday, The Tampa Tribune, Style, OceanDrive and Genlux, among other notable press outlets.

 Trunkettes  has been included in the coveted Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue eight
 times, beating out upwards of 10,000 submissions each time to make it the
 ultimate placement for premiering the season’s new swimwear.
Trunkettes applauded Sports Illustrated for featuring a size 14-16 models in 2016 saying,
“Empowering women with choices, feeling beautiful and finding your own self-
confidence is what the Trunkettes brand is all about. We love the choice of
acceptance SI has made in featuring more realistic models this year and hope that it
marks a move in this direction for the industry.”

An impressive list of celebrities wearing Trunkettes have popularized the brand,
including Carrie Underwood, Carmen Electra, Felicity Huffman, Kathy Lee Gifford,
Perrey Reeves, Julie Bowen, Hannah Davis, Gretchen Rossi, and the lovely ladies on
The Talk. The diverse Trunkettes clientele represents the variety of styles offered-
from a full range of alternative swim trunks for women to string bikinis and cover-
ups.
