Our Story



In 2012, Malibu raised founder Francesca Aiello began her mission to create the perfect bikini after her mother encouraged her to have suits custom made. Soon she was creating bikinis for friends and gained even more momentum when she showcased her designs on Instagram. After creating two collections Francesca made her Miami Swim Week debut in 2014, making her the youngest designer ever to do so. Francesca's designs have been worn by supermodels and celebrities including Candice Swanepoel, Ireland Baldwin, and Kylie Jenner.

Friends don’t let friends wear average bikinis.

A message from founder Francesca Aiello:

"I've always been very picky about my bikinis, so I was going to Hawaii to get them custom-made, and my mom suggested I get a few for my friends while I was there. I'd give all of my friends bikinis, then they'd go home and post them on Instagram and that’s when Frankies Bikinis started. Now we are continuing our journey and working to make the perfect bikini even better. I know you will love your Frankies Bikini and can’t wait to see you sporting the suits!
