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.
“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
The tankini-style top features extra built-in support — be bold and pair it with your favourite bottoms! The Mercy bottoms are short enough to swim in, but not so short that you'll constantly be adjusting them.
To honour the nurses who inspired this design, 10% of the profits will support Mercy Ships.
