Maison du Maillot: The House of Swim

I was recently invited to view the latest collection of online beachwear boutique, Maison du Maillot. I met Fifi, one of the owners, at her home where the viewing was, and got talking to her about the brand and how it was started.

Maison du Maillot {pronounced mayzo du mayo } is an online swimwear house started this year in March, by sisters Leila Faiz and Fifi Fakhroo. Having lived in LA and London the two sisters moved to Bahrain 3 years ago. They struggled to find fashionable swimsuits here even though they saw beaches and glamorously-dressed women everywhere. So they decided to bring a host of designer swimwear brands from all over the world to Bahrain, as well as ship them to the rest of the world, through 

The name Maison du Maillot translates to 'House of Swim'. And it completely is. I checked out the collection at their home and it was beeeyoootiful. They have all kinds of swimwear including bikinis {Bahrain so lacks in gorgeous two-pieces!}, gorgeous maxi dresses, kaftans and other beach cover-ups.

A few of my favorites:


What I really liked about this brand is that it's handled by Leila and Fifi themselves, and they really think about what their customers need. They take into consideration not just the looks of the swimwear, but also that it should fit different shapes and sizes of women, and it should last. They've also made sure their online shop has great features like worldwide delivery, free returns, delivery the very next day for GCC countries, and if required, private home shopping by appointment for those in Bahrain. What's more, 1% of all their sales go to a charity dedicated to providing clean water to the poorest of communities. So if you purchase from them you not only get gorgeous stuff delivered to your home, you're also doing your bit for the community. Fantastic!

Their website is, or click HERE. Happy shopping!
