"Once you go Brazilian, you never go back" – this is the ethos behind UK based company Kinky Octopus, an all Brazilian swimwear and accessories brand born two years ago. The Brazilian bikinis specialist brand has a sole mission in this market: bring to UK reasonably priced, unique swimwear styles hailing from Rio de Janeiro beaches. The key to the worldwide success of Brazilian swimwear is in its shapes and vibrant colours. There’s just no better shape to flaunt your curves and achieve the perfect tan than when you’re wearing a Brazilian Bikini.
Since its launch in 2010, Kinky Octopus has experienced consistent sales growth in the UK, especially amongst girls from 16 to 25 years old with the biggest fanbase in the North of England - Liverpool. All bikinis are sourced from a small family run business, in Rio.
