San Lorenzo Bikinis was founded in Lima, Peru. A young girl with an abundance of passion and love for the ocean, Lisseth Figueroa moved to Hawaii from Lima to attend college, trading one tropical home for another.
After moving to the islands, she soon realized that there was a noticeable gap in the market for her favorite South American swimwear cuts. An idea began to flourish, and soon with the help of her family back in Lima, San Lorenzo Bikinis would start production to bring the latest trends in swimwear to the islands, introducing Hawaii to the fused vibes of sol, praia, and aloha.
Together the Figueroa family has grown their business to manufacturing facilities in both Brazil and Peru. San Lorenzo Bikinis reached the Hawaiian Islands in 2002, and instantly became the go-to bikini shop. Starting with a humble storefront next to the University of Hawaii, in just 6 years San Lorenzo has grown to eight stores located on Oahu, Maui, and in Southern California.
