Allie Ayers, 24, who grew up in Snyder and graduated from Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Weatherford, launched her swimwear line at Packard’s in Oklahoma City earlier this summer.
She took the scenic way, if you will, to get to that moment but each stop – as a nanny, computer coder, struggling model, casting assistant and finally Sports Illustrated model — got her to where she is today. Bissy Swim is sold only on her website, bissyswim.com, as she moves forward slowly.
She offers four colors and four styles, two one-pieces and two two-pieces in sizes 0 to 26. Prices are in the $100 to $150 range. “I wanted to be able to offer something for everyone who came to me. Something flattering and sexy,” she said.
Prices are in the $100 to $150 range. “I don’t want it to be so expensive you only buy one suit and keep it forever.”
