Yvettes Vibe aka Yvettes Bikinis opened its door in the early 1970's in Huntington Beach, California then relocated to Seal Beach approximately 25 years ago. Originally specializing in D and DD Plus Swim wear only we have since expanded to included an awesome assortment of resort wear from Italy, trendy hip leggings, long skirts, sun dresses and summer tops that can also double as cover ups. Under new ownership since 2005, our online store was created in 2009. Nicknamed by Seal Beach Locals as "the bathing suit queen" that became the "easy to spell" "easy to remember" website name for Yvettes Bikinis. Since adding these various lines of Vacation Wear, Beach Wear, and Sandals we felt we needed our on-line name to better describe us. Over and over again we kept hearing our customers say how they love the vibe our retail store has. We kept hearing that it was their happy place to drop by and say hi on their morning walk, or in the evening for an after dinner stroll, or when walking the dog out to pop in and check out the new arrivals. (check out our Dogs of Seal Beach Blog, where each week we spotlight some of customers wearing some of our "favorites" along with their pets).
Our Mission Statement is to offer quality made "feel good" merchandise. We aim for American Made when possible, and natural fabrics as offten as possible in our clothing lines, and use the same standards when selecting our swim lines. It is so satisfying to literally see our customers "jump for joy" at how happy their new suit, or new item of clothing makes them feel. We kid you not! Jumping for joy is very common in our shop. When a DD Plus woman finds a Swim Top that fits correctly for the very first time, and is faltering and supportive, one that covers and feels great and is fashionable - she is a very happy camper. And our Store is our happy place. Its almost like playing dress up with our best friends when customers come in to shop. Many of our customers have been shopping Yvettes for for almost 50 years. And now their daughters and grand daughters are friends and customers. It is just awesome to be able to fit all three generations with a different flattering look for each.
Our staff is made up of a unique blend of age ranges and backgrounds, all "fashionistas" in their own right.
