• Gyv Me Body was founded in 2014 in North Hollywood

  • After years of traveling abroad & designing for other companies, we were inspired to create beautiful swimwear for everyday men and women who enjoy luxury travel.  Gyv Me Body was born with the understanding that Real Women have natural or enhanced Curves. Gyv Me Body does not wish to hide the essence of women, but wishes to celebrate them with flattering fits, fabrication and styling. The swimwear offers support that builds a feeling of confidence, sexiness and style.

  • Our lead team consists of Designer, Nyki Allen, Production Manager Gabriella Gonzalez, Fashion Show Coordinator Dietra Walker.

  • The Queendom has Three Boss Chics creating magic.

  • A Midwest native, designer, Nyki credits her grandmother for teaching her how to sew; giving her freedom to express her creativity through clothing.  She’s worked with clients such as the Artist formerly known as Prince, Nasty Gals, Urban Outfitters, Nordstrom’s, Baby Phat, Dickies to name a few.

  • Gyv Me Body is currently located Los Angeles and expanding.

  • Unlike most of our competitors, we proudly produce in the US.  We believe in providing employment for local creators.  Most styles are offered in sizes S-3X.  Many of our suits have built in structure to support our clients.  We also offer customizing options to our specialty clients.  Our fabrication is a mixture of High Multi Chiffons, Nylons, Spandex that provide 4-way stretch and control.

" My biggest battle with the Gyv Me Body brand is that I cater to most sizes. In my industry, they do not want to see full figured models on the runway. If they allow you to showcase on plus sized models, they will limit the number of models or how they look or even what they wear. Then there’s another group in the fashion industry that only wants you to show plus sizes. My brand is all inclusive. I will not separate the models and I want them all on my runway and catalog. It’s a battle, but I will not stop the fight."
