Selena Gomez Designs a Bikini That Covers Her Kidney Transplant Scar and Makes Her 'Feel Comfortable'
By Amy Lee
Selena Gomez has designed the chicest swimwear pieces!
On Wednesday, Krahs Swim, a new brand by Gomez's bestie, Theresa Marie Mingus, announced she has collaborated with the line to create limited-edition pieces.
The capsule includes a red bikini with a high-waisted bottom that covers Gomez's kidney transplant scar, which she spoke about in an interview video with Mingus for Krahs Swim. She underwent the procedure in 2017 due to her lupus diagnosis.
"I did have a really good time designing," Gomez says in the video. "It was fun. The design I did, one of them, it was the high waisted one with the belt. I've had a kidney transplant and I like bathing suits that kind of cover where that's been and make me feel comfortable."
Gomez showed off the red hot bikini and a zip-up one-piece in two gorgeous photos posted on Krahs Swim's Instagram page.
Gomez credited Mingus for being by her side during difficult times.
"After working with you it's helped me understand not to take life too seriously," she said in the video. "I've grown up in a very difficult situation, so I felt like we bonded on that because we come from real places that, I don't know, I just didn't think that I could get through some of the hardest points in my life if it wasn't for you."
Krahs Swim, which is "shark" spelled backward, aims to create affordable swimwear for every type of woman. According to People, the brand, available in prices from $39.99 to $69.99, is expected to launch on Thursday.
"There's no one specific, but every woman wants to feel sexy," Mingus tells Gomez in the video on who she designs for. "Every woman wants to feel confident and beautiful. I definitely want to have a variety of different pieces so everyone can wear them."
