We are sister's and mother's. We developed a better bathing suit that PREVENTS CHAFING after years of watching our son's and husband's suffer.

Tell us about your business.

We decided to start this swimwear business after our sister lost it all. Sue was diagnosed with MS and lost her job ,marriage and her house. We looked for a way to help her and the economy. That is how NoNetz came to be. Our design has an anti chafe, anti-bacterial, UPF 50+ liner that keeps guys comfortable and rash free. No Nets. Zero rash. Plus, our bathing suits are hand cut and made in Brooklyn,NY. We’re very excited to have launched several line's of Anti Chafe swim wear. We have our 3rd boys line coming up in a week and also have a Men's line. Our swimwear is perfect for the texture sensitive and has been embraced by the Autistic Community. One of our line's was named after an Autistic boy named Alex. This 3rd line is being named in a contest by our customer's. We are looking forward to providing a great product and hope to move into rash guards and other apparel very soon. We hope to earn your support for our brand!

What makes your business stand out?

We are a unique kind of guys swimwear. The original anti chafe swimwear. There is no other design that has our Anti bacterial, soft, comfy leg liner. The fabric dries very quickly and feels great against the skin. We are also unique in that we are made in the USA, which is 3x more expensive .We wanted to help the economy so we kept it here!

What's the best business advice you've received?

Don't expect things to go your way ,so that when they do you can savor the moments! Also, relationships are key, be nice and it comes back to you in a big way!
