Chifles Chips offers taste of Cuba at Miami Swimwear Fashion Week

Miami, Fla. (July 14, 2010) – Tampa-based Chifles Chips is offering
its organic, healthy snacks to VIPs attending the Nicolita swimwear
show during Miami Swimwear Fashion Week. Chifles plantain chips are
low in fat and use all natural, organic ingredients – the perfect
snack for fashion divas looking to show off their figures in one of
Nicolita’s Cuban-inspired bikinis.

“Chifles was inspired by the memories my husband and I had of the
tasty plantain snacks made by Cuban street vendors,” said Peggy
Argudo, President and CEO of Chifles. “Plantain chips are as iconic to
Cuba as beautiful women, warm ocean breezes and impassioned music.”

Made from just three ingredients – plantains, oil and salt – the
original Chifles plantain chips were first made in the Argudo’s
kitchen. Today, the family owned business, which operates in Tampa,
harvests organic plantains in Costa Rica, Ecuador and Guatemala. The
plantains’ skins are removed, and they are sliced lengthwise into
strips, sticks or rounds, and fried. They are then sprinkled with one
of several seasonings ranging from plain salt to Mojo Mama.

Although Chifles taste is authentic to its Cuban heritage, the company
looks to the future in methods and techniques. Recently, Chifles
plantain and cassava – or yucca – chips were certified organic by the
US Department of Agriculture. Chifles products also have zero trans
fats, are gluten free and are Orthodox Union kosher.

“Like Nicolita swimwear, we’re a blend of tradition and innovation,
and in the end, the customer gets quality,” said Argudo.

The Nicolita swimwear show will be Monday, July 19, at 7 p.m. at
Cabana Grande in Miami Beach. Nicolita Swimwear was established by
Nicole Di Rocco, who draws her inspiration from her family’s Cuban
roots and the 1940s era.

Fit Guide and Suggested Styles

Do you hate when your bikini bottoms dig into your hips? Have no fear, Nicolita NO PINCH FIT Cuban Style Bottoms are here!!

Hola! I'm Nicolita owner & designer Nicole Di Rocco. In this video I'll show you why and how we created our signature Nicolita Bottom fit.

Nicolita has one-of-kind swimwear styles that are carefully designed to flatter your figure. Say goodbye to those ill-fitting bikini bottoms and say hello to comfort and fit!

Below are a few of our most popular styles that were designed with YOUR hips in mind.

Welcome to the Nicolita Fitting Room!

I want to help you find the Perfect Fit Nicolita Style. Below I have created a Nicolita Swimwear Fit guide to match your curves with our swimwear options and styles. If you still have questions of which bikini or one piece style would look best with your body shape just Call 866-NICOLITA (866-642-6548)  Email hola@mynicolita, or Skype me @mynicolita.     

Over the last 13 years since I started Nicolita in 2003, I have worked with a lot of Nicolita clients on selecting the perfect swimsuit for them. I'm the first to admit that wearing a bikini or one piece swimsuit can be challenging for the majority of us. Even if you have a rockin' body, there are certain styles that work better on certain body shapes.

But I am a strong believer that there is the perfect swimsuit out there for you. And we have gone ahead and picked out some styles that are flattering for you!

Larger cup sizes (D cup and up)

Women with larger cup sizes are primarily looking for 2 things when trying on swimwear: coverage and support. While going up a size in the top can provide more coverage, some styles just won’t provide the coverage and support you may be looking for. Look for styles with side boning and molded cups to give you the support and coverage you desire, without the pinching of an underwire!

For support and coverage, check out:
Maria Knotty Wrap Twist Top

Molded Push Up Bikini Top


Smaller Bust

Have a smaller bust and want to create the illusion of a bigger chest? Styles with details like ruffles and molded cups will add volume and create cleavage!

For adding volume to a smaller chest, check out:

Haute Dot Bow Tie Bikini Tube Top

Rumba Ruffles Triangle Halter


Broad Shoulders

If you’re looking to tone down the appearance of broad shoulders, look for one-shoulder and detailed tops which will draw attention away from wide set shoulders. Deep V necklines will keep the attention focused on your chest and the low cut back will make your shoulders appear more narrow.

To elongate the torso, check out:

Rumba Ruffles One Shoulder Top

Neon Bloom Deep V One Piece


Not So Curvy

Looking to add more curve to that backside? Look for bottoms with backside details like ruffles, shirring, or our signature knotty bottom. These details add more curve to your bottom and create a more shapely bum.

Tummy Control

We all have those days we would rather cover our midsection. To conceal your midriff while flattering your other assets, look for styles that have shirring throughout the midsection to camouflage any insecurities.

Noche Cha Cha High-Waisted Bottoms


More Coverage Overall

Trying to keep your skin out of the sun, or just desire to be more covered? Look for styles that provide more coverage without sacrificing style, like high-neck tops, high-waist bottoms, and one pieces!
