The Power of a Bikini - Building a Business and filming a documentary

June 08, 2018

In the winter of 2009, my parents, sister and I traveled to Cuba. It had been 49 years since my parents had been back to their homeland and my sister's and my first trip ever.

I could never have imagined how this trip would change my life - how it would shift my perspective personally and professionally and fill a void in my life that I felt ever since childhood.

This long overdue trip back to my parents homeland sparked an incredible journey and chain of events that lead to filming my Emmy Nominated documentary, Pastport Cuba.

Say What! A bikini designer with an Emmy nomination?!

Yup. That’s me! I can’t even believe it sometimes either!

I wanted to share what happened before, during and after the documentary was filmed and aired. We were only able to edit this film into 59 minutes from over 50 hours of footage...So as you can imagine a lot was left on the editing room floor.  

So I’ll be updating this section of the Blog throughout the next couple of weeks. I really hope you enjoy it and comment with support and love.

My intention for taking the time to document this is from a place or passion, pure Love and Inspiration.

From beginning to present day, this entire experience since filming the documentary and starting my company Nicolita has been full of what seemed like impossible hurdles and blossomed into life changing experiences.

I hope this inspires you to keep knocking down obstacles that come in the way of your BIG DREAM.

xoxo Besitos,

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. 

To add curves to a not so curvy bottom, check out:

Rumba Ruffles Forgiven Bottom

Signature Knotty Bottom


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.

For tummy control, check out:

Deep V One Piece With Shirring

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!
