Fira X Wear Lets You Cosplay In Your Swimsuit
CutiepieSensei has launched a line of cosplay swimsuits inspired by her costumes that are fierce and fabulous, and we’re excited to partner with them!
CutiepieSensei is an amazingly talented cosplayer and businesswoman. She has turned her passion for pop culture into a thriving business. From her beginnings as a cosplay artist, she has evolved into a new venture. Jasmine has recently launched Fira X Wear with her partner Vincent. It’s a line of cosplay-inspired garments and swimwear. We have been eagerly awaiting the release of these. This week, we’re taking a look at the new cosplay swimsuit line from FiraxWear!
“The idea for Fira X Wear was sparked on a pandemic walk in the park between founders Vincent and Jasmine. When they wanted to get away on a vacation to Mexico, Vincent thought it would be a great idea to mix cosplay with swimwear. Jasmine made ‘beach episode’ designs of her favorite characters to test the appeal on social media. After trolls online commented on how swimwear couldn’t be cosplay, the two decided to build a brand based on the idea to prove the naysayers wrong while keeping ethical working conditions and sustainability in mind. While the designs can be utilized for cosplay, the main focus was to create a Premium Pop Culture brand.”

Why Fira X Wear?
Fira X Wear was founded to connect pop culture with fashion on a deeper level. They wanted to create pieces that can be appreciated by members of the cosplay and nerd communities, but at the same time be desirable to everyone. Their pieces can be worn for both cosplay and regular occasions.
Along their journey into this venture, they discovered the detrimental effects of ‘fast fashion’ and wanted to do their best to offset that with the brand. It was imperative for them to find a manufacturing partner with ethical working conditions and a manufacturing process with sustainability as a priority. For more information on this, please visit the Fira X Wear FAQ page.
Let’s be honest- swimsuit culture can be really stressful these days. Most fast fashion brands offer a limited range of sizes and shapes. Brands that accommodate for plus sizes are pretty minimal. And even fewer of them feel sexy and practical at the same time. What’s exciting about the Fira X Wear line to me is that you KNOW from the start it’s meant to be inclusive. Their range of models showcase the versatility of the designs, and I personally have a hard time picking- because so many of the styles are FABULOUS.
Why I’m Excited
The colors are bright and fun, the details are thoughtful and playful. It’s really nice to see a line that nods to cosplay and lis great for the beach or pool. And even better- those of us who are chesty will be contained by the cut of these cosplay swimsuits. That’s a hard combination to find out in the wild!
