TSM Ambassador Alex was the catalyst of this design. I asked him what he thought would be fun on a swim brief and he said "I want something that shows PRIDE and Arizona, I keep seeing a rainbow cactus!" At first I thought "Well, that's been done before, how do we do this differently?" I knew it would have to be a design with more depth, meaning, and symbolism than a cactus icon done in rainbow colors (no offence, Alex, lol).

I got to thinking about my several trips to Arizona that I have been fortunate enough to take in my life. Things that stood out were the heat, the sun, the blue sky, the mountain scenery, the bursts of colors from the lantana flowers and the ocotillo plant (both of which are some of my favorite plants of all time). I thought of the saguaro cacti in the Sonoran desert that I hiked in once with family members and as I did my mind drifted and remembered the cacti we had growing up in our home. For years we had two giant pots of them that would flower one or two big white flowers each year.

That gave me the idea to use the diversity that cacti have in shape, size and color and represent PRIDE within that. I wanted to create a design that clearly shows PRIDE but also could be a beautiful desert sunset or sunrise.  I excitedly sketched out this design that brings all of these memories and elements together and showed it to Alex. He loved it and "PRIDE Cact-Ass" was born (The name was coined by TSM Ambassador Keith on a hilarious group chat where we were all trying to think of names for these designs together).

Artist Madi Brown turned my sketch into the resulting, may I say, STUNNING digital image that we used on this swim brief. I think it is the perfect way to represent my memories and affection for cacti as well as Alex's original idea of a rainbow cactus and, of course, PRIDE!

Care Instructions

Care Instructions:

Remember the kinder you treat your premium swimwear, the longer it will last.

We recommend rinsing your swimwear in cool, clean water after each wearing. This will help prolong the life of your swimwear and ensure lotions, sprays, pool chemicals, and other contaminates are promptly removed.

Use mild detergent and hand wash in cold water when necessary. You may machine wash but do so on the delicate cycle and place your swimwear inside out, in a net bag, to prevent snagging or other marring of the finish.

It is NOT recommended to machine wash swimwear with metallic finishes.

Remember to always hang or lay flat to dry - DO NOT tumble dry.

Avoid sitting on rough surfaces as this can snag the fabric or ruin the finish. Place a towel on rough surfaces before sitting to prevent this.
