Behind the brand:
Mai Shoua Lee is the founder and owner of MAINLEE with a BFA in Fashion Design from Woodbury University, LA. After years of dreaming about starting her own apparel business and being blessed with three beautiful girls, there was no better time to make MAINLEE come to life. As a mom, she finds the most inspiration from bittersweet moments created with her bundles of joy. That also led her to the name that became most fitting for the brand, MAINLEE, since "main" spelled backwards means "mom" in Hmong, which is her nationality and first language.
Made and designed in Minnesota by locals who are paid a fair wage, MAINLEE is a children's swimwear brand with a clear vision of tasteful designs and custom prints created by artists around the world. It is perfect for the stylish little ones who enjoys soaking in the salty ocean breeze and summer heat, while staying protected in our UPF 50+ suits.
