We're ALFA - a timeless, curve hugging swimwear brand based in Canada.

Founded by Calista Desousa in 2019, our focus has always been to make luxury pieces, sustainably and locally.

Our iconic and timeless styles are handcrafted by local female artisans and all our materials are sourced responsibly - so you never have to compromise.


Calista Desousa started ALFA out of her university dorm room with her mom's old sewing machine. After struggling to find timeless bikinis that were both sustainable and high quality, she decided to create a brand that offered both.

Calista created ALFA not only because she created a great product, but because she wanted women to feel comfortable in a bikini - and more importantly - in their own skin.

ALFA stands for community, inclusivity and sustainability.
