Today we’d like to introduce you to Chloe Melanson.
Hi Chloe, it’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start maybe you can share some of your backstories with our readers?
Nothing makes me happier than taking a nap on the beach. My happiest moments and memories have been made somewhere by the water in a bikini.
As I got older and became more aware of society’s beauty standards, the thought of starting a swimwear line seemed impossible. I would pick apart my body and make every excuse under the sun why I couldn’t chase my dream.
I had the designs, the experience, and the passion but I let my figure determine my fate.
After a while, I got really tired of making excuses. I had been battling body dysmorphia and actively getting help with my ED when I finally decided it was time to embark on my own journey.
Rooted Swim began as a message to not live in fear. To stay grounded, be strong, stay true to yourself, and live your life. For me, my best and happiest moments are in a bikini and I want to use Rooted Swim as a way to encourage others to live without fear.
We are meant to do so much more than worry about what we look like.
