Meet Zanele Zicwele, founder of desire inducing Himeros Luxury Swimwear

Phemelo Ngcobo (standing in for Azania Mosaka) interviewed Zanele Zicwele, founder Himeros Luxury Swimwear.

Himeros Luxury Swimwear – named after the Greek god of sexual desire – offers, what it calls, “modern, classy and sophisticated, yet edgy, designs for the woman who is comfortable and confident in her own skin”.

Items are priced between R450 to R600.

Himeros Luxury Swimwear caters to women of all shapes and sizes who want to make a statement with their bathing suit – or wear it when they’re going out!

Himeros has three ranges:

  • Desire (for confident women who are unafraid to show some skin)

  • Bold (for women daring to be different)

  • Simplicity (comfortable, yet sexy)

We’ve been in the market for a year now.

Zanele Zicwele, founder Himeros Luxury Swimwear

We test our materials, because we don’t want the swimsuits to start sagging after a year.

Zanele Zicwele, founder Himeros Luxury Swimwear

Providing support is one of the biggest challenges we have. Our ‘Simplicity’ range is big on providing support.

Zanele Zicwele, founder Himeros Luxury Swimwear

We don’t use the word ‘size’. It’s about shape and about the mood you’re in.
