In the Beginning
Slix Swimwear was the creative expression of Deborah Teys, mum to four competitive swimmers. Deborah had three different girls' swimming bodies and a boy. She was sick of wasting money buying the "normal big brands" that where either ill fitting, ugly or chaffed where they shouldn't. In 1999, after discovering the need for beautiful, quality, great fitting training swimwear that would suit her different 'swimmers' body types she took matters into her own hands and started sewing the very first pair of Slix swimmers. Using her own children as test dummies, she worked tirelessly to please the fussiest of customers. After perfecting her swimwear designs they quickly gained a following and from this Slix was born.
Since sewing her first design in 1999 at her home in Sydney, Australia, Deborah has transformed Slix into a more than just another pair of swimmers. Slix helps girls and guys to look and feel good at training and stay active. Slix is about embracing our athletes and giving back to the swimming community.
