About us

Mama Maria has been the premier Dutch fifties style swimwear label since 2002.
The swimwear from the “glamorous fifties” is classically higher in the waist and cut lower around the hips than was the fashion later on.
The innovative designs of Mama Maria are slightly less revealing than later fashions and therefore they allow women to feel comfortable and confident at the beach, whether in a swimming costume or bikini. Even if you don’t have a supermodel’s figure, you can still feel great!

All designs are limited edition and available in the finest contemporary materials. There’s a very, very  small chance to meet someone in the same costume at the beach!

Apart from Mama Maria’s web-store, there is also the option of trying out our designs at our studio in Amsterdam and having on-the-spot adjustments made at a personal fitting (plus sizes too). Also for breast-prothese, we can make a special cup in your bikini cup or bathing suit cup.

The sale of our designs goes Webshop Only: we have clients all over Europe and the US! We send firm packages with trusted shipment,  & tax free for countries out of the European Union!

The designer is Ruth Kenter (24 June 1974) who graduated with a degree in fashion design from the St. Joost Academy of Arts and lives and works in Amsterdam.
