MAUI, HAWAII — Letarte is honored with the great distinction of being featured on the coveted cover of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2013 … again!

The ‘white haute’ bikini bottom, worn by supermodel Kate Upton, is just one of many Letarte swimsuits worn in sand-to-snow S.I. photo shoot in chilly Antarctica.

“The cover of S.I. is the highest accolade fora  swim designer,” explains Co-Founder Michele Letarte Ross. “It is such a privilege to see our swimsuit on Kate Upton across newsstands around the world.”

Not only is this Kate Upton’s second consecutive year on the cover, this is the second time that Letarte has been chosen for the cover image of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit.
In 2005, Carolyn Murphy was pictured searching Letarte’s red beaded side bikini. For the past 13 years, Letarte’s unique designs and silhouettes have been selected for the sought-after S.I. photo shoots.

The 2013 sporty white mech tie-side bottom is part of Lisa Cabrinha’s kite surf capsule with perforated textures and mesh overlays.

The ‘white haute’ mesh triangle bikini and other featured items are available for pre-order at ww.letarteswimwear.com.
