Halto first started when Lerryn went shopping for a holiday bikini and found the golden unicorn of bikinis; beautiful fabric, gorgeous styling, in the sale AND in her size. The only thing that made her buxom heart sink was that it was a halter neck, and she has 32H boobs. That was not a happy combination. “Surely there must be something out there that solves this problem. I can’t be the only one that suffers with this!” she cried in despair at the unsuspecting bra-fitter. Undeterred, she bought the bikini (of course!) and set out on a fruitless search for a product that simply didn’t exist.
Cue a piece of old boot sole, a neoprene wetsuit glove and some impressive stitching, and the first Halto was ready to be flown to the Maldives for a road test. It worked like a dream, and so began five years of product development and sibling bonding as Lerryn (and her sister Lucy) took on the challenge of changing the way women choose and wear swimwear.
