I'm pretty much obsessed with the TLC show Ashley Paige: Bikini or Bust. It's this reality show that follows bikini designer Ashley Paige as she tries to build her business and non-profit organization. Ashley's fairly well known as she's a favorite of many young Hollywood actresses such as Lindsay Lohan and Kate Hudson but because of her high production costs (all of her bikinis are knitted and hand made in her shop in LA) and lack of investors the girl can barely pay her rent. Yes, like many reality shows there are obvious set ups for entertainment purposes but for the most part it's an honest look at a small town girl trying to make it. Plus, she seems like a really down-to-earth, cheerful, regular girl who spends most of her time taking in stray dogs and helping them find loving forever homes through her non-profit organization. What's not to love about a girl like that?
As I was watching the show I decided to check out Ashley's official home page and found out that she actually happily does custom bikinis via her store and website! Can you imagine how great it must feel to know that not only does the bikini look exactly how you want it but it also perfectly fits your body? Prices aren't listed so I'm sure it's expensive but some luxuries are just worth it.
Check out her designs and the show!
