Our Story

Fun & Chic for Real Women. Exceptional Quality. Inspired by Travel.

Hi, I´m Maria Barciela and I am the founder of Bach Sisters, born in New Zealand in May 2020.

Let me tell you a bit of my story! I have always been involved in the travel industry – I Co-Founded a Boutique Travel Agency taking travellers from all over the world to South America. After Covid19 hit, I decided to start a new project – offering something that I always thought was missing in New Zealand: "stylish and happy swimwear" for "real women" - just like me - that balanced the perfect combination of comfort and charm, with exceptional quality.

 Our selection of suits is from the best Brazilian brands, where I enjoyed part of my teenage years, in Rio de Janeiro, and it's inspired by Travel. I have always been in love with Brazilian swimwear – so colourful and vibrant - but I thought about adapting their style to the beaches of New Zealand.

Our Mission

To build a diverse community of women who share the belief that womanhood is not about appearance; it’s about feeling beautiful in our own skin and connecting with ourselves by exploring the world.

We are doing this by bringing the happiest & most stylish beachwear - directly from Brazil to you.

Get in touch!

We are a 100% online business. However, we have a home-based showroom in Auckland, and we run Pop Up stores and Markets.

If you prefer to check our suits, try them on or let us help you decide what's best for you; get in touch to book an appointment or check our Pop ups.  If you prefer to pick online, we have a flexible exchange policy and we deliver free to all New Zealand.

Thanks for your support, Ladies!

xx - Maria.
