Selena Gomez Designed a Special High-Waist Bikini to Cover Her Kidney Transplant Scar


Selena Gomez is a lot of things—actress, singer, Coach ambassador and one of the top-followed people on Instagram. Now the multi-hyphenate can add swimwear designer to her ever-growing list. On Thursday, the actress’s longtime pal Theresa Mingus debuted her new swimwear Krahs with a few pieces designed by Selena herself, including one with a very special meaning.

Gomez who underwent a quiet kidney transplant surgery in 2016 designed a high-waisted red bikini bottom with a belt to cover her scar. “I did have a really good time designing,” Gomez said in a video of her and Mingus explaining their collaboration. “It was fun. The design I did, one of them, it was the high-waisted one with the belt. I’ve had a kidney transplant and I like bathing suits that kind of cover where that’s been and make me feel comfortable.”

The Selena x Krahs capsule collection features five two-piece sets, all of which were created with front clasps, shark-bite detailing, and range from red to neon and a black and white print. A standout from the collection is the scarlet high-waisted one-piece that’s pretty much business in the front and all party in the back. It features a zipper that zips up to a high neck, cut-out detailing, and according to the site, can be worn “as a swimsuit or as a top paired with skirts, jeans long & short.”

Priced between $40-70, Mingus explained that her mission was to create a line that was accessible for every woman. “Every woman wants to feel sexy. Every woman wants to feel confident and beautiful,” Theresa said. “I definitely want to have a variety of different pieces so everyone can wear them.”
