Hi there! :-) My name is Daniela and with me is Lucy, the love of my life! We currently live in Fremantle, Western Australia.

I'm from Brazil but I have been in Australia for about 20 years, even though I sound like I arrived yesterday, so don't be surprised if you find some weird grammar or spelling around!

I have a passion for the beach, warm weather, animals and via Made to be Free I have a mission:

♥ I want to break the stigma that to wear a Brazilian style bikini you must have a certain type of body or age. No! We are perfect the way we are, and it is all about how we hold our confident selves! ♥

In memory of my beautiful Zoe on the left - Lucy's twin sister who came to this world to brighten my life ♥♥♥ xx


We are all made to be free, to do things in our own time, to follow our hearts, to shine our own light.

We are like the shells at the beach, each one has a different shape, texture, size, colour, some have marks but every single one is simply beautiful and unique!

Here we own it all, we create our own trends, and we are free to be beautiful just the way we are.

So, remember, to have a hot bikini body, all you need is a bikini! xx


I hope you like our products, they're ethically handmade with love. This means that you will own a very unique piece that has been produced in small quantity so if you see something you love don't think twice and make sure you get hold of it as we may not re-stock. 

We are passionate about sustainability, so please make sure you read the 'Our Fabrics' section :-)

Thank you for being part of this journey and choosing Made to be Free.

Lots of love,

Dani and Lucy
