Selena Gomez has designed empowering swimwear for her kidney transplant scar

Selena has got her designer ON for her best pal, Theresa Marie Mingus’ affordable swimwear brand, KRAHS Swim.

However, after having a life-saving kidney transplant last year, the design brief took on a new purpose and incorporates high waists and belts, for instance, which Selena says made her feel more comfortable with her post-surgery body.

As if Selena Gomez’s CV wasn’t full enough, Selena has added a new skill to her set. Aside from being an actress, singer, producer of Netflix’s 13 Reasons Why and a muse for many fashion brands including Coach, Selena is now a full-fledged fashion designer in her own right.

“I did have a really good time designing,” Selena said in a video to promote the swimwear line. “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 bond girl-inspired pieces range from approx. £55-£100 and not only does the line empower Selena’s body image, but it’s also a symbol of her friendship with Theresa, who she met 5 years ago.

In a moving post, Selena said: “She has taught me how to see life in a fun, carefree and uplifting way. She has shown me how to be a strong and fearless woman. She is beautiful, kind and smart. I saw how capable she was of achieving her dreams. I wanted nothing more than to see her pursue them and soar. And here you are making it happen T. I love you and I am so proud of you.”

We are so here for this, Selena Gomez.
