The idea for the anti chafing suit came after a summer spent at Wingaersheek beach in Gloucester, Massachusetts. Stephanie and her family had to cut beach days short due to chafing and skin abrasions her son ended up with due to surf and sand. The skin irritation was constant and made long days at the beach all but impossible.
Stephanie tried several solutions, cutting out the mesh of new suits, her son wore briefs under a suit, creams andgels for the chafed skin after the fact. Finally, she decided to solve the problem and stop chafing before it started. The Coastal Dog swim suit was born.
Stephanie, designed the suit, sourced the materials, and found local fabricators, as making the suit in the USA was important to her.
Coastal Dog suits are available online at:
And, in select stores.
Stephanie Magee, Founder and CEO of Coastal Dog, worked as a Preschool teacher as well as a Director of preschools which is where her start up and entrepreneurial skills formed. Much of her time was spent creating a school from the ground up and helping prospective parents share in the vision of the school to be.
One of Stephanie’s greatest passions is helping others and lending a hand to those in need. Coastal Dog is Stephanie’s way of helping families and children enjoy their time a the beach while also creating company which gives back to children’s charities.
