Niki and Becca set out to change the world of swimming one backer at a time. They started with nothing more than a prototype, but by January of 2018, they successfully raised over $36,000 through crowdfunding so they could make their vision a reality.

As a former swimmer, Olympian and 4 time World Record holder I just wanted to say, I love this! My parka was my favourite clothing piece when I was on deck and I love that these young ladies are making something that looks awesome, and is super functional for girls.

Meet Wotter Cofounders Niki and Becca
Hi, we are Niki Vilas Boas and Becca Segal. We founded Wotter to validate and elevate the role of girls in competitive swimming. We are high school swimmers who believe that girls deserve to have choices in swim gear that reflect their personal style. We feel that being able to express ourselves by our choice in gear gives us confidence on deck and in the water. We wanted all female water athletes to have that choice. Stay tuned as we develop high performance, high style, confidence-building options for women and girls in water sports.
