Established in 2021 by MTV star Juliette Porter, JMP The Label is a premier designer swimwear and apparel brand. JMP The Label boutique luxe collections reimagine swimwear for the independent babe on the go – from the beach to the bar, and beyond, each piece is thoughtfully designed to fit every woman. As a body-positive lifestyle brand, all women are kept in mind when creating the perfect look and feel. Precise fits and luxurious fabrics in a wide range of styles and silhouettes make JMP The Label effortlessly chic. With the perfect mix of casual and cool, the JMP vibe goes way beyond the beach or poolside hangs. Plus, with men and children’s swim, JMP The Label now lets everyone join in on the fun.
Swimwear can be an intimate exposure, which is why JMP The Label’s mission is to empower women to embrace their beauty. JMP The Label features inclusive models and leads important conversations around positive body image, women’s health and wellness, and normalizing beautiful and natural bodies of all sizes.
It is JMP the Label's commitment to continue looking for new and innovative ways to help the world and environment. The factories implement eco-friendly practices, like creating each piece utilizing upcycled and recycled materials. The upcycled or unused fabrics from other companies help the brand reduce its carbon footprint in lieu of producing new materials. The recycled fabrics are created with a blend of recycled nylon fibers, and are only utilized when the upcycled textiles do not suffice in terms of quantity or when they do not meet JMP The Label’s company standards for quality. A fabric upcycling program has also been implemented, where unused fabric scraps are used by local villagers to make other items, like bags and dolls, that they sell to further support the local villages of Bali.
JMP The Label has developed a compostable mailer (that composts in 180 days!) in which the brand sends its goods to you, made of a combination of biobased polymer and plant materials (like field corn and wheat straw) which makes it a low-impact resource. Inside, the packaging should not be thrown out; the reusable wet bags help store not only wet swimsuits but other items like your keys, phone, credit card or lip gloss all while avoiding the risk of ending up in a landfill!
JMP The Label and its founders are grounded in its ethical values and consistently educate themselves on protecting the environment from climate change and pollution. The brand cares passionately about creating a more sustainable future so that women everywhere can thrive confidently and feel their best, one JMP at a time.

THE STORY | ABOUT THE DESIGNERS
MTV's Siesta Key star, Juliette Porter, grew up in the gorgeous city of Sarasota, Florida. While enjoying the incredible beaches, Juliette always dreamed of creating the perfect fashionable swimsuit that not only looked good and fit well, but could also keep up with her active lifestyle. Juliette met veteran swimwear designer and swimwear factory owner, Jaymi Washburn while filming the show – the two instantly connected. They got to work on creating the magic: a swimsuit collection that embodied the definition of modern and sexy design while having the styling versatility to take the wearer from a day at the beach, waterskis, and boats to nights out at a dinner, bar, or dance party. Juliette's keen eye for trend, comfort and luxury was perfectly matched with Jaymi's ability to design a line that would appeal to many different women and provide a great fit and incredible detailing. Entrepreneur and former operations executive, David Kelleher joined as an additional co-founder lending his years of experience to develop the business model to launch the brand and position it for growth and impact in the swimwear market.
