Kati Garnett, proud owner of swimwear line TIDE, talks to SimplySxy about her exercise regime to achieve that rocking bikini bod, her favourite body part and tips every lady should know when shopping for a bikini.

Hi Kati, thank you for taking the time to answer our questions on SimplySxy. Please share with us a little about yourself and where you’re from?

Hello! I was born in Atlanta, Georgia and moved over to Australia around the age of 7. I fell in love with the ocean, the beaches and the surf culture lifestyle and now I’m a well-known, Gold Coast bikini model/beach bum.


How did you get into modelling?

I was introduced into modeling by a leading swimwear brand, Moana Bikini. The owner had found me over social media and asked me if I would be interested in modeling for the brand. I became the face of the brand, which opened so many opportunities in the modeling industry.

You’ve created your own swimwear line, TIDE. What is the inspiration behind it?

The inspiration behind Tide’s first collection is Mother Nature. The Summer 2016 collection is called Pachamama, which means ‘Mother Earth’. All the colours and prints have all been inspired by natural elements and cultures around the world. I live in bikinis and I know what girls look for when they buy swimwear and this is exactly what I’ve made Tide Swimwear all about! Number one is comfort, number two is making sure you can provide to all body types and number three is feeling confident (Because you got this awesome bikini on)

Can you share some tips every lady should know when shopping for a bikini?

Nothings worse then buying a bikini that does not fit right! You’ll be pulling it up and checking yourself all the time! I think picking colours to suit your skin tone is very important. Also, make sure you pick the right cut and style to suit your body type!


How big is your bikini collection?

My collection is starting off small with six pieces that come in three solid colours and three prints.

What is your beauty and exercise regime like to looking so fabulous?

My beauty regime is simple – I don’t wear make up, salt water is all you need to keep your skin flawless, and zinc to protect me from the sun! As for exercise I enjoy doing yoga, Pilates and walks along the beach everyday with my puppy.

Which is your favourite body part?

Skin 😉


If you had the chance to learn anything in this world, what will it be?


It’s a great pleasure to feature you on on SimplySxy, Kati. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”? 

I think the sexiest thing in the world is natural beauty.
