Draya Michele is serving up hot and sexy on her Instagram page. On Jan. 19, she uploaded a photo of herself standing on a beach wearing one of the swimsuits from her Mint Swim swimwear line. To complete the look, she wore her hair in a high fishtail braid and went for natural makeup.
As it’s still winter, it’s no surprise that Michele is asking her followers to “Take me somewhere tropical” so that she may continue to flaunt her Mint Swim bathing suits in the hot sun.
Michele captured the attention of both female and male followers, with one commenting, “I’ll book the flight now, just fine me the say so,” while another wrote, “Take me wherever u want 😍😍😍.”
The former “Basketball Wives” star received plenty of hearts, fire, and heart-eye emojis in her comments as compliments. But one fan preferred using his words to shower her with praises.
He wrote, “Gorgeous and very beautiful plus stunning totally flawless and your body looks amazing.”
Her photo left another fan almost speechless. The only word that he could find fitting to say was “Lawd.”
Michele started her swimwear company in 2011 and it began with an investment of $12,000 and “four styles of swimsuits, and from there things just grew via social media.” In a 2017 interview with Refinery29, the 35-year-old said she started the company for women who want “to feel sexy and enhance all the right curves while staying fashionable.”
She also revealed that if she runs out of a certain style that people like, she has the ability to create it again. She said, “I’m constantly designing and producing stuff, so when comes out, I’ll put it out. If Selena Gomez feels like wearing [our swimsuit], which has happened before, it’s going to sell out in probably 14 seconds. But I have the ability to make 3,000 more.”
Since starting her company and being on reality TV, Michele went from 2 million followers on Instagram to 8.2 million, and she also models clothing for other companies like Fashion Nova.
