Raising Wild Swimsuits: Rachelle Hyde and Kara Haught are the two fun-loving sisters who were raised in Florida and lived in bathing suits growing up. “We wore bathing suits for birthdays, Easter, summer break and even Christmas,” they say on their Raising Wild Swimsuit clothing line website. The sisters, who are now mothers of four children each, are pitching their business on Shark Tank.
While potential investor Barbara Corcoran “is moved by the tenacity of the two sisters,” Corcoran doesn’t have a great history with swimsuit companies. (Corcoran invested in Mix Bikini, the swimsuit company that blew her $50,000 investment in one night on a lavish party in New York City.) While the chances of Raising Wild getting an investment are slim, the company is taking advantage of the Shark Tank network by partnering with Freshly Picked, the baby moccasin company that appeared on Shark Tank in 2014. (Freshly Picked made a deal with Daymond John but the deal fell through). It looks like a good fit (see photo below). Shark Tank airs Fridays at 9pm on ABC.
