About Us

We are a mother and daughter team who share so many similarities in the swim world and in our daily lives. We both swam in our first swim meet at the age of 7. To Rae’s credit, her first swim meet was long course 50 meters. I was an Illinois State qualifier for many years in the late 60’s and 70s. Rae made it much further with her swim career, she continued swimming until her junior year in college. Our combined total years swimming in competition is 25 and time spent around a pool comes close to 70 years. Swimming has been a major part of both of our lives and it will continue as we keep swimming as part of our daily exercise.

The nickname Raebabes came about 22 years ago when Rae began swimming in Oviedo, FL. With a marker we would write Raebabes on her back along with a few dolphins to support her team. Still to this day I call her my Raebabes.


We are very excited to share our swim caps with you! Whether you swim competitively or recreationally, we have swim caps for your daily workouts and swim events. We hope you enjoy wearing our caps as much as we enjoyed creating them for you. Have Fun and Dive in with Personality.
