Budgy Smuggler makes a splash for LIVIN


There’s nothing more Australian than hitting the pool in summer with a bunch of mates in a pair of grouse Budgy smugglers – and that’s exactly what we did at the annual 2018 Budgy Smuggler competition for Australia’s Most Ordinary Rig. This year’s event was a sight to behold with Australia’s top 10 Most Ordinary Rig’s competing for the illustrious title at the poolside gala event.  The event was created by the team at Budgy Smuggler with the aim of taking the focus away from the stereotypical version of a summer body which puts a huge amount of pressure on young people, both male and female.  Australia’s Most Ordinary Rig embraces what summer in Australia is truly about - fun, sun, friends and a comfy pair of cossies. Budgy Smuggler has taken their swimwear to a new level with creative design (anyone for some pink pineapple prints?) through to the dam right hilarious - we’re talking Karl Stefanovic’s face on your budgies.  Aside from their all-Australian design, manufacturing and awesome attitude towards fun in the sun, Budgy Smuggler has been responsible for contributing over $20,000 towards mental health initiative’s and organisations and in 2018, LIVIN was the proud recipient of a percentage of this year’s takings at their biggest and most publicised event, Australia’s Most Ordinary Rig. With $5 from each ticket sale generously donated to our organization in addition to acknowledging and promoting our message that #ItAintWeakToSpeak throughout their event, is something we are truly grateful for and thank the incredible crew at Budgy Smuggler. LIVIN Ambassador Renee Gartner was there at the Gala event held at the Ivy in Sydney to receive the cheque for $2,500 on our behalf.  Renee was also lucky enough to be on stage for the announcement of the winner of Australia’s Most Ordinary Rig, South Australian legend Sean Dixon. Big Up’s to all those who attended and competed in this great Ozzie event and here’s to kicking off 2018 in a shcmick pair of Smugglers.
