Who Is Devin Brugman and What Is Her Relationship With Natasha Oakley?

With a flurry of her photos online showing off attributes that include a height of 5 feet 7 inches and a slim but curvaceous body with brown eyes and black hair, you would be forgiven if you think that Devin Brugman is nothing more than an Instagram model.

However, hidden behind that wide smile of hers is a business acumen that has helped her to expand her portfolio beyond her looks. While it can’t be disputed that her looks have had a major role in her success, it would be a disservice to not mention her hard work and determination that has enabled her to run a business and become much more than the average social media beauty. With a fashion blog and swimwear line on the side, Brugman is determined to let the world know that she has much more to offer than just poses in pictures.

What We Know About Her Early Years

Devin Brugman was born in the city of Oakland, California on Boxing Day, 1990. The caucasian lady grew up in a home where her parents, who she cites as her biggest role models, greatly influenced her. Her father is said to have an MBA and is a successful businessman while her mother was once a model. Brugman has attributed her love for style and fashion to her mother and her love of business to her father.

Around the time when she turned four years old, the family moved from Oakland to Maui, Hawaii, where she went on to spend most of her formative years. It was here that she met her friend and future business partner, Natasha Oakley, in 2009. It was also in Maui that the young girl developed her love for the outdoors and water.

Devin Brugman attended high school in Maui before moving to Los Angeles to attend Mount St. Mary’s College, where she studied Business. While in college, she slowly began her modeling career, incorporating what she learned in classes to launch her own business venture. To supplement her income, the aspiring model worked as a retailer at the Swedish clothing shop, WeSC. She credits the job for teaching her the ins and outs of the retail industry as well as the importance of customer service and people interactions.

Before gaining widespread fame, Devin Brugman kept herself busy by appearing in whatever modeling gig she could get her hands on. It helped that her parents were also quite supportive of her quest to enter the modeling world. Her career later took a quick turn for the better after she went vacationing with her best friend Natasha.

An exotic trip by all accounts, the duo uploaded photos of themselves in their bikinis on their respective Instagram pages, gaining a lot of followers because of it. It didn’t take long before fashion houses and modeling agencies caught sight of the duo’s photos as one modeling agency got in contact with them and sent a professional photographer for a photo shoot.

Together with best friend Natasha, Devin Brugman has been counting her successes over the years. With her status as a popular fashion icon, she has been able to work with several famous fashion brands like BikBok, Guess, Missguided UK, Vix Swimwear, Beach Riot, and Wildfox among many others.

The Friendship Between Devin Brugman and Natasha Oakley Has Evolved Over the Years

Devin Brugman and Natasha Oakley have a relationship that has stood the test of time. After starting out as two friends who just liked to have fun together, the duo catapulted themselves into fashion stardom after sharing pictures of themselves in bikinis on their Instagram pages.

In 2012, they co-founded a blog called A Bikini A Day. It started innocently enough as a blog where they could share pictures of different swimsuits every day. After attaining their success in the modeling industry, Brugman and Oakley decided to partner together and start a business venture. In 2014, they launched their own swimwear brand called Monday Active Swimwear.

According to the brand’s official site, the name was inspired by the notion that wearing a bikini on a Monday while off work, school, or on vacation, means the day is going to be great. The line of swimwear is designed for ladies in search of minimalistic, confident, and carefree styles. Following the success of that venture, the pair founded Monday Active, a line of women’s workout clothes designed for comfort and mobility.

Devin Brugman and Natasha Oakley’s longtime blog, A Bikini A Day, has since been rebranded to be called The Swim Report in 2018. The blog has evolved from just featuring bikini pictures a day to having updates on their business, health, fashion tips, and more. Thanks to the success it has enjoyed, The Swim Report has been featured in magazines like Cosmopolitan and Harper’s Bazaar.
