It’s that time of the year again—things are heating up and I want to jump in the pool with Bear. Or go to France with my pals….whatever the occasion, we need swimsuits. If you’re in need of a new one, earth-friendly, sustainable bathing suits are the way to go. And the great news? There are finally some really amazing options out there.
I have been on the hunt for great-fitting, chic, and sustainable swimwear. These are my favorite picks.
1. Daughters of Summer
This rad swim brand’s fabrics are made from ECONYL® regenerated nylon made from rescued ocean materials including fishing nets and plastics (solid colors!) or recycled polyester from post-consumer materials such as plastic bottles (printed suits!)
Huge cheers to them!
Here are some of my favorites from this brand:
I love this one below…so excited about it!
I have this top and love it! And, I pair it with high-waisted bottoms seen below from Emroce.
Loving this dress…It’s a very fancy cover-up..I think I’m going to wear it as a dress, no pool or beach required.
2. Alon Swim
All of Alon’s fabrics are made from eco-friendly Reprieve, which is sourced from recycled plastic bottles and post-consumer materials. The suits are also handmade to minimize waste. I like this bright yellow number.
I love how focused on sustainability this zero waste swimwear brand is. Everything from using recycled paper for their patternmaking to using regenerated nylon yarns. So great.
Get it here.
Get it here.
I don’t love this top so much on me…but the bottoms I’m so excited about! Pairing with so many of my stray tops.
4. Vitamin A
Vitamin A also uses recycled fabrics- and ECONYL which is made from recycled plastic bottles. They are committed to sustainability from beginning to end of their production process.
NuSwim uses fabric that is made from 100% regenerated ocean waste, and also uses 100% organic cotton in the non-swim pieces.
6. Aro Swim
Aro uses deadstock and upcycled fabrics for their swimwear. The suit I got last year is sadly no longer on the site, but this one looks really chic. They are very keen on recycling and have implemented zero waste processes in their factories.
