There seems to be tons of sustainable swimwear brands popping up and I just LOVE it. I am thinking it maybe has something to do with all the fabulous beach lovers are sick of seeing plastic in their oceans, but whatever the reason let's PRAISE the lort.
From Mara Hoffman
Mara Hoffman was one of the first sustainable brands I stumbled upon last year when starting to look for new swimsuits.
The designer has the fun, quirky style that anyone could fall in love with. Here prints are always different and her combination of prints are out there in the best way. Like this cheetah and geometric print on my suit above.
She also has a beautiful collection of free flowing dresses and trousers that take your outfit from beach to street easily without missing a beat.
From Elle Evans
Elle Evans has a mixture of sporty solids and girly ruffles that are perfect for the beach or the resort.
Their suits are made from 100% recycled fabric and made in the land down under, where I am sure they know a thing or two about good swim wear.
Two friends set out to disrupt the fashion scene and they have done just that. Be sure to check out their active wear line as well.
From Swoom Swimwear
Based in Milwaukee, WI Swoon Swimwear is a small, local brand bring well made suits to us snow birds (well and everyone else...thank goodness for international shipping ;) )
They use the best materials and are made ethically in the US of A. Many of their suits are reversible as well making them the ultimate thing to pack for vacay, two suits for the space of one!
From Beth Richards
Based in Canada this swimwear line was started to help women feel empowered "one piece" at a time.
They are committed to using eco friendly textile which also have UVB protection against those harmful sun rays.
They use small batch production to ensure their standards are met with each piece and that over production doesn't happen.
From La Isla
This sustainable line has some of the most gorgeous styles and modern takes on swimwear.
It has gotten a reputation as the "sexy" sustainable swimwear line (say that three times fast) and has even been featured in Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition. How cool is that for the world of eco friendly fashion?
These suits are ethically and well made that will last a lifetime and their classic designs will also be instyle.
With these gorgeous brands there is no reason NOT to support these ethical companies while also supporting our ocean protection.
