54 Best Sustainable Brands for Swim
All of these brands commit to a living wage/fair trade, or produce in a low risk region like the USA or EU (ethical production). Natural fibers are hard to come by in swim - Natasha Tonic (USA), which uses hemp, is the only brand I know of using natural fiber. The remaining brands use EcoNyl or Vita (nylon made from ocean waste), Repreve (made from plastic bottles, or PET), or Amni Soul Eco, a biodegradable polyamide fabric.
I realized after shopping 50+ sites that I don’t like when suits are grouped by whether they are one piece or two piece. That’s not how I shop!! So I organized them in a way that made sense to me. Apologies if you think it’s total chaos. :)
Sometimes your dream swimsuit is being made on the other side of the world! If this is the case, be aware that shipping & returns can be costly! Measure yourself & reach out to the company if you want a second opinion on what size to buy.
If you don’t know your size - get a tape measure (no excuses! They’re $3 at any drugstore!), take your measurements, and compare to the size chart. Almost every company has a size chart on the garment’s page, or at the bottom of the page. Message the company if you are between sizes or need help. :)
My tall girls - If you want to try a one piece, Summersalt offers a “long torso” filter. Basically they just show you the options with adjustable straps. You can also just look for adjustable straps. :)
My curvy girls - All these brands are also below! Check out Scampi (Sweden), Miss Janna (Sweden, love!!), Fae (Australia, for those who want to show some skin), ThredUP (USA - yes, it’s consignment but a lot of their swim is New With Tags), Deakin & Blue (UK), Koru Swimwear (USA), Ocean Positive (UK - I think just the rashies are inclusive), & Davy J’s (UK).
