The urge to have a much-needed beach holiday — whether in a far-flung destination or closer to home — is stronger than ever. One way to look, feel, and do good during it? Wearing sustainable swimwear that flatters your body. With size inclusivity and sustainability being major themes this year, buying the right swimsuit that has been sourced and produced ethically is a must.
Brands have been recycling post-consumer waste like fishing nets and plastic bottles and turning them into Econyl, a new material that’s being used in swimwear. As for the size, options have increased with pieces ranging from monochrome, to fun prints, and cut out designs. There are plenty of choices to mix and match as well (such as the bikini bottom from Mara Hoffman), and pieces that would add a pop of color to your summer wardrobe (Evarae). If modesty is what you prefer while still keeping up with the trends, the bodysuits from Chromat, Azyä and the swim headscarf from Adidas would be the right pick.
Being comfortable and feeling confident in what you wear is key. Scroll through for our edit of sustainable swimwear for all shapes and sizes.
