Summer is just around the corner and what’s more exciting than a day at the beach? Blue sea, white sand (that somehow always manages to get all over your suitcase). We thought we’d share with you a few swimwear ideas if you happen to be looking for a new swimsuit ! You’ll thank us later

HOLIDAY ROMANCE STORE

Holiday Romance Store is a UK based swimwear brand who values transparency and ethics in the making of their products. Their new collection has been entirely produced in the UK and they also give back a part of their income (1%) to organizations that protect the environment.

And they sell ..?

One and two pieces swimsuits with different shapes of bottoms and tops (bandeau, classic bra..). There is only one model with prints, the other ones are plain colored.

What are the products made of ?

Their products are all composed of Econyl, which is a recycled and recyclable fabric made out of discarded fish nets.

The style is simple, pretty and delicate - yet very modern. We are particularly into the ‘up the hips’ bottom model.

Our favorite piece?

The Pant Pebble bikini. We love the prints and the vintage look of it.

And the price range? $$

The prices start from £60. (more expensive than H&M obviously but affordable)

 

Bower swimwear

Bower Swimwear is a British brand that has been giving 5% of their income to sea and ocean protection organizations since March 2019. Their pieces are ethically made by a small factory based in Remini, Italy and all the hardware is made in France. Every piece is made to order, so that they can reduce waste to a minimum.

And they sell ..?

Both one and two pieces swimsuits, with different shapes, colors and prints. The style overall is very minimal, which we love.
