Sustainable Beachwear Brands For Summer

Sustainable Beachwear Brands For Summer

Summer is coming (thankfully!) which means its time to start planning our summer wardrobe. For some of us this involves the tricky task of find the perfect swimsuit, a task that most women dread.

Finding swimwear that is flattering from all angles, looks like it did online, lifts, supports and conceals in all the right places sometimes seems like an impossible task. The worst thing is the swimsuits that made you feel like a million dollars last year don't always have the same effect this time round, which makes the search of the perfect bikini or swimsuit seemingly endless. Add that on top of looking for brands that eco-conscious and the search becomes even tougher!

Luckily with more brands taking note of the rising demand for eco-conscious clothing, that also make women feel confident and beautiful our swimwear prayers may have been answered. So, below are a number of ethical swimwear brands that you may just fall in love with.

1. Vitamin A

You know you see some swimwear and you get instantly want everything... well you fall into that trap with Vitamin A. The thing about Vitamina A that makes it one of my favourites is that you could easily mistake it as being a new luxury brand, this is because they have made sustainability sexy and beach ready, which is great because it means that you can look amazing on the beach whilst also knowing your wearing swimwear that doesn't good for mother nature too.

2. Vege Threads

'We care about the world we live in and as such we try and thread lightly, keeping things simple and made local' This is one of the first thing you see when you go on Vege Threads website so you know that they are no nonsense when it comes to sustainability practices.

Jets Swimwear believes in the philosophy that swimwear should enhance every woman's natural curves to create the most flattering silhouette.
