Ethical & sustainable swimwear can be a challenge to find…especially size inclusive swimwear brands! Honestly, I think size inclusive swimwear plays a major role in redefining society’s messed up image of the perfect beach body. I’m always shocked at the amount of swimwear brands who only offer the classic bikini style swimsuit in sizes up to large or XL. Like what?....first of all the basic bikini style isn’t what everyone feels comfortable in....and second having more options in styles and sizes includes more people which is good all around! Anyway....there’s my rant for the day! And I made a list of 3 Swimsuit Brands with Ethical, Sustainable, & size inclusive values, so you should consider supporting these wonderful brands.
Dazey LA: Slow Fashion Swimwear
Dazey LA embraces slow fashion with small batch production pieces made in LA. Dazey LA uses dead-stock fabric and celebrates designs encouraging self love, feminism, and social good! Dazey LA swimsuits range from XS-XXL.
Lime Ricki: Swimwear Made in USA + Gives Back
Lime Ricki is doing a great job of spreading body positivity with their swimsuits ranging from XS-3XL. They carry a wide variety of styles allowing customers to find a flattering fit for their body type which I LOVE. Their swimwear is proudly sewn in the USA & gives back. A portion of each purchase goes to purchase goes to Charity Water, an organization that brings clean and safe drinking water to developing nations.
PrAna: Sustainable Swimwear
PrAna focuses on on fair trade, sustainability, and giving back as a men & women’s clothing brand. Their swimsuits specifically focus on using eco-conscious materials such as ECONYL ® Recycled Nylon. PrAna partners with local and international charities to give back. PrAna’s swimwear currently ranges from XS-XL. However, PrAna does carry clothing in sizes up to 3X, so hopefully their swimwear will expand to include these sizes soon.
