Stylish One Piece Swimsuits
Classic one-piece swimsuits are a mainstay of any wardrobe. Especially when the weather, or life in general, is unpredictable. We also wear ours as a top under wrapover skirts or denim cut offs. The humble one piece easily becomes the core of a great outfit. And looking at how good the latest designs are, it will be hard to stick to wearing them only at the beach.
Jade Swim uses responsibly sourced organic, recycled and regenerated materials wherever possible. Their one piece styles are impeccably cut and only available in solid colours. The majority of the collection is made from ECONYL fibre which is made out of 100% regenerated nylon. This reduces waste from oceans and landfills by recycling items such as ghost fishing nets, plastic bottles and fabric scraps. You can be sure there are no hazardous chemicals used in dyeing the fabric too as they have Oeko-Tex certified & Azo tested fabrics. Jade Swim cuts all swimwear styles in house and works with local trim vendors as much as possible to reduce CO2 emissions.
Ganni is the it-girl brand delivering stylish swimwear each season. This ruched printed one-piece swimsuit is made using a recycled fabric, featuring a gathered sweetheart neckline and bralette-style spaghetti straps. It is made of 78% certified recycled polyester: Polyester is a great waterproof fabric, but using recycled polyester reduces dependence on petroleum as a raw material and can divert plastic from ending in landfills. We love this curve flattering swimsuit, which will make your sunkissed skin really pop. Ganni’s Responsible pieces are part of their ongoing commitment to push their brand towards sustainability in a big way.
Fisch is famous for offering well cut swimwear that wouldn’t look out of place on the beaches of St Tropez. The Rajalin style especially has dramatic yet effortless look. Featuring a high modulus stretch, the fabric is designed to enhance curves and remodel the silhouette with a firm and flattering fit. And considering they do this using 65% Econyl® fibre, we are big fans! Launched in 2017, FISCH was one of the first brands to use ECONYL ®. Indeed, its entire collection is made from this amazing regenerated material. Each piece is handmade in Italy from fabric woven in Lombardy, to ensure the highest quality possible while helping to minimize our carbon footprint.

Sustainable fabrics pioneer Stella McCartney delivers when it comes to ethical swimwear thats also uber cool. We love this sensual second-skin khaki one piece, which could totally double as an elegant evening top too. Stella “fuses the functionality and style of lingerie and swimwear”, designing quick-drying pieces that shape the body. In addition they are zero-waste because they use a sculpting yarn created with ROICA™️ Eco-Smart™️ fibres and Econyl® regenerated nylon. The good news is it’s also UV-tested and chlorine and saltwater safe. The unique perforations under the bust and at the waist are placed in order to define and flatter the figure: too sophisticated not to transition to ready-to-wear.
