Best Sustainable Swimwear Brands
Whether you’ve got a vacation abroad or a staycation at your local lido on the cards, here are our favourite sustainable and stylish swimwear brands so you can look good, do good, and feel good.
AllSisters is an eco-friendly swimwear brand to look effortlessly cool in (pun in both senses of the word) this summer. Think colourful, block-coloured luxury swimwear. Made in Barcelona, the products are certified by OEKO-TEX Made in Green and are manufactured locally to lower carbon emissions. It also uses many recycled materials and sustainable fabrics.
Marks and Spencer once again make it onto the list for its extremely affordable and sustainable swimwear. You can be sure to find something for everyone, with a range of styles across men, women and kids. It’s also especially great for anyone looking for swim tops that are specifically sized by number and bra size rather than S-XL. Marks and Spencer are known for producing long-lasting quality clothing, and using the best raw materials, is focused on using sustainable fabrics and recycling wherever possible — it does not waste any materials used in production.

Paper London produces timeless and fun swimwear for every body type (you can even pick which styles best suit your body shape with its filters) and is well worth the investment. From mix-and-match swim sets to trendy cut-out one-pieces, to frilly tankinis (sounds strange, looks amazing), the bright range of pieces here are definitely ones to look out for. All of Paper London’s swimwear is made from ECONYL, a 100% regenerated Nylon fibre made from recycled fishing nets and any waste products found floating around the ocean. This techno fabric provides protection against UV rays and sun cream. It is manufactured locally too, reducing carbon emissions.

Stay Wild swimwear is the brand making waves (again, pun intended) with its products. Based in London and founded by Natalie Glaze and Zanna Van Dijk, the brand makes classic, flattering swimwear using regenerated ocean plastics and limits wastewater in production through its local manufacturing. This is the swimwear you can stay cool and feel great in.
