The Best Ethical Swimwear Brands To See You Through Summer

Kira Simpson

It’s only spring in Australia and already Queensland is feeling the full blown force of the impending summer heat. I’m someone who prefers being too hot over too cold so summer is my BFF and I’m welcoming her with open arms.

Summer is usually synonymous with lazy days, refreshing beverages and beach hangs and the latter often requires a swimsuit. So if you’re in the market for a new kini or one-piece check out my favourite ethical swimwear brands.

These brands have a fantastic assortment of colours, prints and styles so you’re find something you love!

    The problem I find with any swimwear brand other than Speedo is that they fade and disintegrate very quickly in public swimming pools. Can you recommend a brand that can stand up to chlorine? And how does Speedo stack up in the ethics department? Cheers, D

    • Hi Donna-marie, that’s not great when you pay $100+ for a swimsuit. I haven;t swum in a pool in a long time so I’m not sure about the longevity of brands in chlorine. The best I can advise is rinse the swimmers every time you swim and to dry them in the shade. re Speedo. There’s not a lot about them ethics wise but the little I have found is that they don’t rate very highly https://guide.ethical.org.au/guide/browse/guide/?type=718. In saying that, I would always opt for longevity first when it comes to clothes but to help combat the human rights issues in the meantime, email the brand about your concerns. You can find some great email templates on Fashion Revolution’s site. x
