This spring, Marysia launched their newest collection SWIMCLEAN, made from 100 percent recycled materials, while keeping their signature scalloped-edged style. Marysia has repurposed fabrics scraps that normally would go to waste to create this new collection.
Starting strong with nine sustainable styles in their SWIMCLEAN collection, Marysia is committed to making their entire brand from sustainable materials by 2022.
Everything But Water saw a void in the market: Many customers were unable to find trendy and flattering swimsuits that fit properly. So the brand decided to create their own. MAXSWIM comes in 25 different bra sizes, from 30C to 38G; all the straps are adjustable for whatever kind of support you need. Made in multiple textures, prints and silhouettes that are sure to flatter your figure.
Juillet is a brand I recently discovered and have fallen head over heels for. Their floral patterns and laid-back aesthetic will make you immediately start packing for your unplanned vacation. Little details like ruffled hems and slinky straps give each of their pieces a romantic and sweet twist.
Former Marie Claire fashion editor Brittany Kozerski created the ultimate minimalist swimwear brand, one that can take you from a luxury beach vacation to the city streets in a blink of an eye.

With their no-fuss silhouettes and Italian crafted fabrics, Jade Swim makes the most effortlessly cool swimwear you can wear anytime.
Oséree is the swimwear that's sure to turn heads. Take one look at their Instagram and you'll see why: From their signature glittering lurex fabric, to their crystal and pearl embellishments, Oséree is nothing short of a good time.

Almost all Eres pieces can be mixed and matched, so no matter the combination you'll be without a doubt the chicest gal on the beach.
