FM PICKS: 5 CONSCIOUS swimsuits
If you Can Only Choose
just one-Piece this summer...
we've got you covered!
Last weeks heatwave got us dreaming about Summer and ultimately one of the best things you can do when it’s hot: go swimming!
While we love bikinis, they’ve had a pretty long day in the sun, haven’t they? So now, it’s one-pieces who are getting a moment to shine as the beautiful and comfortable alternatives that they are.
We couldn’t resist finding you our favourite consciously made picks from small sustainable swimwear brands based in Europe – some of them even use recycled materials such as fishing nets!
We’re not gonna splash around the fact that these swimsuits are probably a touch pricier than you’re used to… but it’s worth remembering that these brands have taken the time to find new, innovative materials, produce in small quantities (which always costs more) and they make absolutely sure that everyone gets paid fairly.
Plus, you’ll get to channel your inner mermaid-come-beach-babe in every single one of these gorgeous costumes.
They’re worth every penny.
Grab your sunnies, let’s go!

allSisters is a Barcelona-based eco-friendly brand that uses recycled fabrics to produce their high-quality swimwear. By utilising recycled textiles that are OEKO-TEX certified, the company is guaranteeing that the materials have been tested for harmful substances and are made in environmentally friendly and socially responsible facilities.
