Sustainable Swimwear Tops

Sustainable swimwear is making waves beyond style, offering up sleek silhouettes while supporting a greener future. Eco-friendly fabrics like regenerated nylon cut waste and reduce oil use.

Look for fair trade and ethical production to support workers and reduce distribution footprints. Recycled materials are another sustainable option, especially when they’re sourced from ocean waste like discarded fishing nets.

Away That Day

Known for their sustainable swimwear tops, this eco-conscious brand uses Repreve fabric, made from recycled bottles. This material reduces the need for new petroleum and cuts greenhouse gases. Their collection is also sourced from a fair-trade factory.

Founded by Carly Warson and Stephanie Korn, this Australian brand creates flattering bikinis and one-pieces for women with larger busts. Their ethos is focused on sustainability and the environment, producing their garments on-demand to avoid overstocking and waste. In addition to this, they plant a tree with every order online, making them a great choice for those wanting to do their bit for the planet.

This sustainable label takes their commitment to environmental responsibility seriously, with all of their swimwear made from recycled materials sourced from discarded fishing nets and ocean plastic waste. In addition to this, they use sustainable manufacturing practices and recycle all their paper clothing labels and packaging. Their mix and match pieces are crafted from eco-aware fabrics, including bespoke organic cotton and Econyl. They also donate a percentage of profits to environmental and social projects that they care about.


The UK-based sustainable fashion brand makes all their bikini tops in-house, giving them full control over their ethical supply chain. Choose from triangle, longline and faux wrap styles in mulberry red or black – with custom sizing available.

All LYCRA used by the brand is reclaimed from luxury swimwear industry deaadstock, reducing waste. They also design around core fabrics that are ‘evergreen’, so any excess materials can be worked into future seasons, rather than being discarded.

This eco-friendly swimwear brand uses GOTS organic cotton and certified recycled polyester, with a low-to-zero water footprint. They even recycle the boxes and polybags they use! Their warehouse in Leicester has a zero-to-landfill policy, LED lighting and grey water for flushing the toilets. They also use carbon-neutral shipping and send all purchases in biodegradable bags. Sizes range from XS to XL.

Carve Designs

Carve Designs is a women’s clothing company that was started by two friends with real bodies and a passion for river and surf adventures. They believe that activewear should be as feminine and inspiring as the women who wear it, so they have built their brand to reflect this. Their clothes are made from sustainable materials like Coconut Balsa, which is a fast-drying fabric that’s made from discarded coconut husks and recycled plastic bottles; FlyWeight, another lightweight fabric that’s sourced from repurposed plastic bottles; and organic cotton, organic corduroy and recycled denim for shorts and bottoms, along with recycled swim fabric for their one-pieces and tankini tops. Plus, they’re committed to giving back and work with SheJumps and the Send It Foundation to encourage women and girls to get outdoors and have fun in the water!

Most of their styles are made in the US. However, they also work with select production facilities overseas to ensure the workers are treated well and get a fair wage.

Hunza G has become one of the most talked about swimwear brands, with it counting influencers and celebrities like Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Hailey Bieber, Dua Lipa and Kim Kardashian as devoted fans of its sculpting seersucker fabric. The British brand — founded in the ’80s by designer Peter Meadows and famously worn by Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman — was relaunched in 2015 under Creative Director Georgiana Huddart, who brought an entirely new collection of It girl-approved silhouettes.

The brand’s heritage crinkle stretch fabric is still the core of its offering, but it’s been updated with an entirely new look that marries modern nostalgia and a fundamental focus on sustainability. Each suit is knitted and dyed in the UK, cut and sewn at a central London studio with patterns that optimize fabric use and are size inclusive to minimise waste.
