Reviewing the brand that champions a more sustainable approach to inclusive swimwear.
When I’ve worn a plunge bikini in the past, they’re great for sunbathing in, but not so great when it comes to support. There’s always a risk of the dreaded four-boob, and maybe some side-boob spillage, which ultimately, makes me feel uncomfortable because all I can think about is, God, I hope my boobs don’t fall out of this. That is until, I became familiar with We Are We Wear.
The swimwear brand, who are soon to be launching lingerie, offer size inclusive (from XS to 3XL) and sustainable styles, made from unwanted waste materials like fishing nets, industrial plastics and fabric scraps. The bikini I have is from their ECO edit, and not only fits amazingly, but makes me feel good while wearing it.
The fabric used includes 12% elastane, which means it’s super stretchy and great for really encompassing my bust to avoid any overspill. It’s also fully lined, contributing to the robustness of the bikini.
The underband doesn’t undo, so it’s important that you follow their size guides before purchasing. I’m a 32H and found a size L was perfect, any bigger and I would lose the support the band should give.
One feature I really love about this bikini are the tie shoulder straps. Not only are they a great idea for adjusting your straps, but they’re also a lovely design detail. Plus, if you do decide to tie them tight, therefore creating a more defined cleavage, the ties will hide any sign of pulling on your shoulders.
The high leg Brazilian bottoms are my summer favourites, and are great for mix and matching. I have them in a size M, although usually I’d wear a size L, but because of their stretch, We Are We Wear recommend going down a size. Plus, I feel the 80s high leg style is very on-trend at the moment.
As someone in their mid-twenties, it’s everything I’d want in a bikini – it’s sexy and chic, but classic and eco-conscious. Wearing it makes me feel both confident, and happy that I’m supporting a brand who are contributing towards sustainable fashion.
