5 Swimsuit Lines That We’re Sweating

It’s getting hot out there – and we’re not talking about the weather.


After all of your healthy eating, hefty workouts and sunless tanning you’re ready to show off that stellar bod. Here are five eco-chic swimsuit lines that will have you looking and feeling fab.

Thrills & Frills

You’re sure to turn some heads this summer when strutting down the boardwalk in one of Emobi’s hot numbers. Using environmentally water-based dyes, these low-impact, earth-friendly swimsuits will have a major impact on those around you. Pieces like this one piece are quite frilling, don’t you think?

Into the Wild

Using vintage fabrics that she has collected over years of traveling, JungleGurl designer Natalie Golonka creates one-of-a-kind swimsuits made to bring out the lioness in you. Tribal patterns, animal prints and earth tones may emphasize the strength and nature of this eco-friendly line; that confidence in your walk and sway in your hips, however, is all you.

Salty Sweet

Lola is ravishing. Betty is revealing. And Liv is daring. No, we’re not talking about our BFFs–we’re talking about our favorite pieces from Salt Swimwear’s newest collection. Locally designed (in Santa Barbara), these handmade pieces are so scantily sweet, you practically get a tooth ache from looking at them.

Dare to Bare

Not for the timid, CurleeBikini takes vintage swimsuits and fabrics and repurposes them into like-new barely-there bikinis. All pieces from this local line are designed and produced in Los Angeles and are “handmade-to-order.” In addition to creating looks that will knock the pool boy’s socks off, CurleeBikini is currently working to partner up with earth and ocean-friendly groups like Surfrider Foundation USA, National Wildlife Federation, Heal the Bay and EarthShare.

Golden Ticket

Charlie can keep his golden ticket – we have Lolli Beach Candy’s oh-so-delicious one-piece! Made in Southern California, this local line puts the “teeny weeny” in that polka-dot bikini! Add some flavor to your day in the sun by slipping into their cookies and cream bottoms, or get a little cheeky in this sweet number.
