It’s that time again…to stock up on swimwear for Summer! It will be here quick…don’t we all know it? Or maybe it’s that time to embark on a warm vacation somewhere to escape this winter cold. Either way, shopping for the perfect swimsuit can sometimes be like shopping for your new favorite pair of jeans. There are so many fits, colors and styles that flatter different body types, or maybe you just aren’t sure what kind of look you’re going for. If I could help direct you to quality swimwear that won’t break the bank and is also friendly towards the environment, read on! I’m excited to see one of my favorite brands, American Eagle Outfitters and their sister brand Aerie, have got you covered with new sustainable swimwear.
The new Real Good™ Swim collection from Aerie features several super cute bikini styles with both high and low rises for whatever coverage you need, as well as two one pieces that look just as cool. All bikini styles come in a huge variety of different colors and prints (there are 30 different styles to choose from), and everything is made to fit a diverse range of body shapes and sizes. The best part though, is the fabric that makes up this collection is made with REPREVE® recycled fibers from plastic bottles. REPREVE® also supplies other sustainable-aimed brands such as Patagonia (I wrote about their sustainable swimwear line last year, as well as their sustainable denim), The North Face and Polartec. I’ve had a few bikinis from Aerie over the years and I’m always impressed with their quality! Better quality equals less in our landfills as well.
Here are several sustainable swimwear pieces from Aerie’s new Real Good™ Swim collection!
