Have you ever wondered if there is a difference between a designer and fast-fashion swimwear?
They might look the same, but they never are. With time, designer swimwear is able to hold up and resist fading or losing its shape as you wash it. However, you can say the opposite for fast fashion pieces.
Below we outline 5 reasons why designer swimsuits are more sustainable for you:
Designer swimsuits are made of top-quality material, and will therefore last you many seasons. This means you won’t constantly be throwing away and replacing last year’s swimsuit. In fact, you’re more likely to get tired of wearing the swimsuit than have it wear out on you. This is why it's important to invest your money into quality pieces that will last you a lifetime.
2. Timeless Design:
While designer swimwear follows seasonal trends, they are always created with timeless elements. This guarantees it never goes out of style and you can wear it year after year if you choose to.
For example, a black swimsuit has and always will be a classic. It gives you a slimming effect and has been around for decades. Adding elements to it such as a wrap detail or cheeky bottoms make it a timeless design with current trend elements.
Designer swimsuits are very well made. They include features such as thick lining, minute detailing, and strong hems and thread. This makes them more versatile than an average swimsuit.
You get more use out of them such as wearing them as a body suit or summer crop top. Since they are not see-through when stretched and made with durable fabric, it makes it hard to tell that it’s actually a swimsuit.
4. Holds Value:
Unlike other swimsuits, you won't need to throw them away after one season. They remain intact and look as good as the day you first bought them. Ensuring that you look after and follow the care instructions will help with this too.
5. Sustainable Businesses:
Many designers use sustainable recycled fabrics. Others use sustainable practices such as artisan-made or environmentally friendly.
Designers come up with innovative materials; from recycled bottles to discarded waste. Sustainable businesses also ensure that they are leaving a small carbon footprint. Being mindful of their emissions and not using a large amount of water in manufacturing are some examples.
In conclusion, for the reasons mentioned here, and many others, we at Sun Vixen Swimwear believe that designer swimwear is a far more sustainable choice than fast fashion swimsuits. It's made from some of the softest materials and the benefits amplify why we need sustainable swimwear brands.
Choosing to buy designer swimwear is a choice our planet will benefit from over the long run. Not only will you look great in a designer swimsuit, you'll feel amazing too.
