This is a great swimsuit. The design flatters my body shape without feeling exposed or self-conscious and provides a little more cover if you feel the cold. It feels very comfortable on, and there is no rubbing or chafing at seams or edges. There is a thicker elastic at the thigh hem, which is tight enough for the material not to rise up but not too tight to constrict blood flow. The ‘x’ shaping on the back straps is designed for ease of movement around the back and shoulder blades and does just that. I was concerned when putting on or taking off that the straps wouldn’t hold up, but so far they seem very durable and have retained their stretch. The fabric is 78% regenerated polyamide, aka recycled polyester, and 100% of profits from the range will go to the SEA LIFE Trust to clean up ghost fishing nets. The material is also chlorine resistant and UPF50+.
▶Verdict: Eco-friendly, super comfortable and affordable swimwear.
▶Best for: Poolside to outside, for those who want slightly more cover.
