Size & Fit

Worn by Rebecca, who is 5'4 / 163cm and is wearing a size small. Fits true to size, with Italian sizing: initial fit should feel snug, as Yulex will loosen in the water and relax over time and wear.

Our pieces are designed around real women and with real sizing in mind. We celebarate how every woman's body varies in different ways, but this also means not all styles will fit every body type the same. If you have a larger bust or larger hips, we recommend sizing up. Feel free to reach out to us with any sizing questions.

Fabric & Care

Made with 2mm Yulex® natural rubber, a plant-based alternative to neoprene. The natural rubber is derived from sources that are Forest Stewardship Council® certified by the Rainforest Alliance, ensuring sustainability remains key in our production process. This lightweight and supremely-stretchy fabric, provides comfort and support when diving deep and dancing in the waves.

Always cold hand wash in fresh water, always air-dry, out of direct sunlight (never put it in a dryer).

Flattering high waist bottom for a flattering feminine touch with a performance essence. The fit conforms to the body for flexibility and comfort, with a soft seamless elasticised secure waistband and rare zip, keeping the shorts snug against the body. Made using Yulex, the sustainable plant-based alternative to neoprene, the bikini top has been designed with your ocean activity in mind.

Designer notes

"The engineered fit is designed to sculpt your silhouette and support for an action packed day in the water. Creating a flattering waist and leg line, that not only guarantees you an elegant look, but is also guaranteed to stay on in the swell. Coordinate this with one of our zip-front sports bikini crop tops to achieve this finished look of sustainability and stylish for the active woman in the water."
