I can hardly contain my excitement for this post because I’ve teamed up with Summersalt, an up-and-coming, eco-friendly swimwear label!
Summersalt launched earlier this year, but that hasn’t stopped big-name publications like Glamour, Allure and Elle from raving about it. Committed to sustainability, Summersalt constructs its swimwear (as well as its poly mailers, accent labels, postcards, notecards and envelopes) from recycled materials.
“Since our fabrics are 5-times stronger and more durable than ordinary suits, we hope you will wear it for longer and recycle it when it’s time for something new,” Summersalt’s website reads.
“It’s an industry standard that each suit arrives in a poly bag to ensure freshness and sanitation. The poly bag that your Summersalt suit arrives in is completely recyclable, and we are actively looking for a vendor that makes them out of completely recycled materials…Our resealable pack is 100 percent recyclable and reusable…Use it for wet bathing suits when you travel.”
Last week, the label generously sent me a few pieces from their collection! Being so heavily invested in the fight against fast fashion, I could not be more thrilled to share my new goodies with Haute Mess readers just in time for summer.
Summersalt’s swimsuits are both comfortable and stylish without being overly revealing; they’re made for active beach goers who spend more time moving around than lying in a lounge chair.
“Our durable fabrics retain their shape to withstand even the grandest adventures and activities,” the site continues.
Not only do their swimsuits provide UPF 50+ protection, they are able to withstand the effects of sand, sweat and chlorine–aggressors that can wreak havoc on other swimsuits.
As their too-cute packaging states, the only thing more eco-friendly is skinny dipping. (Plus, nothing is over $95!)
The Cabana, $50
The Mesh Low Rider, $45
