When you find yourself daydreaming about water-side weekends spent in nothing but a two piece, it's safe to say you're craving summer. Stocking up on new swimsuits is a universally satisfying way of officially welcoming in a new season of beach days and poolside chats and happy sighs.  To help really get you in that #Wethairdontcare zone, we've compiled 7 of our favorite swimwear brands featuring playful prints and sexy, carefree cuts. Best part? All these beauties are ethically made, so you can feel a little better about blowing your paycheck.


1.) Bikyni

Featuring sleek, effortless styles at accessible price points, Bikyni works directly with their fabric mill, and all products are made in the U.S. 


2.) Vitamin A

Timeless summer styles that fit like a glove, the Vitamin A sells swimwear you'll quite literally want to live in. Committed to sustainability, the brand is ethically manufactured with its exclusive jersey fabric, EcoLuxTM, which uses recycled nylon fiber to conserve resources and extend the life of each product.

3.) Shoshanna

Shoshanna is a great one-stop online shop for all-things fashion, but their swim line is really a standout category. Featuring versatile options and classic prints, the high-quality suits are all made in the U.S., and the brand's founder is dedicated to philanthropic efforts.


4.) Swoon Swimwear

Swoon's dreamy prints and sporty cuts are all ethically-made in the United States using sustainably-sourced materials. I especially love that lots of their styles (including the one pictured here) are reversible, which makes packing light easy peasy. 

5.) LeLesso

LaLesso is an eco, ethical and sustainable swimwear brand whose designs support fair-trade production facilities in Cape Town and Kenya. Inspired by the striking vibrancy of African aesthetics, LaLesso employs hundreds of local artisans.

6.) Agua Clara

Agua Clara offers unique, sultry swimwear for the stylishly adventurous. If you're looking for a show-stopping vacation suit, you may very well find it here. All designs are fairly made in Peru.

7.) Elle Evans

The cheery designs of Elle Evans are also helping reduce waste in a major way. Every item the brand manufactures is made using either recycled lycra, or materials discarded by larger companies that would otherwise end up in landfills. All that, and they're really stinkin' cute.
