Each season the same sweet troubles – how and where to find the perfect piece of swimsuit that will be both comfy and stylish. We did a little research and found some adorable pieces that will make you stand out in the crowd, but in the waves too. Let’s get started!

Bathing Belle

Bananas, pineapples, burgers and donuts all over you? Oh yes it’s all there to make you different printed on unique pieces that George Brown grad Danica Salajko designs every day. Her brand offers swimwear for the whole family and it is handmade by the designer herself. Danica is in the business since she was only 14, helping her mom in making custom swimwear. Learning through the years and exploring the fashion market made her widely recognized designer. Today, many customers come back to Bathing Belle for more playful prints and cuts, that set Danica apart from other designers!  

Bathing Belle Swimwear was launched in the summer of 2009 and since then is doing incredible business with buyers all over the state and abroad. Salajko even makes special needs swimsuits upon request.   

Beth Richards Swimwear

Canadian brand founded as a result of personal quest of a designer Beth Richards. After leaving her native Toronto and moving to Vancouver she dicovered that the beach wardrobe market was so poor she needed to do something about it. Listening to women’s needs she started developing her own brand that got immediate good feedback. Beth puts fashion aside making sure everyone feels comfortable in their own skin wearing her pieces. She says: As you know, swimwear evokes many emotions in us. It's that time of year when you maybe haven't reached the health goals you were hoping for, or had a baby, have a scar from a traumatic accident. These are all issues I have been privy to and help my clients overcome. 

For all of you who prefer simple elegant cuts with a bit of architectural style you will love this brand. All garments provide 50+ UVB protection and are ethically made.

Posers get ready! You will love Shan if you love beeing seen in editorial-worthy swimwear. The brand specializes in high-end pieces making impeccable final result.

Head designer Chantal Levesque, together with 125 craftspeople makes this brand one of a kind combining exclusive raw materials and cooperating with Italian suppliers. Every collection is designed and made locally before distribution all over the world. What will make you fall in love with each piece is it’s flawless handmade production that reflects exclusivity and originality.

Saltwater Collective

This brand is here to remind us all that the oceans matter!

Did you know that only 4% of the oceans are unaffected by human activity?

The rest of it, sadly, are endangered by climate change, dramatic over-fishing and intense pollution.

Everything is manufactured locally in Toronto using fabrics that are environmentally-friendly. So, by buying their swimwear, know that you will be supporting a better way of living.
