Paige's Sustainable Swimwear

Dana Lou Fit uses fabric scraps in future products and they do not throw anything away. Most of the fabrics are produced in an eco-friendly way, including not using dying techniques that use water and cause water pollution. You can purchase leggings made with a printed fabric from an incredible photo Tristine Davis took of a coral reef and a portion of the sales are donated to reef/ocean conservation.

All of Koru's swimwear is made from ECONYL, a recycled nylon yarn. This special fabric is made from discarded fishing nets pulled out of our precious ocean. Not only does Koru use fabric from recycled plastic but it also gives back as member of the 1% for the Planet Organization.

Lagoa Swimwear donates 10% of profits to ocean conservation and the Surfrider Foundation. You will also receive your swimsuits in eco-friendly packaging; which is recyclable, recycled, biodegradable, reusable and renewable.

Luminous Sol Swimwear is made of recycled polyamide. The fabric is made …

Summer Starts with Eve 7 Swimwear

Oh summer, how I've missed you! It's finally starting to feel like summer and I kicked it off with one of my favorite swimsuit brands, Eve 7. They have the most beautiful, custom designed specialty swimwear out of California. My newest reversible bikini, designed by a California surfer girl, was perfect for surfing and playing volleyball in the pool.

One of the things I think you will love the most about Eve 7 is that they are true to their word. When your swimwear arrives, it always fits and feels fantastic! It is a company of great people who are funny, inspiring, hard-working, smart and sweet. My bikinis came wrapped in leopard print tissue with a note that put a smile on my face. Eve 7 supports all kinds of women and shares positive vibes constantly. I'm proud to share that all of their swimwear is made in the U.S.A.! The suits are super-soft (made of Nylon and Spandex) and come with care instructions attached. It's always a good idea to make sure your suits last…

Get To The Water!

"We don't live to work and pay bills. Get to the Water!" When I saw this posted on Instagram, it struck home and I knew it was a brand meant for me. Get to the Water was founded to promote the love for water.

The company is always posting fun sayings and inspiration with other's having fun in the water. After making my order for this premium racer-back tank top, I even got an email from the "President of Fun." I like the way my tank is light weight and feels comfortable on. It's made of cotton and polyester. But mostly, I like the conversations it sparks about water sports and much more when people ask, "What does your tank top mean?" There are shirts for men and women, along with performance wear. There are 3 light-weight, long sleeve shirts to choose from that have sun protection of UPF 50 and quick drying fabric. My tank even came with a cool decal.

Whether you prefer saltwater, freshwater, lakes or rivers, you'll be sure to fit in w…

The Trifena Belle Collection

A lovely woman named Trifena part owns one of the first brands I got to know when I started Instagram. We've both learned a lot and supported each other along the way. I'm honored to be wearing one of her bikinis and I'm so happy to share her cute styles. You can find the sexy yet classy Trifena Belle swimsuits as part of her brand called Jomie Bikini.

Each piece of the beautiful Trifena Belle Collection is ethically hand-made in Bali. That means it is not from a factory and artisans are treated fairly. They also pay local prices so, customer cost is kept low. Each piece is only $20 and they are all reversible. You can't go wrong with that and they are totally worth it! The fabric is soft, luxurious and sparkles in the sun. They also fit well with the size chart being true to size. I chose the sliding triangle top seen here and a fixed triangle top to wear another time. They are both adjustable. I really like how the sliding triangle top is easily adjusted with just a…

Making Waves with Sundaze

When my beautiful sister-in-law got this awesome bikini I was very impressed. I applaud her cute style choice and her stunning confidence. Doesn't she look great, all smiles, in her Sundaze bikini?

It's called "Ocean Blue" and I just love the wave-print. It is also reversible to solid aqua. This top is truly great for any body type and any type watersport. The size chart is accurate because the top fits her nicely and doesn't strain her neck. It also has SPF protection and won't fade/stretch easily. There are so many cute prints to choose from too; from palm trees to flowers to pineapples!

Sundaze is an ecofriendly brand. The swimsuits are made out of lycra, which is formed from plastic and abandoned fishnets pulled from the ocean. Another reason why Sundaze and my sister-in-law are this week's "swimwear inspiration." Sundaze bikinis are helping the Earth and the Sundaze gang helps with local beach clean-ups and events in Hawaii (where the biki…

Angelic Dotti

After a long day spreading our wings at sea, we can be prepared to pull the boat up to a dock or restaurant in a Dotti cover-up. It's nice to have a cover-up that will make you feel beautiful after being out in the sun all day and Dotti does just that with it's elegant designs. Pictured here is one that makes me feel like an angel from the 2018 Missy collection. White is classy, simple and pure. Plus, it easily matches any swimsuit. The pretty lace detail of the top and design on the end of the sleeves caught my eye. It's the type of cover-up I can also wear as a dress. It's a little see-through due to the fabric (which is great to show a little of my swimsuit) but if I decide to wear it shopping or to work, I can put a tank top and leggings under it. It also slides right over your head for a quick and easy way to get yourself covered before going anywhere. I really enjoy dresses with long-sleeves so, wearing this new cover-up was heaven to me.

BEST. SWIMSUIT. EVER.

When one of my friends told me he had heard about a company that let's you put a picture of your dog on your swimsuit (and knew it would be right up my alley of course), I went straight to my lap top and began searching for it. It didn't take long as the crowd-funding buzz had started to make it's way around the internet. I found the website and had a look for myself. This fabulous company is from Australia and called Petflair. Am I the only one who goes straight to the "about us" section or do you do that too? It helped me to see that this was a company I wanted to support because not only is it a great story with a unique idea but Petflair donates 25% of it's profits to Pound Paws (a charity for abandoned pets.)

I decided I needed to find out more about the making of swimsuits with our pets. These babies are $99, which is reasonable, especially for a customized suit with your dog! However, I was concerned with their Australian sizing because one of the mos…
