NEXT...

You've pressed the buy button - now what? (aside from a big cheer here!)

We do have some limited stock but most stuff at the start will be made to order - by us.

One

The fabric needs to relax overnight. It gets lots of stress while rolled up with creases etc. These slowly ease out overnight.

Two

We only cut the amount of fabric we need for the swimwear we're making on any given day. This means less waste and no stock piling up.

Three

Sewing the garment involves between 10-12 seperate steps - all done the old-fashioned way by hand (we do use actual sewing machines - not a needle and thread - we aren't totally crazy).

 

Four

We carefully package your swimsuit in a box that's intended to keep. If you live within London we can also ship via a green bike courier. Every little helps.

YOU'RE ONLY AS GOOD AS YOUR SWIMSUIT

OK. White lie. It's not all about the swimsuit but every little helps right? We've crammed as much as we can into this suit and hope you can feel the difference. We also think they look pretty good too - hopefully you think so too.

We love fancy infographics - instead here are some hand drawn ones we made earlier. Every element is something we've tried to cram into the suit from sustainability, design, community, engineering and also the secret sauce - us (and you).

 

When you feel awesome in your new swimmers it makes getting out of bed for those early morning training sessions all the easier. Bob Bowman - the coach of Michael Phelps had a favourite quote:

"Do not worry if you have built

your castles in the air.

They are where they should be. Now put

the foundations under them." 

 

We think there's something in that. We have a real drive to make great swimwear and help people get over their own Usual Objections. Putting the foundations down every day the old fashioned way with grit, determination, sweat and some tears.

ALL SHAPES AND SIZES

Right now we have 5 standard sizes based on an EU average. We know we're all different shapes and sizes and as we progress this suit will be available to fit more body types. If you try it on and it doesn't fit - let us know why and you could become one of our beta testers!
