Black-Owned Swimsuit Brands To Support
On the lookout for some new swimwear? From the pool to the beach, these black-owned businesses will make sure you are looking your best.
EgoSwim was founded by a group of friends who grew into sisters and started traveling the world together. Today, their mission is to “create a judgment-free zone for confident women, go-getters, the travel enthusiast, the bossy chick”. Their swimsuits feature the trendiest designs and the best quality fabrics to make sure you feel and look amazing.
Founded by former Wilhelmina model Chantel Davis, CASTAMIRA makes luxury swimwear that enhances the beauty and sensuality of your body. The brand is influenced by the 70’s and 90’s aesthetic with a variety of one-piece styles to flatter any figure.
“Asherah Swimwear is a brand that was created for the woman who exudes confidence,” states the website. Designed and constructed in Dallas, Texas, quality and technical skill goes into every piece of swimwear, and their signature gold emblem is hand sewn on each piece for uniqueness.
Avid Swim is a sustainable luxury swimwear brand based in New York City that adds a unique design aesthetic to swimwear by mixing bold graphic prints and creative cuts. Each collection includes interchangeable separates that can be worn as ready-to-wear, exuding the style elements of ‘Sexy, Sporty and Chic’.
Designer, entrepreneur, and Nigerian-American, Buki Ade is changing the fashion industry through her culturally inclusive designs. According to the website, she was inspired to start BFyne after searching for a unique swimsuit while on vacation; there she realized the industry lacked creativity and representation of African designers. With bold, stunning patters and innovative designs, BFyne ensures you stand out in all the right ways.
The XhaleSwim collection is designed to complement, flatter, and support a woman’s body. Whether you are looking for something bold and sexy or something a tad more modest, this swimwear line has you covered.
