Few categories feel as difficult to shop for as swimwear, and when sustainability is a factor, it seems all the more challenging, right? Wrong! Eco-friendly fashion is more popular than ever from clothing to accessories, and yes, even bathing suits. And we’re not just talking about simple, straight forward one-pieces and bikinis, myriad swimwear brands are taking ethical practices into account and going the extra mile with design — you can shop all the latest swimwear trends from ethical brands and feel so much better about doing it. What could be better for destination brides-to-be, beachy wedding guests, or couples planning a tropical honeymoon or romantic getaway where you plan to almost exclusively wear swimwear?

Whether your swimwear style is minimal, feminine, colorful, or glamorous, ethical swimwear brands have just about every style of suit imaginable in well-made fabrics, modern silhouettes, and bright colors. The biggest difference with an ethically-made swimsuit is that so much more goes into an itty-bitty bikini or one-piece from the way in which materials are sourced to how the fabric is designed and treated (natural dyes versus harsher chemicals, produced in smaller batches with less waste, etc.) and the wages and working conditions provided for those actually making each piece. For a seemingly simple item, it’s so much to think about, but brands want to take these thoughtful and important steps to ensure their business is more sustainable not only for the benefit of the planet but for mindful shoppers who take all of these factors into consideration when shopping for swimwear. And with so many ethical options out there, you can easily amass a stylish collection for your honeymoon, destination wedding, or romantic getaway by the beach and feel good about doing it.

Whether you’re shopping for a few white swimsuits for a beautiful bridal moment, want to experiment trends like high-waist bikinis, minimal ‘90s silhouettes, cool colorblocking, and one-shoulder designs, or you want to stick to the basics and scoop up a few timeless one-pieces and bikinis you know you’ll keep forever, ahead, 31 stylish and ethically-made swimsuits for every taste and occasion.
