10 on-trend Aussie swimwear brands

With some of the world’s best beaches, it makes sense for Australia to have some of the best swimwear brands. Meet 10 independent Aussie labels on the pulse of the hottest fashion trends.

1. Bondi Bather

This label was created by a group of Bondi locals inspired by that notorious strip of Sydney sand. They’ve even coined their very own “Australian cut” style; a take on the infamous Brazilian. Designed and made in Australia for the Australian sun, each piece has a 50+ UV rating.

2. Zulu & Zephyr

This Australian lifestyle brand has established a cult following for its swimwear line. The boutique label is known for releasing collections in tran-seasonal colours and in a variety of shapes, cuts, styles and sizes. Pick your favourite colour and get it in every style, or flaunt your favourite style in every fabulous colour!

3. VDM the Label

New on the scene is VDM, a label that’s eco-friendly and sustainability conscious. Made with regenerated nylon, and resistant to chlorine and sun creams, their classic styles should last you summer after summer.

4. Baku Australia

Run by a Sydney-based brother and sister duo, Baku is one of Australia’s most successful swimwear brands. Stocked in over 450 stores worldwide, the Australian-made apparel is known all over the world for its bold patterns and bright colours.

5. Mara Swim

This label is all about being sun smart and stylish. The unique range - including long-sleeve one-pieces and swim pants - has been featured on runways all over the country. They’re also proud supporters of the Melanoma Institute Australia, donating $1 from every sale to the cause.

6. Burrows and Co

Inspired by and designed for Australia’s coastline, this label prides itself on ethically producing high-quality, eco-friendly bikinis. They also create a beautiful range of beach-wear and poolside apparel for throwing over your bathers.

7. Jaymes Swimwear

Each Jaymes piece is hand-made in Australia with only a limited number of each item available (talk about on-trend). The designer bathers are made in creative patterns and diverse styles to cater to women of all shapes and sizes. Once they’re sold out, they’re gone for good, so you’ve got to be quick.

8. Bond-Eye

Flattering styles in countless colours, often created with textured fabric. These pieces are effortlessly classic. Their signature piece - The Linda - is a homage to Linda Kozlowski’s head-turning one-piece in Crocodile Dundee (1986).

9. The Fold Swim

Frustrated by a gap in the Australian market, two Melbourne designers came together to create The Fold; a range of functional, supportive, stylish and flattering swimwear specifically for larger cup-sizes. Their online experience is also dedicated to “praising curves”, and all of their styles are sold as separates.

10. Cantik swimwear

Designed in Melbourne and ethically made in Bali, this label finds the perfect balance between vintage styles and contemporary fashion. Their most popular style? The Byron; an 80s inspired one-piece in all your favourite 2019 colours.
