Whether you’re planning a six-month expedition across the globe or lots of shorter getaways throughout the year, you’ll need the best swimsuits out there to see you through your travels around the world in style. From city breaks where poolside reading and relaxing are top on your list to hopping from beach to beach along sunny coastlines thousands of miles from home, we have the chicest and most sustainable swimwear you won’t want to be without. 

The only question is, are you all about classic black bikinis in a timeless triangle or bandeau shape? Or are you looking to mix things up with a patterned one-piece or a one-shoulder top and matching bottoms? No matter your style we have everything you need to look and feel your best when you’re away.



Before we dive into the bikinis and one-piece swimsuits at the top of our wishlist, let’s briefly highlight why investing in sustainable swimwear for traveling around the globe is such a great idea. 

  • In comparison to the practices of fast fashion brands, sustainably made swimwear vastly reduces the amount of waste in landfills and the ocean. Knowing this just makes us feel good as we swim in the ocean and visit some of the world’s most beautiful beaches on our travels.
  • Our sustainable swimwear uses high-quality, eco-friendly fabrics. They look great, feel great against your skin, and are genuinely designed to last.
  • What may seem like a slightly higher price point at first saves you money over time since you won’t have to replace your items frequently as you do with poorly made swimwear. Our sustainably made bikinis and one-piece bathing suits are durable and made to stand up against pool chlorine, seawater, and the heat of the sun. 



Dependable, stylish, and sustainable swimwear is essential for world travel, and an all-black one-piece swimsuit never misses. Eternally flattering, endlessly versatile, and forever in style, you just can’t go wrong. Not to mention, the right suit will look just as amazing worn with skirts and pants on land as it does on its own in the pool or the ocean.

The black Zabel bathing suit is the one we come back to time and again. Not your average scoop neck suit, this one-piece has a stunning zig-zag strap detailing to subtly elevate its simple black design. Pair it with a mesh bathing suit cover-up for maximum style points by the pool, or throw a pair of wide-leg pants over top with your go-to sandals for a low-key dinner date look.

When you’re off exploring far-away lands and soaking up every experience possible, you never know where the day might take you so you’ll need to be prepared. Adventurous days might lead to endless surfing, paddle boarding, and sea swimming, but when the mood is more laid back, it’s all about boat trips, strolling on the sand, and lounging in the sun. The idea is to have swimwear that works for every type of day so you feel supported and stylish no matter where it leads.

That’s why we love to stock our suitcases (or backpacks) with sustainably made bikinis. They’re lightweight, versatile, impeccably made, and there’s a style to suit every activity. Not to mention they pack down so well you can fit multiple styles in your luggage! A particular favorite is the Marie triangle bikini top and matching side tie bottoms. A classic in every way, this bikini will never go out of style. We adore and highly recommend the plain black and neutral colorways for mixing and matching with beachwear and other bikinis you already own. That said, if you’re looking for something a little more playful or colorful to take with you on your trip, it also comes in burgundy, aqua blue, powder pink, and our eternally pretty black and pink coral print.

Meanwhile, for a bikini that has you covered for all eventualities without the need to change, try the Annie bandeau bikini top and matching high waisted bottoms. So beautiful you’ll be more than happy to wear it by the pool or with a cover-up and sandals for a low-key lunch. Then, if and when your afternoon calls for adventuring into the sea for a swim or a water-based activity that requires full coverage and plenty of support, the high waist style bottoms and bandeau top have you covered there too. Oh, and did we mention it too comes in six different colorways?

Traveling the world usually means we have limited packing space. With that in mind, we need swimwear that works both on and off the beach. Look out for sustainably made, luxury swimsuits you can wear under a skirt, with palazzo pants, or even a pair of jeans. 

With both style and versatility in mind, we highly recommend adding the Chikyu belted swimsuit in the sandy shade of mosaico to your swimwear rotation. With a chic square neckline, medium coverage, and a flattering belted waist, this gorgeous, neutral one-piece will make you feel effortlessly stylish when you have it on. It’s great for sea swimming but will, of course, work for pool days too. What’s more, it looks amazing with skirts and pants so gives you an extra option when picking out your outfits on your trip. It’s the ultimate beach-to-bar look that’ll see you through countless summers to come.

Don’t get us wrong, we’ll always have a soft spot for black bikinis and any other neutral swimwear that stands the test of time in terms of style and quality. However, sometimes, particularly when you’re traveling the world and making memories to last you a lifetime, you want your swimwear to reflect all of the joy and excitement you’re feeling. 

With that in mind, we’re highlighting our favorite sustainable styles with beautiful bright colorways. 

Red is timeless but happens to be trending right now making the elegant Zabel one piece swimsuit in Burgundy the ultimate bathing suit for your trip.

For lovers of those magical, deep orange sunsets you only seem to see when you’re traveling, the Nikko bandeau bikini top with its rouched high waisted bikini bottoms in the romantic burgundy is for you. Endlessly flattering and with detachable straps to switch up your silhouette as needed, this bikini will see you through countless days and memories made on your travels.
