The Swim by Everlane collection is on sale right now.
Select items and colors in this collection—all made with 82 percent regenerated nylon from recycled plastic—are marked down up to 50 percent.
The intersection of sustainability and affordability can be a small sliver of the Venn diagram of swimwear options these days. Topping out at $70 for a one-piece suit, Everlane’s swimwear has always been a great deal—especially considering they’re ethically manufactured from mostly recycled materials. Now the deal is even better. Everlane is marking select colors and styles down as low as $15 during its Summer Sale, which kicked off Sunday, July 18, and goes until inventory sells out (so hurry!).
Each item in the new Swim by Everlane collection is crafted from 82 percent regenerated nylon made with recycled plastic. (The other 18 percent is elastane, which can’t be sourced from recycled materials—yet—but Everlane says it’s working on it.) The result is a quick-drying and fade-resistant suit that can be machine washed in cold water and hang dried.
With eight different styles, the collection typically starts at $30 for swimsuit bottoms, $40 for bikini tops, and $65 for one-piece swimsuits. Right now, select colors and styles are marked down anywhere from 15 to 50 percent, bringing those prices down as low as $15 for swimsuit bottoms, $30 for bikini tops, and $45 for one-piece swimsuits. Each item is sold separately so you can mix and match to your heart’s content.

Everlane tested the suits on 112 different women in order to make sure they were comfortable and fit a range of bodies. In terms of sizing, each item is available in XXS through XXL covering U.S. women’s numeric sizes from 000 through 20. Since finding the right fit in swimwear can be difficult, Everlane accepts returns within 30 days from the ship date, as long as the protective hygienic liner is still attached.
The recycled materials aren’t the only detail that makes the Swim by Everlane collection sustainable. The company tapped MAS Holdings, an ethical manufacturing company in Sri Lanka that also produces Everlane’s line of underwear, to manufacture its swimwear. In addition to worker education programs including financial planning training, MAS also runs women’s health initiatives like breast cancer awareness for its largely female 73,000-member workforce.
