H&M proves yet again that you don’t need to sacrifice style, color, or drop loads of money on some great sustainable pieces.
If we had to pick just one piece, it would have to be the white halterneck waffle bikini, which conjures up images of Naomi Campbell, Tyra Banks, and Beverly Peele all aboard a yacht—the ultimate 90s supermodel vibes. it’s flattering and effortlessly gorgeous and the waffle effect really gives it an expensive feel. You can get your hands on the top for $12.99 / £9.99 and the bottoms for $5.99 / £3.99—see, we said super affordable.
The H&M sustainable swimwear we're buying
The white and black versions of the bikini have 92% recycled polyester, the rust color has 88% (some of the styles and colors differ on percentages so make sure you check!)
The Bandeau style swimsuit is also a must, for $17.99 / £12.99 you can get this style in a deep rust color. It also has removable inserts that provide good support, and a high cut at the sides. The rust is made from 88% recycled material, you can also get the same waffle material in white and black which are made from 92% recycled material—like the bikini.
The High leg Shaping swimsuit comes in black and has a halter neck and cut out and is made from 82% recycled polyamide. It’s fully lined and tight-fitting to accentuate your curves and also has adjustable straps and removable inserts.
