Responsible – Shapes in the Sand use only fabrics that are recycled, plant-based and/or supporting a circular economy. Fabrics are printed locally using a sublimation printing method that doesn’t require water or harsh chemicals, leftover fabric remnants are turned into accessories and bags and all orders are packaged plastic-free.
Shapes in the Sand work closely with a small family-owned stretch wear maker in Sydney to ensure high-quality garments are produced and minimal waste is made during the cutting of fabrics. They have developed a water-soluble hygiene liner that is made from wood pulp and non-toxic inks, made to be replaced after each use and helping support a plastic-free environment.
This season as part of the Blossom collection, the company have partnered with Aussie Ark and their Koala Ark Project, building the world’s largest wild Koala sanctuary. It’s through the labels unique nature-inspired print stories that show Shapes in the Sand’s homage to nature and journey of Sustainably Shaping Swimwear.
This is a truly beautiful product from all perspectives. The cut, style and print of the one-piece is unique and flattering. The material used is quite firm which helps to give the body shape in the right places and I love the v neck and the little bows on the shoulders.
I adore the print on these gorgeous swimmers. I also love the flattering firmness around the tummy and how they elongate my legs. The material is of the highest quality and it feels like these will keep going strong for years.
I adore the Australian native flora printed onto this beautiful one piece. As someone with skinny hips and small boobs, the design of this swimsuit really enhances my shape. I love that it’s made using recycled materials and that a percentage of purchases goes to building the world’s first wild Koala sanctuary.
