A lot of these brands also make their swimwear here in Canada, which is pretty awesome.

Best Canadian bathing suit companies


Ūnika

Ūnika offers both custom and pre-made swimwear pieces that are ethically made in Toronto using sustainable fabrics.

They have a lot of unique styles with ruffles, cutouts, and all sorts of fun stuff.

Their swimsuits are made from a fabric called ECONYL, a nylon yarn made from fishing nets, plastic scraps, and fabric scraps from landfills and oceans.

An awesome thing about ECONYL is that it can be recycled infinitely without losing its quality, so it can constantly be recycled and reused!

All their pieces are under $250, and they’ve got a lot of pieces under $100.

LOCATION: 101 Yorkville Ave, Toronto, ON


The Saltwater Collective

The Saltwater Collective ethically makes their swimsuits here in Toronto, also exclusively using ECONYL as a fabric.

They create elevated basics that you can mix and match to highlight your fave parts of your body.

You can shop by colour on their website and see all the styles they have for each one!

All of their bikinis are under $100 for each piece, and all of their one piece swimsuits are under $200.

While sustainable swimwear can be a bit more expensive, they’re pieces you can wear forever, so it’s worth investing in good quality pieces.


Minnow Bathers

Minnow Bathers is another swimwear brand based out of Toronto, and they make all their bathing suits to order in their studio.

They collaborate with artists for their unique prints, and all their swimsuits are made with recycled spandex.

All of their bikinis are under $100 for each piece, and all of their one piece swimsuits are under $200.

I love that they donate $1 from every sale to the Ocean Conservancy, and they also donate a portion of each sale to various animal and human rights organizations year-round.

If you live in Toronto, you can also do local pick-up at their studio in the west end!


Denude Swim

Denude Swim also makes their bathing suits in Toronto, and they’re all about minimal and modern pieces that accentuate your natural curves.

From neutral to neon, they’ve got all kinds of beautiful swimwear pieces that’ll never go out of style.

All of their bikinis are under $100 for each piece, and all of their one piece swimsuits are under $150.


Fortnight Lingerie

Fortnight Lingerie makes ethically and sustainably-made lingerie and swimwear at their studio here in Toronto.

Their pieces are absolutely gorgeous, and I wish I could have it all in my wardrobe.

They source high-quality and long-lasting materials from around the world, such as Italian jersey and organic cotton.

Mimi & August is based out of Montreal, and they make women’s clothing, swimwear, and accessories.

The brand started out from one of the founders, who started making custom swimsuits for her friends at her parents’ house!

I also love that they use real women as models rather than professional models on their website!

Londre’s bathing suits are sustainably and ethically made in Vancouver using at least 6 recycled plastic bottles each.

They’ve recycled over 200,000 plastic bottles to date, which is pretty epic!

They also have some beautiful and cozy apparel pieces.
