The Swimwear Edit with Berlook | Ad

Collage of images of Berlook swimwear and the seaside

It might be a little chilly to think about a dip in the sea just yet, but for you keen swimmers out there, I’ve got a new discovery for you! Introducing Berlook, a sustainable swimwear brand I’ve been enjoying on my weekly (pool) swims this year. Their affordable swimwear is made with recycled materials, by ethical factories, in small batches. They’re the latest addition to my sustainable swimwear guide, and here’s why…

1. The Classic Boat Collar Swimsuit

Berlook has an extensive range of eco-friendly swimsuits, bikinis, and beachwear. On their site, they share a good amount of information about their ethical supply chain processes, and they also share the fabric composition of each garment. (You’d be surprised how many fashion brands don’t!) I was convinced to give them a try because almost all of their swimsuits are made from a majority percentage of recycled or regenerated fibres.

In amongst the pretty prints and pops of pastel in the Berlook range, I landed on this Black Boat Collar One-Piece Swimsuit and have to say I am so pleased with it. While it’s a simple style, there was a lot riding on it, and I have to say it’s performed above my expectations. The swimsuit fits true to size and is really comfortable, while being secure enough to swim lengths in.

I’ve actually taken to wearing this swimsuit as a top as well, as it fits similar to a bodysuit! On sunnier days, I’ll be pairing it with my age-old black linen shirt and cream linen shorts too. If you’re looking for something similar, I’d recommend checking out Berlook’s range of 100% linen beachwear – my top picks are below.

2. The Tie-Back One-Piece

I like having two swimsuits – one for “real” swimming, and another for beach lounging. This is my new lounging swimsuit – Berlook’s Contrast Trim Knotted One-Piece Swimsuit. Brigitte Bardot, eat your heart out!

Again, I went for a classic style, with black body and white trim. This swimsuit is also made with GRS certified recycled materials, and again, it’s well-made. I’m always a little hesitant with high-design pieces as they can often fail with functionality, but the knot back in this swimsuit holds well if you tie it with two simple knots. Just as before, it fits true to size, and it’s also comfortable, being fully lined, with adjustable straps, and padded front.

My Overall Rating of Berlook: 8/10

Berlook covers most ethical bases that I look for when assessing fashion brands. Not only are they producing their line of swimwear and beach clothing with ethical factories, they’re also predominantly working with recycled and regenerated fibres. Their designs are cute, and will appeal to beach-goers and weekly swimmers alike. They also fit true to size, and are well made. Finally, I think their pricing is affordable, and comparable to not-so-sustainable alternatives!
