Vege Threads Eco swimwear
Thursday December 1, 2016·
Dayuuuuum girl, is that swimsuit organic? 'Cause you're making me feel healthy about body image and guilty about my lifestyle choices. Vege Threads have been quietly owning the basics market with their recycled fibre, locally made garments for a while now. Made in small-runs to avoid any waste out of their workspace in Melbourne, Vege Threads continue to ply hungry consumers with introspective shopping habits with the goods and now they're doing hot, hot, hot swimwear too.
The Eco swim range has classic shapes and colours and is made of 78% recycled nylon. Ethical production and material aside, the cuts are pretty spot-on. Think, one pieces that don't look frumpy, cute twist-y crops and high-waisted briefs that don't do that weird mushroom-top thing on gals with hips. The colours are pretty perf too, it's all seaweed and deep ocean with the customary go-to backup of chic black. And, let's be real, it's pretty tricky to find a good, basic cossie without trawling sketchy online stores or dubious chains. These beauties are clean and flattering and not too spenno so get out of Westfield you maniac.
While you're there, Vege Threads also have an array of really pretty yoga-wear and other basics you can buy directly from their site. But, if you're interested in the hows and whys and whats of your clothing in general, might I suggest also perusing Well Made Clothes, an Australian online boutique that specialises in ethical fashion, this Christmas.
