Vitamin A - California

If you’re looking for an A+ swimwear brand that is both sexy and sustainable, Vitamin A has you covered. As the originators of the Little Black Bikini, their collection of eco-friendly bathing suits has become an ethical icon on beaches and in pools around the world.

Designer Amahlia Stevens, who grew up on the beaches of Southern California, started the brand in 2000. It all began with the California Cut bikini bottoms; since, Vitamin A has evolved into an insider go-to for day- to- night, beach-to-boulevard chic.

Vitamin A has set out to beautify the beaches in more ways than one by doing their part to reduce their environmental footprint. Their exclusive new EcoLux matte superfine jersey is made with recycled nylon fiber to conserve precious resources. They also use LYCRA XTRA LIFE fiber to extend the life of each swimsuit, meaning these suits will last you swim after swim.

On top of that, Vitamin A employs waterless digital printing technology, incorporate sustainable fibers like Eco Linen into our après-beach styles, and choose factories that conserve water and energy. Every step of the way, this ethical swimwear brand takes the time to get to know the people who produce their fabrics and collections, and know that they are being treated well. Finally, Vitamin A donates a percentage of profits to environmental organizations, showing that they care about the future of the earth and its beaches.

As a force in sustainable fashion, Vitamin A is bringing sexy back to sustainability with their line of gorgeous tops, colorful bottoms, and adorable one-pieces. Sand, sun, sea, and swimsuits – what else could a girl want?
