I’m a sucker for hot days, jumping into the water and exploring parks. American camping at it’s finest, Blue Springs, Florida proved to be a more beautiful place than originally thought. The sunfish were bobbing in and out of the cool 73 degree water while small turtles swam around the shallow banks. I don’t camp a whole lot, maybe two to three times a year, this was my first time at the springs. This is now on my list of spots to return to before the year is up. In this post I’ll share with you my ethical swimwear choice and links to other styles I’m currently obsessed with.
My Ethical Swimwear Choice
Ethical swimsuit options were scarce. I decided on this high-waisted 2-piece from American Apparel. They’ve always provided benefits for their factory workers and are known to make designs from their scrap fabric. I liked the retro cut because it not only creates curves for someone like myself, it also accentuates them if you are born with them. The cut is flattering on almost every body type.

My Other Swim Obsessions – Lazy Oaf Swim Club
Lazy’s Oafs support staff in London were able to email me a prompt answer that shed light on my ethical hope. They have current plans to become more transparent in the way they produce their clothes. Right now they make monthly habits of visiting their factories and make sure the people making their clothing are treated fairly. Their choices are just so nerdy cute! I’m holding on to my hope, so I had to just give a shout out and share. 🙂
