Gallery: SUMMER ECO STYLE: Kelly B Organic Bathing Suit


Summer is now fully upon us, and when you’re feeling the heat, there’s nothing more refreshing than taking a cool plunge in a local body of water. We hope that with Inhabitat’s Sustainable Style Sunday column under your belt, most of you are aware of the impressive range of options that now exist for environmentally sensitive fashion. Eco-friendly swimsuits, on the other hand, are still a bit hard to find. That’s why we are so excited about Kelly B’s super cute organic bathing suit which made its hot debut for Summer 08 – just in time for beach season!

Making a sustainable style splash at San Francisco’s fabulously curated green shop Eco Citizen, the Kelly B Amanda organic swimsuit is 90% organic cotton (10% spandex) and ethically made in California. Available in black and white, this chic classic halter cut is flattering to a range of body types. We love that the removable straps and adjustable back ties also allows for a surprising variety of versatile options for the wearer.

For those of you who love two-pieces, Kelly B also makes an organic bikini – although we’ve not seen as much coverage of the two-piece online yet, but will be sure to keep you posted. Let the wave of sustainable summer style begin!

    Great for women who still have two breasts. However, for anyone who has had a mastectomy, these don’t work at all.

    When are “eco’s” going to start designing for people with “altered bodies” and people who use walkers and/or wheelchairs???

    Hey ya’ll!
    I have the two piece at in the green black combo – it is so so so cute in person! Much better then in the pictures, my model loved it when she put it on. I have last year’s two piece by Kelly B and it still looks like brand new even though i wear it nearly everyday! Hasn’t beaded up on the fabric as many suits do.

    I love that bikini. I’ve actually been on the hunt for an eco-fashion bikini. Thanks for sharing. I’m the writer of eco-style blog Planet Pink n’ Green – and I’ll make sure to share this with my readers. We love Inhabitat–Cheryl Janis, writer of Planet Pink n’ Green, Twitter: PPnG
