Simple and functional styles with a renewed fit, thoughtfully designed and sourced.
Barekini is a combined love of the environment and the female body. We have designed simple and sexy cuts, focusing on the fit to try and eliminate the need for constant adjusting. Barekini strives for that effortlessly beautiful look; forming to the body and staying in place like a second skin.
Made from 78% ECONYL® and 22% LYCRA® XTRA LIFE™, Barekini is a better bikini. ECONYL® works in partnership with Healthy Seas to recover discarded fishing nets from our oceans and recycle them, helping to reduce the amount of global waste and feeding it back into production cycles. Through a process of regeneration, the nylon from these nets is transformed into high-quality ECONYL® yarn and is then blended with LYCRA® XTRA LIFE™ for lasting durability and shape retention. 50+ UV protected and ultra-resistant to sunscreens, tanning oils, and chlorine- this luxurious and progressive techno fabric is defiant to the elements, extending the life of your swimwear.
Specializing in a uniquely thoughtful, no-fuss fit, that accommodates those with a larger bust, but average underbust. All bikini tops feature a fixed-adjustable band under the bust and adjustable shoulder straps, providing real support for swimming and athletic activities. Sized differently, only the coverage in the front gets larger as you go up a size, keeping the band the same circumference for each size (small through xl). The support band has 3 notches to choose from for adjustability and is gauged to fit bra sizes 32-36. All bikini bottom styles are mid-rise and curve upward on the sides so that the strap sits higher on the hip, avoiding the plush pocket in between the waist and hip bones, and creating a longer leg.
Designed and manufactured in San Diego, Barekini keeps process and production local in Southern California and utilizes bare minimum packaging and marketing materials. All of our branding and packaging is made from 100% post consumer recycled materials.
Barekini stands for goodness and we feel a responsibility to protect the environment that we love and respect. We hope to provide you with a beautiful product while using sustainable business practices and without causing any harm or adding to the waste. 10% of all profits go to Healthy Seas and Surfrider Foundation to help keep our oceans clean and save marine life. We give back - so you do too when you choose Barekini.
