I need help choosing the right style and size for me.
How does your swimwear sizing work?
Our swimwear sizing is true to size, our sizes are bigger than mainstream swimsuits made in China or Indonesia. We would recommend you size down for all designs except for the Daniela and Marianela one piece. Check out our sizing chart!
Do you carry medium size?
No, we do not carry medium sizes for now. We encourage our costumers to size down to a size Small, if you prefer a looser fit, we would encourage you to size up to a large.
What is your return policy?
We want you to be in love with your purchase! We accept returns as long as Items are in original condition - unworn, unwashed, with all tags and sanitary protection labels still attached. Please note you are responsible for the cost of returning items to us, and shipping costs associated to exchanges. Returns and exchanges will be accepted within 10 days of delivery for exchange or store credit. SALE ITEMS & ACCESSORIES ARE NON-REFUNDABLE.
Remember to not remove your underwear when you first try on garments until you are certain that the fit and style are to your liking.
Where can I try swimwear on?
You can try the swimwear on in any of our local farmer's and artisans' markets. We would also love to offer our first time online costumers the opportunity to try on different styles. We can ship up to 3 different styles for try on with a security deposit. Feel free to contact us at email@example.com if you would love to coordinate an online try on.
How do you make swimsuits from recycled plastic bottles?
All swimsuits are made from polyester, polyester is made from virgin fossil fuels, essentially plastic. You can make the same product with plastic that already exists. PET bottles are collected and classified according to color and composition. Then they are shredded into plastic flakes, and melted into pellets. These pellets are extruded into yarn and are knitted, cut and sewed into beautiful sustainable swimwear.
Is there free shipping on all products?
All swimwear has free shipping, clothing and accessories have additional shipping fees.
How does the clothing sizing work?
We create unique size pieces meant to work for most body types. All our tops and skirts are wrap so they adjust to your waistline. All our dresses are loose fit, wrap or stretchy in the waist to allow for various sizes to adjust. Our pieces are meant to work for sizes XS-XL.
What if I need a different size top and bottom?
No problem! You can order your top and bottom separately and choose the size that works best for you.
Why is the swimwear sustainable or eco-friendly?
All our swimwear is made from recycled polyester fabric, repurposing the life of used PET bottles. Our fabrics have a composition of 81% recycled polyester 19% Lycra and have STANDARD 100 OEKO-TEX® certification.
Where is all the swimwear made?
All our products are made in Venezuela in the "Creaciones Osmar's" workshop in San Juan de Colón, Táchira State. Our operational headquarters are in Kauai, Hawaii, so we design & primarily sell locally in Kauai.
Why is it ethically made?
We provide living wages to women working in our workshop to guarantee their well-being and their families'. Minimum wage and living wages are very different, minimum wages in developing countries don't cover the bare minimum a worker needs to live.
We want our swimwear to be made by healthy happy hands so we pay the cost!
Why is all swimwear made in Venezuela?
We believe that work dignifies and transforms people and we want to be able to provide jobs in difficult environments to prevent migration and the separation of families.
