How does the sizing in your clothing work?
We currently only make unique size pieces meant to work for a range a sizes from S-L.
We want our clothing to adapt to your body and not the other way around. We are happy to make costum made pieces based on your measurements for no additional cost.
During checkout, just include in the notes: your bust, under-bust and hip measurements. The processing time for costum made pieces is 4-6 weeks.
For any additional questions about costum made pieces, feel free to reach out to us via IG (@concarinodesign).
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.
If you are a Medium in Chinese made pieces, a small will work! Check out our sizing chart!
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.

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.
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.
Why is your clothing eco-friendly?
All our clothing pieces are made from blends of natural fibers (like organic cotton, organic bamboo & silk) and dyed using only natural dyes (dyes made out of plants). This means all our pieces are biodegradable. Once your piece reaches the end of its life, it can be cut up into pieces and planted in the ground.
By sourcing organic and natural fibers we protect our planet from plastic pollution (derived from Polyester blends) and toxins coming from toxic dyes.
Why are your pieces ethically made?
Most of the clothing at stores it not made ethically. This means companies prioritize profit over the well-being of the workers involved in the manufacturing of products.
We care deeply about the people who hand make our pieces. That’s why we are committed to providing our employees living wages to guarantee their well-being and the livelihood of their families. We also make sure that the working conditions are comfortable and healthy.
All Con Cariño Design pieces are handmade by happy hands.
Why don’t you make your products in the USA?
We believe that work dignifies and transforms people and we want to be able to provide jobs in difficult environments. It’s part of our mission as a company to shift the relationship between the global south and western countries. By providing jobs to women in Venezuela, Nepal & Colombia we are preventing forced migration and the separation of families.
