What a crazy year 2020 has been!
For my regular readers and those who follow me on Instagram you will know that there are two things I really love – travelling and bikinis. But like millions of others around the world, holidays and travel have been put on hold for me.
As I write this we still can’t travel between states in Australia. That has meant my hope of enjoying the spring school holidays in Far North Queensland has been dashed!
However, with the weather warming up in Sydney I am looking forward to heading to the beaches in Sydney as often I as can. And for this coming season I will be wearing this gorgeous bikini from Aussie brand, Ira Bikini.
Irla’s swimwear is designed in Australia and manufactured in Bali. They pride themselves on having a lux, fun, and ethical brand.
The bikini top I am wearing is called the Emma and the bottoms are the Isla. Here is a link to it. I love the bright floral pattern but because its reversable the other side is a bright sunshine yellow – perfect for when I (hopefully) get my summer tan.
A focus on body positivity
Irla want girls to feel confident with their bodies so they’ve designed swimwear from tweens to women. Their designs are fun, fresh and reversible, matched with bold, bright prints and fabrics. They want every girl to know that no two bodies are the same, yet all bodies are unique and beautiful.
Ethical and sustainable
Their swimwear is seamless, made from soft luxurious recycled and regenerated fabrics and ethically made.
All pieces are environmentally friendly and made with eco friendly dyes. The fabrics are made from recycled polyester (reclaimed from abandoned fishing nets left to cause havoc floating through the seas and oceans) empty plastic water bottles and other recycled plastics. Even the packaging is compostable, with company tags made from recycled materials.
It’s so good to see a brand make such conscious choices.
They also give back!
With every purchase made from Irla Bikini they donate one per cent to help support and protect Australia’s oceans and marine wildlife, through the Australian Marine Conversation Society. This group is dedicated to protecting Australia’s amazing oceans and marine wildlife.
I can’t wait to share more pics on Instagram through the spring and summer from the beach in my Ira bikini – and maybe next year from some tropical overseas beach!
