THE BEEKEEPER CONVERTIBLE BOW TIE BIKINI TOP

$ 119.00 AUD
Description
All SHAPES IN THE SAND swimwear is designed, printed and made consciously in Australia from premium recycled and bio-based fabrications on the inside and out. 

The Bow Tie Bikini Top is our most versatile top to date. Made from a fibre that is derived from 100% recycled polyester from pre and post consumer materials. The removable centre bow gives you the opportunity to create two completely different looks. Wear the bow in the centre to create a flattering bust shape or remove the bow to create a square bandeau crop giving you more coverage. Tie the bow around your shoulder strap for a cute touch or take it off completely!

The Beekeeper print story features hand-drawn bees. Golden dripping honey against pastel shades of honeycomb, where Inspiration has been drawn from Spring in Australia and bees in our back gardens.

$10 from the sale of this item will be donated to The Powerful Owl Project as part of our partnership with BirdLife Australia. Learn more about this project here.

This style will suit larger busts. We recommend going up a size if you have a larger bust. Our first Nature Girl Zakiah wears a size 8 & is an A cup and Elise wears a size 10 and is a C-D cup. 

Swimsuit care

Shapes in the Sand swimwear is made from premium sustainable recycled and bio-based fabrications that are helping to keep our planet clean by using fibres that are derived from pre and post consumer materials and well as renewable resources. 

Our swimwear is made using on the highest quality tight knit fabrications. To ensure the longevity of your Shapes in the Sand swimsuit and to help you begin to take steps to helping keep our oceans clear from unwanted synthetic particles, we've put together a guide. 

What is a Nano Plastic?

A nano plastic is a tiny nano sized debris too small for the eye to see. Nasty little bits of microfibers in the form of strands that have been found to be entering our oceans every time we wash our clothes. These fibres come from not just synthetic clothing but could also be associated with cotton, wool & hemp. There are dyes and other chemicals associated with organic fabrics as well as synthetics. For this reason we need to be aware and do our part to stop that water from entering the oceans.

Shapes in the Sand  Washing Instructions ***
If you prefer washing your swimsuit in the washing machine, please put on a

gentle cycle and ensure the swimsuit is washed inside a Guppyfriend Washing Bag. If you don't have a washing bag please rinse your swimsuit in a bucket. Once you are done, dispose of the water somewhere that is not down the drain. Hang out to dry in the shade.

How else can you minimise microfibre shedding?.

Only buy clothing that has been designed with durability in mind, so that they  can not only be recycled after many years of use but to also ensure quality fabric 
construction.
Use a laundry bag that is made from a natural/untreated fabric.
Minimise the amount of times you use your washing machine and use a gentle
cycle that won't aggravate the fibres, releasing them from the garment.
Buy less! Only buy what you need. By reducing consumption, we reduce the    amount of waste. and the amount of times we need to wash. Less is more.
