What does “Limited Edition” Fabric mean and why is it better for the environment and sustainability?
Each season we source unique fabrics from verified sellers of left over and/or unused yardage of fabrics gathered from design and fabric warehouses. The industry terminology for these fabrics is “dead stock.” Large companies often produce or purchase fabrics in mass quantities and don’t use leftover fabric–especially if there are only a few rolls left. For us, however, they are a treasure trove of unexpected and varied textures that make for very limited quantities, great experimentation, and (just like a thrift store and vintage shopping) are good for the environment.
How is the brand sustainable in other ways?
We hope that every piece you purchase will be in your wardrobe for years to come. We design with timelessness and quality in mind. We choose fabrics that are responsibly made and from companies we have personally visited and learned about their ethics and manufacturing methods. Although we cannot verify everything (and we do source some fabrics in Los Angeles that are from foreign factories we do not know much about), we still feel very inspired and confident that we are taking steps to choose with consciousness and care.
We are currently looking into alternative packaging options, so orders will be shipped in only sustainable materials. We will continue to research and learn more about ways to have minimal waste and impact and keep you updated. You can also read more about it on our blog!
For bikinis, we offer separates so you can order tops and bottoms in the size you need. When choosing a one piece, if you are taller than 5’7″ the suit will rise higher on the hips. You may want to size up or down depending on how much coverage you desire.
For bodysuits with separate cup areas (like the LSL bodysuit), you will need to incorporate both cup size and height when choosing your size.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions. We’ll be happy to assist you with your size selection. Additionally, each product page includes a size chart.
When pre-ordering an item from our shop, please allow 6 weeks for your item to arrive. Pre-orders give you the ability to secure an item before it has been produced. Once the pre-order collection time frame comes to an end, we process and submit all orders for production.
All items are shipped via USPS.
Please allow 24-48 hours for all in-stock orders to ship. Any shortages will be reported immediately. In an effort to ship items as quickly as possible, multiple-piece orders may ship in more than one package.
Please note that pre-order items have a longer lead time for processing.
