Every single peony swimwear piece is made from recycled and sustainable fabrics. This includes our printed fabrics, our custom textures and even our inner linings.

 For our printed fabrics, we use fabric made from ECONYL®, a 100% regenerated nylon made from abandoned fishing nets and nylon waste from landfills and oceans around the world.

 For our custom textured fabrics and linings, we develop these fabrics in-house using GSR certified recycled fibre, such as Repreve®. 

This depends on the fabric.

For our printed fabrics, we use ECONYL®, a 100% regenerated nylon made from abandoned fishing nets and nylon waste from landfills and oceans around the world.

For our custom textured fabrics, we develop these in-house using GSR certified recycled fibre, such as Repreve® which is made predominantly from post-consumer plastic bottles.

Yes, it is exactly the same. The quality of the recycled nylon fabric is not compromised at all during the regeneration process. In fact, the nylon waste is recycled right back to its original purity meaning it is exactly the same as virgin nylon.

Yes, we deliver worldwide. International shipping is free over $150 or a flat rate of $12 for under $150. Express Shipping is available for a flat rate of $20.

For more information on shipping, see our Shipping page.

We use compostable and biodegradable packaging throughout our supply chain. Our bags are made using plant-based materials like cornstarch and wheat, replacing synthetic materials like petroleum. These bags break down easily and can be placed in your compost bin. Unlike regular plastic bags, which can take up to 1000 years to break down, our biodegradable and compostable bags will break down in 3-6 months and help to reduce our environmental impact.

Thread a tape measure under your arms, across shoulder blades at back and around the fullest part of your bust. Relax your arms at either side and keep the measuring tape parallel to the floor.

To find your natural waistline, bend to one side to find the natural indentation in your torso. This is your natural waist. Run tape around natural waistline, keeping tape parallel with floor.

Stand on a level surface with feet together. Measure around widest part of hips and bottom, keeping tape parallel with floor. Do not measure around your hip bones, this is too high. Measure around the widest part of your lower hips and bottom, often this is the upper thigh area.
