Looking for size inclusive swimwear and a way to support a small business? You’ve come to the right place. In this post I’m diving into one of my favorite woman owned, sustainable, small business swimsuit brands: Night Dive Swim.
Night Dive Swim – An Inclusive, Sustainable Swimsuit Brand
Night Dive Swim is one of the boldest and brightest small business bikini brands that I’ve tried. They offer ethically and sustainably made swimsuits in sizes XS-6X. With a motto of DO GOOD FEEL GOOD- unretouched, inclusive, spread love and empowered, it’s no wonder they are making waves in the swimsuit industry.
What Exactly Do You Mean Ethically and Sustainably Made?
I know “ethically and sustainably made” is a buzzword we are all probably used to hearing, but how often do we dive into exactly what that means? I can’t speak for you, but I know I don’t do it often enough!
Night Dive swim is made in Bali with zero production waste. Any leftover fabric scraps are used locally in the community. The workers are treated fairly, many having been together working for 15 years!
They use ECONYL® regenerated nylon for the bikinis. This is made from waste such as fabric scraps and fishing nets from the ocean. They keep things out of the landfill and out of the ocean. On their website, Night Dive shares that for every 10,000 tons of ECONYL® raw material, they are able to save 70,000 barrels of crude oil, and avoid 57,100 tonnes of CO2 eq. emissions. You can learn more about this process by visiting their website!
Support Night Dive Swim
Of course you can support this amazing small business by purchasing your next bikini from them! But don’t forget that the little things also make a big difference for a small business. Be sure to follow them on Facebook, Instagram and TikTok. If you have a friend on the hunt for a swimsuit, let them know about Night Dive!
I have been wearing their swimsuits since 2020 and can speak confidently about how well they hold up overtime. The bikinis are high quality and made to last for summer after summer. I primarily wear them in a chlorine pool, but have also worn them in lake and ocean water. I simply rinse the suits after wearing them and haven’t noticed any issues with colors fading, fit changing, etc.

For sizing reference, I wear a 3X in the bikini tops. My bra size is 36M US/36J UK. I am wearing an XL in the bikini bottoms. I usually wear a size 14 or 16. My hips are ~49 inches and waist ~35 inches. All Night Dive swimsuits can be shopped on Etsy!
BAJA Top and HONEY Bottom
I am wearing the color “CARIBBEAN” in the HONEY bottoms and BAJA bikini top. This top provides the most support out of the various styles. I love the high neck option, especially for days that I’m active having diving board contests with my nephews or attempting to surf at the lake.
MALIBU Top and HONEY Bottom
I am wearing the color “CARIBBEAN” in the HONEY bottoms and BAJA bikini top. This is the bikini top style that I have the longest! I love the adjustable straps that allow you to customize the fit.
ARUBA Top and HONEY Bottom
I am wearing the color “CARIBBEAN” in the HONEY bottoms and ARUBA bikini top. This is a new top and I am in love! It’s got a great amount of support in the band, adjustable straps and a sexy cutout detail under the chest. You can cinch the string tighter for more cleavage, or loosen it up for more chest coverage.
MALIBU Top and HONEY Bottom
Another reason I love Night Dive bright colors is because you can mix and match! I am wearing the color “CARIBBEAN” in the HONEY bottoms and BAJA bikini top. You already know about the top, so let’s chat bottoms! I find the bottoms to be a bit cheeky on me, just the way I like ’em! I have a smaller waist and larger booty/hips, so I focused my fit on the waistline. I could size up for more booty coverage, but I don’t want to lose any of the security and held in feeling the bottoms provide in this size. Can we also take a moment to admire the fun crossover detail on the front? So good!
