SixtyNinety is a sustainable and ethical swimwear and resort wear brand. They offer on trend apparel to an audience that is eager to shop consciously and take away all the unnecessary elastic bands. SixtyNinety design swimwear tailored to the female body – seamless, extra soft and sexy. SixtyNinety swimwear is made from Tencel viscose that has a reforestation certificate, so that it is durable and long lasting. Tencel is made from wood pulp and requires significantly less energy and water to produce than cotton. It’s also great for swimwear and activewear because of its antibacterial and moisture repelling properties.

Chose our ocean friendly swimwear to reduce your environmental impact this Summer. Fast fashion brands that churn out swimwear that will only last one season are damaging the planet. Plastic waste from these brands is polluting our oceans and landfills because plastic does not decompose for incredibly long periods of time. Aequem swimwear brands actually help the ocean because they are mostly made from recycled plastic, reducing the amount of plastic pollution. Join us in taking responsibility this Summer and become part of the change!
