Finding a good swimsuit is no easy task. Sometimes it takes trying on countless styles and options to find one that fits you just right, but that wasn’t the case for me when it came to Jolene swimwear. The second I tried on the Teresa Bikini Top ($42) and Natia Bikini Bottom ($42) in Stella, a pastel orange, pink, white and green floral pattern, I couldn’t wait to hit the water.
Jolyn is a women-led brand known for creating sustainable swimwear for active individuals Meaning, whether you want to surf, wave jump, swim long distances or go for a long walk on the beach or you just want a swimsuit that does whatever you do, its suits you. The brand also carries a variety of beautiful designs and colorways to suit every beach style, so you won’t find any boring swimwear here.
As someone who spends a lot of time in the water and out at the beach during the summer, having a swimsuit that goes with me is super important — I don’t want to readjust my bottoms or adjust my straps when a wave hits me. When I first tried on my matching Jolene bikini top and bottom, I was immediately impressed with the fit.
Natia bikini bottoms fit like a glove and hugged my waist perfectly without gaping or pinching anywhere. On me, the waist of true-to-size high-waisted bottoms hits below my belly button. The Teresa bikini top is a triangle style and offers more coverage and support than most bikini tops — thanks to the 3/4-inch-wide band below your bust. It has adjustable straps with corset-style lacing that cross and tie at the back, strengthening everything.
The suit is made from the brand’s recycled sea-flax fabric, which is made from recycled fishing nets and discarded nylon, but feels buttery-soft against your skin. This makes it thicker than most suits, increasing its durability. It features double lining and hidden stitching for a seamless look.
Since receiving the Jolene Teresa Bikini Top and Natia Bikini Bottoms, I’ve worn them countless times for trips to the beach, boating, and everything in between. It’s one of those suits that you can just throw on and go and know you’ll be comfortable all day.
