Available to both men and women, and with many accessories to choose from, the collection boasts a plethora of strong animal prints and colors and (jackpot!) for each purchase, a percentage is donated to Plastic Oceans UK to offset the carbon footprint of each sale.
Owner and Designer Sandra Pamela Palmer and the launch of says,
“I believe you shouldn’t sacrifice fashion for function. There’s room for both. A flattering, supportive, stylish bikini or one-piece swimsuit made with eco-conscious materials and all wrapped up in Earth friendly packaging – what more can a girl-on-the-go ask for? More than Swim offers beautiful prints inspired by endangered species.”
Personally feeling self conscious about baring her skin in a swimsuit, the UK designer was inspired to develop a line where one can just throw on a suit, knowing it will look good, and not worry about it. To help support this feeling, Palmer has added great control, glamorous shaping and a WOW print in the rebrand of More than Swim.
