Label We’re Loving: Bantu Might Actually Make You Feel Good About Swimsuit Shopping

Swimsuit shopping isn’t an activity lauded for its therapeutic properties. If you inhabit a body similar to Miranda Kerr’s you might view the process more positively, but for the majority of us, it just kinda sucks.

Shopping for a Bantu swimsuit, though, is something you’re almost guaranteed to feel good about. Not only do they come in happy colors and vibrant prints, but they’re designed for a cause. Bantu works exclusively with local vendors in Africa, meaning money goes into their economy and attention goes towards the skills of the artisans. Combined with the fabulousness that then goes on to your body, it’s a win-win-win situation.

Resort 2013 marks Bantu’s Australian debut. In the U.S. the brand is sold by Barneys and Opening Ceremony, so they don’t choose their retailers lightly. The first collection to land on our shores brings five one-piece swimsuits and more two-pieces than any girl could dream of owning, all drenched in psychedelic prints and enriched excellent remedial properties. Though if you still wary of any lingering pastiness, there’s nothing like hitting the bottle for an extra boost of confidence.

Now all we need is a time machine to get us through the rest of winter…
