Summersalt cofounders Lori Coulter and Reshma Chattaram Chamberlin were tired of the swimwear industry’s failures: Hypersexualized ads, narrow sizing, and swimsuits that, frankly, weren’t designed to be comfortable for most women. Using Coulter’s experience in made-to-order apparel, the pair began designing swimwear — with consistent sizing — based on body scans from more than 10,000 women, then incorporated luxe recycled fabric and straight-from-the-runway style inspiration to create designer-quality products at accessible price points. With most of its line coming in between sizes 0 to 24, Summersalt inspires confidence that you’ll find your dream suit, with a comfortable fit to boot. Who knew something so simple could be so revolutionary?
Why we love them
If you haven’t been excited about a new swimsuit in ages, you’ve come to the right place. Summersalt eases your swimsuit woes with stay-in-place fabric, multiple levels of coverage, long-torso sizing, and one-pieces that are anything but boring. When it comes to best-selling styles, Summersalt is known for the Sidestroke, a sleek one-shoulder style, and the Perfect Wrap One-Piece, but the new Seascape Sweetheart has quickly become another fan fave. If two-pieces are more your speed, Summersalt carries a wide range of styles and patterns you can mix and match. Beyond swimwear, Summersalt offers chic and comfortable apparel from stylish sweaters to go-anywhere joggers, plus cozy coats and more.
