Halcyon Blue started importing bikinis and swimsuits from Brazil. As sales grew so did our frustration at not having the styles and sizes we wanted; so we decided to make our own.
All our designer swimwear is made in our own factory on the beautiful south coast of England. Our suits can be found on the finest beaches and resorts all over the world.
Our aim is to make high quality, stunning and risque bikinis that are designed to be worn and enjoyed.
Bikinis built for comfort
There are many bikini manufacturers around the world, old and new, all making the same sort of suits. We want our bikinis to be comfortable as well as sexy, so we use wider binding with soft cotton stitching resting on the skin. This means our suits will be more comfortable when worn in salt water and on sandy beaches.
Many of our competitors make "one size only" bikinis. This causes confusion as customers think this actually means "one size fits all", which couldn't be further from the truth! We realise everyone is different and so we make bikinis and accessories in a variety of sizes to ensure you can find the right fit for you. If we don't sell your size or colour then let us know and we will see what we can do!
Unique metal work
Instead of using stainless steel for our rings, grips, slides and name plates we use Zamak. It is rust proof, heat resistant and hypo-allergenic; all vital for high quality designer swimwear.
The finest fabrics
All our swimwear lycra is manufactured in Italy, which is renowned around the world for making fabric of the highest quality. We make sure it is salt water and chlorine resistant and not sensitive to sunlight - you would be amazed how much swimwear fabric isn't! If you give your suit the care and attention recommended it will give you many years of use.
Lined vs unlined?
Most of our smaller bikinis and sexier swimsuits are unlined and are designed to go see through when wet (how much depends on how dark the suit colour is). Our larger bikini styles and some of our swimsuits have lining to protect your modesty and this is clearly specified in the description. Lined tops, unlined tops, lined bottoms and unlined bottoms can be mixed and matched easily.
Unlined - These will go see through when wet, how much depends on the fabric colour (the darker it is the less see through it will be) and how dark your skin is. The real benefit of having no lining is that the fabric "clings" to the skin so looks better when wet! Unlined suits will also "tan through".
Lined - These suits are unlikely to go see through when wet (white may do slightly).
