About our Swimwear

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 risqué 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.

Size matters

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?

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).

PROVENANCE

Halcyon Blue was established in 2005 in Kent UK with the simple idea to make Brazilian inspired swimwear in England.

We design and source every single component used in our swimwear ourselves and assemble them in our factory in West Sussex United Kingdom. We wish we could say that every component is made in the UK, but that simply isn't possible.  What we can say is that every component is of the highest quality and none are sourced from outside of Europe.
