The ellenny swim story

Originally from Melbourne, I have recently returned to Australia after living overseas for a while and have now relocated to Perth. We are loving exploring our new home state and rediscovering Aussie life.

Growing up in Australia meant a life of endless beach days, whether we were camping near my home town of Melbourne or off on a family road trip around Queensland.

During my childhood, we weren’t too concerned about sun safety. A big day at the beach meant sunburn followed by blisters and peeling skin! Fast forward a few decades and we now know that was the time when the damage was being done. Australia has the unenviable title of having the highest rate of skin cancers in the world. Research shows that those young years are also the most crucial for protecting the skin from damage.

Whilst rash tops have been around for a long time, they haven’t been designed with much style in mind. I made it my mission to design a range that incorporates sun safety with on-trend fashionable styles and prints.

After years of disappointment with ill fitting swimsuits, I have created a range of flattering swimwear for women and girls that also are designed to be sun safe and eco friendly.

I have chosen to use a range models who represent more realistic sized women and who my customers can relate to. Our sizing is representative of the average woman in Australia and Ellenny Swim aims to be inclusive of women of varying shapes and sizes. I also understand that our needs change as we mature and have incorporated flattering shapes and support where we need it most.

It is also really important to me to produce swimwear that is as friendly to the planet as possible. I chose to make it from fabric which is manufactured in Italy from reclaimed fishing nets and other waste. This fabric is one of the best choices for swimwear available. It is of superior quality and being chlorine resistant it will last for many year to come.

Here’s to a confident, comfortable summer spent in Ellenny Swim.
