Anita Swimwear using Econyl fabric made from plastics as featured on Lingerie BriefsRosa Faia (with Econyl® fabric)

The retail swim season takes off this month as winter sets in and the big escape begins. I confess that I am no swimwear maven, but I have been exposed to the category during my entire Lingerie career. Swimwear shares many of the fit and function issues as innerwear, particularly bras, panties and shapewear. It’s an important category for many Intimate Apparel boutiques, because it shares the … Read More


Parfait Swimwear, Vivien to piece bathing suit as featured on Lingerie Briefs

One thing I really appreciate about the Parfait brand is the intensity of due diligence they have done since they launched in 2010.

Swimwear is a natural segue from the lingerie channel: there are similarities in fabrics, fit, and now function. Swimwear is experiencing the same crossover effect as Intimate Apparel, not only in women’s wardrobes but also … Read More

Alawa Swim and Beachwear on Lingerie Briefs

It truly is a pleasure to discover a brand run by a team that is filled with passion for what they create and who they create for.  I immediately felt this way when learning more about Madrid-based swimwear label Alawa.  Creating elegant swimwear is at the heart of this label’s essence, following Dostoyevsky’s concept of “beauty that will save the world” as their mantra.

There is no shortage of elegant details … Read More

Marysia Swmwear & Beachwear as featured on Lingerie Briefs

I’ve been a fan of Marysia Swimwear for several years, and with beach/pool season in full-swing, it is the perfect time to finally feature the brand in our Gallery.

The current Summer 2019 collection has a dominant red, white & blue color scheme that happens to be right on theme with this week’s July 4th celebration.  When you take those colors, and mix in gingham print and scallop trims, we’re seeing … Read More
