Designed to stay in place in very small waves (broken waves)
YOU ARE A BEGINNER SURFER
You are learning to surf or surf only a few times a year, during your holidays or a surf trip. You stay where you can touch the bottom, in tiny waves or broken waves. You surf for the pleasure of being in the water and for the feeling you get from it. During your sessions, you often fall but you fall in waves that are not very powerful. We have designed a wide range of swimwear for you, to suit your occasional practice and your body shape.
ACTIVE AT THE BEACH!
Whether you be a surfer or enjoy bathing in the sea, you don’t want to lose your swimsuit! This is why we test all our swimsuits in the waves. Each model is designed for surfing and perfectly suits other water sports: stand-up paddle boarding, sailing, kite surfing, bathing, etc.
The Marine tankini is designed for women who want to wear a one-piece swimsuit but have a body shape with different top and bottom sizes. This happens to be the case for most women! Wearing a tankini with the briefs of your choice lets you choose a top and bottom size to suit your body shape and have the coverage and style of a one-piece. We chose to give it a V-neck front and back, which gives it a very feminine look
You could try layering pieces by wearing, underneath the Marine tankini, the Lori bandeau for small busts and a peekaboo style or the Astrid balconette for medium and large busts.
STAYS IN PLACE IN THE WAVES: THE TEST
We design swimsuits that promise to stay in place in the waves. To test them, we use a panel of female surfers with different body shapes who will follow a test protocol in a pool at our design offices in Hendaye. This protocol aims to reproduce the sensations experienced by surfers when being thrown around by a wave. If this test is conclusive, we go surfing in the sea to test our swimwear in real conditions.
COMFORTABLE IN OUR SWIMWEAR
We strive to support women to ensure they feel comfortable in our swimwear. The chest is not squashed, the buttocks are not emphasised, coverage levels vary. Our mission is to ensure that every woman finds a swimming costume that suits her, whatever her body type or size.
UNDYED GREIGE LINING
In terms of sustainable development, we have chosen not to dye the lining of this swimsuit. It is therefore greige in colour, significantly reducing its CO2 footprint, especially given that the lining is not visible when the swimsuit is worn. All of our new developments incorporate the concept of eco-responsibility. The planet is our playground, the ocean our favourite part; let's protect them.
DRY SIZING AND WET SIZING
To ensure a perfect fit in the water, it is important to choose the right size while you are dry because once they are in the water, swimsuits become looser. We therefore recommend you buy the correct size. The swimsuit needs to fit snugly against your body in the fitting room, you should feel supported. The elastane contained in certain components used in the design of our swimsuits softens and relaxes in the water.
