Whatever the nuances of your skin tone, there’s a colour of swimwear that’s perfect for you at Type Swimwear. Inclusivity is one of the values at the heart of our company. When Ines was an architecture undergraduate, she founded Type Swimwear to design beautiful pieces that bring self-confidence to the wearer. Our pieces are designed and made in Portugal, from quality fabric. We’re careful not to waste material: our high-quality leftovers are refashioned into our unique Greta bikinis.
Bold colours can wash out light skin, but at Type Swimwear, we’ve got the lovely Marmols Bikini which will give your tan a boost. Its seaside patterns are colourful without draining the natural colour from your skin, and you can choose to style its triangle-cut top with or without bows. It’s easily adjustable, and you can remove the cups. The Marmols Bikini is also available in a rich blue-green that looks lovely whether you have dark or fair hair. White swimwear can bring out all the golden hints in red hair, and helps you look more bronzed. For brunettes, we’ve got the fabulous Marcal swimsuit which is sure to flatter darker skin and hair. It’s rimless, so it won’t leave annoying marks on your skin and features a fabulous tie-dye pattern of red on white for a boho vibe.
For olive skin, we’ve got classic black swimwear, and it doesn’t get more classic than the Bikini Candy’s bandeau top. Olive skin also looks great in our range of hot pink swimwear, from the triangle cut bikini of the Marmols Bikini to the vintage cut of You’re Sexy For a pink one-piece swimsuit, there’s the gorgeous You’re Unique swimsuit. Its cut is simple and elegant, and its lining is as supportive as a bikini top. Or why not try our You’re Joy top in a supportive subtle green fabric? It’s easily adjustable for comfort, and suits olive skin perfectly. For younger swimmers, we’ve got the charming Verbena Swimsuit in a textured blue stripe which will look equally at home in the pool, the sea or on the beach.
For dark skin, we’ve got both bright colours and pastels. The Bikini Candy is available in a delightful baby blue, and the sporty Top Kleio comes in a minty green fabric that will complement a tan. Or why not try pearl grey for a more unusual look? Our One-Piece Jade is underwired for support and fastens neatly with a bow at the back. It’s the kind of swimsuit that looks good from all angles.
For something bold, try our Bikini Kiss in metallic stripes. Its bottoms are reversible, so you get two styles in one. Our Marmols Bikini also comes in a salmon pink that’s great against dark skin. For children, we’ve got the lovely pink Barbie Girl swimsuit. The bandeau neckline gives it a simple feminine touch. It’s sure to become a favourite.
