Baobab Swim: A Colombian Brand on a Mission

If you’re familiar with my love for Agua Bendita or tendency to gush scrolling through Johanna Ortiz’ stunning swim designs, you may notice a trend across the brands I idealize most: they’re founded by talented Colombian women! This Summer I’m adding another brand to my list of Colombian loves after discovering Baobab Swim. One look at their collection of slinky, colorful swimsuits and ready-to-wear designs and I was in love, enamored by founder and creative director Isabella Espinosa’s use of unexpected cutouts and bold take on vacation wear.

But my true love for Baobab solidified after learning more about their impressive sustainability practices. This self-proclaimed “restorative brand” crafts their suits from plastic and fishing nets, turning waste into iconic pieces and planting a tree for every swimsuit sold. In partnership with organization Corales de Paz, Baobab has made impressive strides toward preserving Colombia’s San Andres Coral Reef.

When you shop Baobab, you’re supporting a brand with a passion for sustainable innovation — and a promise to do their part in preserving our planet’s natural resources. A company that makes looking good and feeling better easy and relatively affordable? Sold.

“Baobab is a restorative brand. We turn waste into iconic pieces while restoring coral reef ecosystems. Doing the most, while wearing the least. We take plastic & fishing nets out of the ocean to make your Baobab. .”


Baobab Swim: My Favorite Designs

When it came time to start searching for new swimwear and vacation-worthy pieces for our Italy trip, I knew I needed to get my hands on Baobab’s latest looks. Here are a few of my favorite pieces from the brand’s current collection:

Baobab Swim: Sizing Notes

In my own experience, I found Baobab’s swimsuit tops to run true to size (I’m a small and ordered a small), while their bottoms run a bit on the smaller side (I’m a small and prefer Baobab’s size medium). Dresses and ready-to-wear pieces run true to size. Check out the brand’s full sizing guide here.


Baobab Swim: Where To Buy

In addition to their brand site, Baobab is currently available for purchase at five major retailers. I’m outlining these below (with exception of Intermix which is temporarily down for maintenance at the time of this article) and a few of my favorite Baobab pieces from each.
