It’s my annual swimsuit issue: channel old Hollywood glamor with a high-end Olga Olsson’s Lara bikini, comprised of high-waisted briefs and a bandeau top with a tulle halterneck.
Though this sexy Brazilian suit is made with 87% Polyamide/13% Elastane, fabric is sourced close to production and is made by a small atelier of women artisans in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, who are paid a living wage. (Lara Moulded Bandeau with Tulle Ties, about $127; Lara High Waisted Briefs, about $127)
View all the suits in my annual feature for Discovery’s TreeHugger.com: 10 Sexy and Sustainable Styles to Soak Up the Summer Heat.
