Questions & Answers

Swimsuit Q's, sizing, and care

One size, really?

We don’t do sizes at Youswim. We make three flattering styles (that's the Aplomb, Poise and Eva) — in a One-Piece, High and Standard Waist two-pieces — which all currently fit seven sizes in one. If you’re usually a U.S. 2 to 14 or UK/Aust. 6 to 18, these swimmers will fit you. They're ribbed, crazy-flexible, feel soft, thick, super luxe, and the simple shapes will equally flatter big-busts, no-bums and all the beautiful in-betweens.

Where do you make your swimsuits?

Our swimsuits are lovingly made in England to ensure the highest possible quality. That’s everything from the weaving of our super-stretchy fabric, design, cut, sew, and packing.

No sweatshops were involved in the making of your swimsuit.

What are they made of?

Our swimsuits are made using high quality, European-sourced nylon and elastane and woven in England. 88% nylon, 12% elastane.

How should I care for my Youswim suit?

With the correct care, we expect your Youswim to continue adapting to you for many summers.

Do not wring to dry. Wringing or stretching to dry your Youswim may damage the stretchy fibres in your suit, ruining its amazing ability to stretch over and over, summer after summer. Please lay it flat to dry or lightly squeeze some water out before hanging to dry in the shade.

Chlorine pools are generally safe (our suits are colour-fast), but be sure to thoroughly rinse your Youswim in fresh water after your swim to avoid premature damage or deterioration caused by chlorine acid. Use in hot tubs is not recommended due to high levels of chlorine acid.
These are the other details you’ll find on the care label:
Colour may transfer when wet. Hand wash separately with care. Do not machine wash. Rinse in cold water after use. No detergent. No Bleach. Do not wring. Do not rub. Avoid contact with suncream & chemicals. Do not roll up or store when wet.

Will my Youswim suit shrink or stretch over time?

Nope - not if you follow the care instructions above.

Is the fabric see-through/transparent?

Our swimsuits have been worn and tested by countless women, and they generally aren't sheer and offer full coverage. The only exceptions during our testing are Tangerine, Aster and Wasabi colours which prove to be slightly sheer on a small proportion of ladies.

Will you be able to see everything when it’s cold (if you know what I mean)?

No more than any other quality swimsuit (in fact, our luxe ribbed fabric can hide some little details). Our suits don't include lining, cups or padding which would limit their ability to adapt to your changing body.

Will it fit my extra-long torso? One-pieces are usually too short for me

Most likely! Seriously, it’s really stretchy - in all directions. Traditional swimwear material and fixed sizing doesn't leave you with much room to move, but our one-size suit is made to accommodate these beautiful variations in body shapes with ease - or Aplomb (sorry, we had to). Long or short torsos, big-busts or no-busts, we got you.

Many customers around 6ft tall wear our one-pieces and report it to be totally comfortable. We’re be happy to help with any sizing worries, just get in touch at


What about my D/DD's, will I get the support I need?

We're here for you! Our suits don't include any built-in bust support, but the super-flexible, seamless fabric will easily stretch to fit your D, DD, F or G's's and the ribbing will lightly hug your curves in ways a typical swimsuit wouldn't.

Ethics and sustainability

Ethical production

Our suits are manufactured and packed in England. In agreeing to work with our English manufacturing partner, we sought to ensure production quality, fair living wage and benefits for workers, commitment to workers safety, and a dedication to minimising their impact on the environment. Being made in England, our manufacturing partners recognise the UK’s long tradition of health and safety regulations, as well as EU waste regulations and code of practice, and other strict regulations on industrial waste and worker safety.

Our swimsuits are sold direct-to-you, bypassing costly middle-men and wholesalers which would unnecessarily increase our environmental burden and our costs - and in turn, yours.

For the Youswim team, being ethical is about doing the right thing. No sweatshops were involved in the making of your swimsuit.


In our home town the team love to cycle, use public transport wherever possible, and make the most of car-sharing schemes. As far as our product goes - it’s made to last. Our packaging is reusable and 100% recyclable, and the swimsuit is made to stick with you summer after summer. A longer lasting swimsuit means it spends more time in the water and less time in the trash.
