Such a lovely retro bikini with a highwaist panty. Wonderfully soft organic cotton with 7% elastane which ensures a perfect fit and fast drying time. The shoulder straps can be tied higher and lower. Read more below.
MATERIAL everything about drying time, colors and fit
The Isole e Vulcani bikinis have been made from jersey cotton with elastane since 1989. You would think it stays wet for a long time with so much cotton. Fortunately it dries as fast as every other swimwear. Thanks to the use of 7% stretch material you have a "normal" drying time, a perfect fit that does not move when wet (it does not rub) and the color stays beautiful for much longer. Please note: chlorine from swimming pools can bleach the color and make it dull.
The jersey fabric is very soft and thinly knitted which makes it feel like a second skin. The fabric has a strong elasticity. Good to know is that the fabric is opaque, even when wet. The bikinis and bathing suits are unlined and dry just like other swimwear.
DETAILS swimwear without irritating edges and seams
The swimwear from Isole e Vulcani is manufactured as standard without pinching seams, because all edges are seamlessly finished, which ensures fantastic wearing comfort. So you have NO irritating horizontal seams on legs, stomach, breasts, back, etc. Only seams are used where it is really necessary; you'll find a small horizontal seam at the bottom and 2 minimal vertical seams on the left and right to bring the front and back of the swimwear together.
Good to know: despite the seamless finish, the fabric does not fray at the edges :)
The tie straps:
Thanks to the tie straps you can make the top higher and lower as desired (more or less cleavage;). With simple knots you can adjust the top or swimsuit completely to your bust and to your length. With heavier breasts you can easily tie the straps "higher" for a nice and firm fit.

SUSTAINABILITY about production and materials
As of 2020, Isole e Vulcani only uses organic cotton. All bikinis and bathing suits are still manufactured in Italy and are unlined. The company has chosen NOT to use plastic panty liners for the bottoms. This means that we ask you to always keep your underwear on and / or use your own panty liner when fitting.
ABOUT THE BRAND
The bikinis and swimsuits from Isole e vulcani (which literally means "islands and volcanoes") are characterized by simple, organic lines, beautiful colors, beautiful fits and natural materials.
Designer Daniela Fadda developed a line of seamless jersey cotton swimwear in the late 1980s, inspired by the raw nature and colors of the Aeolian archipelago in southern Italy. The collection breathes the atmosphere of that place: volcanic rocks, geothermal energy, reptiles, obsidian, ocher and red earth, black beaches.
All Isole e vulcani bikinis and bathing suits are (at the most crucial points!) Seamless so that it does not pinch anywhere on thighs, legs and stomach. They are made of very soft organic jersey cotton with a little elastane (93% and 7%). The latter ensures a good fit and stretch, better color fastness and faster drying time.
Since 2020, the collection has been made entirely from organic cotton and everything is still hand-made in Italy.
