You looking timeless and classy at the beach and feeling comfortable
in your bikini or swimsuit, no matter which body type:
that is our mission.
Our swimwear caters to not only small figures - our ambition is to create very well-fitting, flattering one pieces and bikinis especially for the curvier and large sizes. Our forties and fifties inspired, however timelessly elegant styles unfold their full Wow-factor in curvy figures especially.
We want your swimwear to last you many years, so only highest quality, certified fabrics and notions sourced from within the EU are chosen for our swimwear. 1979 SWIM offers its classic swim collection all year round. Just like Levi´s has their 501-Jeans, we have our high waist bikinis and classic swimsuits that are part of the permanent collection.
Each style is always made in black fabric as well as additional permanent and seasonal colors. Every year new features or variations are developed and introduced to the line, based on customer requests and wishes that are received throughout the year. We developed a Long-Torso Swimsuit and are working on some interesting new styles for next summer.
Our fabrics and notions come from our long time partner in France and every part down to the smallest hook and slider is Oeko Tex Standard 100 certified.
Our collection is designed in Berlin where small editions and custom orders are also directly made. Our regular basics are sewn only 2 hours away with the help of a family run manufactory in the neighboring Poland.
Editions are kept small to ensure the best quality and to avoid an over-production. From day one, transparency and a sustainable way or working have naturally been part of 1979´s core values.
MIX & MATCH
IN BETWEEN SIZES /TRY IT ON AT HOME
Buying swimwear online can sometimes be tricky, because usually each figure will into two sizes - one fitting a little tighter and the other a bit more comfortable in comparison.
Each person has a different preference, just like some like their jeans to fit more snugly and others like them a bit more relaxed. You can always message us for assistance with a size recommendation by mailing us your measurements (bust, under-bust, bra size, waist, hip circumference).
If you prefer to try both sizes nonetheless, we also offer to send you an extra size to try on without an extra charge within Germany.
This way you can try both sizes in the comfort of your home, only make the payment for one piece, keep the size you prefer and return the other one. We will provide with you with a DHL or DPD label that you can use.
