OUR MISSION & WHAT MATTERS TO US
NEW: PLUS SIZES COMING IN JUNE!
Plus Sizes will be available starting the end of June! Get in touch about pre-orders or inquiries! We have been working on these last year and finally we have the first swimsuit in two Plus Sizes. Of course the other styles are planned to follow this summer also.
If you are interested in being a fitting model or model for 1979´s Plus sizes, please get in touch, we would love to hear from you!!
WE LOVE CURVES
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.
LONG LASTING QUALITY & TIMELESS LOOK
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.
SUSTAINABLE, ECO-CONSCIOUS & TRANSPARENT
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.
