In perhaps one of the most iconic Bond girl scenes of all time, a bronzed Ursula Andress emerges from the sea, sunkissed and glistening. Her ivory bikini looks as if it was made for her, the flirtatious little bow contrasting perfectly with the rugged edginess of the belt and the dagger dangling from it. The audience went wild, and for good reason. Copycat designs sprung up everywhere as women tried to emulate the confidence, the verve, the glamour… This is precisely what good swimwear does for you: it makes you feel like a bad*ss bond girl walking effortlessly toward the shore, skin as golden as the sand. Well aware of this transformative power of a well-designed swimsuit, Blankkini has made it its mission to create pieces that make you feel and look your absolute best. With its state-of-the-art fabric technology, it is revolutionizing the face of modern, cutting-edge, smartly-designed swimwear.
Perhaps what is most compelling is that the swimwear is far from skin-deep. Blankkini believes in the idea of the perfect swimsuit experience, which means that not only do you look your best, you can move around and have fun knowing that the clothes are doing everything they are supposed to. The unique fabric technology has been curated carefully by collaborating with top design experts from Italy, Canada, England, the United States, Germany and France, to come up with smart, innovative solutions to common issues that are seen in most swimsuits.
The most notable of these is Blankkini’s unique tan-through technology. Ask any Beach girl her biggest fear and she’ll name 2 without batting an eyelash: Great White sharks and those unsightly white tan lines. With the tan-through fabric, you no longer have to wiggle straps and maneuver your swimsuit to get a perfect, uniform tan. Unlike traditional swimwear fabrics, which don’t allow sun rays to penetrate, Blankiini’s patented fabric allows 73% of sun rays to pass through, so you can get that gorgeous golden skin without worrying about the hard-to-reach bits. And the best part? It is designed in a way which allows only the rays that cause tanning (UVA rays) to pass through. The other, more harmful UVB rays are blocked. This also means that you can select whatever level of coverage you prefer, without worrying about uneven tanning. Trust me on this one: Leave the tan to Blankkini, and you focus on having fun.
We’ve all been there—you order a cute bikini online to wear to your next beach outing. But when it arrives, it fits you all wrong. The piece that looked stunning on the model is, frankly, doing nothing for you. Here’s the problem with most swimsuit materials: with their high nylon/polyester content, not only are they terrible for the environment, they also have limited elasticity. More often than not, the sizing just doesn’t include every body type. Blankkini’s Smart Fibre technology is made of Blankkini yarn in lieu of polyester, making it 20% more elastic, so that it hugs your curves and fits you exactly right. This means that no matter what style of swimwear you prefer, ill-fitting pieces are no longer an option; there’s a Blankkinni out there for everyone.
Each design begins as a unique concept, carefully hand-picked by Blankkini’s talented team of artists and designers. The prints are chic and avante-garde, inspired by Israeli block prints. And speaking of prints, Blankkini’s high pressure printing technology penetrates the thread and colors the fabric inside out. It is truly a class apart from other brands, who often opt for surface screen printing, which simply doesn’t compare. The finished garment is then laser cut to perfection, making it fit like second skin on every woman who wears it. With its impressive catalogue of styles, including bikinis, halters, bandeaus, monokinis and many others, it seems the only issue you may face would be being spoilt for choice.
Summer is almost here, and there’s no better time than now to give your beach style a trendy, tan-friendly makeover. Whether you’re a bond girl or a beach bum, opt for swimwear that doesn’t need to be returned or altered—because it looks and feels just that good.
