Exposing The Best Swimwear Manufacturers

I didn’t think we would ever have to write an article exposing deceptive business practices of swimwear manufacturers wishing to promote their websites with misleading titles such as, “The 10 Best Swimwear Manufacturers in the world” or, “A Breakdown of The top 5 Swimsuit Manufacturers in Bali, Los Angeles, and Miami.”  The reviews of these top swimwear manufacturers are not genuine or credible.

We’re reluctant to speak out but have an obligation to protect and inform those who may be interested in starting their own swimwear collection. You’re probably wondering why we would write such an article since we’re swimwear manufacturers too. Good Question.  For one, we’re in a position to do so because we’ve been in the swimwear business longer than most – 3 decades!  We’re one of the first family owned swim companies to offer custom swimwear manufacturing services to start-up brands.

But first, a little about us before we discuss what to really look for when finding a swimwear manufacturer. We’re a family-owned swimwear manufacturer that has been in business since 1967.  Hundreds of swim brands from around the world have trusted us to create their Eco-luxe swimwear label.  From sample creation to bulk production, we take care of the entire process seamlessly.  Our vast experience in wholesaling swimwear dates back to the late 80s when we began focusing on white labeling and private labeling swimwear.  Our eco-friendly fabrics, quick turnaround, accessible prices, and fanatical support have impressed thousands of customers over the years.

Let’s come back to exposing how companies use fake swimwear lists and reviews to promote their website without linking to custom swimsuit manufacturers.  In a way, the same can be said of this article but we lay it all out in a transparent way for you to better understand the process and help you make an informed decision. 

To begin with, let’s say you want to create your own swimwear collection. Where do you start?  If you’re like most, you’ll turn to the Internet and begin your research by typing specific key phrases such as, swimwear manufacturing companies, swimsuit factory, bathing suit manufacturers or best bikini manufacturers. These commonly used terms will provide you with dozens of different swimwear manufacturers.

Any of these searches will display a plethora of websites but how do you know which ones are credible, how does one go about selecting the best swimsuit manufacturer based on your specific needs? For starters, the right manufacturer needs to offer high-quality fabrics, speedy turnaround times, low MOQs and of course be budget friendly. Here are some tips:

  • Start by finding a reputable swimwear manufacturer. There are a lot of swimwear manufacturers out there, so it’s important to do your research and find one that has a good reputation for quality and customer service.   Decide on your target market. Who are you designing swimwear for? Are you targeting young women, mature women, or a specific body type? Once you know your target market, you can start to develop your designs and source manufactures that reflect your company vision.  For instance, that they be designed and produced from sustainable swimwear manufacturers or that they are eco friendly swimwear manufacturers.  Other characteristics could be that they are ethical swimwear manufacturers, or that they have the production capacity to produce extreme, sexy or micro bikinis.
  • Be creative and unique. The swimwear market is crowded, so you need to create swimwear that is both stylish and unique. Don’t be afraid to experiment with different fabrics, colors, and styles.  Incorporate your personal story into the branding. 
  • Price your swimwear competitively. Swimwear can be expensive, but you don’t want to price yourself out of the market. Do some research to see what other swimwear brands are charging for similar products.
  • Market your swimwear effectively. Once you have your swimwear line created, you need to get the word out there. You can market your swimwear online, in print, or at trade shows.

Once you have a good idea of what you want, a list of manufacturers would appear outlining their core services.  Up until now, we’re okay with this but not when they don’t reference websites with direct links to their websites.  It can be misleading, especially if they don’t including original photos taken and paid for by the manufacturer. Also, saying that you’re the best is subjective. Based on what criteria are you the best?  Here are some points to consider when screening and deciding who to work with: 

  • Experience: The manufacturer should have a proven track record of producing high-quality swimwear.
  • Capabilities: The manufacturer should have the capacity to produce swimwear in a variety of styles, sizes, and quantities.
  • Location: The manufacturer should be located in a country with a strong textile industry and a skilled workforce.
  • Pricing: The manufacturer should offer competitive prices.

So a list of the top ten best swimsuit manufacturers may look something like this, with names but no direct links to their website.

To Summarize.

Some of the best wholesale and private label swimsuit manufacturers are located in Brazil, particularly Mar Egeu, due to Brazil’s beach culture and natural beauty. Brazilian bikinis are renowned for their quality, unique styles, and vibrant prints. Many manufacturers falsely claim to make Brazilian swimwear, but it’s essential to choose a trustworthy one. Mar Egeu stands out with 30+ years of experience.  They offer high-quality fabrics that include UV 50+ sun protection and comply with all labor laws. They offer wholesale, private label, and custom design options, are family-owned, are eco-conscious, budget-friendly, and provide exceptional customer support. With relatively quick turnarounds and worldwide shipping, Mar Egeu is a reliable swimwear manufacturer to partner with.
