We're Balance.

Balance swimwear is made for all lifestyles and bodies. Our pieces are designed to stay put in the whitewater and look great during your beach nap. We pair our swimwear with guided meditations to help you develop lasting self-love habits that make your days at the beach as renewing as they should be.

We hope that Balance swimwear not only makes you feel good, but also connects you to a community of women who enjoy living their lives in the sun.

Our Beginnings

Balance was born from my love for the beach, and from my belief that swimwear should bring joy, not anxiety. After graduating from college, my work in the art world prompted a move from New York City to Kingston, Jamaica, where I fell in love with the culture, in particular the love that people had for the beach. It was in Jamaica that I made my first attempt at designing swimwear, taking my patterns to local seamstresses. After moving back to New York, I continued taking design classes at FIT (while still working a 9-5). I also became a trained meditation teacher under Dr. Joe Loizzo, specializing in Loving-Kindness or Metta practice. It wasn't the traditional fashion designer's path and it wasn’t always easy but it inspired me to build what Balance is today.

Our Process

Balance swimwear is designed and manufactured in New York City’s garment district by workers that earn a fair wage. The fabric is sourced from Italy and printed in the USA. We chose Italian lycra because it looks and feels great on your body and also holds up to wear and tear like a champ. It’s UV and Chlorine-resistant and made from recycled yarns, too.
