Behind The Scenes: Tavik Swimwear

Posted by Bikini Owner

Tavik Bikini

Modern swimwear is so amazing — can you believe that swimsuits used to be made of wool? It's hard to think, when we scan the market and see how incredibly engineered the suits are these days, from technical fabrics that look chic and perform amazingly to cuts and silhouttes that push the boundaries of what we thought was possible. Tavik suits are a prime example—this collection is super-modern and wearable, chock-full of fun and functional detailing.

We're always excited to see what designer Carly Powell cooks up for their new collections each season and were especially excited to chat with her team about what makes the brand tick. Our Q&A below should explain why they're a swim brand to watch right now. 

BIKINI: What is the ethos of the brand? 

TAVIK: Après beach. The entertainment, nightlife, or social events that occur after a day in the water. 

BIKINI: What sets the swim silhouettes apart?  

TAVIK: We offer a wide variety of silhouettes with styles that range from seamless one-pieces, triangle and strapless tops paired with minimal to full-coverage bottoms, while also offering more supportive pieces with hidden underwire for sizes up to a D cup. In

BIKINI: Who is the Tavik woman? 

TAVIK: The Tavik girl grew up in beach culture, follows trends yet follows her own inspiration trail. Her wardrobe is a mix of classics, statement pieces, and functional garments designed for a premium experience. 

BIKINI: In terms of cut, fit, and fabrics, how does it feel to wear a Tavik suit?  

TAVIK: Tavik suits are designed with a clean yet modern aesthetic. Fit is extremely important to us, and so much attention to detail goes into every suit. All our swimwear is made in California, which allows us to work really closely with the factory, and we are able to go through many rounds of fittings before production to ensure a perfect fit. On the cut and fabric side, we design our suits with clean-finished seams to give you a very smooth, defined and flattering look. Through the use of fluid, buttery fabric, our suits mold to your body and won’t fade over time, plus all of our swim styles are self-lined, making them super comfortable. Season after season, all of our solid colors match back to at least one of our custom designed prints, so it’s easy to mix and match styles. We also offer three different coverages in several of our bottoms, which allows customers the ability to find their ideal fit.
