FAQ


General

In production, a small batch run is typically used to describe a collection that is exclusive & limited. All Tai Swim collections are between 150-300 units, creating minimal impact on the earth with using as little energy sources as possible. The exclusivity keeps Tai Swim special, & opens the doors for better feedback & on-trend adaptability.

Right now, Tai Swim is only available on Oahu in local boutiques in Kailua. Check out our retailers list here.

Tai Swim uses natural dyes made from plants (not chemicals) in all our swimwear. All our tags are recyclable & have been given second lives. All our packaging used is made from post-consumer waste. We distribute locally by bicycle (Tai rides her bike to her wholesale vendors & orders to make deliveries, seriously!) to reduce the pollution created from traveling by car or plane for shipping. The swimwear industry is horribly unsustainable, & every effort counts toward cutting down on water usage & using fabric made from biodegradable fibers. We're working on it. In the meantime, here's a great article on why your swimsuit is not sustainable enough.

Tai Swim collections launch 1-2 times per year, with a small capsule collection for special holidays & events. Sign up for our newsletter to be the first to know about collection drops.

Absolutely! I am always looking for new faces & bodies to rock Tai Swim! Send us an email at info@taiswim.co or reach out via instagram DM.

Sizing

If you're in-between sizes, definitely size up in most tops. For bottoms, they all fit true to size & should fit the same as whatever your normal size is.

All Tai Swim fits true to size, & on the cheekier side for bottoms. See our size guide for more info & check out our size table below.

31.5 - 33

Shipping & Returns

Nope! All Tai Swim deliveries will be shipped out on time as always, most likely same day! I am lucky that my operation is very small & I am able to fulfill orders from the comfort of my house. Should you have any questions about delivery times, check out our shipping policy or send us an email at info@taiswim.co for specific locations.

In the unlikely event that your suit was damaged in transit or damaged upon arrival, shoot us an email at info@taiswim.co so we can sort it out for you!

Absolutely. We want to make sure you LOVE your bikini. If it doesn't fit, you can exchange it up to 10 days after receiving your item. See our exchange policy here.

Your order should arrive no later than 10 days after you have made the purchase. Average orders in Hawai'i arrive after 3 days, & in the contiguous United States, about one week. Your order will likely be shipped out the next day, excluding Sundays when the Post Office is closed. Please see our Shipping Policy for more info.

Check out our how to guide on washing your bikini.
Take it right into the shower with you after the beach! Or washing with cold water in the sink always works too. Do not put your Tai Swim bikini (or any bikini for that matter) in the washing machine, EVER.

Tai Swim suits are very limited & small batch. Once something is sold out, it’s gone for good. In special cases, I may have some photoshoot samples or extra suits laying around — feel free to reach out to tai@taiswim.co & we can find that bikini for you!

Tai Swim is made from durable nylon spandex that does not require padding for most tops. However, if you prefer padding, we do make tops that come with them. My number one favorite padded top is the Starr Top.

It's simply THE BEST! It means that there isn't that annoying strip of spandex digging into your skin when you're trying to tan. There is no visible seam from the inside or outside of the bikini. This also makes most of our swimwear reversible. If you accidentally wear it inside out, nobody will notice!

Yes, for samples & initial designs. All bikini samples & pre-production designs are hand-sewn on Oahu in Hawai’i. For the final collection launch, I make those suits out of the state to ensure on-time collection drops, highest manufacturing quality & responsible production.

Yes! Tai Swim suits all feature seamless stitching, so the suit to be reversed in many ways. This makes the bikini much more comfortable than the average swimsuit. Some suits reverse to a different color allowing for multiple looks in one beach day.
