Who We Are
Lauryn and Ashley met at the Fashion Institute of Technology, where they collaborated during their senior year. They launched 5B Swim in 2018.
Our journey is our adventure. Our goal is simple, bold pieces focused on confidence and comfort to empower our babes with each wear. Our promise is to create an environmentally conscious brand for a sustainable future by reusing scraps and sourcing sustainable materials. As we reach this goal, we are continuously learning and growing.
Each piece is made with love by Lauryn in Brooklyn, NY. With care and attention, 5B swim and sport is made for comfort and confidence.
About Our Fabric
All of 5B Swim & Sport is made with Carvico Vita Nylon, featuring ECONYL® regenerated nylon made from our ocean’s wastes and landfills.
The process starts by rescuing waste like scraps, industrial plastics, fishing nets from our oceans and landfills to be sorted and cleaned to recover all of the nylon possible. Through the regeneration and purification process, the nylon is recycled back to its original purity. This regenerated nylon is then made into yarn for fabric, like your swimwear and sportswear. Infinitely recyclable, without ever losing its quality.
