A playful new take on the tuxedo!
A smart tuxedo front gives way to a deliciously deep scoop back. There is a flattering white panel on the front with buttons and a cute black organic cotton bow. The fabric used is eco-lycra, made from recycled fishing nets! It’s a lovely soft and stretchy fabric that is very durable, keeps its elasticity better than standard lycra and does not bobble.
Each swimsuit is handmade to-order in our Bristol studio. Please select a size from the drop-down list, or select “made-to measure” and include the following measurements in inches in the notes section at the checkout:

Notes on sustainability: Eco-lycra is a way of re-purposing plastic that would otherwise end up in landfill or littering the oceans (a large proportion of the plastic used is from end-of-life fishing nets.) Unfortunately, as with any other polyester fabric this does still generate microplastics when washed, but shedding would also have occurred had the nets been left to float the oceans. (You can read more about eco-lycra here.) The bows are made from organic cotton. The buttons used are purchased in batches second-hand, so they may vary VERY slightly from leotard to leotard.
When it comes to sustainability, there are pros and cons with all fabrics and all production methods, but at BangBangCrash we aim to always make the most sustainable choices available, and ensure that you as a consumer are as informed as possible. As with all our garments, production takes place in Bristol using energy from renewable resources.
