BLACKFISH SWIMWEAR

At Blackfish we think every woman deserves to feel their sleekest, sexiest best in their swimsuit, whether they're striding down the beach or diving in the deep end.

So we have taken a fresh look at swimwear and designed a cool contemporary alternative to the traditional swimsuit.

Blackfish swimwear gives you an instant flattering fit so you look and feel sexy and streamlined.

THE BLACKFISH STORY

The gift of an Olympic swimsuit and a car accident were the inspiration behind Blackfish.

Lisa, the founder of Blackfish, got into swimming while trying to get active again after a car accident. Having broken almost all the bones in her legs and spent four months in hospital and and learnt to walk again, she finally left hospital.

The surgeons had a few parting words of advice:  “No more running, your knees can't take it and no skiing, don’t break your legs, we can’t fix them again.”

The solution was swimming.

“I love swimming, but when you don't look in shape and you're full of metal, missing ligaments and your joints are creaking, it’s hard getting your body back out there. It wasn't until I was given an Olympic swimsuit that that all changed.”

As soon as she put it on she was blown away.

"I looked amazing, I was completely stunned. I couldn't believe I could put on a piece of clothing and look this good.  My first thought was, how come this is just for elite athletes, why can’t we all wear this kind of kit?

“I’m just a regular woman with an average middle aged body.  It was such a boost to feel so sleek and streamlined. I loved it and wore it and wore it.  In the back of my mind though, was always the thought, why can't we all look and feel like this in a swimsuit?"

Lisa quickly went from one length to 50 lengths.   But Olympic swimsuits are made for use in a couple of competitions not for regular swimming, so  she set about designing her own range.

All Blackfish swimwear uses top of the range Italian compression fabrics to give you that same streamlined, sleek, instant flattering fit but in designs made to last whether you swim for leisure or fitness, or if you just want to lie on a lounger! And all ethically manufactured in the UK. 

Blackfish swimwear will transform how you feel in a swimsuit.
