It was hot outside. HOT. When we hit record temperatures and we feel the itch to go outside, the beaches and pools are calling us. And if you’re going to buy a plus size swimsuit, then you have to show it to California-based swimwear brand Alpine Butterfly.
Created by Olga Phillips in August 2017, Alpine Butterfly was created after she realized JUST.HOW.DIFFICULT it was to find cute, trendy and functional swimwear for her niece. It became Olga’s mission to “Let’s start a brand that makes women of all shapes and sizes feel sexy, included, and represented.”
All right, Aunt Olga! This care and consideration is greatly appreciated.
From there, Alpine Butterfly was inspired by “Self-love, authenticity, and body positivity.” We all need aunts like this, don’t we? Alpine Butterfly brings us high-quality swimwear that delivers on fashion, form and function.
Instead of telling you all about it, let us show you a selection of our favorite Alpine Butterflies from their newest ones. Are you ready?

Even better? Alpine Butterfly takes steps to stay as sustainable as possible. They share their process on their website:
“By releasing small, limited edition collections, we have the opportunity to always design exciting new styles for you, while remaining committed to an ethical zero-waste practice.”
They go into more detail about their process on About us Page:
“Every collection is made to order with limited quantities of fabric. This means we’ll start sewing your vest at our local studio in Los Angeles once you’ve completed your purchase. All of our products are lovingly cut and sewn by our in-house staff.
Since we buy a finite amount of fabric to avoid wasteful overproduction, once our pieces are gone, they are gone forever. Our collection sells out quickly, so we recommend shopping now if you love something.
We are dedicated to treating all of our employees with the highest degree of integrity by maintaining our manufacturing operations locally. We are also committed to adopting sustainable, zero-waste production methods. “
You can buy the full collection right now at AlpineButterfly.com!
