8 Women’s Divewear Brands You’ll LOVE

8 Women’s Divewear Brands You’ll LOVE

If there’s one thing you’re guaranteed to see on a boat full of Girls that Scuba, it’s a sea of incredible colours and prints. Our group members – and our Girls that Scuba Trip guests – LOVE their fun swimwear and divewear. And who are we to gatekeep the brands that they’re loving? Here are some of the best women’s divewear brands, as worn and loved by our members.

If you’re looking for whale shark swimwear, fun scuba diving swimwear, or colourful rashguards, you’re in the right place!

1. Waterlust

Waterlust are a long-standing Girls that Scuba favourite, for very good reasons! They create unique prints which are adapted from photographs and inspired by marine environments and creatures. Not only that, they also donate to a project related to the print’s inspiration for every single piece sold. These causes vary from coral conservation and parrotfish protection to sea turtle research.

Waterlust’s environmental efforts don’t end there, either. Their recycled materials are all constructed from post-consumer waste plastic bottles. The resulting fabric feels significantly thicker and more substantial than a lot of other scuba base layers.

Their leggings and sunsuits feel like something between a lycra layer and a thin neoprene base. This makes them ideal for layering under your wetsuit, or even wearing alone in more tropical climes! Our community loves how versatile and long-lasting their pieces are, and of course, they look amazing too.

Finally, Waterlust’s sizing is another huge tick from women divers. Their sizes go from XS to 3XL, and their thorough size guides show the styles on lots of different body types. Waterlust also have an easy-to-use size calculator. You can plug in some simple stats (no tape measure needed) to gauge what size you might be.

2. Spacefish Army

If size inclusivity and psychedelic prints are top of your list, you need to be shopping from Spacefish Army for your scuba baselayers! These styles are sure to get you seen on the dive boat, with an abundance of octopus-inspired prints (amongst other creatures) and kaleidoscopic colours.

Spacefish Army’s range of rashies, leggings, shorts, and more, are also constructed from recycled fabrics. They offer UPF50, and their leggings and shorts now have added pockets – and who doesn’t love a pocket?

Spacefish Army’s pieces can also be worn above the water for any active hobbies, thanks to their super-stretchy fabric. This means you can take your love of the ocean into the gym or on a hike!

3. SlipIns

SlipIns are best known for their incredible full body skins. They also create leggings and long sleeved swimsuits, amongst other styles, all of which allow the wearer to “slip in” to their wetsuit with ease.

Their bold prints include inspiration from blue ringed octopus, coral groupers, whale sharks, eagle rays, jellyfish, and so many more.

Whenever anyone asks our community about the difficulties of getting into a wetsuit, SlipIns are sure to be found as a recommendation in the comments. If you’ve ever struggled wrestling yourself into a 5mm suit, you need to check out SlipIns!

4. SeaMorgens

If you’re looking for the best swimwear for scuba diving, look no further than SeaMorgens. Owned by two ocean-loving sisters, their figure-flattering styles and marine inspired prints are a Girls that Scuba favourite.

Two women face away from the camera showing the back of their SeaMorgens swimsuits - one white and blue with printed ocean creatures, the other black and grey with a shark tooth print. They are sitting on the bow of a large boat.

SeaMorgens swimwear, rashies, and leggings are all made from ECONYL® regenerated yarn, making use of waste products such as plastic bottles and ghost fishing nets. The resulting fabric is incredibly strong and hardwearing, and our community members love how long lasting their styles are. A number of their prints support projects such as coral conservation and ghost net removal, too. 

Few brands put as much thought and customer feedback into their swimwear as SeaMorgens. They are constantly asking their customers for their thoughts on designs. As a result, they create super flattering styles with features that women really want. 

Three women lay on the top of a dive boat with their heads towards the camera and their feet extended away from the camera. They are all smiling in the sunshine wearing matching SeaMorgens women's divewear, with manta ray silhouettes printed in blue.

As divers, we also love that many of their designs don’t feature any clasps or ties – no more pesky bikini knots pressing between your BCD and your back!

5. Girls that Scuba Divewear Collection

We couldn’t leave out our own women’s divewear now, could we? If you’re looking for the ultimate whale shark divewear, we’ve got you covered with the Girls that Scuba Divewear Collection.

Our signature whale shark print is much-loved by our members, and we’ve now made it available on a small capsule collection. These rashies, leggings, tops, and shorts are printed on demand to reduce waste. You can also go full matchy-matchy, with our range of whale shark accessories. Additionally, most of the collection is available up to size 6XL.

The collection is also on the more affordable side of divewear, with all items coming in under £50. With a subtle Girls that Scuba logo, you can represent your favourite women’s dive community AND your favourite big spotty fish, all at the same time!

6. Batoko

If we could pick one word to describe Batoko‘s swimsuits, it would be fun. These aren’t your typical marine life prints though – think bold, graphic line-drawings of your favourite ocean creatures in bright, eye-catching colour combos. Even land based and extinct creatures aren’t off the inspo list, either. T-rex swimsuit, anyone?

Like all our favourite women’s swimwear and divewear, Batoko also have strong eco-credentials. Their swimsuits are made from recycled materials. In addition, they consciously focus on a small collection to reduce consumption. We love that their sizing goes up to 3XL, too!

7. Blue Adaptation

Designed by a divemaster, Blue Adaptation’s ocean-inspired prints feature some of the most beautiful patterns the underwater world has to offer. If you prefer a more toned-down style for your divewear, you’ll also love the understated style of their eagle ray and whale shark prints.

Their swimwear, rashies, leggings and more are created in super flattering styles which are sure to work for many body types. Above all, we love that their products are created with the environment in mind – even down to the shipping materials. 

8. Rewild Swimwear

Lastly, but by no means least, we have Rewild‘s capsule swimwear collection which is inspired by stunning British ocean wildlife. It’s also created in the UK. Their supportive and sun-protective styles feature seals, sharks, and even adorable puffins.

Like many of our favourite women’s divewear brands, they’re also made from eco-friendly recycled fabrics. In addition, they even create zero-waste scrunchies from leftover scraps. We particularly love their long-sleeved swimsuits – they’d be perfect paired with shorts for a warm water dive!
