We're changing it up and slowing things down a bit.
We’ve made the decision to stop mass producing swimwear.
Yep, Bombshell Bay is going 100% custom-made.
Why, you wonder? Well, there are a few reasons, but sustainability is at the top of the list.
Custom-made products ensure that excess stock of unordered sizes and styles doesn’t exist; this reduces unnecessary waste of stock that just isn’t moving.
Yes, it might take a touch longer to deliver your piece, but slow swimwear is sustainable swimwear and to us, that’s worth it.
What Does This Mean For Our Customers?
Well, we’ve heard from some of you that we end up out of stock of the styles and sizes you want before you’ve had the chance to buy, so custom-made helps to ensure that your perfect suit is available to you.
When you design your own suit or rash guard, you get to choose swimwear that suits you to a t (pun intended).
Mix any top with any bottom, in any size, and in any print or colour combination. Customize right down to the lining.
For years we have been making custom surf suits and rash guards so the system is now a well-oiled machine; it runs pretty perfectly.
Our suppliers and production partners are on board with this on-demand method of production, which is fantastic (they’re pretty ace).
How long does it take to receive my order?
When things get super busy, your order is likely to take 4 weeks, so please keep this in mind when making your purchase. In some cases, our “jump the queue” service may not be feasible depending on the complexity of your order. If you’d like to skip the line, simply add a note to your order and we will get back to you about fees and feasibility.
If your product is already sustainable, why only go custom-made? Won’t you lose customers?
Yes, our product is completely sustainable and cleans up our oceans at the same time. That said, the fashion industry is extremely wasteful and although we do sell most of our products, certain sizes and styles get left behind from time to time.
Our priority is to reduce the amount of waste we create and by only making a product we know we will sell, we can be confident we will be one of the industries most sustainable brands.
Yes, we will probably lose the last-minute vacation shoppers, but in the name of keeping things green (the earthly kind of green), we are willing to make this sacrifice.

We get a lot of questions about our Sustainable Swimwear
Are There Any Extra Costs?
Cost-wise, nothing changes for you or for us.
Since we are not spending a tonne of cash on stock that does not move, we are able to maintain our current pricing.
