The Design Principle

  • Swimsuits made by women, for women
  • Swimsuits support A-DD cup sizes
  • A high leg style avoids cutting over the hips and lengthens legs
  • Double lining in all swimsuits & triple lining in the coral creates a comfortable, supportive swimsuit & avoids any possibility of sheerness. 
  • Made with love, in Cape Town

What The Customer Says

I received my pink beau bikini this morning and wanted to let you know that I absolutely LOVE it, but more importantly, I wanted to let you know how much I appreciated seeing the bikini on curvy bodies I can actually relate to.

The Name

Shades of Jade

This brand is a creative expression based on my passion and inspirations. Jade is my second name, giving it a strong personal meaning. 

Jade is a beautiful crystal stone that has strong healing properties. It is known to transform negative energy into positive energy and this is something that has been a strong message within my swimwear brand since its launch in 2020. Buying and wearing swimwear can be a negative experience for many women and this brand was launched for those who struggled to find their perfect fitting, stylish and comfortable swimsuit (who knew this even existed?!). 

The message behind the brand – and brand name – is for all women to feel comfortable in their swimsuits and look fabulous at the same time ! I aim to turn a negative experience into something empowering and wonderful! 

The crystal, Jade, also represents renewal which refers to our use of ocean plastic and recycling it into beautiful fabric for swimsuits. 

In addition, Shades of Jade refers to different variations. Not necessarily the green colours of Jade, but rather moments, personalities, and emotions. There is a swimsuit for every moment, every “Shade of Jade”.
