Tilia Rose Swim is a UK based swimwear brand developed with active women in mind. The collection contains boyish prints and sporty cuts for every shape and size.
We work with real women to inspire freedom within performance and confidence in whatever activities they want to pursue. We don't see why anyone should be held back by what they wear therefore we have created a brand that will support you from head to toe.
The current collection has been inspired by fierce animals and travelling the globe. This range contains loud shark prints, dreamy mountain tops and wild footprints.
where it all started
Tilia Rose Swim was created by Tilly Rand-Bell after travelling Australia and Asia . She worked in a surf shop and began to wonder why practical yet interesting swimwear wasn't seen as much in the UK. Bored of the same patterns and colours on offer for women she questioned why men's boardies wern't the same.
'Over the last few years I have become increasingly frustrated with the type of swimwear available for women. I find that it is often not suited to the practical demands of my activities such as surfing, rock jumping or wild swimming. Rarely does swimwear reflect who I am as a person so I have decided to do something about it and created Tilia Rose Swim'
Just real people
All of the models have a story, they all do a sport and they are all real people. No one has been made to look smaller or curvier, they have moles and bumps and bruises because we think that's pretty cool.
We choose women on their enthusiasm and love for being active not on the way they look. All of the models are role models and not just something to show off the pieces.
Tired of hearing that there is a type of ' bikini body' so are we, so we are here to show you that you are all beautiful however you choose to show it

All about going natural
We care a lot about the environment and therefor are part of a positive process that is attempting to clean up our seas. As a swimmers, surfers, and just general beach goers plastic pollution is something we witness everyday on our beaches.
The collection is very small for a reason. By introducing pieces at a slower more sustainable rate its much kinder to the environment and the people who make them. We can also focus on each design making them the best they can be. The stock will grow just at a slower pace.
We are using recycled and sustainable materials wherever we can. Our products are vegan and cruelty free and come in pretty biodegradable, compostable bags! This year all of our new swimwear will be made from old fishnets and plastic washed up on the beach so keep a look out. Its important to us that our office space is free from waste and the team all feel responsible to keep it this way. No plastic cups here!
Every season support
Swimwears for every season not just for summer... Going on holiday? what about the pool, maybe you love a cold water swim, or simply enjoy the comfort of a bikini under your clothes. British girls need swimwear all year round so as a company we do our best to make sure we still ride the waves, sell the swimwear and get adventuring even in the snow. We support every type of activity, going skiing? take us with you. Be brave and jump in that ice bath or maybe you just fancy a dip in a hot tub. Whatever it is we have you covered.
