Topaz Swim- Capri Cupped Bikini (Navy Sparkle)
Where It Began Founder Natasha Griggs, created the brand after noticing a gap in the market for luxury, stylish and practical swimwear pieces. The mission has always been to redefine the swimwear market by creating unique designs made with premium fabrics in sustainable ways. Swimwear is a very personal thing, feeling sexy and beautiful isn't always easy for everyone, especially when wearing minimal clothing. Finding a bikini or a one piece that has been handcrafted with the finest fabrics and is extremely flattering was a rare find, hence Natasha creating Topaz- with the ambition of inspiring and to uplift women and their views of themselves
"I believe all women, no matter what shape or size, should feel sexy in swimwear. I wanted to create something that would empower all women and allow their confidence to shine" states the Cheltenham based designer and founder.
Topaz truly wants to set themselves apart from the crowd, creating innovative products in inspiring means, whereby every aspect of the brand has been well-crafted and thought out. Slow fashion is valued and rather than following trends, at Topaz we we create garments that you'll still love in 10 years time. The name alone has a back story. The stone Topaz, is a dispeller, strengthener crystal- in short, meaning that it soothes, heals, stimulates, recharges, re-motivates and aligns the meridians of the body. It is known as the stone of love and good fortune. Which in a roundabout way, is what Topaz stands for. Natasha has always had an avid interest in crystals and naming a brand ,that she is truly passionate about, after the crystal that supplies people with joy- just felt fitting

What Sets us Aside From the Crowd?
Good quality VS Low quality swimwear isn't only about how the pieces fit on your body. Yes, the fit is unmatched between the two, the bespoke design work of high quality swimwear is always going to look and feel nicer on your body and it goes without saying that this is a major part of the process but at Topaz all aspects of high standard swimwear gets analysed in order to create the best garments.
The colour of Topaz's swim range doesn't budge.
Cheaper swimwear isn't chlorine resistant. If you've ever owned cheaper swimwear and worn it in a swimming pool consistently, you may have noticed that the colour fades and dulls- this annoyance doesn't happen with Topaz. The better the calibre of the fabrics, will ensure that no amount of chlorine within swimming pools will tarnish the appearance of the swimwear. The fit is more comfortable This isn't just in reference to the aesthetic and visual of the bikini but also the comfort aspect. Lower quality/value swimwear often will sag or fit poorly, causing discomfort or irritability. This doesn't happen with Topaz. Careful Consideration We work hard to source the most luxurious fabrics which are of the highest quality. Made to last and desirable to wear. We work very hard to source these luxurious fabrics by attending our annual visits to trade shows and being able to visualise all of our options. Topaz prides itself on producing desirable swimwear, with the best fabrics, garment construction and attention to detail. We can assure you that every aspect of each piece has undergone excruciating consideration. Each design is individually designed and unique to the brand Sustainability comes first At Topaz the 3 Rs are always at the forefront of everything we do- Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. Not only do we work extremely close with the manufacturing team to ensure each bikini is delicately handmade, but even the packaging is carefully considered too.
