Beanie and bear childrenswear

Welcome to Beanie & Bear!

We’re a London based business on a mission to provide you with covetable beachwear for your little beach bums.

Beanie & Bear is brought to you by Noya Bebawi, graphic designer, children's illustrator and mother of 2 ("Beanie" and "Bear"). Noya decided to start the ASS (Anti Saggy Swimwear) movement having spent one summer too many feeling like there wasn’t much to choose from unless you were happy to put up with bland ill-fitting swimmers for your little one’s bums. 

The range features a carefully crafted collection of high quality bikinis and tailored trunks and a new one piece swimsuit in a range of bold colours and playful prints. Beanie & Bear's swimwear is instantly recognisable with a focus on perfect fit and an emphasis on quality and durability. With a cut that channels the 70s and a touch of eighties neon.  The signature neon trim not only looks amazing, it continues to be one of the most effective ways to be able to quickly pick out the Bean and the Bear on a busy beach.  


Designed to be mixed and matched to deliver endless combinations with bags of character and attention to detail the 2016 range builds on the acclaimed 2015 launch introducing new colourways and prints as well as the new one-piece swimsuit.

Inspired by the tropics, the 2016 palette is a riot of colour awash with shades of blue and yellow combined with zingy orange and hot pink. The age catered for has been extended and now goes from age 3/4 up to 11/12.


The obsessive focus on perfect fit and the emphasis on quality and durability continue to be at the heart of everything that Beanie & Bear does.  UPF 50+ quick dry fabrics are used wherever possible making sure that as well as looking good their skin is safe in the sun. All materials are ethically sourced. 


"I wanted to bring together the aesthetic of great adult swimwear with a sense of the playful that will appeal to little people. This has been as much about bringing a vision in my head to life as it has been a family production from start to finish.  My children are the inspiration for the collection and have been my (mostly) willing models as well as testing the swimwear to destruction.  My husband is our photographer and has captured all our location and studio shots. I am super proud of us all!”


Beanie & Bear are proud to be completely designed and made in London with Love.
