Welcome to Beanie & Bear
We’re on a mission to create covetable beachwear for your little beach bums!
Brought to you by Noya Bebawi, graphic designer, children's illustrator and mother of 2 ("Beanie" and "Bear"), we started the ASS (Anti Saggy Swimwear) movement in 2015 after spending 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 ones.
Our collections feature beautiful bikinis, tailored trunks, one piece swimsuits and, new for 2017, rash vests. All come in a range of bold colours and playful prints with a focus on perfect fit and an emphasis on quality and durability.
Our swimwear is instantly recognisable. The cut channels the 70s and there’s a generous touch of eighties neon. The signature neon trim anchors the collection and remains one of the most effective ways to immediately spot your Bean or your Bear in a crowd.
The range is designed to be mixed and matched to deliver endless combinations with bags of character and attention to detail.
POP is our 3rd collection and it features all the key Beanie & Bear design cues. The range is epitomised by the Pop print which draws its inspiration from pop art, patches, pins and superhero chic. New print Lollies fits in perfectly with the graphic pop art theme bringing a fresh and distinctly minty angle. Joining them is the new Aqua stripe – a modern twist on a nautical theme. Fire Engine Red is our new block colour and the icing on the cake is the Buddy - a completely new line this year. This rash vest joins the Beanie and Bear family in response to demand for a piece that offers even more protection from the sun’s rays.
The obsessive focus on perfect fit and the emphasis on quality and durability continue to be at the heart of everything that we do. 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.
