About Us

The perfect swimsuit for a party wave

An experienced ocean lifeguard and lifelong beach lover, founder Jillian has always been in search of her ideal swimsuit—one that looked and felt high-end, stayed put in the waves, and didn’t cause a maze of tan lines. Her search eventually led her to create Bay 2 Swimwear, a unique swimwear line inspired by her experiences living and working on the beaches of New York City.

Minimalist and inclusive

Our seamless, no-frills approach to swimsuit design allows us to focus on what matters most: comfort, wearability, and quality fabrics. We ditched the trendy ties, itchy tags, and impossibly high cuts in favor of simple styles that inspire confidence. The end result is a high-end line of active-chic swimsuits that look good on all shapes and sizes.

Keeping the ocean blue

The team at Bay 2 Swimwear passionately supports environmental and small business initiatives. Whenever possible, materials and labor are locally sourced, and packaging is made from recycled paper.
