Welcome to Violet Lake London! 

The brand is the brainchild of Ursula Lake (pictured right) who has been working as a Fashion Editor for more than 15 years. She has worked on a number of different publications throughout her career from Vogue and InStyle Magazine to Net-a-Porter's Edit magazine.

The idea of Violet Lake had been in Ursula’s mind for a long time but in 2010, after an exhaustive and disappointing search for the right bikini, she finally decided to design her own line. She felt there was a real lack of well fitting, flattering luxury bikinis in quality fabrics that weren't extremely expensive.


“I would find a style of bikini that I liked, but hate the colour or the fabric it was made in. Additionally I would find that the top half of bikini would fit me but the bottoms wouldn’t. The clasps would get hot in the sun, break easily and were seemingly impossible to do up on your own. Bikinis with clasp fastenings do not allow for a variety of ribcage sizes and often provide a poor fit. Bikini tops designed with bra cup sizes in mind always seemed to look like you were wearing your underwear on the beach! You wouldn't tell a woman to buy her bra and knickers in a dress size set, so why should you have to buy a bikini that way? It seemed bizarre that there wasn’t more choice in this area when after all, it’s as naked as you ever are in public!”

The concept behind Violet Lake Bikinis and Swimwear is simple; there are ten different styles of interchangeable bikini tops and bikini bottoms and all of these come in five different sizes and in fifteen different colours. Uniquely, all the bikini tops have tie fastenings so that you can really fit them to your body and make them as supportive as you need them to be. The colours have been chosen so that they harmonise with at least two others within the range, so you don't have to conform to wearing the same coloured top and bottom and allows you to create a unique ensemble, in fact there are literally thousands of possible colour and style combinations! We also have four styles of one piece luxury swimsuits that are available in nine different colours.


These classic and timeless bikini are fully lined and made of the best quality swimwear fabric,  Italian Jersey Lomellina, which is very soft and has an elegant matt finish. This material is the same fabric that is used by most luxurious swimwear brands, but sold here at much more affordable prices.

Thumper;

New for High Summer 2016 are these cute tie-side bikini bottoms (we have named them Thumper as the tie sides remind us of rabbit ears!) These simple bottoms look great with our new Bambi top but will also co-ordinate well with our classic designs like the Ryder and Plenty too. Our model is wearing a size 1 in these photographs. 

We'll ship your order as soon as we can, subject to payment authorisation and stock availability. We aim to send out all deliveries within 48 hours of receipt of payment. If we receive an order before midday on any working day we will dispatch the item the same day. On Friday's orders need to be made before 11.00 am to meet our courier deadline for the next day service. If you need your order in a hurry, we offer a next day service, but we do need to recieve the order by midday in order to get this out to you. Please select the next day service at the checkout, this also applies to any orders made on Fridays which we can send out for a Saturday delivery if the order is recieved before midday (UK time) 

Delivery in the UK is made with the Royal Mail Signed for Service, so you will need to insure that they will be someone to sign for the parcel, or it will get sent to your local post office for your collection.

Pre-ordering 

If you have pre-ordered an item, we will send you an email to let you know the estimated date of dispatch.  Unless you notify us, we will keep any other items that you may have ordered at the same time, to be dispatched with the pre-order item when it arrives into stock. 

We'll do everything we can to make sure your order arrives on time, but please allow for any adverse conditions which might affect deliveries in your area, such as extreme weather or postal strikes.

Delivery outside the UK 
We strongly recommend using the DHL option when ordering items from outside of the UK as this is the most reliable and quick service. The Royal Mail International Service is un-trackable once the parcel has left the UK and from our experience, it can often take from 10 days to three weeks for delivery. Please give as much detail as possible in the address section including Postal Codes and Country names.

We make our swimwear from Italy’s finest Jersey Lomilena, which is both durable, soft and should last you several years.

 

There are some things you can do to keep your Violet Lake items looking their best for even longer.

 

Rinse well after use and in the case of white or paler coloured items you might want to soak in some washing detergent after use if you feel the items have come into contact with a lot of sunscreen products. On darker items you might see 'bleached out' marks on the item if they have come into contact with sunscreen, however these come out with a machine wash at 40 degrees without fabric conditioner.

 

We have found that our white and navy and white stripe products may become yellow with prolonged use with certain sun care products without a proper machine wash in between uses.  This can be rectified in most cases by use of a biological detergent or something like Vanish with your wash. We do recommend that you don't let the stain get ingrained in the items. This can happen if the items are not washed out properly after use or left rolled up or stored anywhere airless for any length of time. The problem can then be made worse by the chemicals in swimming pools or jacuzzis.
