FOR ENVY | GOTTEX AT FOR ENVY | ABOUT GOTTEX
Through technical innovation and use of cultural influences, Gottex has turned his collections of swimsuits into iconic fashion pieces. From one-piece bathing suits to tankini and bikini sets, Gottex has the perfect style for women of every age and size. The hidden underwire, tummy control lining, and soft cups provide support and comfort.
Founded back in 1957 by Tel Aviv's Lea Gottlieb, Gottex has provided women with innovative swimwear that serves to provide the ultimate in both comfort and support.
This focus on innovation drove the company to be a pioneer of swimsuits with hard-cup bras — and even made Gottex into the first manufacturer to introduce Spandex! Gottex swimsuits are flattering, glamorous designer swimwear with a long history of innovation that served to suit the many beautiful body shapes of many beautiful women from Elizabeth Taylor to Princess Grace and Princess Diana...and beyond.
Just as Ms. Gottlieb originally envisioned, Gottex swimwear allows you to move from pool to the bar, then to cocktail party or dinner with glamorously relaxed confidence and impeccable style.
Gottex flaunts on-trend colors while adhering to a unique understanding of stylistic techniques that flatter a woman’s body. Gottex blends and shades the line between functional swimwear pieces and bold fashion statements —and empowers women to feel and look as beautiful as they are.
From Palm Beach to St. Tropez, the Maldives to Cabo and all the sun-soaked destinations in between, Gottex has remained a power presence in the swimwear industry, chosen again and again by celebrity stylists, shoppers and women of indisputably good taste.
Gottex Swimwear excels at providing women with the latest styles as well as ultimate comfort by focusing on construction. Looking good doesn't necessarily make something last, so how is it that a Gottex swimsuit lasts years longer than any other? The answer: Everything is in the fabric! Gottex is exceedingly generous with Lycra, using 28% Lycra while competitors skimp at only 13% to 15%.
Gottex test a huge range of fibers and never switches to anything new without thoroughly testing each sample first. No matter how expensive or rare a fabric is, Gottex will use it if it makes the swimsuit more luxurious and durable. It is this steadfast dedication to quality that has pushed their reputation forward for so many years.
