Fierce & Feminine.
At Wet Leopard we create high fashion, sun-conscious swimwear tailored specifically for the female body. Crafted with sculpting performance fabrics and innovative manufacturing, we have engineered and patented the first underwire bikini vest to deliver optimum support, comfort and UPF50+ protection in a tailored second-skin fit. US patent 15/566243
Born and raised in Australia, we know that Aussies love comfort and quality. That’s why we designed all of our swim-vests right here, ensuring ‘It’s All About the Fit’, while choosing the best Italian Nylon Lycra® that is eco-friendly, durable and unlike neoprene, it’s breathable! These ‘smart’ fabrics provide 50+ sun protection and even know when you’re hot or cold, intuitively adjusting your temperature.
Our signature built-in underwire and gloss zippers support and sculpt the female figure, making the swimwear as functional as it is chic. From snorkelers in the Great Barrier Reef, to our pro surfers at Bells Beach, our swimvests have been tried and tested for countless hours in the Aussie sun. So the verdicts in… We dare you to find a better rashguard this summer.
Why we do what we do!
We love spending our days at the beach engaging in outdoor activities, but we’re also aware of the risks associated with over-exposure to the sun’s harmful UV rays. Wet Leopard aims to inspire and help those most at risk of skin cancer (women aged 18-45) by designing and manufacturing fashionable UV swimwear to protect their skin.
Australia has one of the highest rates of skin cancer in the world and it is the most common cancer affecting young Australians. Skin cancer currently affects two out of every three Australians and many more internationally. Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the United States. The good news is that it is estimated that nearly 95% of skin cancers can be prevented through reduced exposure to ultraviolet rays UVR.
