Hi! My name is Poppy and this is my little business: TallPoppy - a play on the term "Tall Poppy Syndrome". I hope my swimwear makes you feel empowered to stand tall in your uniqueness, and not let anyone cut you down!...because let's face it, none of us were born to be the same as everyone else!
I'm a Fashion Designer by trade and have worked as a designer in the surf/ fashion industry for over 15 years. I had always dreamed about starting my own label, and in 2015 I did. The TallPoppy brand was created out of my personal desire for stylish looking and better fitting swimwear that was practical for women to surf in, ....fast forward to now...and here I am!,
creating exactly what I wished for and in a sustainable manner - BONUS!!!
Combining vintage surf inspiration with sustainable technology, each style of mine is designed with quality, comfort and function in mind.
The lycra that I use is a cutting edge, sustainable fabric that uses the latest yarn and knitting technologies. This lycra is made with 100% regenerated nylon and polyester fiber from post-consumer waste such as carpets, clothing and fishing nets.
This superior lycra is even more chlorine resistant than your average swimwear fabric and it's UPF 50+. Now you can't ask for much more than that, which makes TallPoppy a sustainable, ethical choice for the eco-fashion conscious.
I design and make all styles from my home studio in Currumbin, on Yugambeh Country, aka Gold Coast, Australia.
If you have any queries, please don't hesitate to ask me via the Contact tab.
For example, if there is a style on my website that you want, but can't find it in the print that you like, send me a message and I can most probably make it happen!
NOTE: Once you place your order, please allow for 2-3 business days for me to make up your order.
Thanks for supporting my little business!
Oceans Of Love Poppy xo
