About us

Paparina is an ethical and sustainable brand designed and made in Portugal.

The name means poppy in Sicilian dialect and is dedicated to our founder's father.

Our pieces are made in our atelier in Setúbal.


Our swimsuits are designed and tested to fit different body types from every ethnicity in the world. Tall or short, skinny or curvy, we believe every body type is naturally perfect and women should not have to adapt to swimsuits, swimsuits should be adaptable and adjustable to every body.

All our swimsuits support heavy breasts without the need of using cups or underwires, our straps come in different thicknesses and are removable and adjustable to meet the needs of every costumer.

Our swimwear materials are recycled or upcycled.


Our beachwear is designed to make you feel free and comfortable, every piece is oversized and comes in many sizes. We make shorter and longer lengths in our beachwear to meet our customers needs. Materials like organic cotton and bio linen are the stars of our beachwear collection.


Our materials are upcycled, which means we are reusing leftovers from big factories. This makes our lace and embroidery very exclusive, so in every collection, every piece is a limited edition.

Our lingerie is now available with cups from A to D and with band sizes from 30 to 40.

Plus Fit bras are coming soon and you can get cups up to cup G.

We make fittings by appointment in one of our stockists or at our atelier in Setúbal.

Paparina fits every woman, doesn't matter your shape or weight. Every body is naturally perfect, you are naturally perfect.

Nightwear & Loungewear

We use silk, cupro and italian wool in our nightwear and loungewear collection. Our silk is certified and this year we introduced cupro, which is made from cotton waste fibers. Our wool jumpers are hand knitted by mum Paula with italian virgin wool.
