Named after Sullivan Island in South Carolina, this is one of three mesh tops that are part of our collaborative mesh collection with Radimo‘s Dannielle Owens-Reid. Dan’s love of mesh was the inspiration behind the collection combined with our quest for awesome androgynous cuts and fits that can compliment any Outplay lover. The Sullivan is available in low and high compression options for that extra bit of security and comfort.
About the name Sullivan, Dan says, “My home is on Isle of Palms and right across a little bridge is Sullivan’s Island – this is kind of the marker, like I get to Sullivan’s and I am like OK I DON’T HAVE TO STOP TO PEE I’LL BE HOME IN TEN MINUTES. It’s like the ultimate going-home-landmark. It’s not a beach that I spent much time on as a kid, but my first crush lived on Sullivan’s and my favorite job was on Sullivan’s. There’s a kid I’ve known since they were 7 years old – they’re like 50 now or something I have no idea how kid ages work. REGARDLESS, they’re from my hometown, I’m close with their whole family, and we’ve kept up with each other a bit over the years. They sent me a message a few years ago to be like ‘omg you’re wearing a bow tie I love it” and started to explore dressing more masculine. And then a year or so ago a message saying that I really inspired them to figure out their identity. They started going by Sullivan and it kind of made the island and the name mean even more to me.”
When picking a size, we recommend you use our size chart for guidance. Our sizes aren’t exactly like other traditional clothing brand sizes. If you’re looking for maximum compression and you fall between sizes, we recommend you go with the smaller size. Remember, this is not a binder, it’s a compression top designed and made to swim and be active in.
