Swell Bottle Sizes

Are you looking for a stylish way to keep your cold water cold during hot summers? What about hot beverages hot during the upcoming fall and winter seasons? If so, then you should think about picking up a S’well bottle. Just make sure you choose the right size to maintain proper hydration when you’re out and about!

The original S’well bottles are available in 3 sizes:

  • 9 fl. oz. (266 ml)
  • 17 fl. oz. (503 ml)
  • 25 fl. oz. (739 ml)

In this guide, I’ll briefly explain the history of S’well, what bottle sizes area available, and what sets Swell apart from the countless other water bottle makers out there.

What Is S’well?

Although water bottles are everywhere, some people are willing to pay a little extra for fashionable bottles. There’s one company that has capitalized on this demand and has made a killing—S’well.

S’well is a water bottle manufacturer that focuses on sleek design and detailed design options. The $25 starting point for a basic S’well water bottle might seem a bit steep, but you certainly get what you pay for!

This water bottle company was started by Sarah Kauss, a Harvard Business School graduate. She grew frustrated with lackluster reusable water bottle designs and decided to implement changes on her own.

In 2010, Sarah launched S’well using $30,000 of her own savings. The business started off slow, with Sarah going door to door and pitching her product to retailers. A year later, in 2011, she received her huge break when S’well was featured in Oprah’s magazine, O. She took the magazine editor’s suggestion to increase the color options to heart, and just like that, S’well was a multi-million-dollar company.

Today, S’well is in cahoots with popular companies like Starbucks, Target, and Nordstrom in order to sell eco-friendly reusable water bottles with a twist. While countless copycats have sprung up following S’well’s success, S’well has maintained its higher-than-normal price tag and pushed the idea of quality and status with every bottle.

What Makes S’well Bottles So Unique?

What Makes S’well Bottles So Unique

Earlier, I mentioned that Sarah Kauss has not budged in her decision to keep prices high. A large portion of the steep price tag is quality—you get what you pay for! But what exactly are you paying for?

Triple-layered insulation

All insulated water bottles are layered in a way to keep cold drinks cold and hot drinks hot for longer. However, S’well’s promise to keep cold drinks cold for 24 hours and hot drinks hot for 12 hours is not something many brands can say with a straight face.

One of the most annoying things about keeping cold drinks in a water bottle is losing some of the coldness to hot ambient air. When humid air touches the cold surfaces of insulated bottles, the water molecules condense (a process known as condensation), thereby increasing the temperature of the container’s contents. 

S’well bottles combat condensation, so your fingers never end up slippery when gripping a bottle, nor does your drink increase or decrease in temperature over time (up to 24 hours for cold drinks and 12 hours for hot drinks).


Bisphenol A and S (BPA and BPS, respectively) are synthetic compounds that may have hazardous effects on humans. S’well bottles do not contain either of these compounds, ensuring safe reusability over the course of several years.

How to Wash S’well Bottles

Unfortunately, S’well bottles are not dishwasher-safe. The design on the side of the container may wash away when exposed to extreme temperature changes.

To wash a S’well bottle, dunk the container in a basin of soapy water and use a sponge to wash the inside and out. Rinse the bottle and let it air-dry for 3 hours or until it’s completely dry to the touch. You can also pick up S’well cleaning tablets to make cleaning your bottle a lot easier.
