Extra Tips:

  • Rinse your swimwear after each wear with clean water. Be sure to rinse your swimwear after wearing even if you have not been swimming. The heat from the sun can cause deterioration in the fabric just like chlorine and salt water.
  • Do not store your swimwear in a plastic bag. If moisture gets into the restrictive space in can cause damage to your swimwear or cause mildew.
  • Alternating swimwear and allowing garments to rest for 24 hours after each use will preserve the elasticity of your swimsuit and help keep its shape.
  • Avoid using your best swimsuit in the hot tub. The extreme temperatures and harmful chemicals will cause faster fading and stretching. If you can, wear old swimwear when using a hot tub. If you cannot avoid using your best swimsuit then be sure to wash it as soon as possible after getting out of the hot tub.
  • Let your swimsuit dry naturally in a shaded area. Never dry your suit in the dryer or in the sun. Both of these will cause a faster deterioration of your elasticity and color.
  • Try to sit on a towel when possible in order avoid contact between your swimwear and rough surfaces, such as the edge of a pool. This can harm the material and damage your swimwear.
