Swimsuit Care

Caring for your new swimsuit 
Our swimsuits can last several years with the right care. If you want your new swimsuit to have a long life, always hand wash your swimsuit in cold water, using a mild dish soap. The dish soap helps break down oils and lotions. Never put your swimsuit in the washing machine and never wring it out. All swimwear fabric is delicate and made of nylon with tiny elastics that will break, deteriorate over time in a spin cycle, stretching out and weakening the fabric. Always wash your swimsuit after every use, especially after being in a chlorinated swimming pool or hot tub, and then lay flat or hang to dry.

Avoid sitting on or leaning up against abrasive surfaces such as pool ledges and anything with velcro, as these things will snag your swimsuit. If you get a snag, you can use your fingernail to scratch the back of the fabric behind where the snag is. This will usually pull the snag out.

Although we use the best fabrics available on the market, the brighter colors will naturally fade faster than the darker colors.
