Good Quality Ladies’ Swimsuit

 

A good quality ladies’ swimsuit is an investment and you want to ensure you care for it correctly to get maximum life out of your swimwear.

Unfortunately, harsh irritants such as chlorine, sun and salt water arevery hard wearing on your swimsuit and when proper care isn’t followed your swimsuitisn’t going to last.

Thankfully we have some tried and true methods to help you take care of your swimwear and get more than just a season out of yourfavourite swimsuit

1. Shower first:

Whenyour swimsuit first gets wet is when it’s most likely to soak up unwanted chemicals. So, if you take a quick rinse (with chilly water, sorry!) in a shower with fresh water while wearing the suit, that initialsoak will block the chlorine-treated water in the pool from damaging your suit. It might sound crazy, but itworks, and your swimsuit will last longer!

2. Rinse after:

Never leave your swimwear to sit and dry while covered in salt or chlorine as this causes the suit’s fabric to retain those harsh elements.Make sure to rinse your suit in cold water immediately or as soon as possible after removing it.This will prolong the life of the fabric and keep it looking great for longer.

3. Hand-wash it.

It is tempting to throw your swimsuit in the washing machinewith all your other washing butlike good quality lingerie it’s important towash your suit separately by hand. Use cold water and a gentle soap or detergent, and make sure to massage thoroughly to avoid excess soap residue. (Leftover soap can be just as harmful to the material as salt and chemicals, so this is imperative.) Warm wateropensupthe fabric’s fibers, so the colder the water is, the better.

4. Hang or lay to dry. 

The heat from a dryerwill damage thelycra your swimwear is made with just as much as the sun andwill cause this unique fabric to lose its shape. To avoid either of these potential problems, hang your suit to dry or lay it out on a towel and don’t store in an enclosed space like a beach or laundry bag as this can contribute to mildew growth.

5. Rotate

Rotate  your swimsuits, and always have one ready. If you really like oneswimsuit we recommend buying two so you always have a swimsuit ready to goas the fabric needs time to recover from wearing and washing so rotating your swimwear often is the key.To ensureany newswimsuit is ready to be worn for the first time, try rinsing it in a water/vinegar solution beforehand (onelitre water and one tablespoon white vinegar).This helps to keep the suit’s dye intact, and it can help give you peace of mind when adding another new suit to your wardrobe. After all, there are sogorgeous swimsuits you don’t need to limit yourself to just one – youcan have a wardrobe full!!

We do make chlorine resistant swimsuits which are more hard wearing against the elements however implementing a proper care routine when it comesto your swimwear is essential and still needs to be followed even with a chlorine resistant swimsuit.
