A good swimsuit can be an asset to any wardrobe, yet with frequent exposure to sun, salt, chlorine, perspiration, beauty products and more, the swimsuit’s colours and shape are susceptible to deterioration. Special attention is needed to protect one’s swimsuit in order to keep it looking its best and there are several steps one can take to ensure a swimsuit keeps its features bright and its shape and elasticity optimal. Taking care of a swimsuit is not difficult, and can extend its life considerably.Follow these steps and you’ll be able to enjoy your beautiful swimwear for many years to come.
BEAUTY AND THE BEACH designer swimsuits are made using only the finest imported fabrics and trims that are extremely delicate in nature. While some of the suits are able to be worn in the pool or ocean, they are still not intended for strenuous physical water activity or long periods of time in heavily chlorinated water. Other suits have been specifically designed as competition or pageant wear and should not be worn whilst swimming.
How to Care for BEAUTY AND THE BEACH Swimwear:
- We recommend that you rinse immediately after use.
- Hand wash in cold or lukewarm water.
- Use mild soap or a very mild detergent.
- Do NOT wring, soak or bleach.
- Do NOT tumble dry.
- Drip dry in shade.
- Do NOT leave rolled up.
- Do NOT iron.
- Do NOT dry clean.
- Avoid contact with rough surfaces as this may cause pulling to swimwear.
- We use the best dyes available; however we cannot guarantee total colour fastness on some colours. The best way to avoiding fading of colour is not to keep your swimsuit in the sun for prolonged periods of time and to let it dry in shade after washing. Hot water and chlorine may also speed up the fading of swimwear.
- Fake tanning products/oils and sunscreen can mark and damage swimwear. BEAUTY AND THE BEACH recommends taking care when using these products and always ensure they are completely dry before they come in contact with your swimwear.
- Showering before putting on a swimsuit does much to eliminate substances that cause deterioration, including dirt, perspiration, oil, body lotion, perfume, deodorant, and make-up.
- Bathing suits should not be hung to dry, since water collecting at the bottom can stretch the fabric.
