The Right Swimsuit for Your Body Type
Swimsuit Care Guide
Chlorine, salt water, sunscreen, sand, and sweat can take a toll on your swimsuit. A little TLC will make it last longer.
1. After each wearing, turn the suit inside out and hand wash it with a mild detergent in cold water.
2. Rinse the suit well and gently squeeze out excess water.
3. Lay it flat to dry, away from direct sunlight.
