To ensure long lasting quality we recommend the following:
- Hand washing your swimwear in fresh cold water as soon as possible after wearing. Squeeze out the water, don't wring, and leave out in the sun to dry afterwards.
- If the swimwear has been exposed to chlorinated water, handwash using a mild soap. Chlorine that is not washed away with soap can eat away at your swimwear and degrade the fabric.
- Do not machine wash with machine detergents (these are too strong for swimwear fabrics). If you are to use a detergent to hand wash your swimwear we recommend a gentle detergent with no moisturisers, or a gentle detergent specifically formulated such as The Lab Co they use natural plant derived and biodegradable ingredients).
- Avoid crushing or flipping the cups inside out as this will affect the shape of the cups.
- Make sure your swimwear is completely dry before storing.
- If possible, limit exposure of your swimwear to sunscreen, tanning cream, and chlorine. While our fabric is resilient to these products, it can still damage and discolour swimwear if constantly exposed to them.
- Be cautious of rough surfaces as this can cause pulling and snagging in the fabric.
- Avoid wearing your swimwear in hot water such as hot tubs. Spandex will disintegrate quickly (usually around 8 weeks) when worn in a heated pool twice a week for 30 minutes each session.
