Wash advice:

• Wash your swimwear by hand in cold water using washing detergent for fine fabrics
• Rather use the washing machine? Use a bra bag and wash your swimwear with a detergent for fine fabric and select a delicate washing cycle
• Don’t use any fabric softer as this increases the chance of the colours fading
• Pay attention to details such as applications. If you can remove these its good to do so before washing
• Never use the tumble dryer for drying your swimwear. Just have it air dried without wringing it before hand

Prevent discoloration or damage:

• Always rinse off your bikini with cold water after wearing it. Sunlight, chloride and seawater can cause discoloration
• Put on sun tan lotion half an hour before wearing your bikini or bathing suit as sun tan lotion can cause your swimwear to discolor
• Are you planning to visit a water park? Wear and old bikini! The rough surface of the slides can damage your swimwear
