Check the labels

Ideally, you should always read the instructions on the labels, as care will depend on the material the swimsuit is made of.

It is best to wash swimsuits immediately after each use, either at the beach to remove the sand and sea salt, or in the pool to remove the chlorine that can deteriorate the fabric.

Two options for washing

  1.  If it is by hand, fill a suitable container and add a mild detergent, lather slightly, rub gently and rinse with plenty of water.
  2. In the washing machine, they should be placed in a bag and put in a gentle washing cycle.

Dry in the shade

For drying, swimwear should be hung upside down, in the shade, and in an airy place.

In the case of a bikini, wash and hang both pieces together.

It is not recommended to use the dryer, as heat can damage the garments, cause them to shrink or discolor them.


To ensure that the swimsuit is kept in good condition, it is important to be careful when it is being worn: check that there are no items that can get caught in the fabrics (nails, ornaments, rings, among others).

Investing in timeless pieces and taking care of your swimwear will make it last longer.
