Swimwear Tips & Tricks

  • Do Try On Lots Of Styles New swimwear styles and trends arrive every summer, don’t be afraid to try out something new. You might end up finding a new look you love!
  • Don’t Size Up – Swimwear tends to stretch and expand when it gets wet, so to ensure a flattering fit stay true to size.
  • Do Opt For Adjustable Straps And Ties – If you’re wanting a perfect fit, look to styles which you can adjust to comfortably fit you. Detachable straps are always a win for sunbathing.
  • Don’t Dry Swimwear On Washing Lines – To maintain your swimwear avoid hanging it out to dry on a washing line, especially by the straps or ties! This can stretch it out, and ruin the shape. Instead lay it out to dry over a towel.
