Today is Bikini Day!
Today, July 5th, is Bikini Day.
Did you know your bathing suits are made of delicate fabrics which require special TLC. Caring for your suits properly ensures that they will maintain their shape and look their best time and time again. Your swimsuit faces a lot of ‘dangers’ throughout the day: your natural body’s oils, suntan lotion, chlorine, saltwater, etc. And let’s not forget about where you lounge. These lightweight fabrics tend to snag easily. Coverups are great for both style, limiting sun exposure AND protecting your swimwear.
Here are a few tips to keeping your bikini (or trunks) looking their best:
- If possible, try to rinse off after taking a dip in the pool or ocean.
- After your day in the sun, use a gentle solvent to clean your suit. (They sell special cleaning solutions for swimwear and other delicates.)
- Pat your swimwear with a towel and allow to air dry. Wringing can stretch out the fabric and distort the shape.
While these tips may take a few minutes, isn’t it worth the time in protecting your favorite swimwear pieces?
