Tips For Extending the Life of Your Swimsuit
There’s no better feeling than finding the perfect-fitting swimsuit for an upcoming vacation. At the same time, nothing is worse than spending money on something that doesn’t last much longer than said getaway. A good swimsuit not only needs to fit well, feel supportive, and stay in place when worn, but it should also be durable enough to last season after season (if you’re looking to make a good investment, that is).
Experts agree that the longevity of a swimsuit depends on a few factors: the material, the frequency in which you wear the style, and how often you’re submerged in chlorine (during the summertime, we imagine that’s quite a bit). Since extending the life of a new suit starts even before you buy it, we enlisted the help of a few swimsuit designers and pros to help guide the way: Gionna Nicole of Avid Swim, Brittany Kozerski Freeney of Jade Swim, and Alissa Bristow of L*Space. Here are their recommendations.
