After every use, the garment must be hand washed. Harmful elements such as suntan lotions, salt, chlorine, and body perspiration can cause discoloration and spandex breakdown. Since laundry detergents are too harsh on the spandex and the color, use mild hand soap made without added moisturizers. Do not wring the swimsuit to remove excess water. Lay it flat on a towel and roll the towel up and squeeze gently. Remove it from the towel and lay it flat to dry. Do not hang it to dry as that will stretch out the fibers in the fabric. Avoid using washers and dryers as damage can occur due to agitation and excessive heat. It is also important to let your suit "rest" between uses. This allows the spandex to bounce back (called recovery) to its original size and maintain its fit longer. If you wear a suit without letting it recover, it will lose its shape and fit more quickly. It's recommended to let the suit rest for 24-36 hours between uses. Always remove excess moisture with a towel and lay flat to dry indoors or in the shade. Also note, direct sunlight will fade your suit. It is always a great idea to have more than one suit.
Women with longer torsos often find it difficult to find a proper fit and style that flatters the figure while staying comfortable and classy. The Longitude® brand was made to fit that need, and evolved out of the well renowned Robby Len® swimsuit brand. Longitude® swimsuits use basic bodies such as one piece suits and skirted tankinis. The fresh, new designs have an air of sophistication, developed by using sleek, sharp, and classy solids & color blocks as well as big, colorful florals and tropical prints. Any woman with a longer torso will appreciate the fine attention to detail and contemporary styles of this brand.
I love all Longitude swimsuits because they give you a great silhouette (collecting unwanted bulges and making them somehow disappear)! The way to make them last longer... Do NOT wash the suit... Rinse well in cold water after swimming... Do NOT wring or put in a ringer machine. Wrap your wet suit in a towel and when you get home, hang it up right away. Another tip to plus size women - Longitude's Surplice suits make you look even slimmer! Also, if the suit isn't pulling you in right on top, sew the straps together in he back. My bottom is a 16, but my top is a 14!
Longitude suits fit me the best of all; I wear them year round for use in an indoor/outdoor pool (sodium not chlorine). Even though the backs tend to fall apart within a year and I can usually find them at Marshalls for $20, the last two years, I have not been able to find them so I resorted to paying more on-line. I will save this suit for use at the beach, only, not use it at the pool.
