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!
I have another suit that I purchased last year and I love it. Since I left one of my suits in FL, I needed to replace it. I like the way the longuitude suits fit me. Im a size 20 so feeling comfortable in a suit is important to me
Like the color. It looks like it may be slimming look because of the black band going from the shoulder to the hip. Also like the idea of the powernet to help hold in my stomach. Hope it is what I want when I try it on!
does foil in suit wash well? Never wore suit with foil. Can't see it in photo. Does the foil break down after repeated washing? Is the foil more visible wearing the suit in person? Thanks for the answers. I will be swimming in the suit, not just sun tanning around the pool.
Best Answer:I bought six of these longitude suits because they it so well. I used the suit for swimming in pools and sunning. Suit does not have a shiny foil look, in fact it just looks really nice. I have used two suits this summer, washed them both a few times in my washing machine and they came out really nice. I did not put them in the dryer. Just let them air dry
This graphic print does not contain any foil - it was an error. However, fabrics which do feature foil result in a shimmering, eye-catching affect that is incorporated into the overall graphic design. The foil application does not wear down or disappear after wash - the shiny foil remains vibrant.
This swimsuit incorrectly stated that it featured foil trim, when in fact, it does not have foil accents. We made the correction on the product page. We apologize for the initial error. This suit would be perfect for swimming & lounging!
I usually wear this suit swimming in the lake. It washes very well. I am not sure what foil (?) you are speaking about. I have washed this suit numerous times and it is still in awesome shape. I hope this helps.
