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.

Beautiful but extremely delicateThis is a beautiful suit. I had been staring at it on the site for quite a while before purchasing it due to the price. Then it went on sale! I was thrilled. I tried it on, and it's going back. The suit has amazing bust support, but I wasn't thrilled by the lack of any body shaping. Totally willing to ignore that and wear a sarong.... However, this suit was made in lace(gorgeous!!!), and the suit I received already had multiple pulls and the edges already looked fuzzy and worn. It even comes with a tag letting you know to wear with care because the fabric snags easily. I just don't think the suit will last very long.
