How to care for your swimwear:
Once you’ve wrapped up your day beachside/poolside it’s important to thoroughly rinse or wash your swimwear immediately. Doing so will wash away any chemicals or salt that can harm the swimwear fabric. Read the manufacturer's care label on the garment to ensure there are no warnings to avoid.
It’s important to keep in mind:
Retailers will allow a return on swimwear provided the hygiene sticker is still attached and in its original condition.
