Getting a nice piece of sports swimwear is an investment in our love of swimming. To keep it in prime condition for as long as possible is ideal, but to do so requires a little bit of effort on our part. These tips will help you keep your swimwear in tip-top shape for longer.
1. Chlorine Resistant Swimwear
When you have swimwear that offers high quality materials and durable cuts to begin with then it is going to naturally last longer. In the long run investing in better swimwear will save you money, because it does not deteriorate as quickly as swimwear of inferior quality. All AMANZI Swimsuits are made from AMANZI Armor Chlorine Resistant Swimwear Fabric which has been designed and milled in Italy.
2. A Swimsuit for Every Activity
Having separate swimwear for the hot tub, beach, sun bathing and athletic swimming is a good idea. The first three activities mention on that list are particularly hard on swimwear materials, so maybe consider having swimwear you don’t like as much on hand for those activities. For sports swimwear always choose chlorine resistant fabrics like AMANZI Armor.
3. Multiple Swimsuits
Rotating swimsuits between swimming sessions allows the material of the swimwear to dry and recover between swim sessions, so that the material of the swimwear will stay like-new for longer.
4. Rinse and Wash with Every Use
Rinsing and hand washing your swimwear after every use can make all the difference. Bacterial, chlorine, salt water, etc. all break down the materials of the swimwear. The sooner you can wash the swimwear once you are out of the water, the better.
5. Lightly Wring Out
If you must wring out your swimwear after washing it do so very lightly. It is best just to let it air dry indoors.
6. Washer or Dryer
Even if your washer has a hand wash cycle chances are that it is rougher on it than you would be with your hands. As for the dryer, just NO, don’t do it.
7. Avoid Rubbing Against Rough Surfaces
Sitting on concrete, the blocks, pool deck etc. all are abrasive on the material. Swimwear is for swimming not for sitting anyways! Speaking of rough surfaces next time you see AMANZI Girl Laura Dennis sitting on rocks at the beach (like she is above) be sure to tell her that it’s a huge no no!!!
