To keep your new bikini in the best possible shape, avoid sitting on or up against rough surfaces- keep a towel handy and your bum comfy!
After a dip in the ocean or pool, hop in the shower and rinse off. Freshwater is the trick to keeping colors vibrant. Swimwear is not made to be thrown in the washing machine; instead, hand wash your bikini with mild soap or a soap specifically made for swimwear like this one in cold water.
Avoid laundry detergent and soaps containing moisturizers, they are incompatible with swimwear fabric.
Line dry or dry flat, do not wring, twist, hang or iron. Hanging swimwear can cause it to stretch out as the water will congregate at the bottom of the piece.
Word of Caution
Always avoid contact with oils, tinted sunscreen, and heavily chlorinated pools. Some colors may bleed, avoid mixing light and dark colors when washing.
