About Our Swimwear:
How Will I Know My Size?
Our size chart will match you to the best size based on a few simple measurements. We also include user reviews that can help you understand the fit of the suit on similar body types. Still not sure? Call or email email@example.com or 678-631-9665.
How Do I Measure?
Use a soft tape measure with inches or if you do not have a tape measure you can use a piece of string and a ruler. For the string and ruler method you will just want to wrap the string around yourself as described below and mark where the string overlaps with your finger. Then lay the string flat next to a ruler to get the length in inches from the end to where you are marking with your finger. Exhale as you measure so your body is relaxed and at its natural state and make sure the measuring tape or string is snug but allows you to breathe and move normally. You will need to collect the following measurements:
Bust: Around the bust including the breast apex (nipple) while wearing a bra with light cup padding
Waist: This should be your natural waist so above your belly button, below your rib cage and if you were to bend to the side it is where the crease forms. Remember to exhale and then take the measurement and the tape measure or string should be snug but not tight.
Hips: Around the hip (down where you will be measuring around your booty) while wearing very light weight underwear
Upper Thigh: Around the top of the leg. measure under the buttock at the crease where the buttock meets the leg
What Fabric are Your Suits Made of?
We use Italian made high-quality blend of nylon and spandex fabric to provide a wonderful feeling and high performing swimsuit. This blend holds up well in sun and salt water so your suit will maintain good color and shape for years. The fabric is anti-pilling and chlorine resistant as well and provides excellent UV protection. Oh and it feels like butter on your skin. Pretty much the next best thing to skinny dipping.
How Do You Offer Support without underwire?
We use the latest in fabric technology and use a unique sewing technique with 3 layers of fabric for smooth support where you want it the most. We also use sewn in cups for several styles where indicated to provide extra lift and support. Our fabric is the highest quality of nylon and spandex to provide the most comfortable swimwear with the coverage and support you want in classic silhouettes.
How Do I Wash/Care for my Swimsuit?
- Hand wash or machine wash on gentle cycle with cold water.
- Do not bleach
- Do not tumble dry (lay flat and reshape or line dry)
- Can use low heat iron or steam setting as needed
- Can be dry cleaned
When Will You Release a New Collection?
Our initial 4 piece collection (Bandeau Bikini, Bandeau Tankini, Cheeky Bottom and Racerback Monokini) is built to provide foundational pieces for your swimwear wardrobe. This collection focuses on fit, function, and comfort in basic shapes. We will add new collections with different styles and shapes and release new colors to our existing collections throughout the year to offer on-trend and stylish pieces that can effortlessly mix with basics for a robust swimwear wardrobe.
