How do I care for my swimsuit?

Lycra (also called spandex) can be damged by pool chemicals and oil residues. To improve the life of your swimsuits always rinse your suit in cold water, immediately after each use. Do not wash your suit with detergent and avoid the washer and dryer. Hang it to dry in a well-ventilated space.

Another tip! When putting on your suit, pull gently on the fabric. Pull the suit up the body in stages, rather than pulling it on in one big yank.

Swim Caps: Silicone, Latex, & Lycra. What’s the difference? And which one is right for me?

Silicone caps are gentler on the hair than latex. In addition, silicone caps are a thicker material with greater stretch. They are also more durable and can last longer than latex or lycra.

Latex are lighter in weight than the others, and also have a tighter, more perfect fit. However, they can pull your hair more than silicone.

Lycra caps are similar to a swimsuit material. They are comfortable, but are used more for just keeping hair out of your face than creating a water barrier.

So, for practice and recreational swimmers we recommend silicone. For competition, we recommend latex or silicone. Lycra is especially good for ladies aquatics, although some recreational swimmers prefer them as well.
