Hand wash only, separately in cool water using a mild detergent.  Do not wring, soak or bleach. Drip dry in the shade. Do not use a tumble dryer. Do not leave damp and rolled up. Rinse thoroughly after each use. We recommend that you do not wear your best swimsuit in spa baths, as it could cause damage.

Our chlorine resistant range is suitable for swimming pools but still rinse thoroughly after each use. Fake tanning products and some sunscreen lotions may mark and damage swimwear. Femme de la Mer recommends taking extra care when using these products and always ensure they are completely dry before they come in contact with your swimsuit.

Sand can get trapped in swimwear. To remove the sand, ensure the swimwear is fully dried, then shake out excess and gently run your fingernail over dried swimwear fabric where small particles of sand may remain.

Avoid contact with rough surfaces as this may cause pilling to swimwear.
