Customer Care FAQ'S!
What Is Sustainable Swimwear?
The thing that makes sustainable swimwear truly sustainable is that it’s a closed-loop process. Our fabrics can be regenerated again, and again, and again for infinity without ever losing their quality. That means nothing of your swimsuit will ever end up in a landfill….ever!
And Why Are You Making It Now?
Up until now Sustainable Swimwear fabrics have only really been available to brands who order enormous quantities of it. It’s also more expensive than regular Lycra. Why would we want to make normal swimwear when we can help our oceans!
What makes this Swimwear so Sustainable?
Humans use plastic for everyday items from pens to razors, plastic bags, bottles and other synthetics and It’s a sad fact that a lot of this plastic end up in our oceans. There’s an army of people who dive it out, they are literally saints because it's not only dangerous it's takes a long time to do. They then pass it onto some magicians who process it, perform some kind of magic on it and spin it into yarn.
This is then woven into the fabric we use to print on to make your swimwear. If you check out "our process" in the menu we go through step by step on how the process works.
Is Sustainable Swimwear fabric good quality?
Our sustainable swimwear in no way sacrifices quality or performance. In fact, side-by-side to a traditional swimsuit, you couldn’t tell the difference. That’s because the fabric we use is just like traditional Lycra. We use only the best, Italian Carvico Vita.
The quality is incredible, just as good as the original lycra that we know. it's also fully lined and UV50+
How do I care for my Sustainable Swimwear?
The same as you would for any other swimwear. NEVER, EVER put it in the washing machine. EVER.
Hand wash cool water, dry in shade.
Does Sustainable Swimwear fit the same?
Yes, sustainable swimwear fabric is exactly the same fit as regular Lycra. In fact, if you want us to get all technical on you, it’s actually “flatter” so it sits on the body a little better.
Does Sustainable Swimwear stretch or fade?
All swimwear stretches. The good stuff (like the stuff we use, has 2 way stretch) it snaps back into place after being worn. Over time all swimwear will stretch after use, however we still have pieces from our first collection that are in excellent shape. Prints are still vivid too.
The new Sustainable fabric we are using is just as good as regular Lycra so you can expect it to last. Remember that in the water you're swimwear will expand about half a size. Once dry it'll go back to its original size.
