First things first, make sure to watch out for where you sit!
Whether you’re exercising at your local swimming baths or you’re relaxing by the pool on your summer holidays, the edges are generally made from rougher material which stops them from being slippery. This is great from a safety point of view but for the sake of your swimsuit you should avoid sitting directly in areas which can cause snags.
Further to this, if you’re lucky enough to be soaking up some rays in your new swimsuit then you should also avoid getting sun lotion on it as much as you can help it. Oil based products such as this can cause a breakdown in the elasticity of the garment and a saggy swimsuit is not a good look on your holiday!
Our final tip for this section, we must say with a heavy heart, is to avoid hot tubs and Jacuzzis with your brand new costume.
Extreme temperatures and concentrated chemicals found in hot tubs are, unfortunately, a death sentence for the elastic in swimsuits so we’d recommend wearing an older swimsuit if you’re going for a Jacuzzi dip!
