How to Care For Your Designer Swimsuits?

How to Care for Your Designer Swimsuits?

Why invest in great quality swimwear if you are going to treat it poorly and only get a few wears out of it? 


Follow these 6 easy care steps:

1) If you must swim in a Chlorine Pool...
Ensure to frequently check your pool and hot tub's chlorine content. If it is too high, the excessive amount of chlorine can break down the spandex of the swimsuit, which will ruin the shape of your swimwear. Also, too much chlorine can accelerate fading of the fabric so spending long days in the pool are not recommended for designer suits.

2) Avoid Rough Surfaces
Sitting and/or rubbing against textured pool decks and any rough edges can ruin the smooth and luxurious texture of your swimsuit so pay close attention to surfaces.

3) Be Careful with Tanning Oils and Sunscreen
Avoid getting excess lotions and oils on your swimwear. Sunscreen, tanning oils, and cosmetics can be harmful to swimsuits because they will stain fabrics. Make sure to rinse and wash your swimwear as soon as possible if you do.

4) Rinse in Cold Water After Wearing
Rinse your swimsuits in cold water after each wear. By rinsing your suits in cold water, you will help remove the excess salt and chlorine which is an important step in the care of your swimwear.

5) Do Not Machine Wash Your Designer Bikini
Avoid washing designer bikinis in washing machines. Washing machines can ruin the shape, fabric, and padding, as well as any delicate embellishments, stones, or beading. Therefore wash your swimwear by hand in cold water. Always use a mild soap that is meant for delicate fabrics.

6) Lay Out To Dry, Avoid Direct Sunlight Which Can Cause Fading
Gently squeeze the water out of your designer bikini after washing. Be gentle and do not wring or twist your bikini, as this could ruin its shape. Do not dry your swimsuits in a dryer and do not dry it in direct sunlight.

The Wonderful World of Intimates!

We are expanding our All Wet Beachwear portfolio to now include the wonderful world of Intimate!

When we decided to go into lingerie, it was because lingerie truly enabled us to discover our customers needs outside of swimwear. At its most powerful, lingerie can allow you to dress as the person you are that day, at that very moment – even if no one else sees that person except you! 

Increase the Life Span of your Bras, with these few important tips!

Bras are the foundation of any outfit, so it’s important to treat them with care. A good quality bra should last 8-12 months. You should have at least 4-6 everyday bras in your collection. It is recommended that you wash your bra every 2-3 wears, depending on the level of activity and personal hygiene. Sports bras should be washed after each use.
  1. Hand wash your bras using a mild detergent. If you machine wash your bras, always us the delicate or hand wash cycle and fasten the hooks. Avoid bleach, hot water and harsh detergents.
  2. Rinse in cold water to restore the shape and elasticity.
  3. Air dry your bras whenever possible,  the heat of the dryer will damage the elasticity.
  4. When bras are in drawers, fold them carefully to prevent snagging.
  5. Don’t turn them inside out because it creates unsightly dimples that can become visible under clothing.
Travel Tips for Lingerie
  1. When traveling, fasten hooks and use lingerie travel bags.
  2. Place socks or panties in the padded cups to avoid damaging them when traveling.

Compliment Any Look with Electric Picks Jewelry

When searching for new brands and new products for AWB it's not always as easy as it looks. So on our last buying trip during Miami Swimweek we discovered a brand that could compliment any beach to boardwalk look!

Electric Picks has a unique aesthetic, combining the worlds of music + fashion.  The New York City based brand aims to translate the excitement and glamour of music into jewelry form utilizing guitar picks and taking inspiration from music festivals around the world.

The brand is co-owned by best friends Mj Barton & Chantel Gia.  One night after a concert in Miami, Mj had a dream to punch holes in the guitar pick souvenir she'd gotten that night.  Soon friends & family wanted her to make their guitar picks into bracelets as well, and Electric Picks was born.

The guitar picks are all either custom or vintage. Mj & Chantel love to scour vintage stores for inspiration. Using materials from their travels all around the world (Istanbul, Athens, Barcelona, Morocco, Thailand, Paris, India etc) they mix gemstones, fine metals, and authentic guitar picks to create looks that aspire to be as timeless as music is.

Electric Picks has been spotted in the pages of Cosmo, People Stylewatch, Self, and Lucky and on the wrists of Sophia Vergara, Vanessa Hudgens, and Britney Spears.
