How to care for your Bombshell Bay Sustainable Swimwear: the same as you would for any other swimwear. NEVER, EVER put it in the washing machine. EVER. Hand wash with cool water, dry in shade.
This, by the way, not only makes your sustainable swimwear last longer, but also prevents microplastics from being shed through the friction of clothes in a washing machine.
Is Bombshell Bay Sustainable Swimwear fabric good quality?
Our sustainable swimwear in no may 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, which is more expensive than regular Lycra.
The quality is incredible, just as good as the original Lycra that we know. It’s also fully lined and UV50+
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 streches. The good stuff (like the one we use, has 2 way stretch) it snaps back into place after being worn. Over time, 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 your swimwear will expand about half size. Once dry it’ll go back to its original size.
