HOW DO I WASH MY SWIMSUIT? We recommend that you rinse your suit in cool water and hang to dry after exposure to chlorine or saltwater. To wash your suit, add a small (pea sized) drop of gentle, non bleach detergent to cool water and gently massage. Rinse thoroughly and hang to dry in a shaded area. 
DO NOT tumble dry as this will compromise the elasticity of the fabric and deteriorate the suit


  • Italian fabric made from ECONYL® regenerated Nylon and LYCRA® XTRALIFE

  • Hand wash in cold water and hang to dry

Tissu et entretien

COMMENT NETTOYER MON MAILLOT DE BAIN? Nous vous recommandons de rincer votre maillot dans de l’eau froide et de le suspendre pour qu’il sèche après contact avec du chlore ou de l’eau salée. Pour nettoyer votre maillot, ajoutez une goutte de détergent non javellisé de la taille d’un petit pois à de l’eau froide et massez délicatement. Rincez le maillot à grande eau et suspendez-le pour qu’il sèche dans une zone ombragée. 

NE PAS sécher à la sécheuse puisque cela pourrait compromettre l’élasticité du tissu et détériorer le maillot


  • Tissu italien fait de nylon régénéré ECONYL® et de LYCRA® XTRALIFE
  • Laver à la main à l’eau froide et étendre pour sécher

Beautiful quality!

Loveeee the quality and everything about this company! will be purchasing again! Amazing amazing bathing suit! I wish there was free returns b/c I found it hard to find my size as the description changed from “fits tighter” to “fits true to size”- after I placed my order. So, when I received the item it was much bigger then I anticipated having bought it under the pretence of it being a “tighter fit”. The descriptions of the piece are different in what’s written under the photo and what’s written on the sizing chart. I think that should be made more clear so the correct size can be bought since exchanges are on the buyer. Had I known it fits true to size I would have ordered the XS and not sized up to the small like the sizing chart told me to do. But apart from that I highly recommend the bathing suit and seriously I can’t wait to order the XS when it’s back and have this piece for many years to come! This is my new go to bathing suit company! Xx
