How to Wash Your Swimsuits

Lengthen the life of your swimsuits by caring for them properly. Here are our personal-stylist approved tips for keeping suits as bright as your summer glow: 

1. DO HAND WASH ONLY. Use only a detergent made for delicate fabrics. If you don't have detergent on hand, at least give it a rinse in fresh water. 

2. DO WASH AFTER EACH WEAR. Even if you didn't dip in the pool, as sunscreen and other lotions can stain the suit. 

3. DON'T DRY YOUR SUIT IN THE SUN OR DRYER. Heat weakens the elasticity, and the sun causes it to fade. 

4. DON'T SOAK YOUR SUIT OVERNIGHT. This also weakens the elasticity.

Brief history: 

The d'orsay shoe was named after Count Alfred d’Orsay—a 19th-century "dandy," artist. and friend of Lord Byron. The shoes were worn by men at the time, and the cut-out sides were introduced to accommodate wider feet.
