How do I care for my swimsuit?

To keep your SUNSOAKED swimsuit looking vibrant and beautiful, please refer to the care instructions included in your order, along with the fabric tag affixed within your SUNSOAKED swimsuit.

Rinse well after use.

Use mild detergent.

Cool hand wash separately only. We recommend against washing in the machine due to automatic heat settings that may discolour your suit or snag the garment during the wash cycle.

Dry in shade.

Do not roll up or store while wet.

Do not bleach, soak or tumble dry.

Do not iron.

Some colours may fade in sunlight or in chlorinated water. We use the most colour fast dyes available on our swimsuits, however we can not guarantee complete colourfastness. Some colours may bleed or transfer when wet.

Please avoid contact with rough surfaces, along with heated pools (including hydrotherapy) and spas that are treated with harsh chemicals.

Strong levels of chemicals and high temperatures are not ideal for your swimsuit and may cause colour fading.

Fake tanning products and some sunscreen lotions may mark or damage your garment. Please take extra care when using these products and ensure they are completely dry prior to coming in contact with your SUNSOAKED suit.

What size swimsuit should I order?

SUNSOAKED swimsuits are available in sizes AU 6 – 20. Our one piece swimsuits are designed to provide additional coverage and modesty, with each of our swimsuit styles designed on real women’s bodies. SUNSOAKED’s swimsuit sizes do fall a little on the generous side, so if you find you are between sizes we recommend sizing down.  For best fit, we recommend a firm/snug fit that is flattering to the body.

For example, if you are between an AU size 12 and 14, we recommend to size down to an AU size 12.

SUNSOAKED’s swimsuits are suitable for A-G cup sizes.

Please refer to SUNSOAKED’s Size Guides.
