    Hi, I am Krista Landgraf and I am the swimwear buyer at South Moon Under. Today, we are showing you how to find the perfect swimsuit for your figure. Right now I would like to discuss caring for your designer swimsuit. Swimwear is made out of Lycra and Spandex and over time it breaks down. There are few things you can do to help slow this aging process. First, when you buy your swimsuit, you should soak your suit in a sink full of water and a cup full of clear vinegar. This helps prevent the colors of your bathing suit from bleeding. After you get it out of saltwater or chlorine, be sure to rinse your swimsuit with water and then either wash it with a mild dish soap or while you are in the shower with shampoo. Hot tubs are one of worst things you can do for your swimwear because of the heat and the chlorine, it will speed the aging process considerably. Finally, I hope this helped you find the perfect swimsuit for your body. You have to feel comfortable on the beach, so find your nearest swimwear boutique and find somebody who is knowledgeable to help you find the perfect swimsuit for your body.
