So far there isn't really much information about how to care for your neoprene bikinis but there is lots of information about how to care for your wetsuits. Wetsuits are definitely more durable than a Triangl or Brakini. Most girls don't know how to properly care for their swimwear in general. It's common for them to overlook the care and washing instructions that are on the inside of the tags. This happens all the time causing your $100 bikini to wear down quicker than it should have.
By following these instructions i've had bikinis since I was 13 still last to the present time, this is a guide for neoprene but you can follow it for any type of swimwear. If you take care of your swimwear it will last for a very long time. So here are some steps i've written up to help you care for your bikini this summer.
- Don't buy a neoprene bikini. - Don't do it, i have 12 of them and never ever wear them because they're uncomfortable.
- Avoid rough surfaces - I've got the leather look Brakini bottoms and have the silver ones on order, these two designs if they come into contact with a rock or a rough surface will ruin their designs completely.
- Do not fold your bikinis - if you fold them you leave a permanent crease in the martial.
- If you do crease it i've read that you can use an iron on the neoprene if it's one of the normal designs and not shiny. Place a towel over the top of it and a cooler setting on the iron and you should be fine.
- Hand wash you bikini after every wear in plain cool water- the washing machine cannot be trusted with your beautiful bikinis and by washing it after everywhere you are rinsing out any chemicals or salt that are left in the neoprene
- Dry them on a flat surface out of direct sunlight
- Avoid leaving them in the sun for too long - as this risks stiffening, drying and cracking.
- If you do manage to end up with a tear or a hole - you can purchase a neoprene repair kit made for wetsuits if you want to fix it.
- Storage - store your neoprene flat. If you want to see how I store my bikinis I wrote a post here.
- Don't wear it to the beach or to any other sandy locations if you plan on sitting down - unless you want to look like you shit yourself.
- If you get sand inside the material you should soak it in warmer water before stretching the material apart with your hands under the tap. This should pull the tiny spaces between the threads open enough to rinse out the sand.
- Once the colour runs after you wash it, it's pretty much stained. I don't know anyway to get the stains out.
