RealSimple.com:Swimsuit Myths and Shopping Tips

5 Ways to Protect Your Perfect Suit

Hand wash the suit in cool water with Dreft or a soap made for swimsuits. (Try the Laundress Swimwear Care, $19, thelaundress.com.)

Clean the suit after every wearing, even if you didn’t get wet, to remove sunscreen, sweat, and body oils.

Gently roll the suit (don’t wring it out) to get rid of excess water, then air-dry it away from direct sunlight.

Never wear the same suit two days in a row or it will stretch. Give the garment a 24-hour rest so the spandex has time to recover its shape.

Avoid leaning on rough surfaces, like rocks, cement, or wood, to prevent snags.
