What are the trends for 2006?
Trends for 2006 embody true vintage appeal with a tribute to tribal romanticism. Neutral colors, ethnic influences and upscale embellishments create nostalgic bohemian chic and retro vibes, allowing swimwear to be an extension of your personality. Embellishments are all the rage! Embrace metallic elements, silver and gold hardware, knit crochets, belt buckles, netting overlays and jeweled appliqués. Explore the new one-piece silhouette for 2006, which is no other than the “cut-out”! Be bold, edgy and Fashion Forward.

What colors are in for 2006?
Everything But Water’s 2006 collections include a broad spectrum of colors, sure to appeal to a wide range of clientele. Chocolate brown is the new black and coordinates perfectly in the Spice Palette you will see in upcoming collections. Browns, nudes, metals and dusty solids are a few colors to look forward to in 2006. Lurex, embroidery, animal, reptile, ombre and mesh fabric treatments will play a major role in swimwear this season.

What style of cover-ups are in for 2006?
Cover-ups featuring slinky, flowing easy fabrics complete the essence of the 2006 season. Culottes, Rollover Pants and Alicia pants will add style to any ensemble by the pool or on a cruise. Relax in gauze long sleeve and short sleeve tunics, and super low rise pants. The cover up is the piece that ties your ensemble together and is sure to make your swimwear wardrobe complete.

When walking into a specialty swimwear store, should I tell the sales associate what I do and do not like?
It is important to keep an open mind. Swimwear is very emotional. Everything But Water has a tremendous selection of styles; every color and print imaginable; silhouettes from conservative to trendy; and well-trained fit specialists to help you find all types of styles to compliment your figure.

How does color come into play when buying a swimsuit?
Don’t limit yourself to a specific color or print. You will be pleasantly surprised how colors and prints can offer a figure enhancing result.

Who can wear a two-piece?
Everything But Water believes that fit is more important than age. A two-piece can fit just as well as a one-piece. Be open-minded. Give separates a chance. Find the coverage you expect from a one piece, in two-piece bikini or tankini styles. Identity your assets, show them off, and remember—there is no age on looking fabulous in swimwear.

How do I know my size in swimwear?
When trying on swimwear, start with one size bigger than your dress or pant size. Swimwear should be a snug fit. Pay close attention to how the suit fits your rear. As with most swimwear, when the fabric gets saturated, the suit will stretch a quarter of an inch.

How should my swimwear fit: tight, loose, or comfortable?
Swimwear fit can be tricky. Go up one size from your pant or dress size. As you start trying on, pay attention to your bust and fanny. Your swimsuit should feel snug. Don’t make the mistake of buying your suit too comfortable. If you are between sizes, go with the smaller size. Remember, swimwear expands in the water. There is nothing worse than the saggy suit look. You should feel confident and self-assured in your suit.

How should I pack for a resort vacation or cruise?
Everything But Water is your one stop shop. Head to toe we will help you find the perfect swimwear wardrobe, versatile enough for every occasion. Let an Everything But Water fit specialist help you coordinate a wardrobe that will take you from the pool to dinner, to your night out on the town.

What precautions should I take when it comes to the care of my swimsuit?
It is very important to take care of your swimwear. Everything But Water offers special formulas of swimwear cleaner and swimwear protector that will do the job and help prolong the life of your swimsuit. You should hand wash your suit with swimwear cleaner to remove chlorine, salt water, sun tan oils and bacteria from your swimsuit. Everything But Water swimwear protector is a leave-in conditioner, which helps to retain the elasticity of the fabric, maintains color brightness and keeps your suit from thinning out.
