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.
