4 Things to Know About Chlorine-Resistant Swimwear

Chlorine keeps pools safe and sanitary, but unfortunately, it can also be hard on fabrics. You probably have a bathing suit or two that looks faded or has lost its elasticity. These changes are due to frequent chlorine exposure. Luckily, there is a solution to this problem: chlorine-resistant swimwear. If you swim or exercise in the water, you can really benefit from adding some chlorine-resistant swimwear to your collection. Here are four key things to know about these products.

1. Chlorine-resistant swimwear is made from modern, high-tech fabrics.

Chlorine is the main active ingredient in bleach, and you know what bleach does to most fabrics: it fades them! Traditional swimwear contains a lot of cotton and spandex, which are very permeable materials and let a lot of chlorine inside of them. This causes or allows the material to fade over time. Chlorine-resistant swimwear is primarily made from more modern, synthetic fabrics, like polyester and PBT. These fabrics don't let as much chlorine inside of them, so they are far less prone to fading and damage when exposed to pool water. 

2. Chlorine-resistant swimwear dries quickly.

Another way in which this modern swimwear resists chlorine damage is by drying quickly. If a bathing suit takes a long time to dry, then it is in contact with chlorine for much longer. If it dries quickly, then its chlorine exposure is over within minutes of you climbing out of the pool. 

It's also really nice to have your swimwear dry quickly. You can towel off, walk around for a few minutes, and then feel dry. You can then toss a cover-up or robe on without soaking these clothes.

3. Chlorine-resistant swimwear comes in all sorts of fun styles and colors.

You can find one-piece bathing suits that will stay in place through the most energetic of water exercise classes. You can find colorful, floral suits with skirts, unitanks with more coverage, tankini tops, short-style bottoms, and so much more. There are even cover-ups made from chlorine-resistant material, so you don't have to worry about your cover-up getting chlorine damage if it gets splashed.

4. Chlorine-resistant swimwear comes with a warranty.

H2O Wear is so confident in their chlorine-resistant swimwear that it's sold with a one-year warranty. This is important for two reasons. First, it assures you that the swimwear is quality, since the company is willing to stand behind it. Second, it assures you that if something does go wrong with the swimwear, which only happens in rare cases, your costs are covered. You will still need to take good care of your swimwear by rinsing it in cold water after each use, and by washing it on the gentle cycle, but with this care, the swimwear should last for years.

It's so nice to jump in the pool, enjoy a good swim, and not have to worry about the damage being done to your swimwear. Whether you swim casually for fun or attend water exercise classes on a daily basis, you deserve to have swimwear that supports your hobby. That's where H20 Wear comes in. The variety of colors, patterns, and styles ensures you're able to find chlorine-resistant swimwear that looks and feels like you — and stays that way.
