Does your swimwear provide sun protection?
All our swimwear is made from 82% Polyester and 18% Lycra Spandex - both fabrics naturally have a UPF (ultraviolet protection factor) rating, which measures their ability to block out UV radiation. Polyester has a UPF rating of 30-50, while spandex has a rating of 40-50. This means that they can block out up to 98% of harmful UV rays, providing excellent protection against sunburn and skin damage. However, it is important to note that we have not put our fabrics through a UV certification yet, but we will be doing this in the future.
What does the inner bra of the Swim Shirt look like?
The inner bra fits more like a sports bra (with elastic rather than a wire). The elastic is strong (we've upgraded since releasing our original line) and will provide support for larger-chested women.
Does your swimwear have bra cups?
Yes, all our swim-tops have removable bra cups built into them.
I've had a mastectomy, will your swimwear work for me?
Absolutely, our co-founder Velvet has had a double mastectomy, so ensuring our swim tops are comfortable for women who've gone through breast cancer was very important to us. All our swim tops have removable cups in them, so women can choose to remove them or add silicone bra inserts as they wish.
Will the colour fade in chlorine?
Absolutely not! Our swimwear holds extremely well against hundreds of washes and swims in chlorinated water.
