the-Bikini.com Terms and Conditions

Fabrics

We use the highest quality fabrics and stitching to manufacture the best extreme bikini products available.
All swimwear, including the sheer range is generally 20% Lycra (or other elastane) and 80% Nylon.
Laces have varied composition but are principally Nylon and Lycra (or other elastane) generally in similar proportions to the above.
Lingerie, is generally 18% elastane and 82% Polyamide.
All our bikinis do not have lining.

Garment Care

Despite its great stretch and appearance of strength, Lycra/elastane fabrics can be easily damaged. Hot tubs and swimming pools contain chlorine which may damage the Lycra/elastane in your bikini. The sheer and transparent fabrics are even more delicate and should be treated with extra care.

Make sure to wash your bikini after each use. Suntan oils can also damage the fabric in your swimwear with prolonged use. If you use tanning oil then make sure to wash it out of your bikini with soap after each use. Light colours will fade more quickly than dark in the intense summer sun.

After use, hand wash your bikini in mild soap, rinse well with fresh water and hang to dry out of the sun. Do not leave rolled up wet.

Do not use bleach. Do not iron. Do not dry clean.
