We use only the highest quality fabrics from Australia and around the world in Sue Rice Swimsuits, yet swimsuits are subjected to more harsh conditions than the average garment, so they need extra care if you want them to last.
Chemicals and/or heat will cause Lycra fibre to disintegrate and your Nylon Lycra swimsuit to stretch and sag before its time. Because Chloroban does not contain any Lycra fibre, it cannot perish and will last up to 5 times longer than Nylon Lycra in pools and spas.
Additionally, some chemicals making up sunscreens today can fade colour and cause elastomeric fibres to perish. Please use sunscreen only on skin. Do not put it on your swimsuit.
Good care will help extend the life of your swimsuit, whether it be Nylon-lycra or Chloroban:
Always follow instructions on the swing ticket and cloth label on your Sue Rice Swimsuit. Remember that swimwear is intimate apparel and cannot be returned after it has been worn unless there is a fault in manufacture. General wear and tear cannot be considered a fault.
