SWIMWEAR CARE TIPS // how to keep your togs lookin' super fresh!👙💦



From day one, and forever ingrained in the very core of our being, our aim has been to make rad swimsuits that work just as hard as the women that wear them. That's how you know our gear won't let you down. Ever. All of our swimwear is made with the highest quality ultra durable and longest lasting fabrics that money can buy. To ensure your togs go the distance with you, all of the materials we use are:


Fade Resistant & UV Protective ☀️

As well as protecting you from the sun's harmful UV rays, our distinctive colours and unique prints that you love so much will stay as vibrant as the day you bought them, no matter how much time you spend in the sun!


Chlorine Resistant 🏊‍♀️

We are proud as punch of the fabrics we use to create the JOLYN magic. Extremely high quality, our long lasting materials are able to resist harsh chlorinated water lap after lap. Even our thread and lining are 100% chlorine resistant, so you'll never have to worry about your JOLYN's fading, chemical bleaching or going see-through underwater!


Perspiration & salt water proof 🌊

Salt water and perspiration is the daily grind for us. It's the reason we do what we do. You can get so salty, SO sweaty, knowing full well that the salts of your efforts won't ever break down our fabric, so you can wear your swimwear all day, everyday! We LOVE making swimwear for active, sporty women, so our fabrics are designed to survive being sweated in aaall day long! 


Breathable & insanely durable 👙

We want your JOLYN's to be super comfortable, moving with you like a second skin, without losing their shape. The elastic we use in our strapping is of the highest grade, and comes with reinforced stitching, so your swimsuit won't stretch out whilst you do your thing, ensuring the perfect fit every time!


So with all that said, it's pretty obvious your JOLYN's will be kicking along with you for the long haul without any effort on your behalf. BUT if you want them to last eeeeeven longer and get the best possible performance out of them each wear, these simple swimwear care tips will help keep your togs in peak shape!

After training, a trip to the beach or whatever else you're doing in your JOLYN's, the best way to wash your togs is by rinsing them under cold water. No soap needed!


Once you've rinsed your togs, hang them out to dry and they'll be ready to go again in no time! Just make sure to pop them out of direct sunlight, as too much sun can cause the straps to begin perishing. Also, don't leave your togs in a wet scrunched up ball in your bag after training, because mould ain't a good look.


To keep your togs looking and performing their best, avoid wearing them against abrasive surfaces such as sitting on concrete, climbing over rocks, leaning against walls, or using rough body boards. Surfaces like these can cause the fabric to become bumpy, snag or tear, which may ruin the smooth, sleek look and feel of your fave swimsuit. Unfortunately, our stitching warranty does not cover this type of damage, so just remember to give your special togs the TLC they deserve! 💞

    Togs in the washing machine is a recipe for disaster - picture tangled straps, pulled out drawstrings, and fabric rubbing up against zippers or velcro. We just shuddered. Everyday washing detergent can also be a bit too much for the fabric, so a rinse in cold water is all your togs need!


    Your swimsuit isn't designed to withstand extreme heat, so to protect the fabric from being damaged, it's best to avoid these things! The rubber in your swimsuit straps are particularly afraid of the heat, and they risk melting when ironed or put in the dryer. The best way to dry your togs after a wash is by hanging them up in the shade!


    Swimsuit material does best in what it's made for... WATER! The chemicals used in dry-cleaning are far too harsh on your precious swimwear, which can lead to your suit becoming damaged.


    If you want your togs to stay the same vibrant colour as when you purchased them, steer clear of any bleach! It's probably the most terrifying chemical in the laundry; we're adults and we still don't trust ourselves using it without ruining the whole house.


    We want you to get the absolute most out of your togs so you can rock them for many, MANY years to come. If you follow these tips, you can be sure that your togs will be looking super fresh each time you put them on, for as long as you love them.
