Summer is here! If you're looking for a new swimsuit, there are a few things you should keep in mind in order to save, not splurge. In this clip, our experts offer tips on how to shop for a new suit, and how to keep it in mint condition for seasons to come.
Shopping for a Swimsuit
When in comes to swimwear, there are dozens of different options to choose from, many of which can cost you a pretty penny. So, how can you get the most for your money? Well, the average cost for a one-style suit is $40, but there's a way to get more bang for your buck. Consider a convertible swimsuit instead. Many offer two, sometimes three style options, giving you multiple suits for the price of one. This can come in handy when trying to pack light for a vacation.
Now that you have your perfect suit, proper care is key to making it last. First rule of thumb: Never put your swimsuit in the washer or dryer. Most suits are made of materials that can be broken down or damaged when machine-washed. Instead, after each use, soak your suit in tap water for 30 minutes. Then, hand wash the garment with a gentle soap or detergent and then hang to dry.
Using these easy tips, you'll look great and have a little extra money in the bank while you hit the beach.
