Buying a swimsuit is not as simple as it looks. There are a number of things that must be taken into consideration if you want to avoid regretting your purchase.
Having said, here are 3 things to consider before buying a swimsuit:
#1: Ultraviolet Protection Factor
Clothing, and which includes swimsuits, along with UPF is a developing trend. UPF is able to gauge a fabric’s effectiveness against both types: UVA & UVB light. Just remember that the higher that number, then the more effective it is at blocking out UV rays. In other words, look for a swimsuit with a UPF of 50 and above.
Think about how the swimsuit is built. Questions such as to whether the swimsuit is lined, stitching type, threads coming loose or not should be asked. Simply put, a good swimsuit will be lined on the inside while having either zig-zag or double-row stitches. And if the threads are coming loose, the swimsuit won’t probably hold up.
#3: Consider Customizable Features
Finding the right swimsuit is just as difficult as finding the right pair of jeans. So, it’s a good idea to find ones that are adaptable to your needs. For example, adjustable shoulder straps or even removable cups. For that matter, if you like tankinis, pick one with drawstrings that can make the top longer or shorter.
