Most swimsuits are made from spandex/nylon blend, which is what we use in our binders, so the material will not be damaged by water or swimming. We do suggest wearing a size up from your regular fit as it is important not to bind too tightly while exercising. Be sure to stretch and breathe, and follow healthy binding etiquette.
Do not try to put your binder on while you or the binder is wet, you won’t be able to get it on--and you run the risk of breaking seams.
We suggest having a dedicated swimming binder to ensure that you have a dry one available after swimming. Rinse and dry the binder after swimming to get salt/dirt/chlorine out. Water should not wear on your binder negatively.
