Caring for Swimwear

Most women expect their swimwear to last for a couple of seasons. With a combination of sun cream, pool water and heat, a garment can degrade very quickly. Help preserve your swimwear by adhering to the following:

  • Wash swimwear in luke warm water and mild detergent 
  • Rinse thoroughly 
  • Dry away from direct heat e.g sunlight and radiators
  • Do not machine wash unless recommended to to so
  • Wash all pieces in a set at the same time to ensure consistency of colour and performance over time

Rated 4 out of 5 by Flattering swimsuit A shapely one piece with padded cups which are not a too firm fill and give a natural look.overall very pleased with the swimwear, however I have as yet too get it wet. 05 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great swimsuit This is a very smart and comfortable swimsuit. The ruching is flattering and the fact that you can remove the straps makes it good for sun bathing. I would buy another one! 16 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it....bring on holiday time. This is the second one of these I have had. Its flattering, comfortable and kind to my aging shape. Supports well without halter strap. Makes me feel good!! What's not to like. 09 February 2016

Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice Swimsuit Good quality , good sizing . just not special for the price. Excellent service from John Lewis. 20 January 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by JL Control Bandeau Swimsuit I love this because it helps me look good (or at least better) in a swimsuit without looking like it is a control garment. 18 November 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by A lovely swimsuit that ticks all the boxes I already have two of these swimsuits in plain black and navy. They are perfect for smoothing out lumps and bumps and are comfortable and practical with a detachable halter strap useful when sun bathing. I do not wear large bold colored designs as I no longer have a sylph-like body so the polka dot design is perfect for me. I really like this swimsuit. Thank you John Lewis 07 May 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Nearly, but not quite The control element is good, the ruching is nice, but the bandeau top squished my boobs, and with the straight top covering any cleavage, it was most unflattering! Sending it back. Starting again in my search sadly. 05 April 2014
