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

Q & As

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 15 reviewers.
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
Rated 4 out of 5 by Quite nice It is a quite nice swimsuit, quite flattering, but nothing special, quite conservative. Returned, as found something much better and more flattering. 30 December 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Super swimsuit This is the best swimsuit I have worn in a long long time!! Although it can be a little bit of a struggle to get into (especially when you're warm) it really is a great fit and very comfortable. The bandeau top is fantastic the panel gives good support as is great for sunbathing and swimming as it stays in place - brilliant for ladies who have a larger bust. The back is low enough to get a good tan but high enough to stay secure. Having tummy control was excellent and gave me a shape (I am a larger lady). I took another swimsuit on holiday but had so much confidence in this one that I wore it everyday. This suit is worth every penny Well done!! 10 November 2012
Rated 3 out of 5 by Bathing suit I have this in plain black, I didn't feel this version was as flattering & have returned it. 01 September 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fabulous fit, great looks!! Love this swimsuit to bits, took 3 in changing room didn't even try the others on. Superb fit on a less than youthful granny, soft little bone each side of bust area is comfortable and keeps sides from rolling,but doesn't stick in ( ! ) bandeau style perfect for 'no strap mark' suntan. Enough control to keep me in shape, but not too tight. FANTASTIC. 17 August 2012
