Spot the best chlorine proof bathing suits with these tips.
Summer is coming to a close and that means cooler days are on the way. Fortunately we don’t have to put away our summer wardrobes just yet because the season of layering is just beginning.
For those of us that spend time at the gym or doing aqua aerobics, HydroChic is the perfect choice. Our comfortable and chic bathing suits double as high quality active wear that soak up sweat and allow you to go from the gym to the grocery store, without worrying about having to change.
What makes our garments so versatile? It’s all in the fabrics and designs that we choose. Because after all, HydroChic was created for the modern woman, the woman that is all of us. The busy homemaker, the grandma that helps out with the kids on the weekend and the overworked mom who runs from work to school pickup without forgetting to keep a trip to the gym on her to do list.
Our designs are as reliable as ever with zippered pockets and hidden shorts to keep you covered and modest as you go from task to task.
At HydroChic, quality is one of our top priorities so we’ve sourced the best possible fabric that can withstand the busy schedule of any woman. Here are some of the types of fabrics we use to ensure that our products will fit the lifestyles we and our customers live.
Polyester: We have all come to know polyester well but the reason it has become so popular is because it is strong and flexible, won’t wrinkle and dries quickly. It is the perfect choice for pool swimming as it has no lycra which can be destroyed by the chlorine found in the pool. If you are a frequent swimmer or enjoy aqua aerobic fitness classes, then this is the best choice for you.
Nylon: Nylon blends are what you will come across most in the female swimwear fashion world. Why? It is soft and comfortable. It gives a good stretch, and it hugs your body really well.
A typical blend is around 80% nylon and 20% of the stretchy bit. That bit is called Lycra®. The purpose of this 20% is to provide great elasticity for your bikinis and swim. We use XTRA LIFE LYCRA which gives the suit a longer life span in chlorinated water as opposed to swimwear made without it.
At HydroChic we offer you products that can last you season after season. Knowing what your garment is made from will help you better understand what to choose to ensure your investment endures the test of time.
The various combinations of these fabrics is what sets our swimwear and active wear apart. Now you can enjoy HydroChic all winter long at the gym and be sure it’s ready to go when you plan your next vacation poolside or at the beach..
