It must be appreciated that Lycra is a delicate material and the life is very limited in Chlorinated water. The Strength of chemicals will vary from pool to pool, therefore if a high level of chlorine is used in the pool this may degrade the lycra quicker. The garment should be hand washed in cold water immediately after use; chlorine continues to affect the Lycra when left in your sports bag or towel. Avoid wrapping the costume in a towel. If possible put your costume/suit into a mesh equipment bag where it can breathe, this is the ideal way to transport your costume/suit home. Detergents/shampoo and shower gel will degrade lycra quickly we recommend that you Do not Shower in your suit, Do not machine wash your suits just rinse in cold water. To dry your suit just air dry away from direct sun light, radiators and Do NOT tumble dry. Sitting on rough pool side surfaces can also ruin the material. Follow these guides and you will get more hours out of your suit.

It is the customers responsibility to correctly measure themselves or the swimmer and to check the manufacturers sizing guides on ProSwimwear site. Customer Services are available to give advice and help with advice on the sizing, but they cannot see the swimmer or how the measurements are taken, so ProSwimwear does not bear any responsibility for the suit not being the correct sizing when received, it is the customer’s total responsibility for the size ordered. Swimwear sizing varies between manufacturers and this is why suits can be returned for exchanged to allow customers to get the right fit.

The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive is now UK law. The legislation aims to make producers pay for the collection, treatment and recovery of waste electrical equipment. The regulations also mean that suppliers of equipment like high street shops and internet retailers must allow consumers to return their waste equipment free of charge.
The amount of WEEE we throw away is increasing by around 5% each year, making it the fastest growing waste stream in the UK.
• Recycling reduces the environmental and health risks associated with sending electrical goods to landfill.
ProSwimwear Ltd is obliged under these regulations to offer our customers free take-back of their WEEE on a like-for-like basis when they buy a new Electrical or Electronic product from us.
Customers must return their like-for-like WEEE item to us within 28 days of purchasing their new item.
Under the WEEE Regulations, all new electrical goods should now be marked with the crossed-out wheeled bin symbol shown to show that they were produced after 13th August 2005, and should be disposed of separately from normal household waste so that they can be recycled.
