Caring for Your Men's Onesie Swimsuit: Essential Tips

Finding the perfect swimsuit can be a challenge. It should be functional and make you feel confident and comfortable. Once you've found that ideal piece, it's essential to take care of it properly to ensure it stays in great condition for many seasons to come. Here are some tips on how to clean and preserve your swimsuit so you can enjoy it for longer:

Cuts, fabrics and embellishments

When it comes to choosing the right cut for your Male Onesie Swimsuit, you don't have to show off more than what you're comfortable with. The most important factor is finding a swimsuit that covers you in all the right places, which applies to both men's and women's swimwear. Whether you opt for a simple one-piece or a more elaborate option, any special details (like scalloped edges and tie-backs) as well as fabrics will be affected by how you clean and care for your suit.

Choice fabrics for swimsuits include nylon, spandex, and lycra, all of which are durable and easy to care for post-swim. However, it's important to note that nylon can fade with strong sunlight, while spandex is only comfortable when combined with other materials. Polyester is another less common fabric used in swimwear; it's not as comfortable and elastic as nylon, but it's more chlorine and fade-resistant, so it will often have a longer lifespan.

To keep your swimsuit in top condition, avoid machine washing it, as even the gentle cycle can damage the fabric and cause colors to fade. Check the label for care instructions; some swimsuits may need to be dry-cleaned or hand-washed. When hand washing, use a gentle detergent in cool water, especially if your swimsuit has embellishments like ruffles or rhinestones.

Treating stains

Whether you're taking a swim or playing beach volleyball, you might find some unexpected stains or marks on your swimsuit.

If you accidentally get sunscreen on your Male Onesie swimsuit, using dish soap can effectively remove most stains before they set in. First, use a clean, dry towel to blot the stain and soak up as much of it as possible. For spills or food stains, sprinkle some baking soda on the affected area and let it sit for an hour before washing your swimwear in cool water. A handy swimsuit tip is to take it into the shower with you to rinse off chlorine, sand, or any other debris effortlessly. It's important to act quickly, as chlorine can fade the color and weaken the elastic of your Male Onesie swimsuit if left untreated.   

Preserving swimwear

To help your favorite swimsuit last longer, aside from selecting the right materials and washing it gently, follow these tips:

  • Hand wash immediately using a gentle baby soap, preferably fragrance-free.
  • To maintain the shape of your swimsuit, it's best to flat dry it instead of wringing it out.
  • Spandex, especially, can stretch out with frequent wear. Consider rotating between different styles to give your swimsuit a break between beach days and pool parties.

To maintain the shape and quality of your special needs clothes, it's important to rotate them regularly. This helps each piece retain its original form and durability over time. When storing your swimsuit, use a fabric garment bag to prevent moisture from seeping in. Store the bag in a dry area to avoid mildew, which can lead to unpleasant odors and damage to your swimsuits.

Caring for your swimsuit doesn't need to be complicated. By taking a few simple steps, you can keep your favorite piece in great condition for your next swim in the lake or morning laps in the pool.
