  • How should I choose my size?


Top: 

Refer to the bra-cup size you usually wear and choose according to the top size chart. 

Western and Asian cup sizes countries differ a lot, therefore please make sure you choose accordingly.


Bottom: 

We recommend you to have a friend helping you to take the measurements around hip and bottom. If you do it yourself, pay attention to holding the measurement band horizontally. Choose according to the bottom size chart.


Once-Piece: 

Refer to the bra-cup size and your hip/bottom measurement like with the bikini top and bottom. 

The length of the body increases with the its size.


Leggings: 

Take measurements around waist and bottom, choose according to the leggings size chart.



  • What is the difference between fixed paddings and exchangeable paddings? 


The fixed paddings are thicker (~1.7cm in the middle) and give the bikini cups a more solid shape and a little push-up.

The exchangeable paddings are only  ~ 0.8cm thick, they can be removed, washed, exchanged etc. Therefore the cups of the bikini top are more elastic and leaves  your bust its own natural shape.



  • Cleaning and maintenance of swimwear

Handwash in cold water without detergent or with a mild cleanser.  Let the bikini drip dry in shade. (Do not to use hot water, hard laundry detergent or bleach. Machine drying or hanging the bikini in direct hot sun light destroys the swimsuit's fabric as well as the straps' rubber!)

Swimwear fabrics are elastic, therefore it's easy for sand to get stuck in-between the fibers. When the swimsuit is wet, the sand will stick, therefore it'll be easier to get rid of the sand after the suit has dried. 

After playing at the beach and having a lot of sand inside the bottom, avoid flushing water directly towards the middle of the bottom. The sand might get stuck even deeper. Use a flicking movement instead as an initial clean-up. 

After the swimsuit is semi-dry or completely dry, flip the inside out and pick on the fabric, letting the sand pop out. 
In case there is still some sand, put the bikini in to a sink with water, stretch the fabric slightly while under water and let the sand drop to the ground of the sink. Sometimes soaking for a only a few minutes might help as well to dilute dirt. 



  • How to store a bikini top properly


Overlap the bikini cups instead of folding them like into each other like a mirror. Doing that can cause deformation of the paddings. 

(Treat the bikini top like a bra, it is a delicate piece of clothing!)
