We source the fabric for this silky style from Jersey Lomellina, a top Italian mill. Featherweight but still substantial, it features UPF 50 sun protection (think of it as sunscreen for fabric) and resists pilling and fading. Moderate coverage. Italian nylon/Lycra® spandex. Sits low on hips. Foldover waistband. Self lined. Our swimsuits are machine washable, but we recommend hand washing as it helps keep the fabric and the shape of the suit looking newer, longer. Import.
