The Benefits of Chlorine Resistant Swimwear

Posted on November 03 2014

Its is necessary for all swimming pools to be chlorinated as it helps to reduce bacteria and halts the growth of algae in the water. This means regular doses of chlorinated water will come into contact with your swimsuit and causing irreversible damage to the fabric. Luckily these days there is now an array of chlorine resistant swimsuits to buy. Slix Australia has now developed their own fabrics, named Stamina -  To provide a high level of chlorine resistance, which is a plus for any one who swims in a pool. Look out for the Slix branded Stamina fabrics when choosing swimwear that is chlorine resistant.



Here are the great benefits of using a chlorine resistant swimsuit, in particular if you are a regular swimmer.



Longer Lasting

A pair of swimmers which offers 100 percent resistance to chlorine can last up to six times longer than a standard piece of swimwear. This can make a big difference, especially if you are an experienced swimmer who has does regular training sessions. 



Shape

When Exposed to chlorine it can eat into the fabric of a swimsuit and slowly it will have an impact on the shape and make it a looser fit. Fortunately the fabric of chlorine resistant swimwear will have a higher proportion of polyester which  helps to keep its shape. The Stamina fabric from Slix Australia offers 100 percent chlorine resistant and has a four way stretch to provide that the swimwear will maintain and provide a high quality fit.



Colour

As chlorine is prevented from eating into the fabric, this means that the colour of the swimwear will not fade. You can be confident that your swimsuit will continue to look great on the beach and in the water, instead of looking old and tired. All of Slix's chlorine resistant swimsuits will give some level of protection against fading.



Cost effective

Swimwear which provides 100 percent resistance to chlorine is only a little more expensive than buying a standard swimsuit or a swimsuit from your local department shore. But be careful about buying a swimsuit from a retailer who doesn’t specialise in swimwear but produces cheap fashionable items as a part of their summer ranges, because they rarely use long-lasting and hard wearing fabrics and can often go transparent! You should look at the initial cost may be higher, but when investing in chlorine resistant swimwear, this can be balanced out by the fact that your swimwear will last longer before it needs to be replaced. You should try to look at chlorine resistant swimsuits as an investment that will bring you a long term savings and long lasting fun in the pool!
