2019’s Top 5 Swimsuit Trends

Summer is here! With it comes lazy days by the pool or on the beach. Here are some of the top swimsuit trends of 2019 to help you find the perfect swimwear this season! Don’t forget, Eucalan can keep it looking great and smelling fresh and clean every time.

Stripes

Whether it’s a gorgeous rainbow of colour you’re after or slightly more neutral tones, stripes are hot for 2019. Go rainbow fun with the High Leg One Piece Swimsuit from Gap! Or try a more modern look with the Chroma Bandeau Top and Bottom from Athleta. For a classic look, we love Sassy Striped One Piece Suit from Lingerie Diva.

Textures

Ribbing, smocking, ruching – it’s all about texture this summer! If you’re up for some colour, try this Violeta Ribbed Bikini by Mango. Looking for ruching? Try the flattering Elegant Dance Solid One Piece by Cupshe. For a sweeter look, we love this Tory Burch Costa Printed One Piece by Shopbop.

Prints

As with mainstream fashion in 2019, prints are in! Make a statement with animal pieces, go for bold geometrics, or keep it sweet and demure with wallpaper florals. We love the Beach Floral Keyhole One Piece Swimsuit by LOFT and the Beach Riot Julia One-Piece Swimsuit by Anthropologie for fun summer prints. For something a bit racier, try this Zebra Print Swimsuit by Mango.

3

Cutouts

Cutouts are another design trend for the season: think plunging necklines, high cut bottoms or snips in unexpected places. Try a daring neckline with the Adriana Strappy Monikini by Lingerie Diva. Stick to stripes and (mostly) classic shapes with the Solid & Striped Louise Swimsuit by Shopbop. Or try a few fun cutouts in this floral Mia Printed One Piece Swimsuit by Free People.

Details

It’s all in the details! Belts, hoops, laces, ruffles and more; all the extra details are where it’s at this year. We love the lacing in this Magical Mauve Bikini by Lingerie Diva. Or try elegant braiding as a bust detail with the Empreinte Curl One Piece Swimsuit (Modeled and reviewed by Wen of Comics Girls Need Bras). Or stick to a more classic look with this Ruffle Neck Plus-Sized Swimsuit from Old Navy.

Caring for Summer Beachwear with Eucalan

It’s summertime, and whether you’re heading to the beach or staying poolside, you can keep your swimwear and towels in great shape by keeping them laundered with Eucalan.

Swimsuit Care

To keep your swimsuit looking fresh you should wash it after every use with your favourite scent (try our Lavender, Jasmine and Grapefruit scents for their naturally antiseptic properties).  Whether you stock a bottle at home, or keep our single use pods handy, Eucalan makes it easy to remove oils, lotions and chlorine from your suit at home or on vacation. Follow these easy steps to ensure a clean-smelling suit every time.

Step 1: Fill a sink or basin with tepid water (room temperature).

Step 2: Add either a capful of Eucalan or the contents of a single use pod.

Step 3: Add your swimsuit and soak for 15 minutes.

Step 4: Remove your swimsuit and gently squeeze out water (do not wring). You may also wish to roll in a towel and squeeze again to remove excess water.

Step 5: Hang suit to dry overnight.

For more information on swimsuit care you can also check out this article over at Lingerie Journal.

Towel Care

But what about those sandy or chlorinated towels? Eucalan can also be used in your washing machine to keep fluffy beach towels looking bright and smelling sweet.

Step 1: Add Eucalan to your washing machine (if it’s a front load machine, add it to the fabric softener drawer).

Step 2: Select the Delicate cycle and tepid water.

Step 3: Load your towels into the machine and start cycle.

Step 4: Allow the towels to spin out.

Step 5: Dry your towels in the dryer on low heat.

We hope these tips will keep your trips to the beach, lake or pool carefree and easy.

Easy Swimwear Care

Sometimes, you just need a day at the beach (or lounging poolside). But sun, sea salt, and chlorine can wreak havoc on your swimwear if not properly cared for.

Keep your bathing suit looking its best with Eucalan.

The good news is that it’s quite easy to keep your bathing suit in tip-top condition: after every use, wash in your favourite scent of Eucalan. We show you how in this easy tutorial:

As you can see, it takes only a few minutes to remove the oils, chlorine and lotions which can break down the fibres of your swim suit and fade the colours over time. You can even wash your suit in your hotel sink while traveling with our single use pods! We recommend our LavenderGrapefruit or Jasmine scents for their naturally antiseptic properties.

Single Use Pods of Eucalan are great for travel.

Spa Day for Luxe Lingerie & Active Wear

Luxe lingerie deserves the very best to preserve it for years to come. Just as you would treat yourself to a spa day, why not show your extra special pieces some TLC?

Eucalan brings to mind a “spa-like” atmosphere. The natural formula, free from dyes, optical brighteners, enzymes, bleach and synthetic fragrances, shows well in the natural bottle. The bottle itself is see-through, showing  that we are transparent: there’s nothing to hide. Most people feel refreshed when they use Eucalan, which can be attributed to the light, natural essential oil fragrances which scent the air and your delicate garments as well as the fact that laundering with Eucalan couldn’t possibly be any easier.

Active wear lasts longer when properly cared for; visit the Eucalan blog for easy to follow instructions.

Giving lingerie, swimwear and active wear a quick wash in the basin is not a laborious task. A quick dip and squeeze is all it takes (click here to view our complete care instructions over on our website). Because Eucalan is free from all the harsh stuff other cleaners have, there’s no need to rinse the product out – in fact, our lanolin-enriched formula will condition and soften your luxe and specialty fibres. Better yet, our gentle, natural formula won’t dull colours or break down the elastic. In fact, your stretchy garments need that quick bath to remove body oils, perfumes and lotions so they can go back to their original shape, which will help them to last longer.

We have four great scents, plus a natural fragrance-free option. For the ultimate spa experience, we recommend our Lavender and Jasmine scents. Click each image below to learn more on our website!

Bathing Suit Do’s &Don’ts

swimwear2014You’ve followed this year’s trends and found the perfect swimsuit for Summer 2014 – that’s already a “do”! Now you just have to keep it looking great all season long by avoiding these don’ts:

  • Even if your swimsuit is white, don’t use bleach! Bleach is a sure-fire way to damage fibres and reduce the life of your suit.
  • Don’t machine-wash your swimsuit! This causes pilling and also breaks down fibres.
  • After each use, don’t forget to wash your suit in a mild detergent such as Eucalan to remove sweat, salt, chlorine, sunblock, bacteria and sand.
  • Don’t stretch out your suit by using a clothes dryer or hanging it up to dry! It’s best to use a towel to squeeze out the remaining water, then lay flat to dry out of direct sunlight.
  • Don’t use the same suit every day. Your swim suit will need 24 hours to regain shape, and it’s best to wait until it’s 100% dry before using it again.

No need to be intimidated by the above list – caring for swimwear is easy with Eucalan, we promise! In the short tutorial video below, Eucalan‘s managing director Jennifer Edgar shares easy-to-follow tips to keep your swimwear, workout gear and other technical fibres looking their best:
