CARE INSTRUCTIONS

ANCORA SM suits are made of the finest imported fabrics from Colombia and Italy, and there are trims and appliances that are delicate in nature. Many of our suits are like fine lingerie and must be cared likewise. All ANCORA suits can be worn in pool or ocean water; however, they are not intended for arduous physical water activity or long periods of time in heavily chlorinated water. All swimwear should be hand washed separately in cold water with very mild soap (we recommend specialty lingerie detergent) immediately after use. Lie flat separately or hang to dry.
