We are here to help! Below are some frequently asked questions but if you find you still have some questions, feel to free to message us on live chat or email us here.

Size & Fit

Yes, we do! You can find the sizing guide for each brand when you click the ‘Need help with sizing?’ button, directly under the available sizes listed on individual product pages.

Each size chart is uniquely created using the sizing information the brand has provided, and therefore, is as true to size as possible. Please read the product descriptions for any additional sizing information.

Our size chart is a flexible guide, which should help you find your best fit, offering a range of cup sizes from A to G. Although, if you're feeling like you're stuck in-between, we recommend reaching out to us on Live Chat, Email or Phone and talk to our Customer Service Team who are fit specialists and can help you best determine the right size. 

An important thing to remember is that you typically do want your swimwear to be a firm fit, as it will give with time in the water. 

Alternatively - there is always the option of buying both sizes, trying them on at home, and returning whatever size is not suitable. Remember, we have free returns!

For short torsos, we recommend going with styles that feature adjustable straps or halter neck designs.

For long torsos, styles with adjustable straps are also a great option. As well as halter neck styles and opting for a tankini top and matching bottom over a one piece. High necks are also a flattering choice and our hot tip, if you're after a one piece, is to pick a one piece with no seam under the bust!

Sizes listed on our website are predominantly Australian sizes, however sometimes the alpha size chart (S, M, L) is used. Refer to the size chart located on the product page by clicking ‘Need help with sizing?’.

On the size chart, you will see the far-left column has Australian sizes, Alpha, US, European, and product measurements to determine which size is best for you. Work your way from left to right across the rows to find a size that best fits you!

If you can find some string or yarn, wrap it around the part of your body that you want to measure and either mark a line or cut it at the end. Stretch out long besides a ruler.

Yes, of course! Please send us a message via live chat, email, or phone, and we'll do our best to help you find your perfect fit. 

Alternatively, you can also Book a Stylist (available both in-store and virtually), where you can receive free one-on-one styling from one of our swimwear stylists.

Don't panic! We offer free and easy returns/exchanges on all Australian online orders. So, if you have a swimsuit that's not quite the right fit, and you know what size you want to exchange for, simply fill out your returns form for the size you would like instead, ship it off to us, and we'll do the rest!

A removable cup is a piece of foam that can be removed from the internal pocket of some swimwear garments. Its main benefit is that it allows for versatility.

For example, when a cup is removed from a garment, a larger cup size can then fit, although the fit won't feel as structured. On the other hand, with the cup inserted, it allows for a flattering shape and provides modesty. The choice is yours with removable cups!

A soft cup and a moulded cup are quite similar. They are both stitched into the swimwear garment and cannot be removed.

A moulded cup is typically thinner and more structured, allowing for a wider range of cup sizes to fit into it (multi-fit cups use a moulded cup style). A soft cup is slightly thicker and more malleable, and therefore are used to create a flattering shape without as much support.

Powermesh is a strong and supportive internal lining that is smooth against the skin, and often provides a slimming effect on the wearer.

You can filter these products by selecting 'Tummy Control' under Feature filter.

Shoulder straps are key! Convertible straps are a beneficial way to increase bust support by crossing over the straps at the back, and by ensuring that they are tight and secure. The wider the shoulder straps, the more comfortable and supported you will feel in the swimsuit.

Product Information

Unfortunately, there are no guarantees that items will be re-stocked. But you can be notified by selecting 'notify me' on the size dropdown on product page.

100% polyester is the only chlorine resistant fabrication that will remain durable with frequent chlorinated use. Anything containing elastane is not chlorine resistant and is recommended to be avoided if you are swimming in a chlorinated pool daily. 

For 100% chlorine resistant styles, click here.

When choosing the right swimwear for you, it is important to think about where you will be wearing your swimwear. 

  • For the beach and home pools, you can choose from any of our swimwear.
  • If you are a regular lap swimmer in a home pool, pool-friendly styles with a percentage of polyester are a great option that will last longer than regular nylon swimwear.
  • Although, for regular swimmers in commercial pools or spas, we suggest selecting 100% polyester chlorine resistant styles, which ensures longevity.

Regardless of how you’ll be using your swimwear, please ensure you follow the instructions below to best care for your new swimwear.

Chemicals such as chlorine, sunscreen, perfume, deodorant, tanning products and perspiration can all cause staining and age your swimwear. For this reason, we do recommend applying sunscreen before putting on your swimwear to avoid transfer.

Period swimwear uses a carefully curated and innovative design, specially made to hold in leaks. And the best thing, no one would ever know it's that time of the month! Period swimwear looks and feels just like your regular swimwear.

Period swimwear typically combines three layers of material. A moisture wicking fabric that pulls moisture away from the skin, a middle layer that locks in leaks and absorbs menstrual blood and a waterproof outer layer. Modibodi's leak proof swimwear uses Modifier technology, a super slim stain resistant lining that uses these three layers.

How Much Protection Does Period Swimwear Offer?

Period proof swimwear is a great option for those who experience irregular periods and for teens entering puberty - saving them the embarrassment and use of uncomfortable tampons.

Period swimwear is recommended for those who experience light to moderate periods, being able to hold up to two teaspoons of fluid which is equivalent to two tampons. Designed to hold in menstrual blood on its own, the swimwear can also be worn alongside tampons and menstrual cups to offer an extra layer of protection on heavier days. Australian brands Love Luna and Modibodi offer a range of different absorbencies depending on your flow! If you are a regular lap swimmer we suggest checking out Chlorine Resistant period swimwear from Funkita and Slicks.

Care Instructions

In order to prolong the life of your swimwear, we recommend rinsing in cold water, or washing with a mild detergent. If the garment is machine washable, wash inside out in a garment bag on a gentle cold machine wash, using mild detergent with similar colours.

Other things to consider that will prolong the life of your swimwear:

  • Take out removable padding and unfasten before washing.
  • Remove any trapped sand by gently running your fingernail over your swimwear.
  • Dry your swimwear flat in the shade to prevent dyes running and deterioration of the fabric.
  • Do not bleach, tumble dry, iron or wring out.

To add on to the many benefits period swimwear offers, it is quick and easy to clean! Simply rinse under cold water until the water runs clear. 

Pop them in a wash bag, into the washing machine on a cold cycle (30 degrees max) and hang out to dry. It’s that easy!

General care of your Wovii Microfiber Towel

Wash your towels on a warm or cold wash cycle then dry them on the line in the shade or in a low heat tumble dryer. 

Don’t use bleach, iron them or send them off to the dry cleaners. Fabric softeners are also a no-no when it comes to towels (more on this down the page).

We recommend washing your Wovii before first use (see below) as minor blemishes might be present from the manufacturing process. However, these will disappear after a wash. 

Before using, we recommend you soak your Wovii overnight in a bucket of water with a ½ cup of table salt dissolved. The salt will naturally help to lock in the colour.  Then remember to wash as you would normally. Don't mix colours though, keep different colours in different buckets.

Keeping it bright

To help your bright coloured woviis keep their oomph, here’s a few suggestions:

  • Line dry them in the shade
  • Wash bright coloured towels separately
Divide and conquer 

Just like with other clothes, wash woviis with like colours. Never mix dark and light colours. 

Woviis and fabric softener don’t mix 

Using fabric softeners with woviis will reduce how well they can absorb water. Don't worry, unlike other towels, woviis will stay soft without it. 

Uh-oh! I used fabric softener with my Woviis. Are they ruined?

Not at all. Fabric softener just works by coating towels with a light film, which stops them from being as absorbent. Just wash them a few times, without fabric softener, and they'll regain their full drying power.

Speedo cannot guarantee that your Fastskin product will last forever. In order to ensure the longest life possible for your Fastskin suit each item should be handled according to the following Fastskin Care Instructions:

  • Keep away from sharp objects and long nails.
  • When putting the suit on try to use only the pads of your fingers.
  • Wearing the suit for racing only will prolong the lifespan of the suit.
  • Lay your suit out flat and re-shape it after use.
  • Rinse immediately in clean cold water after use. Chlorine will damage the suit over time.
  • Do not wash suit with any detergent.

Speedo Fastskin products have been specially developed using select materials and technologies to meet the demanding needs of athletes at the highest level the sport whilst racing.

Fastskin suits are tight fitting due to the compression and care must be taken when fitting.

  1. Fold out the silicone grippers on the legs of the suit before you put it on to ensure it doesn't stick to your skin.
  2. Do not pull on the thinnest parts of the suit, try to use the seams where possible.
  3. Pull the suit on straight, do not roll or stretch it.
  4. The hips are the biggest part of the body to get the suit over and should take the longest time.
  5. Once the suit is fitted correctly fold down the silicone grippers and you are ready to race.
