Need-to-know pool rules

1. Buying online

If it’s your first time shopping with the e-retailer and you’re unsure of the fit, read the customer reviews.

2. Be aware

Some retailers do not offer refunds on swimwear for hygiene reasons so ask before purchasing.

3. Take pictures

Use a variety of angles and lighting to see what your costume looks like and if it flatters your shape.
