Why Choose Chlorine Resistant Swimwear?

Just because we’re heading into winter, doesn’t mean we’ve stopped our daily swims. In fact, with pools turning up the heat, it’s the perfect time to take a refreshing dip. Finish with a hot shower and you’re off to a fantastic start to the day.

Using public pools everyday is great for the mind, body, and soul, but can take a toll on your swimwear. Heat and pool chemicals eat away at the fibres of standard swimwear fabrics, damaging the elasticity, fading the colour, and causing your swimsuit to lose its shape.

If you’re using heavily chlorinated and heated pools regularly, it is essential that you invest in chlorine resistant swimwear that is made to withstand these harsh conditions. Capriosca Swimwear is one of the leading chlorine resistant swimwear brands in Australia, with an extensive range of pool safe swim separates to suit your needs.

What makes a swimsuit chlorine resistant?

When shopping for chlorine resistant swimwear, look for 100% polyester fabric. Polyester chlorine resistant swimwear fabric is the most durable option when it comes to pool safe swimwear.

100% polyester does not include Spandex or Lycra which give regular swimsuits their stretch. These fibres are easily damaged by chlorine and heat, which is why we don’t use them in our chlorine resistant styles.

Without the addition of extra stretch fibres, 100% polyester can fit a little firmer. With this in mind we recommend sizing up if you are in between sizes.


Now that you know why you need them and what to look for, let us take you through the collection to help you find the perfect chlorine resistant bathers for your daily swims.

Capriosca Swimwear continues to lead the way in the plus size swimwear arena, with many of our chlorine resistant styles extending to size 30.

Chlorine resistant long sleeve swimsuit

Consider this new take on the one piece which is ideal for swimming in your local pool. Our chlorine resistant long sleeve offers warmth, sun protection, and coverage in either a full length or ¾ sleeve option.

With only one piece to bother with, these long sleeve bathers aren’t going anywhere. Once they’re on, there’s no need to adjust or fuss with your swimsuit. Just get out there and enjoy your swim.

Chlorine resistant tankini tops

If you prefer the ease of a two piece swimsuit, our chlorine resistant collection includes tankini tops in a variety of styles. A tankini is great if you are a different size top and bottom, or if you like the practicality of swim separates.

Our supportive tankini tops are available in underwire and shelf bra styles depending on your preferred bust fitting. Choose from sleek designs that skim the body or go for ruffles to hide your bust, belly, and hips.

Chlorine resistant rashie

Another fabulous chlorine resistant swim separate to consider is the long sleeve rash vest. Our chlorine resistant rashie features a full length sleeve and zip front closure. This practical piece is ideal to keep on hand when you need coverage, sun protection, or warmth.

You can even keep it dry to put on when spending time out of the pool. Made from the same 100% polyester fabric as the rest of the chlorine resistant range, this stylish wet shirt can be used in so many different ways.
