Where is your swimwear made?

Our swimwear is made in the U.S.A. of imported materials. Each Karla Colletto suit is designed and manufactured at our own U.S. facility.

How do I care for my suits?

Karla Colletto suits use Sensitive® fabrics which are made with Xtra Life Lycra® and offer chlorine resistance of up to 10 times more than traditional swim fabrics. Still, long-term exposure to chlorinated and saltwater without proper care can have damaging effects on your suit. Sunscreen, tanning oils, make-up, insect repellant, and other lotions can also damage or stain the suit, so please take special care when applying these products. We recommend hand washing your suit in cool water—especially if it has been exposed to saltwater, chlorine, or oily skin products—right after a day at the beach or pool. A mild lingerie or swimwear detergent works best. Please do not machine wash your suit and stay far, far away from bleach. Hang dry. Do not wring.

Can I wear my suit in the hot tub?

We do not recommend wearing your Karla Colletto suit in the hot tub, as the extreme temperatures and high concentration of chemicals can fade the colors of your suit and may cause the fabric to break down more quickly.

Do your suits provide any UV Protection?

All of our suits that are made from Sensitive® Fabrics, provide some UV protection. Unfortunately, like sunscreen, there is no swimwear fabric out there that can fully protect you from the sun’s rays. If you are planning on spending an extended period of time out in the sun, the only other thing we can suggest is to practice responsible sun protection, such as applying and reapplying sunscreen appropriate for your skin type, limiting exposure to the sun, and wearing a cover-up when possible throughout the day.

What should I do if I have a problem with my suit?

All of our suits are carefully inspected before leaving our facility; however, in the event that your suit is damaged, please contact the store from which you purchased the suit.
