How to Prevent Burns from Swimsuit Underwire & Hardware

Learn how to prevent burns caused by bathing suit underwire and hardware with the tips from swimsuit expert Candace Draper in this Howcast video.


Hello, My name is Candance Draper and I'm a fit expert here at Canyon Beachwear. Everyone that works here at Canyon Beachwear is a fit expert. We know everything there is to know about bikinis. It's kinda eat, breath, sleep bikinis. So we're like the girlfriend you forgot to bring into the store. You can also find us online or at you can find us on Facebook and twitter as well under canyonbeachwear and today we're gonna be talking about swimwear. One of the number one questions we get here at Canyon Beachwear is how to prevent burns from your swimwear hardware or your swimwear underwire. First off, with your underwire, you definitely want to put a lot of sunscreen in that area and try not to stay out in the sun for too long. If you're in the sun for an hour or more, you're definitely going to get burned. Give yourself a rest, put some shade over you, or jump in the water but try not to pass out in the sun if you got underwire in your bathing suit. As for hardware, the designers have made it nice and easy for us. Vix, for example, puts metal on their bikinis but they give you the option of taking it off. So you can either slide the metal piece off the bikini or you can just slide it to the top of your neck and down when you're not in the sun. Another great designer is Vitamin-A. They offer a brushed metal that they've actually coated with a sunscreen sealant so you can stay out forever and it's not going to get hot. As a matter of fact, I have about three or four of these suits and they stay nice and cool. This is a great alternative if you want to be out in the sun all day long but you still want to rock the cool hard-wear look.
