Swimsuits come in a wide range of styles and materials for men, women, and children for use during recreational swimming, sports or other water-based activities. Some swimsuits are designed for specific water sports such as competitive swimming, water polo, diving, surfing, and water skiing.
Most swimsuits are made from lightweight, non-absorbent and quick-drying fabrics such as nylon, cotton, spandex, and polyester, making them easy to pack and ship. Here are some tips on how to properly pack and ship swimsuits to ensure that they arrive in excellent condition.
Small items such as swimming trunks, bikinis, tankinis and mailots can be folded neatly, placed in a Ziploc bag and inserted inside a padded mailer.
Bulkier items such as padded swimsuits, padded bras, board shorts or items that may not fit in a mailer should be boxed for shipping. Bras with underwire support should also be boxed as the wire can poke through and damage a mailer.
Boxing is also the best way to pack when shipping several pieces in one package. Use fillers such as bubble wrap and tissue paper to keep the items from shaking inside the box.
Make sure to close the package and seal securely with heavy-duty packing tape to ensure that nothing will “fall out” during transit. Attach appropriate addresses and labels to the package before taking it to your local post office or shipping company.
