How To Care For Your Dolce & Gabbana Beachwear
Dolce & Gabbana beachwear can be hand washed in lukewarm water with a mild detergent. However, we would always recommend following the care instructions on each product’s label. The following tips can also help prolong the life of your beachwear.
Avoid soaking, bleaching or wringing out your beachwear
It is not recommended to dry the brand’s beachwear in the tumble dryer, instead products should drip dry in the shade
Bikinis and swimsuits should be rinsed immediately after use, and should not be left rolled up wet
As fake tanning products and sunscreen lotions may damage or mark fabric, take extra care when using these products and allow them to completely dry before you put on your beachwear
- Where is Dolce & Gabbana beachwear made?
All Dolce & Gabbana clothing is made in Italy, including the label’s beachwear. Expect each piece to be expertly crafted, from the pristine stitching down to the richly colored patterns used.
- Does Dolce & Gabbana beachwear run true to size?
The brand’s beachwear typically runs true to size, and we recommend you buy your usual size. Most of the brand’s bikini tops, bottoms and swimsuits feature tie fastenings or adjustable straps, which makes it easier to personalize how it fits comfortably. Dolce & Gabbana kaftans are also true to size but are often cut for a loose fit.
- What Dolce & Gabbana beachwear will suit me?
When looking for beachwear that suits your shape, you can look for pieces that emphasize your best bits. If you have a straight body shape and you are looking to create the illusion of curves, you can opt for a two-piece with ruffles across the chest. Those with pear shapes may find swimwear with padded cups and high-waisted bottoms are some of the most flattering.
If you have an hourglass figure, try one-pieces with cut-out sides, and bikinis with bold prints and colors. Double-strap bikinis or bandeau tops with hidden support are ideal for those with a larger bust, as well as those with full cups, wider straps and balconette silhouettes. Bikini bottoms with ruffles or bright patterns will also draw attention away from those with top-heavier proportions.
