A lace body-suit, a versatile piece of stretch fabric for women, is not just an everyday fashion item.
Body suit has long been the most popular and stylish article of clothing for women who want to feel sexy and confident. However, as time goes by, it faces many issues such as age, wear and tear, etc.
Here are some popular tips on how to care for your unitard:
1. Always store your body-suit (also known as unitard/leotard) in a cool, dry place.
2. Avoid exposing the leotard to direct sunlight or heat.
Lotion and Care
One way to make your lace unitard last longer is to take care of it. Apply lotion every day to keep it soft and supple. Avoid harsh, chemical-based products, which can damage the fabric.
If you get sweaty or wet, try not to sweat it out — take the body suit off and put it in the dryer on low heat. This will help to restore the padding and keep your body suit looking its best.
Try using a gentle detergent and warm water if you get a stain. Avoid using hot water, which can cause the fabric to shrink. Let the garment soak properly for a few minutes, and then rinse thoroughly.
One way to make your lace unitard last longer is to remove stains as soon as they appear. If you can catch the stain in time, you can often just wet it out and blot it dry. Here are some alternative ideas for you.
-Add one teaspoon white vinegar to a bowl and soak the stained area for 10 minutes.
-Mix one tablespoon of hydrogen peroxide with 3 cups of water and pour it over the stained area. Soak properly for 15 minutes and then rinse off.
-Mix 1 cup of baking soda with 2 cups of water and pour it over the stained area. Soak properly for 30 minutes and then rinse off.
Dry cleaning is a gentle process that helps to remove dirt, sweat, and other contaminants from the fabric. It also restores the colour and shape of the fabric.
If you do not have access to a dry cleaner, you can try washing your unitard in cold water with a mild detergent. If you do not have time to wash it, you can put it in the dryer on low heat for a few minutes. Be sure to always rinse it thoroughly afterwards to effectively remove all the soap residue.
How to keep your leotard from pilling
One of the most common problems with leotard wear is that they tend to pill. This happens when the fabric of the unitard starts to come apart, causing it to look messy and tattered.
Ensure you wash the body suit regularly and avoid leaving it in the dryer. Also, ensure you don’t wear it if it’s wet or humid.
Use a body-suit protector. These products are designed to help keep your unitard from becoming tattered and messier. They come in various forms, including spray bottles, sheets, and pads. Apply the protector before you put on your unitard and let it sit for a few minutes. This will effectively help to prevent the fabric from coming apart in the first place.
As a professional dancer, one of the most important things you can do to keep your unitard looking good is to take care of it. Follow these tips to help your lace body suit last longer and stay in good condition:
-Always hand-wash your body suit in cold water with mild soap. Gently shake out the excess water before placing it on the hanger.
-Avoid putting pressure on your dance costume’s shoulders, necklines, and spine; this will cause wear and tear over time.
