  • Pool water can fade swimsuit colors, even hair colors if you just got it done.

  • Yes, and it can deteriorate the fabric as well. Always rinse it out as soon as possible after swimming.

  • Sure can. Our high school had an indoor pool and we swam every other day from Thanksgiving to Easter. I started with an orange bathing suit and ended with a green suit!

  • Yes, sadly the colors start to fade, all you can do is either wear something older and not worry about it if it fades and such or have to replace your swimming suit once a year.

  • yes it can one thing I was always told to do is after you get done swimming rinse your swimsuit out in warm water and ring it out with a towel and that would have preserve the colors
