How does the fabric work?
The unique patent-pending fabric used in Cooltan tan-through swimwear is made with a special knitting technology that creates millions of tiny pores in the fabric. These pores allow approximately half of the sun's light to pass through to approximately the same degree as a medium level sunscreen.

Do the suits have a lining?
Yes. The there is a small front panel in the suits for increased modesty. 
Can you sunburn through the suit?
Yes. The fabric works like a medium level sunscreen, and it is possible to burn though this level of sun protection. Please use caution in the sun. Please moderate your initial exposures to the sun until you have a base tan that will help protect you further from sunburn. Remember, vacations should be fun!

Can you see through the Swimsuits?
Cooltan Swimsuits are not see-through when wet, nor when dry. Although it is a lightweight fabric, it is not see-through when worn. 
Where are the suits made?
All Cooltan swimsuit fabric, as well as the suits themselves are made in the USA! The best place in the world to get really great quality at a great price!

How do the sizes run?
Women's Cooltan suits run small. Technically, they are true to size measurements, but many other swimwear companies sell swimwear that runs much bigger than true, so our suits run small in comparison. When selecting your size, please remember that the suits should fit comfortably, and should not be tight.

 

Does the material dry quickly?
Cooltan swimsuits dry quickly both when you wear them and after you wash them, making them extra comfortable, and a great travel suit!

Is the fabric comfortable to wear?
Yes. The fabric is smooth, and in addition, the porous nature of the fabric allows your skin to breathe, which keeps you cool by letting perspiration evaporate quickly.
How fast can you tan through the fabric?
Best way to achieve an all over tan, is to use an SPF lotion of 6 to 10 (or higher as needed) on skin which is not covered by the suit.

Can the suits be worn in a tanning salon?
Yes, but depending on the type of lamps used and their placement, the SPF level of the fabric can range from 2 to 20. A pretty wide range! So please be sure to limit your initial exposure to determine what your results will be with each particular tanning device.
Are your suits offered in solid colors?
Yes, but right now we only make solid-color suits for special orders. We hope to have a retail line of solid colors by next year.

Can you wear them for water sports?

 

Yes. The fabric used in Cooltan suits is has an exceptionally high resistance to pool chemicals and ocean salt. In addition, the pores in the fabric prevent water from building up inside the suit, which is an advantage for competitive swimmers.
How do you wash the suits?
Cooltan Tan-Through suits are fully machine washable!! They are NOT affected by pool chlorine or ocean salt. Pretty cool huh?

What does SPF mean?
It is meant to be a guide to how much time you can spend in the sun. For example, if you normally burn after an hour in the sun, then with SPF 6 protection, you would get the same burn after 6 hours, asuming you re-apply lotions every hour or so. More importantly, if you have any concern at all about sunburn, please use caution in the sun. On vacation, please reduce your initial exposure to a time span you might think is absurdly short. You will have much more fun if you avoid getting too much sun too fast!
