How do your swimsuits and clothes fit?

Click HERE to see our size guide.

Our bathing suits have moderate coverage and are made to support your active lifestyle. Suits should be tight and supportive but not squeezing.

A lot of our solid colored beach and lounge wear is made of swimwear fabric, which contains the same quick-drying capability as our suits. They can go over a wet suit and you do not have to spend the rest of the day cursed with wet spots.

Most of our clothes are made to be easy and flowing. You do not have to be uncomfortable to look great.

Please fill out our Personal Shopper questionnaire so we can help find the best options to highlight your body.

If you have any questions about a specific item of clothing, there is an Ask A Question button on every product in our online store. Someone from our team will get back to you ASAP.

How do I best care for my Flagpole swimsuit?

Our bathing suits are made to last.

Taking proper care of your swimwear is easy and can ensure the longevity of your suit.  We recommend hand washing your swimsuit in lukewarm to cold water with a mild detergent. Do not let your suit soak in detergent for long periods of time (we recommend approx. ten minutes) as this can cause colors to bleed. Hang or lay your suit flat to dry. Do not put your suit in a dryer as this can damage the fibers of the elastic.

Please be sure to refer to the care tag in the garment.

And how do I care for Flagpole resort wear?

For clothing made from swimwear fabric we recommend hand washing in lukewarm to cold water with a mild detergent. Do not soak the garment in detergent for long periods of time (we recommend approx. ten minutes) as this can cause colors to bleed. Hang or lay your clothes flat to dry. Performance fabric can be washed on the delicate cycle in cold water, but please do not put your garment in a dryer as this can damage the fibers of the elastic. 

For our knits and poly fabric we recommend dry cleaning to ensure the longevity of your clothes, as these fibers are more susceptible to wear and tear.
