The popularity of cruising has grown significantly in the past few years, with many generations opting for the all-inclusive relaxation lifestyle that cruising offers. With the chance to sit back and relax your cares away as a ship equipped with all your needs takes you from one destination to the next, it is hard not to see why this has become so popular.
With all this relaxation and comfort, you would want to spend your days looking great yet feeling comfortable, and nothing is more comfortable than a Kaftan.
Throw it on over your swimwear, glam it up with some jewelry and pants or leggings and you will have the simplest, most comfortable and versatile item in your wardrobe.
Spend your days doing what you want to do instead of planning a wardrobe by putting on a Kaftan in seconds and going about your day. It’s perfect for trips to the Spa, pool, sauna or for lounging in the sun.
You won’t feel constrained by tight clothing, nor will you feel self-conscious about evidence of a full tummy after enjoying the delights of the buffet. The fabric is soft and flowing and feels beautiful against your skin.
Available in different lengths, you can create a different look depending on your occasion such as full length for evenings, shorter for day time.
Just because the weather has turned a little chilly, doesn’t mean you can no longer head out for a swim at the local pool or beach. Staying active year-round is important for your health and can boost your endorphins, making you less stressed and more happy. (And who wouldn’t want that?!)
Many cities and major towns now have indoor swimming facilities which are available for use yearly, with most having heated facilities to fight the chill.

At Seabird Swimwear, unlike many major retailers, we sell swimwear all year round, so you can find a gorgeous pair of cozzies in the size and colour you want, not just what’s left on the clearance rack!
At Seabird Swimwear all of our swimwear is made using chlorine proof fabric, yet do you really know what that means, and how chlorine can affect your swimwear?
Chlorine is a nightmare for fabrics, causing it to bleach colours or break down and weaken the fibres of the fabric, resulting in stretching and bagginess or degraded elastic.
This article says ‘Swimming in a chlorinated swimming pool is effectively equivalent to soaking your swimsuit in bleach for a couple of hours’, and explains the typical ‘5 stages of grief’ one feels when discovering that swimsuit is on a rapid downhill decline.
It also says that you must accept this inevitable decline, however, when you buy a chlorine proof swimsuit from Seabird Swimwear, you can rest assured your swimsuit will last the season and beyond, unlike cheap lycra alternatives that have you running to replace them just a few months after purchasing.
Chlorine proof swimwear maintains its fit, keeping comfortably snug and the colours maintain their brightness, giving you a much longer lasting product than most.
There are steps to further optimise the life of your product and ensure it remains looking as good as the day you purchased it, by washing in SOAPY water using a mild detergent immediately after taking off your swimsuit. Also, avoid using fabric softener as this can also break down the elastic and fabric too.
Don’t bleach, iron, tumble dry or dry clean your swimsuit and avoid wringing the swimsuit out to dry as this can cause the fabric to stretch.
