We want your garments to stay in good condition for as long as possible as I am sure that you do. Foil print and metallic garments may fade or dull with wear and repeated washing. Areas that incur friction or abrasion may show some loss of foil. This does not constitute a fault. To ensure your garments stay in “as good as new” condition please see the advice below on how to care for your garment and also the practices to avoid:
After wearing your leotard
It is best to take off your leotard as soon as you can after you have finished your session and to then turn it inside out. This is to allow any moisture to evaporate rather than be trapped within the leotard, Body fluids can discolour the leotard and so care needs to be taken to clean these from the garment as soon as possible.

What not to do….
Now that you’ve been told what not to do, here is what you can do…….
Please bear in mind:
Shimmer, Hologram and mesh fabrics are designed for competition leotard and therefore repeated wearing and washing may cause the fabrics to fade or lose foil. Foiled fabrics could be potentially be damaged due certain routines or excessive rubbing against abrasive equipment. Delicate fabrics can be affected by alcohol in products such as deodorants, perfume and hair products. Uric acid from perspiration and chemicals in deodorants may cause foil damage, we recommend antiperspirant deodorant.
A Star may refuse returns that have not been cared for as advised and will not guarantee any garment that is not washed and dried as directed.
