Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie

It's the Self-drying Nano Bikini!



A long awaited advancement in swimwear, Sun Dry Technologies, a division of Solestrom International, has launched a line of swimwear that dries itself instantly. Sun Dry Swim™ features quick dry nanotechnology enhanced swimwear fabric that sheds water as naturally as skin. Water beads off Sun Dry water repellent swimwear, after wearing the suits are simply shaken to dry.

Amy Hardin, Sun Dry Technologies explains the technology as "Optimal technical performance paired with ultimate comfort. Sun Dry Swim fabrics are treated using our proprietary methods with a nanotechnology process that is inert, UV stable, and completely harmless to skin. Our non-toxic nanotechnology treatment is water based and environmentally friendly."

Sun Dry Swim™ fabric has an invisible nanotechnology mesh around each fabric fiber, creating a permanent water repelling material without interfering with the fabric weave. This effect creates an easy to clean, breathable protected surface with water resistant properties, the material cannot soak up liquid, while the fabric still looks and performs like top quality swimsuit fabric.
