3 Signs You Need to Replace Your Swim Trunks, Jacksonville East, Florida

As much as you love your favorite pair of swim trunks, they aren’t going to last forever, especially if you spend a lot of time at the beach or swimming pool. Here are a few signs that it’s time to snag a replacement pair before the weather warms up.

When to Get New Swim Trunks

1. Stretched Out Waistband

Extended use will often result in your swim trunks’ waistband getting stretched out. This occurs gradually when you pull on the elastic or if your body size changes. A stretched out waistband won’t keep your trunks in place well. You don’t want to spend your next boating trip worrying about retying your bathing suit and hoping it doesn’t slip off, so get a new, more reliable pair.

2. Faded or Discolored

Accidental exposure to bleach or other contaminants can also cause permanent discoloration. Replace these worn-out swimming trunks before your next group outing.

3. Strong Odor

No matter where you swim, your bathing suit will likely pick up a bit of a smell from the water. Swimming in the ocean leaves a saltwater smell, while dipping in a pond could result in more of an algae or fishy scent. Even a trip to the pool will leave your trunks smelling like chlorine. If the smell doesn’t go away even after repeated washings, it’s time for a new pair.
