Swimsuits Last Longer

CALIA by Carrie Underwood switched to premium LYCRA® XTRA LIFE™ technology because it provides extra flexibility for all-day comfort, freedom of movement, and super shape retention that resists bag and sag. Best of all, this swimwear resists damage from chlorine, UV rays, heat, lotions and oils, which means it will last up to 10 times longer than swimwear made with unprotected spandex.

Fun, flirty and fashionable, the swim line features a range of styles including one-piece swimsuits, bikinis, tankinis, cover-ups, and rash guards for women.
