Garment Care

All hologram, foil, and “effects” fabrics are subject to loss of shine with wear and repeated washings. 
These fabrics will lose shine in wear areas such as the seat, under the arms, and at the abdomen.  Avoid abrasion.  Light colors combined with black or dark colors are subject to color transference or bleeding and
must be laundered carefully to lessen the possibility of this occurring.

Follow these directions carefully to avoid these problems on all “effects” fabrics (including those with rhinestones).  Turn the garment inside out.  Hand wash only, with a mild liquid detergent in large quantities of cold water.  DO NOT use Woolite or detergents containing bleach.  DO NOT use fabric softener. Remove quickly, do not soak.  Roll in a towel to remove excess water, and hang to dry.

For all other fabrics, machine wash gentle cycle in cold water.  Do not use bleach or fabric softener. Tumble dry low heat, remove promptly.

Hair spray and deodorants may cause staining to delicate fabrics.  Wash carefully after each wearing.  Damp leotards that are left in gym bags are subject to color transference or bleeding.

Custom Quick Ship Leotards

Custom quick ship leotards are custom made to your specifications and are not returnable or exchangeable, for any reason, including wrong size ordered. Custom quick ship leotards ship within 15 business days of date ordered. It is the customers responsibility to select upgraded shipping, if desired. It is the customers responsibility to address sizing concerns, and order try on for size leotards, where applicable. We do not accept coupons of any amount on custom quick ship leotards, nor are discounts offered on any style in this collection.

For custom orders, a link to pay will be emailed from Garland Activewear. We accept credit card or ACH. It is the customers responsibility to pay the order invoice in a timely manner so as to not delay production and shipment. Production does not begin on custom orders without a minimum of 50% deposit.
