Care Instructions

MYBODY

The MyBody products are made with varying compositions of ENKA® Viscose, ELITÉ® Polyester, and Lycra (Polyamide, Elastane).

Viscose fiber is highly absorbent, has good wear resistance, does not generate static buildup,  is relatively inelastic and is weakened when wet. Pure polyester, unlike viscose, is resistant to pilling, wrinkle and abrasion, is not absorbent and does not shrink at normal temperatures. Polyamide is strong and durable,  but also has low moisture absorbency. It has tendency to pill, absorbs and holds body oils, and easily collects static electricity. Elastane adds extra strength and elasticity. Since this is a blended fabric, it inherits properties such as breathability, absorbency, elasticity, and durability. This makes it stronger and easier to care for, but in order to protect the garment and keep it in the best condition, it is important to care for it in the following ways.

It is recommended to either dry clean or handwash MyBody products. All  MyBody dresses are dry clean only. All tops and leggings can be handwashed or dry cleaned.

To avoid risks of shrinkage and distortion, hand wash with cold or lukewarm water (maximum 20° C). Do not use bleach. To remove stains, you can carefully rub the stained area with a mild detergent for a few minutes in order to not damage the material.  If you opt for machine washing, you should turn the garment inside out and place it in a mesh washing bag to preserve the color and to avoid snags and tears.

Do not tumble dry. Air dry flat in the shade. Remember to not twist or wring wet the garment as this can damage it.

To remove wrinkles, we recommend steaming for the best and safest finish. If using an iron,  put it on the reverse side while it is still damp. You should select the « Silk » program or set it to 110°C max. For extra precaution, put a wet cloth on top while ironing.

Dresses should be stored hung and for long-term storage should be put in a garment bag made of a breathable material such as cotton to prevent bugs and mildew.

Tops and bottoms can either be stored folded or hung.

SWITCHWEAR

Prime Layers - Tops, Hoodies, and Leggings

These pieces are made with  ENKA® Viscose  and Lycra.

Viscose is highly absorbent, has good wear resistance, generates no static buildup, is relatively inelastic and is weakened when wet, while Lycra has good strength and elasticity. Since a majority of the composition is made of Viscose, we should treat it as such and wash accordingly.

It is recommended to either dry clean or handwash the Tops, Hoodies and Leggings.

Duchesse Add-ons

The Duchesse Add-ons are made with 100% recycled polyester.

Polyester is a strong and durable fiber that has good elasticity, color- fastness and can be permanently pleated.  It is also wrinkle resistant, resistant to shrinking, easy to wash and dries quickly. However it does attract static electricity, dust and is sensitive to heat.

It is recommended to hand wash or dry clean the duchesse add-ons. Make sure to wash with warm or cool water and only with like colors and fabrics. To eliminate static and keep clothing soft, you can add a fabric softener every other wash.

Do not tumble dry. Hang to air dry.

Polyester is resistant to wrinkles but if needed, iron at a low temperature (110°C max).

Store on a hanger. For long term storage, put inside a garment bag made of breathable material such as cotton to protect the clothes from bugs and mildew.

SWITCHWEAR PYJAMAS

The Pyjama Separates are made with 100% pure silk twill. Natural silk has high elasticity, high absorbency, and good thermal properties. It also has great resilience (wrinkles tend to fall out themselves) but is very sensitive to heat. While expensive, if treated properly, silk has the ability to last decades making it an inherently sustainable fabric. Use the following tips to make keep your pjs feeling bright and happy.

Dry clean only. Do not attempt to clean the garments in a washer, even on a gentle cycle. Silk is very fragile when wet and excessive agitation can damage the fibers.

If using an iron,  put it on the reverse side while it is still damp. You should select the « Silk » program or set it to 110°C max. For extra precaution, put a wet cloth on top while ironing.

Store on a hanger. Do not use a metal hanger as it can stain or leave rust on the fabric.  Also, do not hang over direct heat or in the sun as it can cause the color to fade. For long term storage, put inside a garment bag made of a breathable material such as cotton to protect the clothes from bugs and mildew.

SUPERTECH-SUPERCHIC

SuperTech-SuperChic products are made with Meryl® Skinlife Force (Nylon microfibers), and Elastane.

These special nylon microfibers are soft, breathable, and highly absorbent. They also have good wear resistance and elastic recovery, but some of the fabrics are prone to wrinkles and static electricity. Elastane adds extra strength and flexibility. These compositions make it a very durable and easy-to-care for fiber, but in order to protect the garment and keep it in the best condition, it is important to care for it in the following ways.
