Customer Care

Q: Where is Summertime Somewhere manufactured? 

A: All swimwear is cut and sewn-to-order at our workshop in Gainesville, Florida. Fabrics are designed in-house and printed in the USA. We're passionate about producing high quality garments that fit beautifully and will last through many travels. Attention to detail is our top priority. Our team is highly skilled in sewing and construction and we love to create swimwear for you. 

Q: Is Summertime Somewhere produced sustainably?

A: Summertime Somewhere is slow-fashion, so each item is made-to-order or produced in small runs in an effort to reduce material waste. Our fabrics are printed using a digital process that consumes zero water and utilizes eco-friendly, non-toxic inks. 

Q: How long will it take for my order to be made?

A: Please allow up to 2-6 weeks for us to cut, sew and process your order before shipping. You will be notified when we ship your order. Need it sooner? Let me know and I will try to accommodate your expedited request (rush charges may apply).

Q: How do I choose a size for my order?

A: While wearing non-constricting clothing (like a soft bralette or bodysuit), use a measuring tape to find your bust, waist, and hip measurements (in inches) and compare to the size chart. Tips for accurate measuring: measure across the fullest part of your bust and hips, and the most narrow area of your waist. Don't pull the tape too tight or measure too loosely, hold the tape snuggly while allowing some room to breathe. 

If you are outside of the sizing range or are unsure which size to order please email us at shopsummertimesomewhere@gmail.com with your measurements and the style(s) you wish to purchase. 

Q: How do I wash my swimsuit?

Thank you for your purchase. Each swimsuit is handmade especially for you so please treat it with care by rinsing in cold water after use and air drying flat. You may spot treat stains with a gentle soap but please avoid bleach, detergent, or other chemicals. Enjoy your suit, but be conscientious where you sit while wearing to avoid snags from rocks or rough surfaces. 

Q: How are orders shipped?

A: Orders are shipped via USPS Priority Mail. We ship worldwide. Please let us know if you need an item by a specific date.

Q: May I return or exchange my order?

A: Every item is made-to-order, so we strongly encourage you to visit our size guide to find your best fit or contact us at shopsummertimesomewhere@gmail.com with any questions before placing an order.
