1. How do I care for my AOA?

Sun, salt, water, skin products and chlorine all take a toll on swim apparel. To ensure your AOA swimwear stays like new, we recommend hand washing with a gentle fabric soap following each use. Afterward, squeeze to eliminate excess water, remove, and lie on a rack to dry.

2. Where is AOA made?

AOA is designed, cut, sewn and packaged all in NYC from imported Italian fabrics.

3. What is AOA made of?

At AOA, our fabrication is most important. To create our pieces we use ECONYLⓇ, a 100% regenerated nylon fiber made from pre- and post consumer waste such as fishing nets and ocean plastics. Please see individual suits for a breakdown of fiber content.

4. What can I do if the item I want is sold out?

If there’s a sold out item you want, simply add your email to the waitlist by going to that product page, selecting the size you want, and entering your email. We’ll let you know as soon as it becomes available again!
