So, I bought an awesome swimsuit yesterday, and I was a little iffy on the color (it's light pink, and Im kinda pink myself). DH confirmed that it is not my color (in a nice way). Basically it is an awesome suit, fits great (and that is hard to find...really hard. I tried on over 20 swimsuits) but the color just doesnt look good on me. I'm thinking of dying it with Rit royal blue. I know that Rit dyes nylon, but my question is:
What happens when you get in the pool? Will I bleed blue dye everywhere?

SIDS happens.

I'm pretty sure you won't walk out of the pool with a royal blue trail in a light pink swim suit ;-). My ds's lacrosse stick is nylon, was dyed with RIT and been wet/muddy/ snowy more times than I like to count. Still royal blue.

Oh good. That was my fear smile.gif I know chlorine isnt as strong as I think it is. I'm going to try it, and I'll report back. Maybe with pictures!
