FAQS

Why the name Beach Glam®?

Beach Glam® was chosen to encapsulate our collection of glamorous beachwear. Hence we extracted the word “beach” from beachwear and the word “glam” from glamorous to formulate the name Beach Glam®.

 

Who is Beach Glam® intended for?

Beach Glam® is intended for the woman who wants to command the attention of a room when she walks in. She knows what looks good on her body and makes her feel confident. She wears her beachwear either at the beach, at the pool, lounging on a yacht, or when hosting guests at her vacation home. She can be of any age and is always glamorous yet elegant.

 

What does Beach Glam® sell?

Beach Glam® sells beachwear and complementary beachwear accessories. Also, limited edition swimwear starting Summer 2016

What fabric is the beachwear made of?

To ensure the finest quality beachwear for all our customers, all of our beachwear is made of silk. The Animal Print Beach sarongs are made of a silk blend fabric, whereas the other caftans and sarongs are all 100% silk.

 

How do I care for my beachwear?

Each component of the Beachwear Bundle® has different care instructions. See below:

Beach Sarong Care Instructions:

Hand-wash your silk sarong with cold water. Any stains or marks should be rubbed with a sponge or a brush. Note on Silk in General: It is important to avoid soaking silk if it has a flame resistant-finish. Hang your sarong to dry – away from the sun and direct heat.

 

Beach Tunic Care Instructions:

It is recommended that you dry clean your silk tunic to prevent the beading from being damaged. Alternatively, you may hand-wash your caftan and rub any stains or marks with a sponge or brush (similar to the care instructions for the beach sarong). Keep in mind that hand-washing beaded caftans is not the preferred care method since extra caution is required to prevent the beading from being damaged.

 

Beach Bag Care Instructions:

Delicately use a sponge or damp cloth to remove any stains or marks that appear on the beach bag at first appearance. Stains that set on the interior or exterior of the bag may become difficult to remove if not immediately cared for.

 

Beach Hat Care Instructions:

Cleaning Light Colored Straw Hats, you will need:

  • Soft bristle brush
  • Hydrogen peroxide
  • Warm water
  • Small spray bottle
  • Soft cloth

 

The Cleaning Process:

  1. Brush the hat thoroughly, but gently, with the soft bristle brush to remove excess dirt and debris.
  1. In a small spray bottle, mix 1 part hydrogen peroxide with 1 part water. You will not need a lot to do an entire hat.
  1. Spray the solution on a soft cloth.
  1. Wipe the cloth over the entire hat (make sure you test a small, inconspicuous area first to make sure the hat can tolerate the solution without any discoloration).
  1. For stubborn stains, spray the solution directly on the stain and wipe. Be careful not to saturate the straw with solution as this may cause the hat to shrink.

Cleaning Dark Colored Straw Hats, you will need:

  • Soft bristle brush
  • Household ammonia
  • Warm water
  • Small spray bottle
  • Soft cloth

 

The Cleaning Process:

  1. Brush the hat thoroughly, but gently with the soft bristle brush to remove excess dirt and debris.
  1. In a small spray bottle mix 1/2 teaspoon of ammonia with ¼ cup of water and shake well. NOTE: Always exercise caution when using ammonia. It is a chemical substance and if handled incorrectly, can be hazardous.
  1. Spray the solution on a soft cloth.
  1. Wipe the cloth over the entire hat (make sure you test a small, inconspicuous area first to make sure the hat can tolerate the solution without any discoloration).
  1. For stubborn stains, spray the solution directly on the stain, and wipe. Be careful not to saturate the straw with solution as this may cause the hat to shrink.

To spruce up the color of a dark colored straw hat, add about 1 teaspoon of rubbing (isopropyl) alcohol to a cup of water, dampen a piece of dark-colored velvet with the solution, and rub it on to the straw hat.

What can I expect from Beach Glam® collections each year?

The Founder of Beach Glam®, Ms. Ama Addae is also the head Designer. She draws her inspiration from her life journeys:

  • Trinidad, where she grew up, brings to mind the warm Caribbean Sea and its waves crashing on the shore.
  • The Mediterranean, her favorite travel destination is where she vividly remembers magical sunsets, such as those seen when on vacation in Mallorca.
  • Tanzania, where she took a safari trip, is one which she considers unforgettable. It was so breathtaking that it inspired the “Animal Print" collection which epitomizes her love for exotic animals.

 There are so many other places that have inspired her which she plans to incorporate in the forthcoming Beach Glam® collections. She looks forward to sharing her designs with you for glamorous beachwear which portrays your beach style.
