after wearing this coverup for all of maybe 10 min, to the beach and from the beach, it is already yellowing from sweat/sun/suntan lotion. you can't machine wash it and you can't bleach it..... so i'm at a loss. for the price I would expect the material to be a little more durable. It's a beautiful piece but simply not practical, at least not in white. I did end up putting it in the washing machine in a lingerie bag, laid flat to dry, and it seems fine but the stains STILL didn't come out and I wouldn't want to continue to put this in the machine repeatedly. I am going to have to try to work some magic on the stains but don't want to do this every time i wear it. I don't know when/how else you're supposed to wear this... to a place where you wear a bathing suit but don't sweat????
