Charlie said she was really surprised that a swimsuits colour would transfer considering what they are supposed to be for – but was even more alarmed as she hadn’t even been in the water and this one began to run.
‘You would expect a swimsuit to not run – especially when it hasn’t even got into the water yet!’
The stain she was left with was hard to remove: ‘It was really hard to wash off my skin and left my skin red from having to try so hard to get it off! PLT apologised but didn’t say more than that.’
