    DO YOU HAVE A STORE?
    At this time we are strictly an internet catalog company only. We ask that you place your order online at www.1WorldSarongs.com. Your online order will ship fast and you should get your package very quickly. Shipping times for local customers here in Southern California vary but deliveries are usually made within 1 to 3 business days from receipt of order (mention in comments of checkout when you need your package). Factors in shipping times include time your order is received to our shipping department (early orders tend to ship out same day and orders after 1 PM usually ship out the next day), the amount of orders we receive and the final destination of shipment all effect the time it takes to get your package. We hope this helps and please let us know if you have any questions.

    WHAT FABRIC ARE THE SARONGS?
    Most of our sarongs are the lightweight top quality sarong rayon fabric with a thread count of 70/42 or 68/38. These are denoted with a KD in the code. Such as SARONG-KD-SOLID-BLACK. Most of our sarongs are the lightweight sarong fabric and can be found throughout our website. Or you can do a search here:

    www.1worldsarongs.com/sarongs1.html

    Our other sarong fabric that we carry are the rayon fabric with a thread count of 80/60 which is a top quality heavier weight but still light enough to everyday wear. This sarong fabric has a PT in the code. For example SARONG-PT-DRAGON

    We use rayon, first cause it drapes well. Second cause it breathes great. Third cause it feels wonderful and finally, it is affordable to most everyone. You can find some of our heavyweight sarongs by doing a search here:

    www.1worldsarongs.com/pe1co.html

    The sheerness of the fabric depends mostly on three things. First, the thread count (how thick the fabric is), secondly the color of the fabric (black sarongs are less sheer then white sarongs) and finally how bright is the light source. In general a lightweight sarong will in white will be more sheer and see through then say a black lightweight sarong. If you have a red bikini on and wear a white heavyweight sarong you will still be able to see the bikini, but just not as much.

    For your question about cotton, yes we do have cotton sarongs. We usually offer the traditional Indonesian sarongs in cotton found at this link:

    www.1worldsarongs.com/cottonsarongs.html

    Cotton doesn't really drape well and is a higher cost so it's not the choice of fabric for sarongs. Cotton can be somewhat more durable and gives a feeling of breath ability but in our experience the rayon seems to flow and breath better.

    Also we have a limited amount of Polyester sarongs. But because polyester is made from petroleum we try to stay away from it. The world has enough problems caused by petroleum. We don't need to encourage more consumption of this fabric.

    Soon we will be offering silk sarongs. Of course silk sarongs are more expensive but silk sarongs offer the best of all worlds. Silk sarongs are lightweight, breathable, drape, travel well, and are durable. Silk sarongs are also the most environmentally friendly or "green". The silk worm being the source of silk, and it's food being leaves. Plus silk sarongs feel the best. We'll be looking forward to having a silk sarong section just as soon as we design and find the right ones for our customers.

    WHAT SIZE SARONG DO I NEED?
    “How do I size a sarong? What size sarongs should I get? I’ve never worn a sarong before, is there any special size?” We hear those questions quite often.

    Well, don’t worry, we’ve been doing this for years now and sarongs are super easy to size, highly fashionable and lots of fun too. No need to be a Mensa member, just read below to find out how to size and wear your sarong.

    To begin with, you’ll need to know:

    - Your waist size – if you don’t know, take a string or measuring tape and wrap it around your hips or where you will tie the sarong (no fibbing)

    - You’re inseam or pant leg size or length from hip to heel

    Here’s how to size a sarong for wearing as a sarong skirt. Modern full sarongs average in rectangular size approximately 66” x 44” inches (66” x 22” for half sarongs) in length and width (not including fringe). So if a sarong measures 66” inches long, and your waist is 33” inches around, the sarong will wrap around you approximately twice (33” waist x 2 wraps = 66” length of sarong). In our experience this is the perfect length and is usually more than enough material for the petite to average person to wrap themselves in a sarong comfortably.

    As for covering your legs from the waist down, the sarong is 44” inches long from top to bottom (half sarongs are 22” inch, knee length for short skirts or kids). For example, if your waistline is 44” inches long (from hips to heel) or less, your sarong will cover you from your waistline to you sandals or bare feet.

    Wearing a sarong as a basic skirt is easy and requires less material and skill than wearing a sarong as a sarong dress or sarong neck knot dress. Also, to use a sarong around the bust area as a “bandeau” top requires slightly longer sarongs as well (or a skinnier torso ;-)

    So that’s pretty much it, you’re now “in the know” and ready to tie a sarong on. Can you feel the sand between your toes yet?

    We recommend that you check out our link on “How to Tie a Sarong”. This link gives instructions and examples for how to tie your sarong. Plus we have a few guides on how to tie your sarong you can download directly to your computer.

    The great things about sarongs is they are totally flexible…so in general if you have a little bit too much material…you can fold, tuck and drape it so it will still look flattering and good. Maintain a relaxed attitude and you’ll find your sarongs to be one of your best friends and additions to your wardrobe. Warning! Sarongs are habit forming and you may want to wear them all year round and even to work. So be careful, don’t say we didn’t warn you :-P

    Sarong ties are great accessories as well and wonderful to keep your sarong tied on. You don’t want your sarong falling down at the resort as you reach for your tropical drink with the little umbrella in it do you?

    Also, If you find your on the plus size or you want more material to work with, you may want to look at our plus sized sarongs or even our traditional sarongs which are a bit longer.

    HOW TO TIE A SARONG?
    How do you tie a sarong?, is the most frequently asked question. Tying a sarong is not as complicated as it may seem. Tying your sarong just takes a little patience, practice, experimentation and a relaxed attitude. One of the easiest methods is to tie your sarong as a skirt around your waist. However, sarongs can be utilized to make quick dresses, shawls, swimsuit cover-ups, scarves, turbans and much more. To help you get a better understanding of how to wear your sarong, check out our section.

    • Their website is very user friendly. There are lots of color & style choices and good photos to view them. The price is extremely reasonable and shipping was extremely prompt. I originally bought 1 sarong and liked it so much I ordered another one in a different color and several gauzy scarves to wear both with the sarongs or anytime. I highly recommend them and will buy from them again.

      - Words of Wisdom
    • I have already purchased several items from this merchant; for example: sarongs, jewelry, and sarong ties. The merchant as much as the products always meet my expectations. People who see what I buy from them, always praise the beauty and quality of the products. The pricing is very competitive; I can't find better prices. S&H is flawless too. On top of that, they offer products that are hard to find in the US, or not offered by anyone else -- that I know off-- like the sarong ties. For sure, I will keep on buying from 1 World Sarongs.
