Bleach will eat through polyester, thus rendering the garment unusable. The fabric itself isn't porous, so it doesn't accept dyes like other types of fabrics do.

Some experts know of a method to dye polyester, though it can be hazardous, complex, and requires extra heat: "Dyeing polyester is possible at home and requires using the immersion process. It can take some time, patience and careful skills. The key is to make sure the water is as heated as it needs to be and that you are using the most sufficient products in order to dye the fabric. If you are a beginner with dyeing fabric, it is best to start with cotton first and then work your way up to polyester." http://www.ehow  ster-fabric.html

Bleach is for natural fabrics like cotton. You will ruin the garment
