  • Aquabelle's exclusive nylon fabric is made with Xtra Life Lycra spandex which resist chlorine 5-10 times longer than ordinary suits. Chlorine resistant & colorfast, retains fit, shape and looks new longer.
  • Scoopneck
  • Full encircled shelf bra with soft, wire-free molded cups
  • Signature power mesh tummy-control lining
  • Side-shirring detail
  • Sizes 8-16 fit up to a C/D cup; sizes 18-34 fit up to a D/DD cup
  • 82% Nylon / 18% Xtra Life Lycra spandex
  • Hand wash.
  • Flat dry.
  • After every use, the garment must be hand washed. Harmful elements such as suntan lotions, salt, chlorine, and body perspiration can cause discoloration and spandex breakdown. Since laundry detergents are too harsh on the spandex and the color, use mild hand soap made without added moisturizers. Do not wring the swimsuit to remove excess water. Lay it flat on a towel and roll the towel up and squeeze gently. Remove it from the towel and lay it flat to dry. Do not hang it to dry as that will stretch out the fibers in the fabric. Avoid using washers and dryers as damage can occur due to agitation and excessive heat. It is also important to let your suit "rest" between uses. This allows the spandex to bounce back (called recovery) to its original size and maintain its fit longer. If you wear a suit without letting it recover, it will lose its shape and fit more quickly. It's recommended to let the suit rest for 24-36 hours between uses. Always remove excess moisture with a towel and lay flat to dry indoors or in the shade. Also note, direct sunlight will fade your suit. It is always a great idea to have more than one suit.

Aquabelle is our revolutionary chlorine resistant swimwear collection available in sizes 8 to 26. Both our Xtra Life Lycra fabric or exclusive Poly/Spandex fabric blend swimsuits are constructed to endure repeated chlorine exposure and will still look brand new, swim after swim! All Aquabelle swimsuits are designed to resist chlorine longer than ordinary swimwear, and they won’t weigh you down in the water. Our sporty-chic one piece suits are created with tummy-control Power Mesh lining to keep your midsection feeling firm and smooth. Lightweight molded wire-free cups shape without sacrificing comfort for a secure fit. Dive in!

Xtra Life Lycra Shirred Swimsuit is rated 3.4375 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this suit, but the sizing was *way* off! Using the sizing chart online, I originally ordered a size 26. WAY too big! I sent it back and ordered a size 20. Perfect! Love the suit; just be aware that the sizing chart is "off." I've encountered this before with Woman Within (a subsidiary), too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from ease of putting it on and taking it off I bought this suit a month ago for therapy pool wear. Great suit except I could have used it in a petite size as the shoulder straps are a bit too loose and occasionally slip down.
Date published: 2015-12-26
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Straps fall Top does not fit properly. Straps are always falling down. Shirring not noticeable. Bought 2 suits. Different styles same size. This one top does not fit properly other top to tight. First time orderinf.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lack of support I got my order promptly, thank you. But when I ordered, I forgot to look for adjustable straps. With my size, I need support, so I returned it. Good suit but not for a big busted woman.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Thinned out to nothing in 3 swims in pool I bought this for my moms water aerobics class. She told me yesterday it has thinned out to sheer nothing in spots after 3 times wearing it. I am very disappointed I have purchased many suits from swimsuits for all and never had a problem, but this one was awful, and certainly not with the money. DON'T BUY if you plan on going in pool or salt water.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Water aerobics suit Nice looking suit, but it runs big. I bought it for water aerobics and am constantly having to adjust the straps and pull it up.
Date published: 2015-08-02
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Top too generous Good suit, but top is too loose...straps keep falling off...have to sew them up. Why don't you provide any with swimmers backs?

can i put this suit in the extracter after a swim?
A shopper on Nov 23, 2014
BEST ANSWER: No, this will damage the fabric fibers.
Is this a long torso suit?
A shopper on Nov 25, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I am long waisted and it was fine but I did not like how low it was cut in the back. I prefer straps that cross in the back.
I need bust support and usually do underwire. Will this suit have enough support for me?
A shopper on Feb 25, 2015
This particular item provides full bust support.
How does this suit stand up to playing in the water and waterskiing?
Lyndsey R on May 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This particular did not hold up as well as the others I have gotten. The straps broke down after a couple of uses. All the other suits I have purchased from here were fine. I do water aerobics several hours per week. This suit did not take care of the job in regards to all the jumping we do.
Size chart?
Kathy E on Aug 23, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Please review link below for your sizing needs.

is an empire band, a medal, plastic or cloth material?

what is an empire band?
A shopper on Jul 22, 2015
BEST ANSWER: An empire band runs just under the bust completely around the body to give excellent support to larger busted women. Most swimwear manufacturers only put a piece of wide elastic across the front of the suit just below the bust (resulting in less than satisfactory holding power) but Aquabelle designs have it all the way around for real support that's comfortable.
How shiny is the fabric? I would prefer it to be matte, but it looks sort of shiny in the picture. thanks.
A shopper on Nov 12, 2015
Due to the fabric blen (82% Nylon / 18% Xtra Life Lycra spandex) it will be slightly shiny, not matte.
Is the suit fully lined?
A shopper on Oct 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It has a thin, lightweight lining
What size do I need if I wear a 3XL?
Cynthia L on Jul 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It depends on the size chart you're using. All 3XLs are not the same. It would be best to look at the size chart for the 3XL you're wearing. It should tell you either the number in inches for bust, waist and hip measurement or the equivalent size range. Then you'll know what size to order on this site. The suit you're looking at does run a little large, so you have a little extra room.
What are your delivery charges?
A shopper on Jan 10, 2016

The delivery charges might vary according to the shipping method selected, also if it is an international or US order, please check further details in the following links:


What is the length of this suit from under the arm to the hem?
A shopper on Sep 3, 2015

It has a side seam measures 16" from Underarm to Hem
Is only in black or are there any colors?
A shopper on Jul 31, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I was only interested in black....didn't notice if it was offered in other colors.
how long is the torso, for what height woman?
Catherine C on Jun 18, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi Catherine!
The length of the torso will depend on the size. Please see our sizing chart next to the 'Shop by Size' category.
Have a great day!
Do these come in bra sizes?
A shopper on Jun 14, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No. Unfortunately, our swimsuits are not sized by bra size.
Most of the measurements indicate I'd be an 18, but I'm a B-cup when it comes to my bust. Will the 18 fit me, or will I be "swimming" in that area?
Stephen T on Apr 20, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hello Stephen!

unfortunately, it will be big in the cup area.
I need a long swimsuit the one I have now is 31 1/2 inches in length.Regular sizes are only 28 inches. I can't get the tall one any more?
gail l on Nov 1, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Our Longitude line of suits are for long torso woman. Please link below for that line of suits.
