Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Style I bought this for lap swimming. I was looking for a basic swim suit that would survive 3x a week in a clorinated pool. I wash it in Woollite after each swim. I want it to last. So far all is well. I've had it for about a month and the only issue I have is the straps often slide off my shoulders. As a large breasted woman, it fits fine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Classic I chose this suit because it will work for a variety of situations- lap swim, water aerobics, and playing at the water park with kids. This suit has great coverage and is very comfortable. That being said, I am tall, large busted and hourglass shape and wear a 24 pant/26 top so decided to try a 26. I am happy with the way the lower part of the suit fits, but the bust area is not as snug as I would like. I am afraid if I go down a size the tummy/bum will be too tight, so I'm keeping it anyway. If you are large busted (DD+) this is a good suit, you may just want to buy what your pant size is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Find! Great Fit! At 5-11" and got a size 10, it fits and feels great. A little tight under arms, but not bad. Love the material and color, and fits great when wet......not saggy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No Xtra Life Here This suit looks great but unfortunately the chlorine will disintegrate the fabric very quickly. After only wearing a few times it started loosening up and I noticed that the elastic was wearing badly. Don't waste your time!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from In 5 months it was faded and stretched out I bought this for exercise in a pool Aquabelle states that it is chlorine resistant. I'd hate to see this suit if it wasn't. It was fading within 4 months and by 5 months it had started to stretch as well. Now it is grey, the material hangs loosely and for some reason the rear of it is pilled as if I was sitting on sand when the fact it I have never sat down in this suit. My last suit lasted 20 years. I guess they don't make them like they used to.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality I bought this and another suit about a month ago. The quality of this suit was good but the fit wasn't quite right. I kept the other suit and am happy with it.

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.
Is it for long torso?
Judy s on Sep 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This style is not specifically designed for a long torso, however, our swimsuits do feature 2-way stretch and our torso measurements are similar to Longitude-brand suits. Please call or e-mail swimstylist@swimsuitsforall.com for assistance. If you send your exact measurements, our team will be happy to find the best fit for you!

Is only in black or are there any colors?

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.
