  • 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
  • Functional, sporty nylon zipper
  • Side seam measures 16" from Underarm to Hem
  • Sizes 8-16 fit up to a C/D cup; sizes 18-34 fit up to a D/DD cup
  • One-piece swimsuit fits true to size
  • 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.

Xtra Life Lycra Zip Front Swimsuit is rated 4.3684 out of 5 by 38.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Zipper broke! I was cautious about ordering a suit with a zipper, but tried it anyway. It looks good on my apple shape. I wore this suit a few times to the pool with my kids, and it worked fine until the last time I wore it. The top didn't start unzipping like If figured it might if it malfunctioned -- it started unzipping at the bottom! Not something you want to have happen when you're in a pool full of people. Talk about embarrassing!! I managed to get my shirt on to cover it and get to the bath house to fix it. I was able to fix it like any self-repairing zipper, but it never should have come undone in the first place. I have no confidence in this swimsuit any more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from FRUSTRATED with sizing! I am a stylish 59 yr.old who does water aerobics 5 to 6 times a week. My frustration with ALL the one peice suits on this site is the same; SIZING. I am large busted (34G). According to the size chart to fit DD cups, I should be ordering at least size 18!!! I have tried size 16 and it was way too big. Pardon the pun, but I would be swimming in size 18. Size 12 fits perfectly except for the bust. Size 14 fits better in the bust but the torso is too long! UGHHHH. I have tried all styles and the result is the same.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Aqua-robics This is my 2nd Aquabelle suit and I couldn't be happier with the brand. My first suit lasted almost 2 years with weekly machine washing. What I like about this suit, as a busty gal, is the high neck, keeps everything in place during the bouncy parts of class. The zip front is nice, makes in and out easy peasy. My last suit had a back latch closure, not bad, but if you have any shoulder trouble, or are just uncoordinated, you might like this better. And the design is very flattering. I find it runs true to size. And they do indeed hold up very well to the chlorine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy with my purchase! I love this suit. It actually seems to flatter my large round/apple shaped body. I usually wear 20 or 22. I bought the 22 and I'm glad I did. Fits snug, but I love it. Do be careful with the zipper. It didnt give me any problems, but it would hurt if you get your skin into it. I've only washed it once, but it seems to be made well. Another reviewer mentioned that the zipper broke because she was using only one hand to zip it; I don't know, seems to be good quality stitching. Doesn't seem like a flimsy or cheap zipper. I will purchase this item again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Loved this, but..... I loved this suit, I bought the red one also, problem is I go swimming everyday and it wore out about after a month. It lost it's structure and faded. If only worn once in awhile it is great. I would recommend for casual swimming not daily.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice suit BUT I bought the suit for Aqua Aerobics and love it except the white stripe wore out after a few uses. The rest of the suit is good. The fit is good - particularly in the bust area - really holds you in.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesomely Hot - But Falls Apart Fast I bought two of theses because the suit is so sexy, but each one fell apart in four weeks of swimming laps. Sad. I would recommend the suit for people who are not actually going to swim in it. lol.
Date published: 2014-10-29
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sizing was not correct I followed the sizing directions exactly. I could barely zip it over my chest. I really want this suit, but I am afraid that I'll have to size up at least two sizes.

Because of zipper in the front. Maybe easier to put on.
Mireille S on Nov 21, 2015
Straps fall off easily.... if you are going to purchase a swimsuit for doing laps then get one that fastens at the top of the back.

Looks like it will offer a lot of upper support.
Debra M on Nov 4, 2015
I needed a swimsuit that I could use for activities but I also wanted to look cute. This got great reviews and the easy in-out with the zipper really caught my attention.
Kendall M on Oct 30, 2015
I liked. It and I still wear it.
I had much bigger sizes foe it to fit the top, I'm going to have to take in. The bottoms to make it fit.
A L on Oct 29, 2015
Nice and very attractive one. The only problem with the suit is the zipper. It's plastic and the prongs (I guess that is what you would call it) breaks after a couple wears. If that could be fixed this suit would be perfect.
Tina S on Oct 26, 2015
Looks like it is easy to get on and off. I chose this suit for lap swimming (so athletic purposes). It should be great gym gear.
Julie E on Oct 26, 2015

Linda R on Oct 13, 2015
I had another one it lasted so long. It fit so well. I love this suit.
Addena S on Oct 9, 2015
I choose this one because the white zipper makes it look slimming. I swim laps and I'm excited to have the zipper make it easier for putting it on/off. I'm taking it surfing with me in a few weeks so I hope it will be a good atheltic suit for that.

I like how this suit looks. I'm big busted so it's tight across the bust, but definitely holds me in. Tightness does not effect my swimming or hot tub time.
Karla G on Sep 25, 2015
Good fit. Good value.
Mary J. R on Sep 24, 2015

The Xtra Life Lycra Aquabelle Swimsuit seems to be more chlorine resistant than some other bathers and their are a variety of style options and colours which can be hard to source elsewhere.

lynda d on Aug 25, 2015
I have big hips and I like the way the white lines go in at the waist.
Martha G on Aug 24, 2015
This appeared to me to be flattering yet great for "sporty" swimming. I have started actively swimming as part of my workout and am finding the 2 piece tankini types suits are not great for a more aggressive swimming workout.
Karin V on Aug 16, 2015
Can't resist a zipper!
Barbara B on Aug 15, 2015
I like spliced suits...can be slimming.

is this long body ?
A shopper on Jul 22, 2014
BEST ANSWER: It is! Which is great because every suit I've gotten from SSFA are short torso and never fit me. It also helps to wash and dry them in the machines once to stretch them out
is this an underwire bra?
A shopper on Jun 5, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It's not an underwire but it is a very snug and secure fit with plenty of support and I'm a size 22.
Is it an actual working zipper, on just ornamentation?
A shopper on Jun 23, 2015
BEST ANSWER: it is a actual working zipper
Where r u? Online only?
A shopper on Jul 24, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Sexy suit but not available in smaller cup sizes. :(
sizing: for style 2740: bust 47, waist 45, hips 53 and torso 68: what size do you recommend? Also, the magazine received in the mail said this was $33.60, but website says it is more. What is the cost? Also, reviews said the suit falls apart. I will be swimming everyday. Is this suit durable?
Gail H on May 23, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hello Gail,

A size 22 might work for you. In regards to the item, since it has a lycra blend it's very resistant and it is chlorine resistant. However it's very important to follow the care tips to help it last.
