  • Created with Aquabelle's exclusive Aquatex nylon fabric made with Extra Life® Lycra®. Aquatex swimsuits last 5-10 times longer in chlorinated environments. Aquatex retains color and shape, and provides high UV protection.
  • Aquaslim power mesh tummy control smooths and flattens while providing core support
  • Scoop neck
  • Engineered color blocking breaks up torso and visually slims waist
  • Aquaform anti-bounce soft molded cup bra with plush empire band provides complete bust support
  • Sizes 18-34 fit up to a D/DD cup
  • Sizes 8-16 fit up to a C/D cup.
  • One piece fits true to size
  • 82% Nylon / 18% Extra Life® Lycra®
  • 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 exclusive chlorine-resistant swimwear collection engineered for high performance at every curve. Sporty yet feminine, the entire range is constructed with our AquaSculpt design fit system—ensuring full tummy and bust support. The anti-bounce Aquaform bra with fast-drying, lightweight cups and plush elastic shapes without sacrificing comfort. Aquaslim power mesh is strategically sewn into all the one-piece suits for a flattering middle. In fact, it’s been proven to cinch the waist by 1 ¾”. The superior quality helped Aquabelle earn the coveted Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval, meaning these durable suits (some made with Xtra Life Lycra) have been third-party tested by the long-trusted authority for colorfastness, fabric abrasion, UV protection, and chlorine resistance. Go ahead, dive in!

Gloria C on Jul 29, 2014
I originally ordered this suit on zulily dot com back in Jan 2014. I just started swimming for exercise (and wearing the suit) in June 2014. I swim 4 days a week and LOVE this suit. It is the best one I have owned. Unfortunately the zipper has broken and I am unable to fix it...after MANY attempts so, I am ordering another one. Hopefully this one with last me a bit longer. :)

Carmen A on Jul 12, 2014
I just joined a gym with aqua classes (lots of jumping up and down). After popping out of my suit yesterday, I'm on this site looking for support (I wear a 36G bra) and solid holding. I'm ordering this in two sizes my norm and one up. Bathing suit reviewers are notorious for wondering why suits are "not true to size" and they need to order "up." I've read a study that says, we just aren't getting real about ourselves. I'm short (5'2") and often have trouble with overly long torso. We'll see.
Dina O on Jul 12, 2014
cute and good price
Kay W on Jul 11, 2014
I need a suit for actually swimming - not just lounging on the beach. I think the zipper adds a nice playful, sexy touch and the white contour lines should add some nice shape.
Helen L on Jul 11, 2014
because I take Aquacise classes in a community salt water pool and I liked it was sturdy enough to withstand the chlorine. Also, I am busty 40 DD and fitted it to a size 18 so it would fit well in the bust.
Brenda S on Jul 11, 2014
needed for lap swimming. Hope it holds up. Chlorine kills my suits
Annette T on Jul 11, 2014
it was cute, a great price and the sizeing on the chart said it should be a perfect fit. I hope its as great in person. Thanks.
Ruth N on Jul 11, 2014

front zipper
holly m on Jun 7, 2014
fits great and the bust is very supportive
deborah m on Jun 6, 2014
I chose this swimsuit because the black/white combo was quite striking. I felt the white piping would accentuate my waistline, and the front zipper could show as little or as much cleavage as I might want. I also like that it came down lower at the back than most of the other swimsuits.
Caroline H on Jun 3, 2014
Style and fit
Deborah H on Jun 3, 2014
style and chlorine resistance
Ursula B on Jun 2, 2014
I chose this suit because the reviews made it seem durable and it fit my needs. I also like the idea of the zipper making it easy to get out of it when it's wet. I plan on doing a lot of swimming this summer, and want something that will last, be comfortable, dry quickly, and be easy to put on and take off frequently.
Amy S on Jun 2, 2014
i like the style
jacklyn a on Jun 2, 2014
Flattering to the figure. I swim for exercise and there is not any extra material and fits well. I also like the look of the suite.
Eurica B on May 30, 2014
doesn't show "ladies"
june c on May 30, 2014
I am a large woman and cannot afford full price items. This color block will accentuate my waist and give an illusion of not being quite as blocky...hopefully anyway.
April B on May 30, 2014
I love the zipper feature. It makes getting in and out of a wet one piece easy!

I had been trying to find something I could use in a chlorine pool. I liked this style. I was disappointed when it also did not hold up. I swim at least 4 times per week and take water classes. I need something that will last.

velvet w on Apr 14, 2014
I used to have a suit similar to this with the white zipper up the front, but the elastic finally gave out. I'm hoping this will be a nice replacement to help keep the eye looking up and down and not wide to wide.

is this long body ?
· Add Your Answer · Votes 0 0 · 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
