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.

bought this last season and it did not hold up to pool use for long. The entire back material was thin and see through after a very short period of time. Very disappointed. Hope the two suits I just ordered will be of higher quality.
I wanted to see how well the chlorine resistant suits stood up. So far - so good. It does fit differently so I had to lose a bit more weight before I could fit into it, but it was worth losing the extra few pounds.
I have another Aquabelle swimsuit and it's WONDERFUL!!! I've lost some weight now with water aerobics, so I need a smaller size. I'll only consider Aquabelle because I know it will keep it's wonderful shape and it holds up to any chlorinated pool 2 to 3 times per week.
Hoped to use for AquaFit - great with cross back so straps don't fall off my narrow shoulders - downside was I ordered 1 size too big, so will return and try another option - maybe just too long in the torso for me.
I prefer cross back style for lap swimming and water aerobics. I purchased another Aquabelle in June and love the fit. Especially the 'tummy control' panel. I purchased two more suits because of the sale and I'm now in the pool five days a week for laps and twice a week for water aerobics.
I chose this suit because it was plain and simple in the front with a single contrasting color for a slimming look. It also had a crisscross back for stability. I do not like the flowered suits, nor suits with skirts. I also do not like the suits that connect at the top.
I work with kids and I like that it has secure straps that go across the back. It is all too easy for straps to be pulled when swimming with children and if they just go over the shoulder I have felt insecure and nervous about something popping out.
hopefully because it is chlorine-water resistant for aqua sizing, although the other suit I ordered from you did not even last 1 year!. I swim twice a week in a swimming pool for fitness. We will see how this one stands up, otherwise it will be my last one.......
"I swim 5-7 mornings a week. The fit and style are good for both lap swimming and water aerobics. I am disappointed in how quickly the color fades and the elastic breaks down from chlorine, but it is somewhat better than others I have found to date. I sam just resigned to buying a new suit every couple of months..."
Had a similar one which was a good fit. I had back surgery a few months ago and I swim five times a week. Need the exercise to keep weight down and strenghten my back. It lasted for a reasonable amount of time and was good value for money
I choose this suit because it has the crossed back. I work on a lake waterfront and need the support of the crossed back and it also does not fall of my shoulders while I am working and teaching. I am a women of mature years and also need the support of bra in a suit. My only wish is that someone someday will may a Life Guard suit for the mature women.
My daughter, who is 14, has very large busts. She was needing a one pc suit that would hold her in for a youth trip. Hope it works. It is very difficult to get a suit to fit a girl her age w/ a bust size of a D cup.
I am 152-155 lbs, 5'3", bra 38 C ,& have a torn right rotator cuff. I participate in advanced water aerobics 2-3 times a week all year round. I wear a size 12 swimsuit but after reading the reviews that it 'runs small' is 'to hard to pull on' or 'too tight in the bust', & one mentioning 'a torn rotator cuff individual who could not pull it on'... Should I order the size 14?
Best Answer:A size 12 would likely work best for you, I wouldn't recommend sizing up. But due to the fact that you've got limited mobility when it comes to slipping a swimsuit over your head, I'd recommend one of our Zip Front Aquabelle 1-piece swimsuits! You can simply step into the suit & zip it up. Check out styles: 2740, 2745, 3418 & 3417.
Can I request the sizing of the 'plush empire band' ? I ordered a size 18 in a different Aquabelle suit and it fit and looked beautifully except one part. The empire band was only a 28inch circumference. It only stretched one more inch. I was so disappointed.
