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.

Great suit!I swim 5 days per week in a chlorinated pool and I love this swim suit. I bought a second one so I could alternate between the two. The zipper makes it easy to put on and take off, and it stays securely zipped while swimming. This suit is great for a full bust as everything stays secure and in place. It is very comfortable and has held its shape and color, despite the chlorine. It runs small so I went up one size and it fits nicely - comfortable yet secure. Thanks to the other reviews, I was aware of the size discrepancy.

Well crafted garmentThis suit is made well from quality materials. The bra construction is flattering and keeps all secure. Leg openings stay in place--no tugging required. I am about 5'3" and find that the torso of the suit is long for me. However, when I am lap swimming the wet straps stay somewhat in place. So this suit is a keeper because of great quality, good looks, and the fact it performs well while I swim laps. I own another model by Aquabelle that does not feel too long in the torso, so I think the difference may be the placement of the straps. I intend on modifying the straps on this model with a bit of hand sewing.

Va Va Va VoomVa Va Va Voom, I am tall 5'9" 190lbs, large bossom, long waisted so finding the right fit can be a challenge. I swim 4-5 days a week free style or aqua fit or swim fit, love love love this suit. I got so many compliments, the zip front makes it so easy to slip on and off. Im not crazy about my bottom or my hips, this suit does it all, it creates a very flattering silhouette, it covers my bottom and hips and is so comfortable to swim in, this is my forever suit, keep making them! More colors please!

Runs smallI wanted to try the zip front to work around my shoulder problem. This is a really sharp suit but it runs small. I ordered an 18 & could not get the zip closed. Although slightly large, it was much closer to fitting my size 12, B-cup, daughter-in-law. I ordered a different style suit in an 18 & it fits much better. I think if you have the right proportions for the design of this suit you'll love it. It just wasn't made for my body type.
This is my first time shopping Swimsuits for All. The buying experience is great & shipping fast. The site does not do exchanges, rather it's return & rebuy. The products are of good quality but as I had to return my first purchase the jury is still out on the return policy. I'm waiting for my return credit & will update my review & recommendation based on the outcome of the return.

Love this suit!I've had to resort to water exercise to maintain mobility after a serious bout with sciatica and wanted more than one suit as I've been in the pool almost every other day. I'd lost some weight and ordered a size smaller than I usually wear - it fits, but is a tiny bit snug so I believe I does fit true to size and because of the zipper front, is very easy to put on and take off. The support is great and the style very flattering. I'm going to buy another in a different colour!! Hope they don't discontinue this style ... just add more colours!

Ez in and out of suit!!I was so excited to get this suit. Had my eye on it for sometime. I was concerned about whether I would stay in it with doing my water aerobics...would it unzip?? Well let me tell you - you are secure with zipper all the way up or even down a bit. The support is still there. I did have to order one size larger as I am finding with most of the fall line...must be running small?? Getting in and out of this suit is very easy - even when wet. A quick zip and you are out...would be a great suit for anyone who has shoulder problems ;)

Sexy Classy SwimsuitI got this style also in the black & white as well as the red & black. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is, there was about an inch of seaming unsewn on the front of one of the swimsuits. I was able to fix it though fairly easily. Other than that, the fit is great and the design of the striping accentuates your curves. I am full busted and the built-in bra gives great support. I love that the zipper can adjust to however revealing you may want to make it.

Looks good, and fits goodI like this swim suit. I swim at the beach, and do laps in the pool. I always look for a suit that I do not have to pull up, or down especially the straps. This suit stays in place, and is attractive looking. The color block also looks very slimming.
Love Aquabelle suits! I wear suits several times a week for water pilates. Suits fit my curves very well and are extremely supportive and hold their shape well, not to mention how well they hold up with chlorine.
I got this suit in another color and loved it! I do water aerobics and this suit is very flattering and keeps everyone in place :) The quality of the suits I've purchased here is top notch! Thanks so much and keep em coming!
I wear a c-cup; can't fill a d-cup. I am not proportionately built. I need a 22 or 24 to accommodate my bottom. With arthritis in my shoulders, getting a suit on and off is difficult so the zippered front appeals to me. Do you think this would work for me?

Best Answer:I think this suit may work for you. I am larger on bottom also but the top fits snug (for water aerobics and swimming support) The style with the stripes on black is flattering also and gives the look of a waistline, as in the picture. I am a size 12 on top but a 14-16 on bottom. I think I bought a 14. Snug and comfortable fit.
Best Answer:None that I know of. I purchased this bathing suit for water aerobics class. LOVE the fit, especially the bra support. I'm in the water about 3-4 times a week. I purchased this in March 2014. It's now startting to show chlorine damage. Need to order a new one.
