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.

Perfect for the misproportioned!I walk my fingers to the hook, but someone with shoulder problems won't be able to. I am not crazy about the colors but the effect was perfect for detracting from my imperfections. I am 55 and needed a DD-DDD bust, long waist, conservative coverage, with a proportional waist but extra mid section due to MANY C-sections and a smaller hip. I needed 3 sizes. I chose the middle and was perfectly satisfied. I swim 5K/3x wkly in bromide water pool. I rinse the suit well when I shower, drip dry, and wear again. It still looks brand new after 3 hard months. I plan to buy my next suit in just a few more lost inches.

Fantastic!!I used this product for swimming and relaxing poolside. I could not have been more pleased. I didn't have to worry about tugging or drooping in areas I had concerns about. AND I had fun. It looked great and so did I in it! It kept it's shape after hand washing too. What a great purchase and it didn't hurt that I got it on sale either! I wasn't shy about telling other guests (when they asked) where I made this purchase and how easy it was. Thank you for making me realize that plus size swimwear doesn't have to be drab and boring.

Petites Must Size DownBeautiful swimsuit. Sadly most sizes available are only proportional for taller or average women. Petites at 5 ft , even with size D5 Bra sizes , must size down ( 2 to 3 below the size guide). Even so, the fit won't be perfect in the Torso, however the design and fabric are of good quality. I like the suit very much, but I would not recommend it for large breasted petite females. I'm overweight, size D5 bra, and purchased the AquaBelle size 10 and 12. Both too big overall, but I'm wearing a Rash Guard over it.

Size up!This suit is very cute; however, I ordered my normal size 18 and although the fit guide inches are accurate for 18 this suit was so tight I could not hook the top around my neck and although I got it on it was not flattering. Looks like a perfect suit for water exercise and swimming but I'll have to exchange at least 1 size up, maybe two. Although I appreciated getting a free bronzer the tube came out of it's bag and opened up as did another suit I ordered so bronzer was all over one of the suits in my order (the one that fit)!

Just what I wantedHaving recently had a lumpectomy with removal of lymph nodes and installation of chemo port :( I was looking for a suit that would enable me to continue my water aerobics class without drawing stares. I ordered this suit with fingers crossed and am happy to report that it is exactly what I was hoping for--stylish and comfortable while covering the parts of my chest that I'd just as soon people not see. I also like that the leg openings are modest--hard to find in the current marketplace. I'm very happy with this purchase.

Mixed EmotionsI ordered a Delta Burke and an Aquabelle. The Delta Burke fit perfectly but I was worried that it wasn't supportive enough for water exercise. The Aquabelle seemed too small. I re-ordered it in a larger size. It fit - but at that point I realized that the problem is that it's too short. Everything is pulling down so despite it being the style and quality that I want, I'll need to send it back. Wish it were cut a bit longer. If a friend was SHORTER with a shorter torso than me, I'd recommend it!

nice suit, butI bought this suit and a longitude suit - similar in style. The hook is nearly impossible to do, but I have figured out how to hook it first, then put my head thru the opening. I got a 16 based on my hip measurements and it fits good there, but is large in the bust. Also, the elastic in the back part of the legs seems a bit loose. It tends to try to ride up over my butt cheeks - I don't have that problem with the other suit. It could become a problem if it stretches out. I use the suit to do water exercises at the pool and have worn it twice now. It fits good with the noted exceptions. I keep wondering if I could wear a 14 - I think it might fit better in the bust, but not sure if it would be too tight in the hip area. Overall, it's a nice suit - lovely colors - and good value for the price.

Swim mom approved!I received my suit today (5/21/14) two days early. Within about an hour if receiving it I had it on and was swimming in it not long after that. As a swim mom and team board member I am well aware of how suits should fit for lap swimming. They should be a little snug as suits stretch and bag as they get wet and age. After reading the reviews about being too short I opted to go a size larger. I am glad I did. I swim laps as cross training as training for my running races. Even at my most fit I'm a bit busty and "statuesque" which means I battle with suit just not fitting right. I've struggled to find a suit that was flattering, age appropriate (I'm 40, not looking to show off but not looking to wear a dress either) and was good for an hour plus of lap swimming 3-4 days a week. This is the suit!
I chose this swimsuit to do some lap swimming. It's a great fit and holds up to the chlorine. I chose it because of the straps. When I swim in other swimsuits that don't connect in the back, my straps always fall down. So this swimsuit worked perfect, no straps falling down.
I have had my suit now for a while, however I haven't worn it more than about a dozen times. After each time I wear it I follow the instructions on care for it, I noticed today after being at aquafit that it is worn on the back - I love my suit but didn't think it would wear out that quickly. what is he guarantee on this item?
Would this be flattering on a large chested woman? Light colours make things look bigger and dark colours make things look smaller right? I don't know if this would be the right design for me, what do you think?
Best Answer:Please compare your bust measurement to the size chart on the item of inquiry. The cup size on the sizing chart is subject to the universal sizing. Please disregard the cup size and compare according to the bust.
