  • This style is a tankini top and does not include a bottom for a full set. Shop separate bottoms to make a set.
  • Created with Aquabelle's exclusive Aquapreen polyester spandex blend. Aquapreen fabric is chlorine resistant, retains color and shape, and provides high UV protection.
  • Scoop neck
  • Print breaks up torso and visually slims waist
  • Racerback lends additional bust support while allowing for full range of motion
  • Soft molded cup bra with encircled plush empire band provides full bust support
  • Sizes 18-34 fit up to a D/DD cup
  • Sizes 8-16 fit up to a C/D cup.
  • Tankini top fits true to size
  • 82% Polyester / 18% 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.

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.

chlorine resistant for swimming
P T on Aug 22, 2014
I need a chlorine resistant top that covers and fits well. I like this style to wear with my skirt. I hope this one works! I am hard to fit being 5'2" and large busted.
Tammy V on Aug 21, 2014
Amazing support! Think of this as the best swimsuit bra EVER made that you'll look amazing in everyday-order up a size though. Already purchased one and had to come back for another color!
Dominique S on Aug 21, 2014
I always have trouble with the straps falling and I think that this style will solve that problem.
Mary C on Aug 18, 2014
The high neckline will help me cover a large bust. The snug bottom will look smart and slimming.
Charlotte E on Aug 18, 2014
I chose this swimsuit top because I think the print will be flattering on me and I like the colors but mostly because it has a recerback which will keep the straps from slipping off my shoulders while swimming.
Janice S on Aug 15, 2014

Beverly H on Aug 13, 2014

I chose this suit because I am large busted and continually have problems finding a top that fits and supports. I am hoping this suit will be what I am looking for. I will repost if this meets my expectations.

Need chlorine resist
Karena S on Jul 3, 2014
This is the second racerback I ordered, and since the first one was comfortable for water aerobics, I wanted to have a second one. Fit is great, stylish, and comfortable!!
Marion M on Jul 2, 2014
Because I like to wear tankini's they are very comfortable and work well when I'm in my water aerobics class
Christa S on Jul 1, 2014
Trying for the first time. Reviews were positive for coverage and control. I hope the fit is right.

The bike shorts were a good length and i like the racer back. I love the bright colors.
Andrea C on Jun 27, 2014
I love the bright color & hope with the racer back, the bra part will be better support. When I weighed a lot less, I use to swim laps regularly with a sport like racer back suit.
Catherine S on Jun 24, 2014

razor back coverage
Laura H on Jun 11, 2014
I like to wear racerback tankinis to also hike on hot mornings in Colorado. The racerback style adds a little extra support while walking without having to wear a sports bra also.
Sherry C on Jun 11, 2014
chlorine resistant; good coverage of back and neckline; longer length; bright summery colors
Barbara K R on Jun 11, 2014
I have another top in this style and it's very comfortable. Needed another one for this year's 2 week vacation!
Andrea R on Jun 10, 2014
Bust Support. I am normal everywhere except my bust. It is hard to find swimsuits that don't look indecent on me. I do not like showing tons of cleavage!
Rosemary F on Jun 9, 2014
nice fit
Nancy A on Jun 5, 2014
I use separates for snorkeling here in South Florida. The racer back is practical for free arm movement and the top is not too loose (no ride up). I have the same top in black and although it is a snug fit it works great for active swimming.
Mary R on Jun 4, 2014
To wear in my water aerobics class
Theresa M on Jun 3, 2014
Sporty, colorful, and looks promising to slim and support without squashing :)
Lilly P on Jun 3, 2014

Cholrine resistant and it fits good
Suzanne G on May 13, 2014
Need bust support for aqua aerobics. Reading the review helped me to pick. I wanted black but my size was not available. I do love the colors in the photo but sometimes it's not the same when it arrives. I'm really hoping not to be disappointed.
Monique V on May 6, 2014
Racer back straps and modest neck line.

Does the top stay in place when you do water aerobics?

Best Answer · I wear a racer back black nylon t shirt under mine to ensure I am covered while swimming laps or doing water aerobics bc I can tuck the t shirt into my bottoms.
