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.

The shape of this swim dress is flattering to my body type. I also default to black in my wardrobe, but the mint border added a flattering detail. This the first time I've ordered from this website, so I look forward to seeing my product!
Best Answer:I haven't tried out this particular swim dress, yet. However, I have good luck with other Aquabelle suits. I usually have two. One is used for swim exercise/therapy. I have severe arthritis in both hips and exercise in water one time each week. This water workout includes use of a hot tub afterward, which I understand really hastens the life of swim attire. That being said, a suit will last about 8 months, though I will squeeze a year out of it. Then, I start using the second suit, which, in the mean time had been used for casual swimming at a public pool or beach. At that time, I purchase another suit for casual swimming and begin the process again. Though an Aquabelle suit can be expensive, it is well made and looks nice. People have given me compliments and that is a boost to my self esteem. I believe that the Aquabelle suit lives up to being chlorine resistant. Plus, this site has good sales. I hope that this information helps and good luck with your search.
