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.

Fits like a dreamThis is a gorgeous suit with only one flaw. The strap/neck hook closure tends to be tight almost pushing down on your neck. However all the pros outweigh that one con. Thanks s4a!

Love it!I ordered this swimsuit in a plus size 22 and it is awesome love the color and design. I had been watching for it to go on sale since it was first posted on the site a few months ago. The suit is a great value, fits great and is very flattering to a plus size figure! I would recommend this suit to my friends 100%! This is my 5th swimsuit I have bought off of the site and I have my eye on a few more! I live in Florida 6months out of the year so it is important to me that my suits be very wearable and keep their color and shape. So if your looking for a great swimsuit look no further......and so far I have not found anything that hasn't been great about the swimsuit.....it has so far withstood daily wearing at the beach, pool and just working out in the yard catching a few rays.........

Not for meI ordered a size 12 and size 14. For me the 14 was too loose so that one I disregarded. 12 fit but awkwardly. There is no support in the midsection so it did suck me in & made me look sqaure. There is not much support in the breast area. And any type of built in cups fell below my bust. I feel the suit was too short. I am 5" 4 1/2" & 150 lbs size 10 jeans or M pant. I own the solid black sarong front suit by Beachbell in a size 14 and it is my favorite suit so far..i have lost a few lbs since getting that one and could prob go down to a 12.

Loved This!I am a very busty women- 38 HH to be exact. I am also a size 16. I am not really comfortable in my body as I am the heaviest I have ever been. I have a hard time getting anything that fits my chest, but isn't baggy too. I had to wear a swim bra with this, but I always have to with any bathing suit. It fit perfect and my husband even told me he liked it. He is a man of little words. WINNER!

I really wanted to love this oneI really wanted to love this bathing suit. I loved it in the picture and when I took it out of the bag, but on me it looked and felt awkward. I am somewhat hippy and the sarong front didn't lay right on my hips. The bra portion was not supportive at all and the straps going down the back are too long. It might be a great suit for you if you are not as hippy or large-chested.

Perfect swimsuit!Beautiful swimsuit! I'd perhaps reinforce the bust with a tighter bra, but overall it fits really well, as it enhances the best parts of an XL body and conceals right what it has to! It has made me feel like going to the beach after so many years hiding from the sun because of overweight! Ordered it from Spain and arrived 3 weeks later, right on time! Excellent buy! :)

Love the styleI love everything about this suit except the back closure. It was very difficult because the material was too thick. After trying to fix it I finally had to bring to a seamstress and she changed the closure. I do water exercises and had to have one of my friends close it.She found it very difficult also. I liked the suit very much and it is very comfortable.

A great suitI have received more compliments on how flattering and good-looking this suit is than any other time in years. As a size 24 that doesn't happen all that often. The design is terrrific and the structure inside really does it's job. I liked it so much I bought another in a different print.
I like the sarong front suits. There are only 2 chlorine resistant patterns to choose from. Hopefully in future there will be more to choose from. These suits really hold up well in the pool; there has been no fade at all on the "Marina", so I am comfortable purchasing the "Poppies" too.
Long Torso & clorine resistant. I just received the same suit in the next size down but the leg holes are too tight & the shoulder straps are too tight. It is flattering but for water aerobics would be too restricting. Im hoping the next size up will work better.
I have this style swimsuit in a different fabric and I just LOVE it! it is flattering and I love the neck strap clip in the back to keep the straps in place. it is not irritating like a halter top on the back of your neck. This lies a little lower on your actual back, not neck.
It's a really cute print; trendy, not grandma. The halter straps tend to make my DD look put together and nice instead of droopy. The sarong skirt makes me more comfortable walking around the pool in my suit
Black is flattering, with a pop of color! Love the sweetheart neckline and added straps to the typical halter on the back! I am busty and normal halters give me a headache so hopefully this won't be so heavy on my neck with the back straps pulling it down. I'm so excited! Hope it fits ok!
Best Answer:I can't put a time limit on the suit as I use several, but the Aquabelle line of suits do last a lot longer in chlorine than the other brands. I do water aerobics in a salt water pool (which you know has less chlorine than a regular chlorine pool) but other brands still become "see through" very quickly. My Aquabelle suits do not. They hold up beautifully!
