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.

I chose this suit because the design of the back of the suit looked to be comfortable for swimming laps. I now wear polyester lap suits but they are not quite roomy enough up top so I am hoping that this suit fits the bill.
Is this a mastectomy suit with pockets for prosthesis?
A shopper on Feb 17, 2015
Best Answer:I haven't noticed any pockets for prosthesis in this swim suit, but there is a very nice bra in all the suits. I am very small busted and like the extra padding in the suits. Hope this helps.
I ordered the Aquabelle Xtra Life Lycra Hot Pink Border Cross Back Swimsuit but am returning/exchanging it because it is too long. This suit is also made by Aquabelle. Are they the same length - so I should get a smaller size, or is the Arrowhead "shorter" than the Border suit so I can order my regular size 16?
