  • Created with Aquabelle's exclusive Aquatex nylon fabric made with Extra Life® Lycra®. Aquatex swimsuits last 5-10 times longer in chlorinated environments. Aquatex retains color and shape, and provides high UV protection.
  • Aquaslim power mesh tummy control smooths and flattens while providing core support
  • Squared neckline provides moderate coverage.
  • Empire waist breaks up torso and visually slims waist
  • Engineered print breaks up torso and visually slims waist
  • High back lends additional bust support and coverage
  • 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.
  • One piece fits true to size
  • 82% Nylon / 18% Extra Life® Lycra®
  • 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.

Nathalee B on Aug 7, 2014
I am a senior citizen and I feel that at my age you should cover up a little more. I had purchased this exact suit in blue and love it. So very comfortable. I also ordered this one in a smaller size as I am loosing weight and do not want to miss the opportunity to get this suit. I have told many people about this site the products are excellent quality.

I like the fit and functionality of this suit and have purchased more than one. The style is also great.
DEIRDRE B on May 30, 2014
Need a modest swim suit that I can "train" in. Swimdresses are fine for the beach or casual poolside vacation, but I've joined a gym and need something that won't hinder my exercise laps.
Christina G on May 30, 2014
long shorts

Swimsuit is beautiful, great coverage and chlorine resistant; purchased the second one for a friend because I love this swimsuit and she is a very modest person and she likes the way it looks
G L on May 24, 2014
I thought I would be more comfortable covered up but didn't care for the way I looked in it. I tried it on but never wore it for Aqua.
CHRISTINA M on May 24, 2014
I thought this look was modest and also better to aqua jog in than a regular suit.
Judy P on May 21, 2014

Star T on May 20, 2014
like the full coverage suit
ROSENELL B on May 19, 2014
The full coverage will give me the confidence I need to be able to start swimming regularly. We just joined the YMCA and I want to get back into shape. This swimsuit is cute and covers all areas I want covered while still being designed for swimming for exercise, not just cooling off in the water.
Hannah C on May 15, 2014
Looks like it will be confortable.
Deon N on May 14, 2014
I like the way it looks. Aquabella products purchased previously have been great products.
Alma L on May 8, 2014
I really love this! I wear it to yoga then afterwards straight to the co-ed jaquzzi at my gym! I would buy more when you get any!
Kena S on May 7, 2014
I liked the longer legs, it fits great once it is on, but I have trouble pulling the area of the seam from one fabric to the other over my tummy.
Betty Jean N on May 6, 2014
It has built in pants so I did not have to pay for those, plus modest suites are hard to come by so that is a huge bonus!!!
Krista G on May 5, 2014
I was looking for coverage for my large thighs without looking baggy
Alynne S on May 3, 2014
