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.

Just what I wantedI wanted a suit that was comfortable to wear as I swim long distances three times a week. I find this suit almost feels like a second skin, with little resistance in the water. It is stylish and covers up my middle aged bod so that I feel less exposed in the pool. I can't think of anything bad to say. I liked it so much I have bought another one in a different colour. I would love even more in this style, don't see why I can't be colourful and covered properly. Thank you swimsuitsforall I wish you had a shop in the UK

Perfect for the PoolI like this suit because I am getting older and want to hide my upper legs when I go to the pool. This is perfect for that. However, there is no re-inforcement in the tummy area and the material is quite thin. I was unsure about my size, so I ordered up (I am in the middle of a Size 22 and a Size 24) and the top fits very well, but the legging part gaps at the knee. One of the cups has a weird fold in it and therefore makes one breast look wonky, but I am hoping that once I wash it, it will work itself out. I just received it today, so that's all I can say for now.

Very Happy so far!I bought a size 14, which is my dress size, and I'm happy with the fit. Most importantly this fits my bust which is 34F. This suit keeps things covered enough so I feel comfortable swimming laps, or with my kids. I haven't had it long enough to speak for how it lasts.

Love this modelI prefer the one piece construction for going in and out of jacuzzi and cold bath at the spa as a tankinis flop around and catch bubbles. I need the legnth since I have lost 50lbs and my thighs are now pretty deflated, lol. This suit offers nice coverage for that, plus my cup size is finally right at this size. On the other hand, I am advocating for a sexier model, at least a bit fancier, something like a vintage crossed front! hint hint Also, hurray for the smooth ordering and delivery!

Too long - wish there were petitesI had to get the 12 because I knew from the length that the 14 would be WAY too long for my shorter frame. The 12 is a bit tight but, even this is too long in the torso..I have to hike it up and deal with wrinkles. Size 14 people are not always tall. I'd love this style if I could get it in a petite 14. I'd recommend this to TALL friends.

Finally a suit for tall gals!I hesitate to purchase one-piece swimsuits because at 5'10" it's hard to get ones that fit without binding either on the shoulders or in the crotch. I was glad to see a size chart which included torso length and took a chance since the chart indicated it would fit, so I took a chance. The aquatard fit perfectly, and has taken 3 minutes off my normal 55-minute workout! It's flattering, comfortable, and just about everything a swimmer could want in a suit. Now if I can only get away with wearing it to the office...

LG, the aquacise coach from
mostly comfortableI teach water aerobics. This suit is perfect, except the armhole area is a bit too tight. The rest of the suit is totally perfect. I just don't like the tightness on the arm/underarm area. I wonder if this would not be the case if I ordered a larger suit, but didn't want to get one too big.
I chose this suit as I am starting to swim regularly for exercise after double knee surgery. I wanted something that would cover my thighs but give me the support I am looking for. I am hoping this suit will be the right fit for me.
I like the look of this suit, however, I am in the water at least four times a week participating in aqua fitness and it only lasted a little over two sessions (which is about sixteen weeks) before I noticed it did not hold up well in the pool. Good fit.
This is absolutely the best swimsuit for working out at the fitness center in the pool. No pulling or tugging. I fits like a glove. I am 71 years old and working out for health benefits and am ordering in the next smaller size so that I will have it when needed. Love everything I have ordered and am telling everyone to shop at this site.
My bust and hip measurements indicate a size 12 or 14 but my waist is bigger than those sizes' recommended measurement. Also my torso is much less than even the size 12's recommendation. Is it better to go bigger to fit my waist or is the suit going to be way too long in the torso?
Best Answer:Hello, a size 18 would work for the bust, hips and torso but we are afraid that the waist might be too tight. If we try to fit the waist it'll be too loose in the bust, hips and torso. We may also suggest to check the separates in order to match all the measurements.
