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.

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.

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

Middle aged swimmer from
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...

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!

Love this suit!I sized up and this suit was a bit big but the coverage I wanted (upper thigh in particular) was fabulous. It got me right into that pool and on my way to more core strength as I age. I am swimming every other day doing laps. Wearing the suit was a liberating experience. I have since ordered the next TWO sizes down in anticipation of the body improvement. I LOVE THIS SUIT!!!

DisappointingI bought a second suit after the first suit's elasticity fell apart and started sagging. Unfortunately, I realized after delivery that the first suit only lasted 4 months. I hope this one lasts longer because I really like the idea of covering myself while still being able to work out in the pool. I probably will not buy this suit again and certainly will not recommend it.

With a white hat, it's a complete outfitLiving in San Diego with a pool in the backyard, I often "dress" in the morning in a swimsuit and cover-up to go about my morning activities. This cover-up is sufficient to allow me to visit the grocery, garden, collect the mail, etc. while I am always a moment away from a cooling swim. The fabric is quite heavy mesh but it allows it to drape nicely for a flattering fit.

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.
I do water aerobics 4 or 5 times a week and this suit lasts a really long time. Neckline is great, everything stays covered with all the bouncing and the water motion. When I climb out of the pool, no worries with the long legs. Everyone always ask where I get my suits because they love them.
I have checked several stores for an plus size - aquatard and could not find one. I then checked online to several websites. This was the only website, I could find, which provided the: size, style, chlorine-friendly, and at a reasonable price. I will definetly shop here and mention this site to my friends and family.
I was very pleased with my recent Aquabelle one-piece purchase. It offers great coverage and support. Also, I wanted a second swimsuit option since I attend Aquacize twice a week. The aquatard stood out as a great option for water aerobics.
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?
