  • This is a swimsuit bottom and does not include a top for a full set.  Shop separate tops to make a complete set.
  • Created with Aquabelle's exclusive Xtra Life® Lycra® nylon fabric: swimsuits last 5-10 times longer in chlorinated environments, quick drying, comfortably resists fading, retain its shape and provides UV protection.
  • 5" inseam
  • Bike short swim bottom fits true to size
  • 82% Nylon / 18% Xtra 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.

Xtra Life Lycra Bike Short is rated 3.8889 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from These shorts are the best! I don't know why these shorts received such poor reviews.I absolutely love them and have been buying them for years. The only thing wrong with these shorts is that they seriously are made too small so you just have to buy them in a larger size. I wear size ten in jeans and I bought these in a size 14 which fit but I just ordered them in a size 16 and they are even better. So go ahead and order them, just get them two or three sizes larger than what you need.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Runs small! I bought these to help cover my thighs a little, since swim shorts are typically a little too short. I wear size 18 normally, but bought a size 22 since I'm a bit heavier in my thighs. Still too small.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great stretch, great coverage. When I first pulled these out of the package, I thought "there is no way that is going to fit!" They looked like a size 12, not a 22. But, there is amazing stretch to this high-quality fabric. These bike shorts help firm up and camoflage my flabby thighs. They are really cute with the A-line top I bought. I bought these for hot tubbing, and casual swimming, so I don't know how they would be for water aerobics or more strenuous swimming.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Will use & buy again Ordered two sizes up after receiving one that was one size up. Good price. Haven't worn long, but down side is I wish the material was heavier/not as thin.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too small I got these in the mail and tried them on, they were way to small even though I ordered my size by there size chart. They were also very thin.

When I'm in the water, wearing these bottoms, nothing "floats up", the way the 'skirts' do. Very comfortable to wear when working outside too!
Lori W on May 23, 2015
I prefer wearing the two piece suits and the shorts are the most comfortable. These will be new to me but they appear well made and should fit well.
Rosa G on May 22, 2015
I like how compression/biker shorts fit and they can be difficult to find at the stores in my area.

is the bike short fully lined?
Cheri T on Sep 27, 2014
Best Answer: No, in fact it is rather thin. I use it at least once a week in a chlorinated pool. So far so good. I've had it for about two months. We shall see how long it lasts. But if you're expecting a lining, it's not there.

Do I have to wear an additional bathing suit bottom under these or are these definitely not sheer even when wet so no one will get a 'show?'
