  • This is a swimsuit bottom and does not include a top for a full set.  Shop separate tops to make a complete set.
  • 82% Nylon / 18% Spandex
  • Hits mid-thigh
  • Front poly/mesh lining
  • Provides full coverage
  • 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.

want a more covered bottom for a top I already own
M E on Aug 21, 2014
Regular swimsuit bottoms do not fit properly around the legs. The the leg openings are to large allowing the bottoms to gap causing possible embarrassing exposure! Could not find any in the store that were not bikini and they roll down at the top on me. These are exactly what I have been looking for.

L T on Jul 14, 2014
I wanted a 'kini style suit, but most shorts have very wide leg openings and I wanted a closer fit in the leg. Hopefully these shorts are like that. The skirts often rise in the water or cling when you get out. A close-fitting short should stay put.
