  • This is a swimsuit bottom and does not include a top for a full set.  Shop separate tops to make a complete set.
  • Elastic waist
  • Loose fitting, full leg short
  • Full mesh panty
  • 82% Nylon / 18% Spandex
  • Hits mid-thigh
  • 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.

Our iconic Beach Belle swimsuits are all about classic style, smart coverage and ideal comfort. Whether you’re looking for traditional floral or attention-getting prints, the collection includes contemporary designs and colors that works regardless of shape and body type. Available in skirtinis, shortinis, swimdresses, sarong-front suits and side-tie tankinis—Beach Belle swimwear flatters all figures and is guaranteed to be a forever favorite.

Are these shorts stretchy? I bought the board shorts and didn't like them.
· Add Your Answer · Votes 0 0 · A D on Jul 31, 2014
Best Answer · Almost too stretchy. I purchased a size I thought would fit but they were too tight across the belly. I returned them for the next size up but when I got in the water with them they almost came off. Get the size you would normally wear, they may seem too small but won't fall off.
