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.

Bought three and am buying moreI bought three because of the price and my travel plans. I will be ordering more. I have a shoulder injury that precluded wearing a regular bra. These give me a bra,, comfort, colour and can be worn with regular street clothes. Definitely slimming too I am a big woman with big shoulders. I feel good in these. Ordering more.

Blouson ComfortI believe this is one of the most comfortable bathing suits I've had in many years. The only slight drawback is that the shoulders feel loose. I plan on solving this with a few stitches. I'm sure, after that, things should be fine.

cute topThe straps were too long and so the top offered no bust support. After an expensive alteration the fit should be fine. The rest of the suit fit well so sizing down would not have helped. Other than the strap problem, which is a huge deal if you have a big bust, the suit seems to be well made, and offers sufficient cup size rather than a shelf bra.I don't know whether to recommend it or not.

Attractive and Sophisticated!Recently I bought the "blouson" style tankini top to see if this was a good style for me. Happily it is, so I bought several in different colors. I'm pairing that with a cute pair of swim shorts I also purchased, and am excited to start wearing my stylish swimsuits. Looking forward to having different looks each time! This style is not too form fitting and is not too low cut which is just perfect for me.

No Support.I was so excited to find this style of bathing suit top, but was sorely disappointed upon trying it on. Had I not been in such a bind, needing a suit badly, I'd have crammed it back in the bag to send back in. There is absolutely NO support for your bust. I'm 5'11, and pretty much rectangle shaped, with a D cup size. I ordered the 3X, because I usually wear a 22/24 in clothing. I don't know who in the world the straps were designed for. I have a longer torso/chest area than anyone I know, and the straps could still be taken up a good two inches. You'd think that would be reason enough for the material not to ride up the bust area (you know, with there being plenty of length), yet it did. So, I had straps sliding off my shoulders, sagging breasts, and the chest/stomach area's material riding up and causing all sorts of awkward pulling and adjusting ALL DAY. If I wasn't already so self conscious, I'd post a picture with this review. The term, "hot mess", doesn't even begin to describe how I looked, and felt. The price, and fast shipping were on par, so that's a plus.
I chose this top because I was so pleased with my previous order. Hope to order lots more...Colors are beautiful, and these tops are excellent for covering that little bit of bulge in the "tummy" area! Love these tops!
Best Answer:As far as I know, this is a swim top. All the Beach Belle Blouson Tankini Tops are. I bought several of these tops because I like the side tie, they come in some lovely colours and patterns and have a good amount of material across the tummy (my big problem area). I wear them as blouses as they are feminine and comfortable. The only minus is the bra isn't very supportive, so I wear a bra underneath.
