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.

I chose this suit because the Sarong Front is so different from anything I have and because the straps looked as if they would work for swimming laps. I am an older lady, and apple-shaped. This suit looks beautiful from the front. I have a tummy from the side view -- but there is only so much a swimming suit can do.... I need to do the rest now with my swimming! Very nice suit.
I am old and overweight but find that skirted suits are a nuisance when exercising in pool. Am hoping this style will help conceal some of the bits I find most unappealing(drooping stomach) and yet be sleek enough to not float up in my face when I'm actively moving. Ordered suit in size I wear in slacks. Too big. Am re-ordering 2 sizes smaller. will update when it arrives
I already have this one which fits well. I had to shorten the sarong front by about 1 inch. I wore it to water aerobics today for the first time, so will see how long it will last in the chlorine water - usually I get about six months use from non-chloride resistant suits.
This one is for my sister, as a birthday present. She always wears black tanks with shorts, but I thought she might like this one piece because it has more coverage with the long skirt and higher neck.
In reading the reviews, I noticed all were positive, but the comment that stood out the most was "great for older swimmers". Although I'm 60, I don't want to wear a 1930s bathing suit, but the "Swim Sexy" ones aren't for me either. I'll let you know if it works out.
Excellent suit for laps. Good coverage on top, but I wear bike shorts underneath. I swim three times a week in chlorine, so I don't expect to get more than three months, although I sometimes do and I think it was in this suit.
Best Answer:I have not been in chlorine, but have worn it to the beach and it has not faded from the sun. I love it. Only one complaint--the leg holes are a little big, at least for me. I took them in and it feels better.
