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.

You Get What You Pay ForThis style is fantastic -- it's a good copy of the Bagley Mitschka suit they also offer on this website at twice the price. We ordered both swimsuits for my daughter and let her try both on. You cannot tell much difference at first glance truly. But she's large busted and this one was definately the lesser fit of the two. If your more of an average type fit then this might work just fine for you; otherwise pay the extra money for the designer suit. You'll need the extra touches it offers to look extra great; more support, more lining, fabric, shape, more everything good. The styling in both suits is flattering and impeccable and you'll love that either way.

I love thisI'm wearing this with the short board shorts (offered on this site) to go snorkeling. I can change out of the shorts for a skirt and go to lunch. Found it odd that the crossover panel in front wasn't sewn in except at each end, but it doesn't matter when I am wearing it. Everything fits nicely and I like the wider shoulders(no indent), More sun protection for Kauai, pretty suit. I have it in the Mirage material, too, but I don't see that one here anymore. I have size 16 and 18 (Lost 20 lbs.)and both fit at that size, according to chart. Mostly...I LOVE the price; I caught a sale at less than 50 bucks! A steal for this one.

Fantastic!I couldn't be happier with this suit or this site! I'm beyond thrilled! Suit arrived on time, fits like a glove, and is BEAUTIFUL. I've never felt better or more confident in a swimsuit. Was worried after seeing comments about loose leg holes. I'm quite hipp-ey and have zero problem with them. I do have to work to keep the shoulder straps identified when I'm not wearing it. There're three straps on each side and can get confusing. This is a whole lotta fabric, but a whole lotta AWESOME!

Sexy timesThis suit is sexy. I'm a tall, full figured woman who carries most of my weight in the middle. This suit is very flattering on me. The comfort, style, and the way it fits makes me feel great while on the beach. I've added a sarong and large hat for the ultimate head turning enjoyment. It's a classy suit that actually fits and fits well. Ladies, be sure to size up one.

So slimming!!This is the best slimming and flattering swimsuit I've ever purchased. I am a 16w and have wide hips. This slim suit really controlled my love handles and made me feel well supported and comfortable in my skin. I wore it with a black sarong also.I was so pleased that I ordered another color, espresso. I also used it as a support garment under my summer dresses.

GREAT suit!This suit is SO easy to wear. I have purchased so many bathing suits to try and cater to my larger body type (and chest), and this suit feels expensive and supportive at the same time. The thick straps grab perfectly without any bulge from the support. The suit has fabric gathered at the torso also for some added camouflage :) I wish they had more colors!!

Classy!!This bathing suit is very classy. I've gotten so many compliment s on it and I've only worn it once cause I just got it. It fits pretty good the bra part is a little big for me but the bottom fits perfect, I'm a size 22 and I wear a 40D. It also works great as a body suit under a long black skirt for casual days. I tried them on together it looks great.

Total flopI ordered a size up based on measurements and this still didn't fit. I happen to know my measurements are accurate because I just had a bridal gown fitting. Wasn't even close. Just looking at the suit though, I'd say to keep in mind that the straps are pretty wide which is nice but there's a LOT of fabric that could really be annoying if you're active.
Just moved in to apt complex w/heated pool. Am overweight and wanted something modest, inexpensive, durable, and comfortable to exercise in during the winter. Hoping this suit lies somewhere near where those qualities intersect.
I am inquiring to know the best way to determine my sizing. I recently had a baby so things are a bit different now. I am a size 12 in general but the sizing chart states that size 18+ is for larger cup size in the chest. How do I decide what size to get?? thank you
Best Answer:Yes, this swimsuit features soft, smooth unseamed molded cups within a shelf bra construction. The front of the swimsuit is lined with our signature powernet tummy control panel, which comfortably shapes and slims your torso and tummy.

Best Answer:I love this swimsuit. The top is extremely comfortable with the wide straps. It wears like a typical one piece with extra material that crisscross in front with rushing to flatter the chest area. I have also taken down the straps and tucked under my arms and worn like a strapless top while sunning at the beach. The top has enough support it stays up. Although I only wear a B-cup. I'm not sure it would stay up as well without straps if you have a large chest size. I hope this helps.
I am not sure what you are looking for in your question but I will try to answer it. This suit is my go to favorite suit. I am 5'8" and this suit is great. The little band goes in the front to gather near the bustline.I have sort of broad shoulders and I wear the shoulders fanned out to give me a more feminine look. I am also large busted and need support, this suit works great, I think it is the wide shoulders that helps. I hope this answers your question.
