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.

Beautiful and SexyI LOVE this suit! It was extremely flattering on me. From the pics, I thought I would like it, but didn't know I was going to love it. YEA! I couldn't see from the pics but the bottom of the suit is not exactly a straight line, but has some frill to it - not quite lettuce edge, but something to give it some depth and movement if that makes sense. It is retro and I felt pin up girl sexy in it without it being super revealing. It completely covered my problem areas (tummy and upper thighs),and smoothed out my hips. It's hard to find plus size suits that make you feel pretty, but this one fits the bill.

Very attractive stylingI purchased this swimdress because it was a longer length skirt. I have heavy thighs with severe cellulite and this helps hide it. I also chose it because I have had breast reconstruction and experience pain under my arm with tight clothing. This halter top swimdress is very comfortable.I am 60 yrs old, 5'4" and weigh 170 lbs. The size 14 is perfect!

Pretty silhouette but no supportI love the look of this suit, but I am 5'11" and this suit is too short in the torso for me. The top does not offer much support since the halter straps are wide set. If you are not particularly tall, this is a great suit for sunbathing, but if you plan on swimming (especially in the ocean), this suit's top will probably fall right off.

Bigger size not a problemI was nervous about the sizing because I wear a 34E bra. Although I'm a size 12 by their sizing chart I went with a size 18 based on their info about cup size. I figured that if it fit in the bust I could take it in anywhere else. I needn't have worried because the fit is good all over, the silhouette is great and it's comfortable. Fit may be an issue for someone with a long torso. My only wish is that it gave a little more lift in the bust. But considering how it makes my tummy disappear I'm not complaining.

Very Very NiceGreat basic black swim dress. Wish they had this in other colors. The fit is great- and the best part is it really hides my BIG hips. As such, it is really flattering and with my hour glass figure that is not easy to do. If you have hips you want to conceal- this suit is for you.

nice, but not for me. :(the rueshing did not fit right. think it was a flaw. Also I have a long torso and this suit seemed to have a short torso. On a side note I ordered a different suit as well and it was amazing!

AWESOME!!!! Saved my Cruise.For months I've been searching for the perfect suit for a Caribbean Cruise. I'm Petite with the figure of a beach ball with DD bust. I hate the cut of traditional swim suit bottoms and love the coverage of the skirt. I tried separates with a skirt and found that the skirts were too tight and the tops left too much fabric/bulk in my tummy area. The swim dress was my final option. I'm sooo glad I ordered it. I feel pretty.
I am hoping this fits well and hides the middle age spread! I have not worn a swimsuit for many years and now need to put one on for hydrotherapy pool. If it looks good I may even venture to the pool when we cruise!
Praying that it has some support for aging breast, halters usually help a little & are flattering. Mostly, hoping this will help control and hide huge budda belly, as well help seperate the breast from the belly..... suit still looks stylish and hope be a match for my changing body.
my chest bra size is DDDD, when measured as directed my chest is 44 but my hips at 40. would you recommend the size 16 which is the right size for my hips or an 18 which might be to be in my hips? what is your recommendation? Thank you
