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 buy this suit year after yearThis is the best looking suit I have owned. I've order high end suits and none compare to the look of this suit. Don't judge it until you try it. I get compliments every day. I'm older and have lots of jigglies to hide and this suit does a great job. I think the fact it covers my thighs has a lot to do with the good look of the suit. I use it everyday for swimming at the pool or beach. Hope this helps. I don't write reviews but hope this helps all those plus size frustrated women out there.

Started Out Great but had a Bad EndingWhen I first bought this suit I though I found the "ONE." Great fit, slims you, streamlines you for exercise and laps in the pool. I was the belle of the ball and envy of the YMCA. I bought this suit in early summer. I wore it and other suits 4X's a week. I was careful to rinse it out, only used swim care laundry products and would never spin it in the wet suit wringers provided at the gym. I noticed a few snickers yesterday at the pool, the suit in the back was completely see through worn out in the bum all the way up my back. You could see everything God gave me. I was very disappointed after paying all that money for a suit that didn't last 3 months. I have other suits from this site that are still gorgeous. This suit is a great idea, go back to the drawing board and improve the durability and I may try it again.

Perfect unitardI have several unitards I wear while lap swimming in a pool w/ male and female swimmers with much better bodies! This suit is fantastic! It doesn't show the bulges that other unitards reveal. ALso, this suit is great for D-cups like me. It stays in place while swimming. The legs are longer than other unitards, but I'm starting to like that. Note the other unitard available from this website does not have any bust support. This one is much better

What's with all the Black?Runs Small.DisappointngWas looking for an aquatard for pool workouts after knee and hip replacements. Disappointed this suit is only double lined in the front. I bought one size up, but it was still very tight and definitely could not wear with no lining over the rear. Also, Swimsuits for all, WHAT'S WITH ALL THE BLACK?! Around 90% of all the suits on the site are black or have black in them. Lighten up! It contradicts your efforts to take pride in fuller figures. You still expect us to wear "slimming" black swimsuits. Doesn't work for slimming, looks awful and makes you even hotter in summer. Get fuller figure, imaginative women to design your suits. Also, you'll need to go to DDD cups.

I love this style; suit fades quicklyI wear this suit in chlorinated water 3-4 times a week for water aerobics; afterwards, I sit in the heated whirlpool. Several people have asked me where I got it--they are looking for something to cover those senior cellulite thighs without ballooning up into their face like skirts do. I have bought several more of the exact same style, and I wish they made more styles of this long-legged aquatard. I, too, think that it does not hold up as well as expected in chlorine.

I LOVE MY SUIT!!!!I love this suit! I use it 2-3 times a week for my Aqua Fit Class. It has GREAT support and is figure flattering if u are a pear shaped woman. I have gotten so many compliments on this suit. I am a size 14, pretty small waist and wide hips. I am also a 36 DD. I ordered a size 16 and it fit me perfectly! I will soon have to order a 14 as I am loosing weight pretty steadily between Aqua Fit Class, Zumba and my DVD's at home. I hope they never stop making this suit! All the other ladies in my class have to deal with their breast bouncing around all over the place because we do a lot of jumping and running in this class...NOT ME! I wear a black regular bra underneath and you can't see it at all. The suit has built in cups that are great but I like extra support in class so that I can get a good workout without bouncing or pain!

A Good Suit for the Self-ConsciousI have gained a lot of weight the past few years and was dreading returning to Maui but this suit really addresses all my issues. I bought board shorts to wear over the bottom as it's pretty thin. I wish the shelf bra/bust was more supportive but I am very busty and can't blame it on the suit design. For those complaining about the wear when using it in chlorine pools 3-5 times a week, you can't expect a fashion suit to hold up in those conditions. That's why they make Speedos and other brands for athletic swimming. If I used this suit in a hot tub several times a week that is either chlorinated or brominated I'm sure it would only last maybe a dozen times, as any other suit that I've ever put through that kind of abuse!

Iowa Silver swimmer from
BEST Swimsuit of my Entire LIFE!!!This is the Absolute BEST swimsuit I have EVER had in my ENTIRE LIFE!!! I have an extra long torso & apple figure so went up 1 size for a perrrrfect fit! First time ever a suit does NOT ride up my whooo-hooo & cut into my shoulders. Cups are where they should be as well. It's modest and has full coverage. This suit is SO perfect - I'm in Love! I'm also long leg'd and the leg/short(s) measures 8 1/2" long, great length! Easy to get into & out. I glide thru the water when swimming laps! I'll never buy another design but this one!!!
I previously purchased this on another site in pink, I like the suite double layer in the front (don't like the single layer in back ) it is comfortable and fits well, I swim laps 5 days a week but it did not last long, only 5 months top layer ripped and is unwearable, however i feel i did not follow the wash and care instructions as much as I should have and will give the suit another try and will follow care instructions to the T and reevaluate the condition in 5 months.
I like the look of this suit, however, I am in the water at least four times a week participating in aqua fitness and it only lasted a little over two sessions (which is about sixteen weeks) before I noticed it did not hold up well in the pool. Good fit.
I don't enjoy waxing myself overly often for as often as I go to the beach in sunny southern California. I like having this option available for the combination of projection, cold water and hiding sensitive skin bumps in embarrassing locations :).
i ordered the pink version and loved, loved, loved it. I been taking aqua aerobics, H2O fitness and swimming classes for the past year and half and this suit is the only suite I used for each class. Classmates always asked where I got it from, plus it was perfect for all the workouts and looked cute too!
It doesn't float up in the water, it doesn't cause any chafing when walking around, it's slimming and comfortable, and perfect for aquafit. There is no distraction whatsoever of straps moving, or panties riding up, or tops or skirts floating. It feels great and you feel no self consciousness or worry that anything might be showing.
I need a swimsuit that covers my fat upper thighs yet enables me to move freely through the water while running and doing aerobics. I hope this also allows me to wear a water bra so I can feel more comfortable in a mixed environment. also, if I need to don a pair of shorts, it appears slender enough to fit under for added coverage
I am hoping to contain my thigh area, although I plan to wear swim shorts with this as well. I have lost weight since I last tried it on, and could not get it on, so hope it fits this time. If not, back it goes, and hopefully, they will have one size bigger as a choice next time.
I am going to the beach to snorkel and thought this suit looked athletic. I read all the reviews and also would like to cover my chubby thighs in public! Ordering from this site has also been a pleasure for the past three years. I know I'm getting a great bargain.
