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.

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!

Glad I Found This SuitI haven't been swimming in the suit yet and may not get to a pool this summer but I wanted to have a suit like this available so I'd be ready to swim at the drop of the hat. I have terrible cellulite on my thighs and didn't want to spend an arm and a leg on something to cover it. I wish I had bought a larger size and if the price ever goes lower I will buy a larger suit and a smaller one so I will always have this kind of swimsuit. I wish there were more colors. I have no cons because I haven't worn it yet

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.

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!

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

Comfortable with great tummy supportI use this suit in my water aerobics class. I have lost over 60 lbs and this suit really holds in some lower tummy buldge. I like how long the legs are as I am not comfortable showing my thighs. The legs do not roll up amd the should straps are comfortable. My only critcism might be that it is designed more for women with larger bust sizes. Some xtra padded inserts might be nice to make it smoother for those of us that are B cup or under.
Most of the 26-28 reviews were positive. Clorine restistant and great comfortable coverage. I'm am troubled however, that the back seem and lack of back lining will be an issue, as the biggest complaints seemed to be these. Also some bust support issues. I'm not concerned, there. Look forward to rejoining my class at the McGrath YMCA in Rancho San Diego, CA.
As a water aerobics instructor having aqua shorts on helps in demonstrating leg movements in the water. I was always hesitatant about trying an Aquatard and am extremely glad that I did. Love this addition to my suit collection.
