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.

"TEST: Earth formed 4.54 billion years ago, and li"TEST: Earth formed 4.54 billion years ago, and life appeared on its surface within one billion years. The planet is home to millions of species, including humans. Earth's biosphere has significantly altered the atmosphere and other abiotic conditions on the planet, enabling the proliferation of aerobic organisms as well as the formation of the ozone layer which, together with Earth's magnetic field, blocks harmful solar radiation, permitting life on land. The physical properties of the Earth, as well as its geological history and orbit, have allowed life to persist during this period. The planet is expected to continue supporting life for at least another 500 million years.
Earth's outer surface is divided into several rigid segments, or tectonic plates, that migrate across the surface over periods of many millions of years. About 71% of the surface is covered by salt water oceans, with the remainder consisting of continents and islands which together have many lakes and other sources of water that contribute to the hydrosphere. Earth's poles are mostly covered with solid ice (Antarctic ice sheet) or sea ice (Arctic ice cap). The planet's interior remains active, with a thick layer of relatively solid mantle, a liquid outer core that generates a magnetic field, and a solid iron inner core."

Nice SuitI'm 5'3-1/2" - I wear a size 38C bra and weigh 135 pounds. I ordered a size 10 and size 12 (not being exactly sure of what my suit size actually was) I tried on the suit this morning in a 10 - It seemed a bit to big in the middle area (too much material for me) - a longer torso would probably look nicer. I will be returning this suit because of the way it fits me - if my torso was a little longer it would be great!Customer service is fantastic!!!

Great suit for lap swimming, great fit!I am a lap swimmer and this suit is perfect. It supports, and holds you in! It is quite flattering. I found it fit a bit small, and was happy I bought one size bigger. During my first swim the straps twisted a bit in the back, but after on later swims it stayed put. I wish the legs were cut a bit higher up (just personal preference) and that it came in different colors.

Good suitThis is the second time I've purchased this suit, but specifically waited until it was on sale. Although the color doesn't fade as quickly as some, chlorine and frequent use causes this suit to wear out pretty fast - after about 4 months of regular lap swimming. That said, I LOVE the way it fits, feels, flatters and I'm sure I will buy another one when its time!

Not as good as the Ocean brand!I've always purchased the OCEAN brand from you and loved them. These no longer being available, I tried this one. It definitely is NOT the quality of OCEAN. I like the look, feel etc. but know it will not last as well. I'd also recommend buying the size larger that you think you will need. PLEASE BRING BACK THE OCEAN BRAND!
Suit was chosen for chlorine resistance and straps that cross in back and cannot slip off shoulders during water aerobics and lap swimming, which I do 5 days per week. Also, the price was excellent, and that along with the free shipping clinched the deal.
Best Answer:I have not had any problems putting the suit on or taking it off. I have purchased this suit in numerous sizes as I have lost weight over the past year. It is my favorite active suit for water aerobics.
