  • Aquabelle's exclusive polyester spandex stretch fabric is chlorine resistant & colorfast. Spandex adds comfort & stretch to retain fit and resist bagging.
  • Scoopneck
  • Full encircled shelf bra with soft, wire-free molded cups
  • Non-adjustable crossback straps
  • Signature power mesh tummy-control lining
  • Side seam measures 16" from Underarm to Hem
  • Sizes 8-16 fit up to a C/D cup; sizes 18-34 fit up to a D/DD cup
  • Swimsuit fits true to size
  • 82% Polyester / 18% Spandex
  • Hand wash.
  • Flat dry.
  • 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.

Aquabelle is our revolutionary chlorine resistant swimwear collection available in sizes 8 to 26. Both our Xtra Life Lycra fabric or exclusive Poly/Spandex fabric blend swimsuits are constructed to endure repeated chlorine exposure and will still look brand new, swim after swim! All Aquabelle swimsuits are designed to resist chlorine longer than ordinary swimwear, and they won’t weigh you down in the water. Our sporty-chic one piece suits are created with tummy-control Power Mesh lining to keep your midsection feeling firm and smooth. Lightweight molded wire-free cups shape without sacrificing comfort for a secure fit. Dive in!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst fitting, ugliest suit I have ever owned I bought this suit several months ago for lap swimming (swim 2-3 times a week), thinking I might like to get more bust support than I get from a typical compression suit, and have not worn it yet because I hate it so much (too much trouble to return, since I don't want to exchange it, and they conveniently put it in the small print that you have to ship it back at your own expense if you don't like it). I measured myself carefully and ordered the appropriate size (14, what I always wear in tops and bottoms). Ugh! The straps are way too long and not adjustable, so any support I might be getting from the built in bra is a moot point. It bags in the waist and is so tight everywhere else I can't breath. Worst of all, it is extremely tight under the arms and around the legs---just what you want when you are doing serious lap swim! One side of the neckline is higher than the other. On top of that it just mashes by figure up and looks completely unflattering. I am 49 years old and not terribly vain, especially when I am getting down to business in the pool, but I don't need a swimsuit that makes me look even worse than the reality. I will never order from this company again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Fit is very very small I had to return it because I couldn't even get it on and I bought it one size larger than the size chart. Very disappointed in the fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for "pear" bodies This suit has ample room in the hips, which is nice if one is big there. The top is great for the woman who is NOT overly large; it also has a wee bit of padding. The suit is fairly long in the body for those who need a longer suit. It reaches up fairly high into the armpit - high enough to hide the mastectomy scar under one of my arms (but the scar isn't giant). Basically, this is a great suit for the pear woman who doesn't have a lot of rolls to hide, but is just bigger on the bottom. It is too thin and too plain to disguise anything, but it is excellent for aquafit as it covers well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from comfortable one piece This bathing suit is wonderful for swimming laps! Love the fit and I just ordered my second one because I wore the first one out!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Really tight - not alot of stretch I had high hopes for this swimsuit. I wanted a suit for lap swimming that crossed in the back. First thing I noticed is how TIGHT this swimsuit is. My Speedo's size Misses 18 have more stretch and are more comfortable than this plus size 20 suit. This suit covers everything but feel like it doesn't have any give. I believe I bought the right size. I usually wear a 18 or 20 in swimsuits and bought the larger size. I tried it out for lap swimming this am and it worked out ok but I'm concerned how long it will last since there is no give to the suit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice suit but too long I bought this suit for water aerobics and it's a very well-made suit. Unfortunately, I'm short through the torso and this suit is designed for women who are not. I wish it came in "petite."

I just tried on 12 suits... All of which we're beautiful and would have worked if they didn't have the cup liners for D and DD...do you have any suits that do not have those fixtures and just allow you to maybe have a bottom heavy lower half and not be so big on top...that would be great???
A shopper on Feb 25, 2015
