  • Aquabelle's exclusive polyester spandex 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!

Black Cross Back Swimsuit is rated 4.2381 out of 5 by 21.
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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great suit! This swimsuit is great! It fits and flatters (it's not so easy considering the size 18 and the bigger bust). The only problem is to get in because of the very snug fit. But once you are inside, you can enjoy the great support and an excellent silhouette! I ordered another one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good suit This 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!

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 First time mail order for swimsuit Wanted chlorine resistant material. Daily workouts can cause normal product to last only 3 months. Good fit. Strong support is good, but makes it challenging to get out of it. I am not disappointed with this suit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for exercise I exercise regularly in the pool so this suit provides great support for a D cup it also holds in your tummy, very comfortable and no slip with the straps being crossed bought two for a change out.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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!

I can't remember why, but I've never worn it. It is too difficult for me to put on. I have severe arthritis in both shoulders. I should have returned it and still have it, but still haven't worn it.

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
