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've never had boy shorts for swimwear so I want to give them a try. I'm short, 5'2", and the skirts and dresses all fall too low. I wish they would come up with a petite option that is shorter in length.
Need vs availability in the department stores.I am in need of a bottom to my purchase. I purchased this product in the past and was not pleased that it only lasted a couple of months however it is the end of the season and I find myself in need of a bottom once again.
Hoping they will fit tightly and not ride up. Great promos this holiday weekend, saved more than I paid, plus got free shipping. Had my eye on these for a while. Will update when I receive and wear them!
I bought these for lap swimming and because they were chlorine resistant. After wearing them a dozen times they turned brown in the salt/chlorine hot tub after 15 mins of being in there. I notified S4A and customer service was so prompt and kind. They are shipping me a new pair free of charge to Canada. Such a great company, that's why I keep ordering from them and their plus size suits are awesome :-)
Best Answer:I've been wearing the Xtra Life® Lycra® Aquabelle Black Extra Life Lycra Plus Size Boy Short in a water aerobics class 3 times a week since Jan 2014, and never needed to wear underwear under the shorts. They fit snugly, but not too tight, and there is no gap in the legs of the shorts. In fact they fit like bike shorts.and give me the extra coverage I like, but are still comfortable enough when performing jumping jacks, crunches, and high knee exercises. I love my boy shorts!
