  • This is a swimsuit bottom and does not include a top for a full set.  Shop separate tops to make a complete set.

  • Boy short bottom fits true to size
  • 82% Nylon / 18% Extra Life® Lycra®
  • 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 exclusive chlorine-resistant swimwear collection engineered for high performance at every curve. Sporty yet feminine, the entire range is constructed with our AquaSculpt design fit system—ensuring full tummy and bust support. The anti-bounce Aquaform bra with fast-drying, lightweight cups and plush elastic shapes without sacrificing comfort. Aquaslim power mesh is strategically sewn into all the one-piece suits for a flattering middle. In fact, it’s been proven to cinch the waist by 1 ¾”. The superior quality helped Aquabelle earn the coveted Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval, meaning these durable suits (some made with Xtra Life Lycra) have been third-party tested by the long-trusted authority for colorfastness, fabric abrasion, UV protection, and chlorine resistance.

should I wear anything under?
A shopper on Jul 20, 2014
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!
