  • This is a swimsuit bottom and does not include a top for a full set.  Shop separate tops to make a complete set.
  • Skirt with attached panty hides hips while minimizing rear and thighs
  • Skirt 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.

Lynn W on Jul 31, 2014
Most of your swimsuits have front lining which works well but the back (particularly the bottom area) quickly loses its elasticity and becomes transparent. I'm hoping that I can prolong the life of these swimsuits by wearing a swim skirt over the sagging swimsuits.

What is the length of the skirt?
· Add Your Answer · Votes 0 0 · A shopper on Apr 30, 2014
Best Answer · mid thigh is not a great ans. every person is built different. To me it is important to know the inches. to get the proper estimate of coverage, some are made differently so this is important.
Pat K on May 21, 2014

I have noticed that all skirts are listed as "mid thigh". An 15" skirt on me, at 5'2" is very different than an 15" skirt on a woman who is 5'10". An exact measurement would be a much better reference. Thanks.

how long is it?

Best Answer · I wear an 18 in this skirt, due to my plush "assets". This skirt still gives me complete coverage of my rear, hips and thighs, to fingertips. I hope this helps you make a great dicision, to get this swim bottom.

Long enough! :-) I didn't measure it but I really like the length. It's just right for me. I swim laps and do water classes 4-5 times a week and was looking for this particular kind of fabric that holds up better in a chlorinated pool. I'm actually really happy with this skirt and the top piece I bought along with it. (With same fabric) Hope that helps.
