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.

What is going on with the cups?The fit of the suit was great and I would have kept it except for one thing. The cups weren't "smooth"...and I don't mean they bunched or you could see a small seam through the material, I mean it looked as if I slipped a saucer over each breast...there was a perfectly round very visible raised circle in a ~3" diameter around each breast...basically forming the outer ring of a bulls-eye. Now my non-athletic style swimsuits have lower cleavage so its not about modesty but if there is going to be attention drawn to my chest I don't want it to be due to a weird design flaw. Its going back.

Wears out quickThis WAS my favorite suit. I use this suit for swimming 5 to 6 days a week as well as water zumba and aerobics. I loved this suit because it has a high neck and covered everything well and held everything in place. Over the past couple of years they have changed the cut and it no longer covers the bust area like it did. I also used to be able to get at least 3 months out of a suit, now I am lucky to get a month before it starts to get to "see through" to wear. I also wish they would make the D cup version of this in a size larger than a 16!

Great Bathing SuitI wanted to wait a while before rating this bathing suit to see how long it would last. I can report that other than the back seam showing some wear, it has held up really well. I usually get the krinkle type bathing suits since I am in a water class 3 times a week, but I don't love the feel of the material. I do prefer this type of suit.

Great lap swim suit - and it's cute!I have been wearing this suit for the past 2 weeks to lap swim at our neighborhood pool. It fits very well and is really flattering. I did not think I would like the built in bra, but I really do! I swim outside, but swim for at least 45 minutes. The suit is very comfortable! I highly reccomend it!

Great styleI purchased this swim suit about 3 weeks ago. When I tried it on with my panties and bra it seemed the perfect fit. I bought a size 22, which I always do. The day that I was going to wear it for my exercise class. I removed all tags and strips but when I put it on I noticed that there was not much elastic in the bottom part of the swimsuit. The top fit great but the bottom was very loose. I loved the style but the bottom was defected. I've purchased several suits but this one just had and extra big bottom.

Good fit but poor qualityThis suit had to be returned as it deteriorated at the seams. I only had it 4 months. I swim an a YMCA pool. Doesn't hold up to chlorine.

Nice suit but bust is too small.The size 18 does not fit a bust larger than a D. I won't be able to use it, so I cannot comment on the longevity or other aspects.
Because I had a radical mastectomy 38 years ago and need a high neck suit so my prosthesis does not fall out!!!! Practical..... not too interesting but it does the trick for swimming my daily laps :). With age, comes wisdom, lol.
I need a size 16 with a bra size for a 36J. Do you plan to have any bathing suits for larger busted women?

Best Answer:I, too, feel that swimwear designers and stores miss this market entirely. I'm "only" a 42 G or H, but I understand how difficult it is to wedge oneself into a suit that otherwise fits, but everything is just too bulgy/tight upstairs, if not impossible to use. Swimsuits for most, perhaps, but not yet "all."
This doesn't really help, because the suits carried are really not in the universe of the large-busted woman. To fit other places, the busts are too tight. To fit the bust, everywhere else is much too large. We realize we're a minority; we're also just plain hoping that someone, somewhere, ends up hooking up to our minority group!
Fortunately, I can "get by" with the DD fit for a 24, although I still kind of bulge out on top. But I know women who that...well, it just isn't enough!
Best Answer:As I know this is not an outfit....I am short also but I solved the issue by wearing it with a spandex belt and slightly blousing the extra fabric...it works for me. Hope this helps, it makes a cute little fashion statement also!
