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!

Best purchase!I never purchased a bathing suit online before but needed a few for my water aerobics classes. I took a chance and ordered this suit... BEST suit ever! So comfortable and stylish... very slimming! My only complaint is that the hook is hard to attach alone, but suit offers enough support for me to get to the pool and have someone do it there. So happy to find this company!

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.

Same suit different qualityI have purchased 4 of these suits in the past two years. My complaint is how hard it is to hook up the back of the suit. Since my husband passed away I have to have someone at my health club hook it for me. The last suit I received feels loose around the bottom. I like everything else about the suit and would recommend it.

BummerWas super excited when I received this suit, looks great on. Just 2+ days after the 60 day warrantee ended I noticed the bottom and armpits began to thin. Now everyone in my areobics class has noted that I must get a new suit because the entire bottom has become transparent. Super embarrassing and waste of money.

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!

Finally, a performance suit & a bargainMetal clasp! Awesome. Plus high neck. Prefer racerback with shoulder blads showing. I can be active and not be concerned with a wardrobe malfunction. Plus chlorine resistant! Bring on the Lycra. Long lasting is the name of the game. THANK YOU, THANK YOU!
Slimming and full coverage with bust support. I take swimming classes and I'm always adjusting the bathing suit; now I can focus on just swimming. Full coverage with bust support so my bust doesn't flop around everywhere.
I like to stand up paddle board in local ponds and lakes that seem to always leave a brown residue on my pretty suits. So I'm hoping this black one will hold up well and being black I won't have to deal with the dingyness that the lake and pond water often leave.
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!
