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.

did not care for fit of boy short which I ordered previously when wet Ordered 2 pair bike shorts in size 18. Waist on both is 5 " smaller than previously ordered boy short also size 18. I hope they are mismarked. I don't know a single size 18 person who could get into these. Definitely no quality control. Re-Ordered 2 sizes larger than I normally would.
I'm a plus size girl, very self concious, who loves the beach and pool. very conservative and these swim shorts are perfect for me. I have been looking for something like this for a very long time. Hope they don't dissapoint.
I've been looking forever for something to cover upper thighs. I swim off a pontoon boat and these look like they won't float up or fall down. Reviews weren't great for how long they last so for the price I got 2 pair.
not available in nz - Started work as a swim instructor and need water resistant shorts for the job. also prefer a bike style short to loose fitting as a personal preference will be sharing your site on face book as its hard to find good quality swim wear in large sizes at a reasonable price in NZ
Chlorine Resistant & conservative appearance, i plan to actually wear this under a one piece swim suit for exercise class & plan to use it as biking shorts. Runs true to size, quality fabric but doesnt have a lining for lower front inside tho but how I plan to use the shorts doesnt matter
I have a large tummy and the brief on the bathers don't fit very well so I have these adjusted and replace the original bottoms on the bathers. The prices are so fabulous that I can afford to alter the bathers made to fit me comfortably
Since I am older, I am leaning more toward more coverage. As an older adult, we do not want to give up swimming at the beach or public pool. Extra coverage is wonderful! Please think about making a capri length.
I have large thighs that rub together and I need something to protect them from doing that when I'm wet. These biker shorts will do the trick. I wanted something that didn't riding up in the middle as I walked and that won't be bulky so that I could wear a cute sun dress over my swimsuit. I might be overweight but I'm not dead! I still want to look the best that I can look and feel the best that I can feel in my clothes.
I wear these bike shorts under my swim-dress for more coverage and a cute look. Ordered true to size and would recommend going up one or two sizes as they are extremely snug and a little hard to put on.
I choose this item because plus size women sometimes have rolls on thighs at the top and this does not look good in a bathing suit. Coverups and skirts usually don't work well in the water. I wanted something that would cover what I don't want anyone to see and that the fabric will stay in place in or out of the pool.
Best Answer:I bought a shorter style by the same company first, then bought these in the same exact size, these didn't fit at all! I was so disappointed and had already thrown out the packaging (taken the liner and tags off too) because I was sure it would fit like the previous shorter ones.
