  • This is a swimsuit bottom and does not include a top for a full set.  Shop separate tops to make a complete set.
  • Aquabelle's exclusive polyester spandex stretch fabric is chlorine resistant & colorfast. Spandex adds comfort & stretch to retain fit and resist bagging.
  • 3 1/4" inseam
  • Full, built-in mesh panty
  • Short swim bottom fits true to size
  • 82% Polyester / 18% Spandex
  • 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 revolutionary chlorine resistant swimwear collection available in sizes 8 to 26. Both our Xtra Life Lycra fabric or exclusive Poly/Spandex fabric blend swimsuits are constructed to endure repeated chlorine exposure and will still look brand new, swim after swim! All Aquabelle swimsuits are designed to resist chlorine longer than ordinary swimwear, and they won’t weigh you down in the water. Our sporty-chic one piece suits are created with tummy-control Power Mesh lining to keep your midsection feeling firm and smooth. Lightweight molded wire-free cups shape without sacrificing comfort for a secure fit. Dive in!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The loose shorts are fantastic! I bought these loose shorts for aqua aerobics - they are great. I could have gone a size smaller, as they are quite baggy. Very comfortable to wear.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good fit I needed a swim bottom to match a tankini I already have. These shorts are a nice length, not too long, not too short. The fabric is a silky knit, which is why I gave it a 4 star rating. Not sure if they will keep their shape after being wet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable fit! I'm 56, 5'10", and about 210 pounds. My fit problem is my menopause belly. I ordered these shorts, and the bike shorts, and three tops. I find that these are very comfortable, and are a good length. I feel like I'm covered, and have on a pair of gym shorts. Anything in the stores is just too small.
