STYLE # 2478
Ships within 1-2 business days
  • This is a swimsuit bottom and does not include a top for a full set.  Shop separate tops to make a complete set.
  • Created with Aquabelle's exclusive poly / spandex blend fabric: chlorine resistant, quick drying, comfortably resists fading, retains its shape and provides UV protection.
  • 3" inseam
  • Swim short with built-in full 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 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. Go ahead, dive in!

Black Loose Short is rated 4.4839 out of 5 by 31.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great short This is the only short in the Aquabelle line that I will buy. The others either fade quickly, the elastic in the waist disintegrates quickly, they fit too tightly & have no give or the velcro fly shreds. However, I cannot attest to the fadability of this short - I have only used this short in my pool at home (we use bacquacil, not chlorine). In the next few months I will be trying this short at the public pool I go to for aqua p/t (roughly 3x/week). That will be the ultimate test as this pool is HIGHLY chlorinated. If it doesn't hold up well in that pool, I will update this review...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coverage and comfortable These shorts are great for water aerobics, they are very lightweight, and do not ride up or become uncomfortable while exercising in the pool. The fit was perfect for even short person like myself. I don't like wearing a one piece swimsuit that shows every bump and curve these are perfect for some coverage and comfortable not binding at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smart, very smart. Finally, swim shorts for women! These were cute with my tankini tops. Very practical for plus sizes (like mine), neither sexy nor frumpy, just easy fun. Took these ocean swimming and straight to hiking. They dry off quickly - no soggy butt. They have a good inseam length if you are tall (I am 5'8"). Nothing to complain about at all!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the Loose Fit Love the loose fit of these swim shorts. I have tried swim shorts before but they were always too tight. These are perfect. I paired these with a Tankini top and together they look so cute.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't Be Happier! Swimsuits are such a pain to shop for! I took a risk and ordered these shorts along with the "Beach Belle Blue Lagoon Blouson Tankini Top" and am so excited! These shorts are the perfect length for my short thunder thighs. I bought these for casual swimming and just lounging in the sun and their comfort and coverage allows for both! I am extremely pleased with this purchase and hope they last. They have been through one washing and came out just fine :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love, Love, Love these shorts! I use these shorts for water aerobics. Since we do a lot of jumping around, I like to be covered. These shorts are a bit longer and have ample leg room for activity. I WISH you would also make these without the panty liner so that I could use them as a coverup. Great shorts.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fit a bit Big I wish I had gone one size smaller. The inseam seems quite long so I pull them up really really high. I will still wear them on my trip but after that I will specifically use them for the hottub and if they don't fade I will definitely order another pair, just smaller.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fit! Used only once so far, and am impressed with the fit. They are loose enough to hide the faults, but not so loose that they balloon out in the water. I'm glad I bought them.
