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.

A nice modest cutThe good: The inner "bra" is is a shelf bra made of strong latex fabric, similar to the crop top style athletic bra that creates a "uni-breast" look. It provides moderate support, but is not not super flattering. The cut is conservative, especially around the arm holes. This is one of the few swim tops that I feel comfortable wearing to and from the pool without a cover up. Everything that belongs inside the suit stays inside. The bad: Chlorine resistant fabric is woven more tightly and doesn't breath, feels kind of plasticy can be kind of hot. The plum color is a bit more to the blue side, not as pink as I expected.

Makes me look sexy!I ordered this top because I do not like low-back swimwear at all, and this racerback really fit my needs and comfort level. The padding in the bra area is perfect and offers some support. I'm a B-almost-C cup and everything is held in nicely without any jiggling around. I have a long torso and find this covers it just fine, with room to spare. It's a bit tight in the armpits so I'd probably just buy a size bigger next time. It's great to find modest swimwear that still looks great!

Lane SwimmerI bought this specifically for lane swimming. I purchased a size 24 because my bust is a 44DD and I'm a chunky girl. The bust is the best fit I've ever had in a swimsuit, it's like I'm wearing a bra but it's comfortable and not constricting. The bust is very padded which I rather enjoy so your nipples stay hidden haha!! The racer back style keeps the girls in place and my bathing suit isn't falling down where I always have to adjust myself. The fabric is very high quality for the price. My cons are that the mid-drift to hips is snugger than it should be for a size 24 and the bathing suit takes forever to dry! Other than that I'm happy with my purchase, the snugness just gives me incentive to swim more to lose weight faster :-)

Extremely Happy with These Tankini TopsThis is my first purchase at S4A and my first swimsuit purchases in years. I am busty and have more weight on top than bottom and have searched for a supportive racer top in malls and other stores to no avail. This style will be great to wear. I can see putting it on in the morning on vacation and not changing out of it until dinner time. Throw over a tee or coverup and it will be perfect. And my husband immediately liked the look. I ordered the same racer back in a pink multi print and love it too. I'm going to look for 2 more in other patterns.

Excellent TopI needed a high quality suit that would give me the coverage I need and want, the support I was looking for, and a top that stayed in place while working out in the pool without me having to adjust it constantly. This top stays in place and I feel confident in a place I have never felt confident before. Will definitely purchase again if this one ever wears out!

Order larger!Beware... based on the size chart, I ordered a 16 which surprised me, I usually get an 18. Okay, so it was tight...really tight... I'm exchanging it for a size 20! Not returning mind you, but EXCHANGING. I have been looking for this exact suit for forever. THANK YOU FOR MAKING A PRODUCT FOR "REAL-TIME" WOMEN!!

A Swim Suit Gotta Have!I purchased this top for water aerobics. The racer-back cut provides a lot of support, which I need (40K cups). I love the style and the comfort. Since it rolls up a during my workout, I will be using this top for leisure water activities because it's just too cute to send back.

flatteringThis top is pretty good, I ordered a size 16 ( I'm an apple body type and a 14) and it looks great. My only complaint is that these tops are short. This is the 3rd top I've ordered from s4a and they all seem to run pretty short. I kept it though for lap swimming.
thought it would be comfortable in the water -- I was right. Thought it would look attractive out of the water - I was right ... really like this. Great for yard work too ... hot? douse myself with the hose.
I liked the styles and the size was true fit. Since I am a Aquatic Bootcamp Instructor with 8 classes a week. I need good quality as well as good price for my suits. This place suits both of my needs, and I am pleased with the product.
Wanted a black top to go with black bike shorts. I truly wish that Aquabelle would make a one peice externded length Aquatard in black. It would be sliming and very sexy for those of us who want to show off the curves with a one peice extended length Aquatard in solid black. That would be sexy..
I choose this tankini because I've been going swimming every day and needed something more "serious" than the suit I have that keeps falling off my shoulders. My body is longer and I've never worn a "two piece" so I figured this would be a better fit than taking my chances with a one piece. ;)
I wanted a two piece for the convience of getting in and out of when using the toilet. but this design puts to much strain on my neck and doesn't give me the bust support i need. I will continue to look for a better design for me when they make one.
How long is this top? I'm only 5'2" so hope it isn't too long.

Best Answer:I bought this top for vacation to the Dominican. I am 5'6" and it was came to my waist area. It was just fine for me. It's very comfortable and gave a lot of support in the chest area, which I needed.
