  • 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!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Fabric failure I loved this suit! However, the fabric (xtra life lycra?) has suddenly frayed in the "butt" area. It is now whitish with broken threads (I suppose that's what it is) and is now "see through"! I'm so disappointed because the fit was awesome. I especially like the bra area which is so very comfortable and flattering. I rinsed it after every time in the pool.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice but with issues Overall a nice bathing suit (although I have not worn it yet), but I wish the material stretched more or that they offered some aquabelle suits in petites. I'm a short (5'0")full figured woman and ordered the size 10 which is the longest torso that will work for me. I knew the bust would be tight (I'm a 36DD), but figured the material would stretch more then it does. The suit is very tight. Also the way the stripes run it seems to emphasize the belly, rather then de-emphasize. Please consider true diagonal stripes across the torso and a lower back.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing Have had this suit for 4 and a half mos. using it about 3 times a week at water aerobics. The suit is pulling apart at the side seams as well as loosing it's elasticity. Specifically ordered a suit compatible for chlorine swimming but this definitely does not meet expectations. Very disappointed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lots of compliments I swim a mile four days a week in the community center pool and I rotate this suit with three others. I have had this suit for 4 months , so it was used about 12 times or so. I got many compliments on this suit and how nice it looks. However it is already starting to show wear at the side seams and on the back seam. The Material is thin. I rinse after each use and wash in a gentle cycle occasionally. I think this is a great suit for occasional wear, but not for routine chlorine exposure.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful, but not quite right I love the look of this suit, and it is a very flattering design for a curvy girl. However, the lining does not have much elasticity, so you have to wrestle yourself into the suit. The bra band is too tight, so you can see intentations and puckers where it wraps around under the bust (front and back). It loostened up after I wore it once, but it's still too tight underneath. Which is unfortunate because the outside (non-lining part) fits and looks great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good bust support; Like the bust support and overall fit; with use, even after careful washing after use in chlorine pool, it has stretched badly. Overall, I like the suit (and others I've gotten from you) but wish the chlorine resistance, fading, and stretching was a bit less. Thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Fit This may be the best fitting suit I have ever owned. Everything seems to fit perfectly. Also, flattering. Cannot comment on how the suit fares in chlorine because today is the first day that I wore it. Hoping that it will meet up to the chlorine resistant feature and not wear on the backside like so many suits do. Highly recommend this suit.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not really chlorine resistant! I bought this suit specifically for water aerobics. After wearing it approximately 3 times a week for an hour at a time over a period of about 3 months, it is considerably faded. The black is now gray. I always rinse the suit out after wearing it. It's very disapponting, as everything else about the suit is perfect!

can the straps cross?
Cheryl on Jul 31, 2014
Best Answer: No, the straps do not cross, but the swimsuit fits so snugly that the straps do not fall down even in the roughest surf.
