5.0 SO FAR I LOVE THESE SHORTS!

PROS

  • Dries Quickly
  • Lightweight
  • High Quality

CONS

  • Poor Fit

BEST USES

  • Aquacise
  • Casual Swimming
  • Aquaaerobics

ORDER 2 SIZES UP FOR COMFORT. I first ordered 1 size up and returned for 2 sizes up. I prefer a loose fit. 2 sizes up these were very comfortable and flattering .I love them and my husband thought they were flattering too, he liked them. YOU SEE NO SKIN peeking through at the backside area which is important to me. I will probably order another one just to have a spare.

  • No

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

5.0 Great short

PROS

  • High Quality
  • Attractive Design
  • Dries Quickly
  • Flattering
  • Lightweight
  • Good Fit

CONS

BEST USES

  • Aqua Pt
  • Casual Swimming
  • At The Beach

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...

4.0 Just what I wanted

PROS

  • Flattering
  • Lightweight
  • Good Fit
  • Dries Quickly

CONS

BEST USES

  • At The Beach
  • Casual Swimming

I purchased these for two reasons, to swim in a pool and to wear for a beach vacation. I wanted something that gave good coverage, especially in the thigh. I like the shorts, though wish they were a bit longer, an 1" to 1-1/2", not much. I found they rode up a little. The shorts did what I expected and made me feel very comfortable while on the beach or in the pool. The shorts do run small...I went up a size for these shorts.

I'm used to my swimsuits lasting longer than three months - especially when advertised as "chlorine-resistant." The brownish fuzz is already coming out around the back center seam. not pleased with the quality now.

Are the swimsuits true to size ????
A shopper on Sep 4, 2014
Best Answer: For the best possible fit,
Please compare your bust/waist/hip measurements to the sizing chart below:
http://www.swimsuitsforall.com/browse/sizeChartLanding.php
Please disregard the " Cup Size" on the sizing chart. ( It's generic to the universal sizing statistics.)
** Your bra size is different from your actual bust measurement.
