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.

Just one problem.This suit is a true fit, flattering, works well for me in the pool for water aerobics except for one thing. The straps are a bit loose and tend to slip down on my arms-won't stay up on my shoulders. I had to have them shortened. They sit too close to the edge of my shoulder and could have been set in closer. Otherwise, I'd recommend this suit to anyone.

high end bargain priceIt feels very expensive with great control without feeling like a girdle. Easy to slip in and out with. My full dd bustlike is contained with great fit under the arm. No squishing of breasts but great control more than worth the money especiall if you are full-busted.

I'm going to get several in other colorsGreat for resort wear. Add a bright wrap around the waist and with the retro design you'll fell and look very glamorous .

I would by this suit in several colors!Haven't wore it swimming as of yet, but plan to in January...in Jamaica. Very flattering. My measurements measured 18 on top and 20 on bottom. 20 fits well. Very pleased with the way it supports my chest and hides my tummy. Now if I could find a way to slim my legs I would be all set...I did purchase the black sarong wrap and that does help with the thigh issue...Wished they had it in the tourquoise or blue color.

Great, classic suitThis is a really flattering suit. I ordered over ten suits from two different companies and this was the winner. I have an ample chest and this was supportive and gave me a great shape. My only complaint is that the leg openings are a little snugger than I'd like them to be, but I'm still really happy with the overall look.

Looked nice on the modelI ordered 3 DB suits from SFA and did not keep this one. I loved the style but the torso was too long so it bunched up enough not to be flattering. I also did not like the leg cut as it did not flatter me. I am 5'4 & usually a 18 but ordered a 20 as I have found SFA suits tend to run small. Not good for my body type.

Love it!I love the way this bathing suit flatters me! The design in the middle hides my post baby pouch that I've been having a hard time getting rid of! Overall, I feel sexy, I love it and my husband loves it!
I'm hoping it'll be good for water exercise and it's cute. I liked it and kept it but it isn't good for my water exercise though because the straps fall down a LOT. Better just for lounging by the pool.
I have worn Delta Burke before and trust the name. Wanted another one of hers that you have listed but it is not chlorine resistant thus I chose this one which is a similar style and appears to be. Have a few questions about the straps but hopefully they will not be a problem for me.
I have purchased this same suit in a different color in the past and have received many compliments on it. When I saw that this same suit was on clearance it was a no brainer to purchase another color. Summer is just around the corner and will enjoy wearing this suit in a different color. Thanks!
I sought out this swimsuit because it is a Delta Burke. I have owned a Delta Burke Swimsuit in the past. And it lasted FOREVER in all sorts of conditions, clhorine, saltwater, sand and washing machine. And I have worn it for YEARS. So many years I can't remember how long ago I bought it. Delta Burke makes a quality product. I am a returning customer. This swimsuit is a beauty and has great reviews. The concerns in the reviews are not of any substance and the recommendations far outweigh them.
Best Answer:This suit has no wires. It is very comfortable, but supportive. I have 2 black ones, and more recently bought a blue one to rotate for aquatic exercise classes. The black ones have held up well, but the whirring on the front of the blue one has stretched quite a bit, leaving it sort of hanging when wet.
There is no wire at all. The fabric has great elastic strength and there is elastic under the cups to hold it in place. The fabric is draped in an unusual way that seems funny when you look at it, yet when you put it on, it just works! Actually quite flattering, and I am BIG.
First, we suggest you to take your measurements and then, you need to check on the sizing info cart (next to the "choose size" box) to see which size would fit you better. Remember that the cup size is proportional to the size. Compare in the size chart available in the following link:
I wear a size 18 but a C cup which size should I get?
A shopper on Mar 24, 2015
Best Answer:Hello! We suggest you to check on the sizing chart since you have to take into account not only your top size, but the also the hips, waist, and torso measurements are important, mainly because this is a one piece. The difference between size 16 (cup C) and size 18 is 2 in. Our recommendation is that you can try size 18, so it doesn't feel too tight or uncomfortable. If you feel that is not quite right, you can always return it.
