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.

love the colorsAm active senior citizen, live in southern Florida and try to go to the pool almost every day for exercise. Have several Burke suits and for some reason the arm hole is always small, no matter what the size. I'm not particularly fat in the arm and have tried several sizes. This high top suit will give you more boob support, but don't expect support from the inside bra- for me they always run huge. There is always the assumption that if you wear a 16 or 18 then you must be big busted. However, the material and design is classier than many other manufacturers so it's worth trying.

Love this swimsuit!I basically put this swimsuit on and jumped in the water. It fit perfectly (true-to-size) and is extremely comfortable for lap-swimming. It offers good coverage, is easy to get into and out of, and is also attractively styled.

Great suit with limitationsUsed for lap swimming and aroebics . Fades quickly. Fabric wore quickly. Great fit and very flattering. Would be best for beach and casual wear.

Runs a little smallWear 10, and some 8s, in jeans and other clothing items and these were a little too tight. Plan to lose another 10 lbs so will keep them trusting that they will fit better then.
Style is very slimming and very stylish for the fuller fugired women. The quality of your swimwear material is also of high grade and long lasting, unlike those found in retail stores where they will only last three months then lose their elasticity and colour.
I chose this because the pattern was beautiful....unfortunately if you swim everyday, this is not the suit for you. I used this for two days and it is now all frayed and lost it's color too. very disappointed for the price I paid
