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.

terrible no support on topThe bathing suit is super cute, I am a size 18/20 usually and I bought a 22. The fit was cute and very flattering being plus size, however there is no support in the chest. I am just barely a C cup and it fit great I thought. Put it on and went into the pool with the family at a hotel. Swam underwater and when I came up the top was down!!!! The way the straps are they don't hold the top up. Completely embarrasing. If the straps were on the actual bust part, it might work better. Unfortunately I have to say i wouldn't recommend it if you are planning on swimming in it. Just glad I went into a pool before heading into the ocean!

Little Black SwimsuitThe style is exactly what I wanted and it looks just like the photo in real life. My only dilemmas are that the bathing seems quite long in the torso, I'm average height and the cups are not supportive. I wish the halter strap was sewn to the cups, I may need to have a seamstress adjust it. There is no way I could wear it strapless and even then I don't know where you tuck the straps. I am a plus size girl so it fits very well everywhere else and actually made me look thinner. I just wish the bra was more supportive. I'll still keep the suit and just be careful bending over while on holidays haha

Top too flimsyThe top kept rolling down just standing in my house! I could only imagine standing up in water or in waves at the beach. The top definitely does not fit to size and the straps are connected to the side NOT to the top so they do not help hold it up at all! I like the style and am debating about trying a larger size once they refund me for my return. However, it would be much better if the straps were connected to the top and/or if it had an underwire for more support!! So I may go with the similar one that has the same style but tank top straps instead.

Great Black SuitI bought this suit and one other because I couldn't make up my mind and I love them both!! This suit is so well-made and attractive! I have to say that measuring yourself and using the size chart worked like a dream for me. This suit is a little big in the chest area, but that is the only con. Everywhere else it fits perfectly and I couldn't be happier with the fit and quality of this suit! Highly recommend!

love itOrdered this swimdress for a pool party, Ive been looking for a design like this one, got a 12 size, fits perfect, love the length of the skirt. About the breast support, its not that great, is just good, since I wanted more support, I made a few modifications to it. I crossed and saw the straps to the back, and I saw the front part of the straps to the bra part. I feels so much better now!

Awesome :)Absolutely love the design of this swimsuit! I have been searching for a new swim dress for months and i love this one. My only problem with the design was that the straps are not connected to the cups and for my DD-E's I preferred a bit more hold up, but 3 minutes with the sewing machine and the problem is no more! It's a cute outfit and sort of sexy without showing too much skin, and as we all know, you can't go wrong with a little black dress :P

great vintage looking suiti love this suit. the halter top is very flattering. i am plus size (size 24) and it fits true to size. i carry weight in my stomach. the skirt sat right under my stomach and wasn't very flattering so i brought it to my seamstress and she was able to bring the skirt up higher on the sides so it hangs from my hip. it now gives me the this vintage hourglass silhouette i was hoping for. it was an easy and inexpensive fix.

Sooo ExcitedI was so anxious about going to Cancun for my honeymoon. I'm not really big, but I've had 2 kids so I have a bit of of belly that I can't get rid of. This swimming suit makes me feel so much better about myself. I can now go on my honeymoon and feel okay to hang out in the pools and at the beach. I saw others comment about the straps and I think that as long as you order it in the correct size you'll be fine!
I chose this suit for its classic LBD look. It will be great for poolside parties when you don't want to "show" too much. Can't wait to try it on, and tell my friends and family about this sites' and selction of styles and size availability. Update to follow.
