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 itI purchased this suit last summer and was impressed with how great it Fit and the look. The only thing I did not like, and reason for four stars is the strap. The strap was too long and not adjustable. I pulled it to size and tied it in a knot so everything fits perfect. I had compliments all summer on my suit. I'm a size 18 with D size breasts and they stayed in all summer. I frequently have professional garments made for me and feel that some good advise to individuals purchasing would be to remember that weather bra or strapless suit you should not be relying on the straps to do the holding. If the top is not tight enough to do over 50% of the lifting on your breasts then it's to big.

Amazing!I absolutely love this swimsuit. I tried on so many different swimsuits and none worked out the way I wanted them to. I ordered this suit in a size 14 and it was perfect. It helped hide my problem areas and I never once felt exposed with this swimsuit. Looks great, feels great and survived 6 straight hours on a float trip without getting uncomfortable! I was really concerned about the strap digging into my neck but there was never any discomfort. Finally felt comfortable with my body in a swimsuit!

Buyer BewareI bought two suits, this one and another one. Neither one have support for large chests. I am a size 18 and have a D chest, my chest is not overly large for my weight. This suit doesn't have any chest support. The strap to go around the neck is helpful, but it would have been nice to have included two straps and allow the option of going over the shoulders instead of around the neck. The skirt also lays kind of funny, it pulls up in the middle. My guess is because my stomach pulls more than my sides, but this is often the case for plus-size woman. If you make a suit for plus-size it should take into account the support and look on actual plus-size woman. I was disappointed with both suits and won't by swim suits here again until support issues are addressed. I did buy a cover-up that looks terrific. San Juan Purple Palm Draped Halter Dress

LOVE!!!I LOOOOOVE this suit!!!! It fits amazing and looks so slimming!! I can't wait to wear it! I ordered a size 18. It was however just a tad bit too big in the bust for me (I'm a small C cup)to be able to wear as a strapless but I didn't mind that. Also the strap was a little too long for me (I'm only 5'5) but again I didn't mind it. I can still make it work. It's just too darn gorgeous to send back :)

Functional and flatteringI use this swim suit for my water aerobics classes. It is comfortable and I do not feel self-conscious wearing it. It dries very quickly and since I take classes every other day that is important. I cannot think of anything negative about this swim suit.

Returning Swimmer from
Gotta love shortsI use this to swim laps and like the coverage it offers. I had one slight problem was the plastic panty protector liner. When removed, it left a sticky glue mess that stuck to me and I had trouble removing. I had to wear my old bikini pants under it.
