  • This is a swimsuit bottom and does not include a top for a full set.  Shop separate tops to make a complete set.
  • Front poly/mesh lining
  • Side seam measures 6" from Waist to Hem
  • Comfortable, covered wide elastic waistband
  • Provides full coverage
  • Brief swim bottom fits true to size
  • 82% Nylon / 18% Spandex
  • Hand wash.
  • Flat dry.
  • 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.

Our iconic Beach Belle swimsuits are all about classic style, smart coverage and ideal comfort. Whether you’re looking for traditional floral or attention-getting prints, the collection includes contemporary designs and colors that works regardless of shape and body type. Available in skirtinis, shortinis, swimdresses, sarong-front suits and side-tie tankinis—Beach Belle swimwear flatters all figures and is guaranteed to be a forever favorite.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not enough coverage I wear a size 10, and these "fit" me, however, in the area down where you should be covered, the pants were not tight. In fact they gapped on me, because there wasn't enough fabric. Regretfully, I returned them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So versatile Great fit! A quality, basic black swim brief is a must have for the summer. I expands your swimsuit wardrobe simply by pairing it with different tops.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Black Briefs These briefs were disappointing. The seat coverage was good, but the front didn't fit well at all. The legs were too big or something and didn't cover the bikini area well at all. I actually returned the item.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bring back style 2039, please Was happy when S4A offered this brief and style 2039. 2039 offered higher sides and a 1" turnover waste which offered more coverage and support. Recently ordered 3 of the 2039 in navy and I love them. As they no longer have that style in black, ordered these. I ordered 2 sizes and prefer the larger size as it offers a little more coverage. Would like to see S4A offer both briefs again even if the 2039 was a few dollars more...it would give those of us who buy separates another option. After all that, I must say that no one else offers a better price on briefs.

what is height of this bottom?
A shopper on Feb 1, 2015
My waist is 43. My hips are 42.5. What size should I order?
Patricia W on Jul 19, 2014
BEST ANSWER: We would like to suggest that you watch a video. Next to the sizing option of each item, there is a 'sizing info' chart. There you will then click on the 'how to measure' tab. You will then be able to watch the suggested video. If you still do not know what size to get after that, we would suggest you try a size in the middle of the ones that you are in between.
will this cover my love handles?
haley r on Mar 12, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it covered mine. However, it is not any more constrictive than a regular bathing suit. I added a nice tankini top with a flattering skirt and it looks great with that because it doesn't cling through the waist.
Is this mid waisted?
haley r on Mar 12, 2015
BEST ANSWER: yes , fits just like brief under pants & comfortable,
How do I determine size?
A shopper on Dec 11, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I'm not really sure what your question means. Their sizing chart is very accurate. I wear a size 18 in all my clothing, so I ordered a size 18 in this swimsuit. The fit is true, at least for me. The whole suit fits great. I hope that helps you. :-)
how big is the leg opening from seam to seam?
Debbie on Jan 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: That will depend on the size you are choosing. If you are unsure of what size to pick, you can consult our sizing charts on each item page.
Hello, my hip size is 41 inches while my waist is 32 inches. Is size 12 or 14 the best size for a high waist bikini bottom please?
