  • 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.

Bandeau/Halter Sheath is rated 4.4375 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flattering & Sexy I am 5'6" currently a size 14 with a DDD / E bust and I ordered a size 16 to accommodate my bust size and the suit fits great! The bust area fits great. Of course not as supportive as something with under-wire, but it's flattering and keeps the girls in place. I like that you can use pull ties the shorten the length of the dress to a tankini looking style...I just wish the shirring went the entire length of the suit. I don't think this suit should be considered as having tummy-control and that's why I'm giving it 4 stars instead of 5 but I think it is flattering even if you have a tummy because of the style. I just had a baby and camouflages the tummy nicely. I love this suit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Love Love I can't tell you how perfect this bathing suit is. I'm 5'4" size 14. I bought a size 14 and it fit perfect. It holds in all the right places and slims in the tummy and hip area. I use this suit mainly at my pool and beach. I swim as well and I've had no problems with top slipping down when I don't use the straps. I'm a 36 C so I'm not big on top so I've had no problems with the top fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful suit! I just recieved this suit and I am soooooo happy with it! I was very hesitant to order a suit online considering I always have a really hard time finding swimsuits that fit me right. I have a big chest and a short torso and I prefer to cover my thighs and have a suit with good tummy control....all while still feeling sexy. This suit fits perfect! It has good chest support and the way the straps are made, they provide great support while still being comfortable. And I love that fact that I can tie the straps around the back to make the suit strapless. I wear a size 14 clothes and bought this suit in a size 16 and I am very happy with it. I usually size up in swimwear due to my large chest (38F). If you are looking for a suit that flatters, provides chest support and covers all your problems areas I HIGHLY recommend giving this one a try! I couldn't be happier with it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not supportive AT ALL To start off I need to say that I am very big chested. I wear a 40G bra and let's just say, gravity works. This suit has no support in the bust regardless of how tight you tie the halter straps. With a normal halter suit, the tighter you tie the straps, the more support you can feign. This suit does not do that at all. It doesn't matter how loose or tight the halter is. The straps are only there for show. Your chest will have as much support with the straps as they do without the straps. Overall, its a pretty suit with a lot of coverage. If you have naturally perky breasts. this suit is for you. But I'm going to have to wear a tight strapless bra underneath mine so that the chest of this suit doesn't fold over the top of my abdomen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely Retro Suit What a lovely suit! So flattering and comfortable. I love that you can adjust the sides so that you can either wear it as a dress or it can look like a regular suit. I have a very large bust and the support isn't bad at all. Definitely recommend this suit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit! Loved the way it fit me! I'm a size 14 and DD bust and I felt I was supported better than other suits from here. I would feel comfortable wearing without straps. The skirt isn't "old" feeling, I feel sexy in it. Thumbs up!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOVE IT! It's so hard to find a swimsuit that flatters the plus size body. This suit is awesome and does just that. I wore it to our annual memorial day weekend at the river and got many compliments.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from no support at all I just ordered it and i fit great on the tummy and everywhere else but the boobs. the halter does nothing for support. my boobs fall out of it when i swim. the straps start from the sides by the armpit and then halters. it doesnt lift anything.

I am over 50 and have a couple of problem zones even though I go to the gym regularly. I hope this will cover the hip part a little and still look sexy. This style has always suited me when I was younger and still does as I have a nice hourglass figure. Hope this will look good and does what its supposed to

Does this style come in any other colors?
Tara P on Apr 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi Tara! Sorry it just comes in black.
how long can the bottom go to? from hip down
A shopper on Sep 18, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It depends on how long u want it to be the ties on the side allow you to make it longer or shorter when it's at it longest it can hit me 5'7 to about just above mid thigh
So I did my measurements and I am in three different sizes. My bust is only a size 16 the the biggest my hips are a size 20 and my Torso is a size 18. My cup size is a small C cup. Please help I really want to get this suit but do not know what size to get?
Brie Z on Aug 27, 2015

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:

Wear DDD in a 14/16 will this fit my bust?
Kathy M. on Jun 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi Kathryn!
The cup size for a 14/16 would be C/D. But remember that the cup size is proportional to the size. We suggest you to take your measurements and (in inches) and based on them, you can compare them to the size chart and check if any other size would fit you.


Have a great day!
Does this have a bottom piece or is it just a skirt?
kelly on May 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This is a one piece and the side draws up or down for length.
Is this suit fully lined, including backside?
A shopper on Apr 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I believe so. Meaning it has a layer?
Is it possible to order a size 8 in this swimsuit? The smallest the "choose you size" drop down menu will let me choose is size 10.
krystal on Mar 18, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately, we start this swimsuit at a size 8.
Does it only come in black?
cjb726 on Feb 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, unfortunately it only comes in black
Does this have a built in bra?
A shopper on Feb 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Not really its formed like a bra but I feel like I constantly pull at it because the straps are not attached to the bandeau part I like it better and feel more supported with the straps wrapped around me but if your bigger than a c I would recommend a suit with underwire I just got a swimdress in with the chevron top and crisis cross back and it's supports the girls. Hope that helped a lil.
