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.
Shore Club strikes the balance between sexy and sweet, designed for women who want an everyday suit that sizzles. The line is full of fun-meets-fashionable tankinis, shortinis, skirtinis and swimdresses in vibrant, head-turning colors and patterns. Beneath all the flattering necklines and slimming cuts, however, is some seriously well-constructed swimwear: underwire or soft molded cups provide comfortable, sag-free chest support, while built-in, powernet tummy control panels whittle and smooth the waist.

Love the bubbleknit/smocking in the bust.I just ordered a second one, due to the bubbleknit tube-top fabric in the bust, which does include soft cups as well. I'm glad I read reviews about sizing; I ordered a size smaller. It fits well over my pregnant-looking belly. My problem is with how fast it fades and stretches out. However, the bubbleknit does not stretch out much. I work out in a physical therapy pool, with other senior citizens, 3 X week. So I'm not too worried about looks. This suit functions well for me. Other brands I've worn also stretch out too fast, but don't fade as fast. I also fault myself for not taking better care of them.

Cute, but not as a plus-sizeLoved the pattern, but the "tube top" approach does not work for my body shape. There is too much "top" above the cups which creates an unattractive bunching effect. Ordered a 20, could have ordered an 18 or 16. Combined with the 'tubing', the top portion was too much fabric for my too little chest (a 'B' cup on a good day). Just didn't get a good "feel" for the suit and design to try a smaller size.
Strangely, the straps are NOT adjustable. Straps are also positioned a little oddly in the front—as if they were not adjusted for the larger sizes. I've ordered three other blouson/removable straps suits before. This is the first time I've had this issue.
Usual good quality stitching and fabric.
If this fits your body type, you're lucky!
BTW—This is the first suit from SwimsuitsforAll out of 5 that I've not been happy with. I've had incredible service and really great suits from them. Could not be happier with the whole experience!

love it!Very pleased with this purchase. I only wish that your swimwear was made from non-polyester fabrics (cotton would be ideal) as synthetics make my eczema scream!

Perfect for the beachJust got this top and love it! I like having removable straps cutting down on unwanted tan lines. I may even wear it with a skirt. The bust fits nice and don't feel like I'm falling out. The length is perfect for me, I don't like my belly showing if I raise my arms. I didn't give it a 5 because the front strap holdes are unevenly placed. Wis it his came in more colors/patterns.

Secure top and good lengthI am happy with the fit and length of the top. One of the straps pops out in the back every time I try to put on or off which is terribly annoying because I have to either take off the whole thing to hook in the back or get someone to do it for me. But it stays fairly secure, so straps are not always necessary, however nice to have that security while in the water.

Beautiful vibrant colors; cups a little largeThis suit is very pretty, I ordered a 22 (normally an 18). It fit perfect EXCEPT for the cups, which are huge. Since it is smocked, it's not TOO noticeable, so I'll keep it & see how it does out of the pool. If it does become too noticeable, I'll have to buy some smaller cups & tailor the suit. I only wear a C cup & knew the D or DD would be too large but wasn't sure how bad it would be.

Nice but..The colors were brighter and my top had no green, it is blue and even some purple.. For me this ran too big. I ordered one size bigger then my clothing size. That normally works for me. But I could have gone down 2 sizes.. It is too floaty on me, makes me almost look pregnant.. If it fit like I was hoping I would have loved it but my boobs and the size made it way too much fabric.

Great Customer ServiceFirst of all I want to say that I ordered this top and the package got lost, I contacted swimsuitsforall and they shipped out another top overnight the next day!! Great customer service. I just got this last night, tried it on and it fits great, very flattering, hides the tummy area without looking frumpy. Can't wait to wear it to the beach for vacation this weekend!!
