  • 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.

Black Convertible Top is rated 3.5833 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice quality but small I sized up like I usually do in bathing suits for some give but this one is cut so small I can barely breathe. There wasn't a size inside the bathing suit so I'm not sure if I got the wrong size or what.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fashion not function Read the reviews and, like KC Shannon noted, this is for looking fine at the beach—not for splashing, boogie boarding or water aerobics. If you're smaller in the chest and love suits with optional straps, this will be your new favorite top! Felt it was a true to size fit. This is a snug fit (things get squished) without an underwire. If you flop without an underwire, this is not the suit for you. If you're smaller (B-C), then you'll love it! So many suits are too big for me in the chest—I really like this suit being 'smaller'. Suit is lined with that stretchy understretch tape that keeps the suit from riding over your chest. (I have no idea what it's called!) Padding in the chest doesn't seem as "heavy" as other S4A suits—which I like! Good construction. Made in the DR with US and China material. Straps are for decoration—like I wanted. Straps can be tied in the front or behind. Yes, I tested the straps out in heavy surf and the top comes down as expected. For some handy folks or your trusted tailor, a little nip and tuck on the straps and top will make this fit a snazzier fit. I might just bring the center in a little bit for a little lifting. Not needed, but if I wore it under a gauzy top, it would really pop. This is my fourth and fifth suit from S4A—really impressed with this and the mint-chocolate chip convertible top.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sexy! I read all of the reviews on this prior to purchasing and am so glad that I did. Yes, it is true, the straps are very far to the side and they do not offer much support. It is more for looks than anything. I knew this when I ordered based on the reviews. I didn't really need the support, but it's important to mention. I ordered my regular size and it fits perfect! I feel sexy and confident. Very comfortable in the suit!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cute but not for a tall girl This looks really cute on, but it's just not long enough to be an active swimsuit with the short bottoms. As soon as I raised my arms or move it was going to ride up and show my belly. Probably going to return it. But it's adorable! Would probably work great on a shorter lady.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks Like The Picture! Bottom line: This is not for water aerobics or active swimming. This design is for a classy and sexy look hangin' at the pool or on a boat. I read ALL the reviews on this top. They are correct, there is not enough support and where the strap is placed it does not help to lift the "girls". However, my solution to most of my swim-tops is that I just go ahead and wear a bra. For this swim top, I have a "convertible" bra that allows me to hide my bra strap behind the suit straps. Works great and my girls are up and in place! I have two bras that are "old" and I designated them to my swimsuit collection. Rarely underwire swimsuits work for me so this has been my way of not being held captive by a swimsuit design. If I really like a suit (like this one) I work with it. The top also gathers gently around the waist like in the picture. It's a classic look and I love it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful fit but no bust support. There is barely any bust support. The straps don't attach to the bust they attach to the sides. It looks and feels like you're wearing a strapless top. I had my straps sewed on at an angle so they actually lift the top. Perfect idea because now my bust isn't sagging they have the right lift and fit. This is a very sexy top!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love the look, but isn't practical. I love the look of this suit. A lot of reviews said it fit a little big so I didn't order up a size. I probably should have. I was worried the chest would be too large, and instead it's quite small. The straps aren't connected on the sides or top of the suit--it's hard to tell from the photos. Definately not enough support at the top of the bustline. I've had three kids and I feel better with a little lift from the straps. It fits a lot like a bandeau on the top, the straps are purely decorative. The band underneath is wonderful though, I really can't wait to order another suit top to try from this company. I really wish it was better for me--the look is stunning.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stylish retro style Love the retro look and the shearing makes the suit very flattering.
