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.

Sexy and great coverageThis has been the first tankini top that I will be proud to wear in public. I am someone who is extremely conscious about my appearance in swimwear and have not found anything that I considered flattering in years. The sheer panel is just enough "peek a boo" to be sexy and classy. The built in bra provides Great support for top heavy gals in the triple letter range and you get this at an affordable price. Great tummy coverage and the peplum hem takes this from an ordinary swim top to trendy and fashionable. If I could change anything, it would be making the top about an inch or two longer.

Beware of secret "hole" of fabric.I didn't notice in the photos, but there is about an inch of fabric missing from the "peplum" part-- this is fine if you're planning on using a high cut bottom, but I bought the top and was just going to use a normal bottom and it basically makes a frame for my belly button. Not flattering! I wish the peplum opening was either completely closed or wider-- an inch just seems like they ran out of fabric. I know I'm not doing a great job at describing it, but just look closely at the photo (about where the model's belly button would be) and you'll see what I mean. I guess if you use the high cut bottom, it's fine. I just thought it would be cute with a pink bottom but the weird hole prevents anything other than a black high cut. Also, I don't have a particularly long torso, but like one of the other reviewers, I wish that the top was about an inch longer. I feel like the peplum, for lack of a better word, pops out which makes me look a little hippy. Overall, I really like the idea of this suit more than I like it in reality. (for the record, I'm about 5'9" , normally a size 10, and ordered this in a 12).

Excellent Support!This suit is a very flattering style. I am a size 18 with a 38H cup size. I bought a size 20 and the top fits perfectly. Sexy, but provides great coverage. Looks like a one piece. Pairs nicely with the Aztec print beach pants I also purchased. Perfect resort wear.
