  • Aquabelle's exclusive nylon fabric is made with Xtra Life Lycra spandex which resist chlorine 5-10 times longer than ordinary suits. Chlorine resistant & colorfast, retains fit, shape and looks new longer.
  • Scoopneck
  • Full encircled shelf bra with soft, wire-free molded cups
  • Signature PowerMesh tummy-control lining
  • Side shirring detail
  • Sizes 8-16 fit up to a C/D cup; sizes 18-34 fit up to a D/DD cup
  • 82% Nylon / 18% Xtra Life Lycra 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.

Aquabelle is our exclusive chlorine-resistant swimwear collection engineered for high performance at every curve. Sporty yet feminine, the entire range is constructed with our AquaSculpt design fit system—ensuring full tummy and bust support. The anti-bounce Aquaform bra with fast-drying, lightweight cups and plush elastic shapes without sacrificing comfort. Aquaslim power mesh is strategically sewn into all the one-piece suits for a flattering middle. In fact, it’s been proven to cinch the waist by 1 ¾”. The superior quality helped Aquabelle earn the coveted Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval, meaning these durable suits (some made with Xtra Life Lycra) have been third-party tested by the long-trusted authority for colorfastness, fabric abrasion, UV protection, and chlorine resistance. Go ahead, dive in!

Side Shirred One Piece is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good suit - not great for small chested lady I bought this suit for AquaFit classes. It's good - simple - but as we know, ladies come in all shapes and sizes and this suit is meant for the large chested ladies. As a plus size woman with a B cup, the bra lining on the inside pokes up out of the front of the suit and overall it's very chest flattering, with little support. Everywhere else, it's just fine. I think I'll make some alterations with my sewing machine to make it work better for my body.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Did Not Fit Right It was a nice looking suit, but the bra size was huge and I'm not, so I was too loose and I had to return it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice and comfortable! The suit is a very nice durable suit for the gym...It does however run a bit large and as we know the suits tend to stretch with the daily usage especially in chlorine. As long as you are aware of it they are a very nice suit.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Didn't hold up as well as I hoped After using this suit about once a wk for aquacize during the past 5 months it has faded and stretched out. It is good looking but doesn't stand up to very active use in a pool.

How does this suit stand up to playing in the water and waterskiing?
Lyndsey R on May 24, 2015
Best Answer: This particular did not hold up as well as the others I have gotten. The straps broke down after a couple of uses. All the other suits I have purchased from here were fine. I do water aerobics several hours per week. This suit did not take care of the job in regards to all the jumping we do.

Is this a long torso suit?
A shopper on Nov 25, 2014
Best Answer: I am long waisted and it was fine but I did not like how low it was cut in the back. I prefer straps that cross in the back.

What size do I need if I wear a 3XL?
Cynthia L on Jul 28, 2015
Best Answer: It depends on the size chart you're using. All 3XLs are not the same. It would be best to look at the size chart for the 3XL you're wearing. It should tell you either the number in inches for bust, waist and hip measurement or the equivalent size range. Then you'll know what size to order on this site. The suit you're looking at does run a little large, so you have a little extra room.

is an empire band, a medal, plastic or cloth material?

what is an empire band?
A shopper on Jul 22, 2015
Best Answer: An empire band runs just under the bust completely around the body to give excellent support to larger busted women. Most swimwear manufacturers only put a piece of wide elastic across the front of the suit just below the bust (resulting in less than satisfactory holding power) but Aquabelle designs have it all the way around for real support that's comfortable.

Most of the measurements indicate I'd be an 18, but I'm a B-cup when it comes to my bust. Will the 18 fit me, or will I be "swimming" in that area?

unfortunately, it will be big in the cup area.
