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.

Good suit - not great for small chested ladyI 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.

Did Not Fit RightIt 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.

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.

Didn't hold up as well as I hopedAfter 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.

Top too generousGood suit, but top is too loose...straps keep falling off...have to sew them up. Why don't you provide any with swimmers backs?
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.
I swim daily or do water aerobics. I have three Aquabelle suits that I rotate and they last me 4-6 months. I'm in the water an average of 1.5 hours a day. These suits have lasted far longer than any others I have tried and the others were much more expensive. Aquabelle offers great value for the price and very comfortable suits.
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.
I purchased this swimsuit for aquafit almost a year ago and I still enjoy wearing it. It is chlorine resistant and still has very good support. The band is made out of elastic, but is a little wider for the extra support. A great, stylish swimsuit!
