  • 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
  • Non-adjustable crossback straps
  • Signature power mesh tummy-control lining
  • Side seam measures 16" from Underarm to Hem
  • Sizes 8-16 fit up to a C/D cup; sizes 18-34 fit up to a D/DD cup
  • One-piece swimsuit fits true to size
  • 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it I bought this swimsuit for Hawaii. It was a hit. Great fit. I have a long torso and it fit great. It holds your tummy in and supports your bust. The straps in the back are a bit to short but that is my only complaint. It is a heavier material but comfortable to wear all day long. I wore mine most of the trip under my clothes. I never was self conscious about not wearing a bra. The built in bra is a bit snug but after wearing it a few times it seemed to fit better. I might have just gotten used to it. Overall my favorite swimsuit ever. I got many compliments and for a plus size girl that is flattering.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Greeat Quality and style Have 4 Aquabelle suits for my Water Aeorbics classes and I'm asked all the time Where did I get them? Haven't found this quality and style at the dept stores etc. It's been over a year now and I work out 4 time/week including winter and I rotate 3 of them (save this one for the beach) and they are still holding their shape and color Best buys I've made in a long while...Highly recommend :))) PS: I'm a 36DD and wear a 12/14 pant and get a 14 Suit, fits great!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I receive many compliments I bought this suit for water aerobics and to swim laps. This is my first chlorine resistant suit. I have gone through three (non-chlorine resistant) in six months but it is too early to tell if this suit will hold up. It is a very flattering style and I receive many compliments when I wear it. It is perfect for swimming laps but I do find the straps in the front sometimes restrictive when doing certain exercises in water aerobics. Overall, I like this suit and while it is too early to judge how it will stand up with continued pool use, I would recommend it. The only negative comment I have is that there is too much padding in the cups. I about a b/c cup size 10. This suit doubles my size which is not really what I am looking for during a work out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great suit - great price! I found this suit online after 2 mos. of aqua aerobics classes destroyed my previous $80 suit. The design is sporty and flattering and it fits perfectly, allowing freedom of movement while holding my 'bouncy bits' in place even during vigorous aerobics exercises. If it holds up to chlorine as well as the description says, it'll be the last suit I'll ever own (though hopefully future replacement ones will be in increasingly smaller sizes - lol).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Thumbs Up! I do laps and aerobics 5 times a week for my health. This is the 4th aqua belle suit I have purchased. Am currently using two , with one tucked away for later. I notice you must go one size larger because of the suit construction around the bust, which is quite substantial. This is first cross back I have ever purchased, and I need to get used to the feel of it and am just starting to use it. Overall, I like the quality and fit of aqua belle suits. They are attractive on and, to date, all are holding up for me. So I guess that means a "thumbs up"!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice suit I bought this suit because I've been looking for a plus size suit with a racer back (hard to find. I was surprised at how heavy the suit was and by the built in bra. These are nice touches. I use it for swimming laps and doing water aerobics. This suit is very heavy and hot in really warm weather. I brought it to Puerto Rico and was dying at the pool in the sun, heat, and humidity. So far the color has held up from the chlorine (about a month old).
Date published: 2013-09-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like this suit This is the tenth aqua belle suit I have purchased. I have been doing Aqua aerobic classes for three years, and the recently added water Zumba classes. I usually am in the water classes 5-10 hours each week. All the suits have held up well and it was time to order a smaller size. I have worn this suit twice, I like the style and the fit. I usually order the high neck style, and this was a nice change. The shoulders did not slip down as the tank styles tend to on my body frame. I would order this style again.
Date published: 2014-12-10
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bad for Rotator Cuff Problems I really like the way this suit looks, BUT it is nearly IMPOSSIBLE to get it on if you have any pain in your rotator cuff (common shoulder ailment for women over 50). The back is so high and the "power netting" lining is so strong and tight it is really difficult to pull up with a sore shoulder. I just sent it back today. Too bad, because it IS cute and looks like it would really hold up well.

Love the fit! Pleased with how it has held up in the chlorine. I swim at least three times per week. Great for Aquafit Classes.
Jan G on Nov 2, 2015
I will be going to the beach, so there will be waves. I like straps that are secure on the shoulders. A crossed back helps keep straps on. Plus, I like the color. I'm only a little worried that the thin stripes down the front will make my tummy look bigger rather than slim it, but we'll see when I get to try it on.
Laura T on Nov 1, 2015

BEST ANSWER: The Aquabelle line of suits are chlorine resistant.
is this a conservative fit?
A shopper on Sep 5, 2015

Long waisted?
A shopper on Apr 9, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Please measure your torso and view the sizing chart for a accurate size.
should you buy your regular size or slightly larger for good fit?
nellie on Jul 27, 2015

A shopper on Jul 18, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes it has very soft cups with a band support.
Does this suit have any tummy control?
Rita S on Jul 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This is a beautiful swim suit. The tummy control is slight, but the suit is very flattering.
I'm going to be doing water aerobics and need something like this cross back suit. However I have a droopy muffin top and need something to hold me in. I found one, but the cups were below my breast. Any suggestions?
Rita S on Jul 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I do water aerobics twice a week. I found that I really need a suit with a high neck instead of this style. This suit is great because it resists chlorine.
Is this suit mint and black or mint and navy?
A shopper on Jul 1, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Its mint and black. Love this suit - actually have it in the pink and black also. Great fitting suits!
Does it have a built in bra? Can I add and remove bra pads?
create. C on Apr 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The suit has a good built in bra that is black with nice cups and about an inch wide elastic band at the bottom of the bra. The band goes all the way around the suit so in front and back. Back opening is almost as high as a regular bra. I have not tried to add or remove bra pads. There is no pocket as you would find in a mastectomy suit. I use this suit often for water workout or water machines called Aquagym. Suit has held up well in pool environment for over a year. You migh be able to add gel pads to help with nipple show through.

Has anyone found that this suit (Xtra Life Lycra Aquabelle Mint Border Cross Back Swimsuit) scooped water while swimming laps? That has been my experience... so while I love this suit, I can't do laps with it. :(
A shopper on Jun 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I am not exactly sure what you mean by "scoops water" but I have not had any problems with my suit and I swim laps weekly. I love it! The only issue is that it is a little long for my torso so there is some slight extra material. Enter an answer to this question.
How will this suit hold up for waterskiing?
Lyndsey R on May 25, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I think the suit will hold up just fine. My suit is mainly used for water aerobics in the pool. My suit fits and looks fabulous. I'm busty and I never felt self conscious while jumping up and down. Plenty of support as well.

I think you'll love the way this suit feels, looks and lasts while waterskiing.

Good luck!
Is this for petite women?
julie on Feb 1, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately, we do not carry petite sizes.
I'm 5'2", 155 and a 36DD. Will this suit fit me?
A shopper on Oct 12, 2015

To be precise on the size to choose, we may advise to measure (bust, waist, hip and torso) and then compare in the size chart available in the following link:

does this fit small chested women?
nancy k on Aug 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This is a great suit- I love it! I was concerned about the sizing as well, as in the description it states it fits up to a D/DD. I'm far from that and it fits perfectly. Great for water aerobics class. I bought two! I think you will be very pleased with this suit
I also have a large droopy "muffin" top belly. When I get one that keeps the droopy belly from coming out the leg openings, the top is either below my breast or waaaaay too big for my bust. Suggestions?
Rita S on Jul 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have this suit in mint and also with pink trim. I have the "belly" problem also and carry most of my weight on the front of my body. I wear a 40 D bra and the size 18 is a tighter fit for belly. There is great support/control in this suit. I have to work slowly to get suit on and adjusted with some tugs to get bra support over my belly. Once all is in place it is a great suit. I use it for water workouts. It has held up very well in the pool.
What kind of lining does this suit have?
KayRS on Jun 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The lining is similar to the outside fabric, only a bit more stretchy. A very flattering fit.
Is this style available in a longer torso, such as a longitude?
Twyla B on Apr 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I am a size 24 with a 46 DD will this fit me
Fully lined suit?
Anne W on Apr 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No, not fully lined. None of the suits seem to be lined in the back which is too bad, because the suit would wear far longer with a back lining.
what if I fit a regular size 20 but only a B cup. Will this big too big in the bust?
A shopper on Oct 12, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Our soft molded bra cups should accommodate a B cup well.
Where can I find the color of the suit?
Marcia B on Sep 8, 2015

Usually this information is provided on the name of the swimsuit or in the description section. This item is a black swimsuit.
I'm a C cup but need size 20. Will the bra size be too big for me?
Lillian N on Sep 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I'm a D and this suit really holds me in tight. I don't think it would be too big for a C.
these bathing suits I've looked don't state whether they r lined? its very important
A shopper on Sep 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, they are well lined and really provide a slimming fit.
Shelf bra vs soft cup?
A shopper on Sep 3, 2015

This swimsuit has a soft molded cup bra with encircled plush empire band provides full bust support.
How do you which size to get?
A shopper on Jul 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I use my dress size to pick Aquabelle swimsuits.
My measurements are 45, 43 48 with torso of 72. It looks like the 22 bust and hip will be too big. Should I select a 22 or 20 size?
Kim P on Jul 25, 2015

A size 20 should work.
Do you have swim suits specifically for exercising? Is this particular one also good for workjng out?
Emerald A on Jul 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi Emerald! Our Aquabelle collection is perfect for water aerobics!
A shopper on Jul 2, 2015

You should be a size 14 (American size).
