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.

Colors are vibrant!I brought this set for aqua boot camp and aqua aerobics. I listened to other reviewers of similar tops who said they run small so I ordered 2 sizes up and it was way too big. I exchanged for my regular size 18 and it fit great except for the bra cups. I am a GG cup and while the girls are held in, they are smooshed. Please make tops for cup sizes larger than a DD. I will make my own adjustments to the bra cups and band to make it fit my girls better. It's a long top and it DOES float up when doing water aerobics. The bottoms when ordered true to size are too tight in my opinion. I just ordered another pair one size up.

Great color-snug fitJust received my order... bought 5 items, but now I see that the sizing is not generous and in actuality feels like it runs a size smaller... will try again at a larger size... but I have never worn clothing at that size... so...
Not sure that the material will hold up in a pool... loved the idea of a shortini... biker shorts for plus size gals... but I felt like I had nothing on... need to ask my hubby to check if it is sheer.
The top with the racerback is great...I have small shoulders so great to have such reliable coverage. "My girls are small" yet still found the top on the tiny side... I carry my weight on the upper tummy.
I guess only wear and time will tell...
I LIKE THE OPTION OF BEING ABLE TO CHOOSE A DIFFERENT SIZE TOP & BOTTOM. ALSO FEEL MORE COMFORTABLE IN A MORE MODEST STYLE OF PANTS THAT WILL STILL ALLOW ME FREEDOM OF MOVEMENT IF I WANT TO SWIM LAPS IN A POOL BUT LOOK STYLISH ON THE BEACH AS WELL.
I am older and have to cover more or my leg area and the top is giving the type of coverage and support I need. Now I won't avoid the pool, keeping me healthier and mobile....I'v been really feeling the weight I carry around with me every day, the older I get (60) the more issues I have and it is not like when you are 30. Should have done this years ago!
I take aquacize classes, has anyone had problems with top riding up while excersizing?

Best Answer:I also take aquasize classes and yes the top does ride up BUT it's an extremely comfortable top to wear for class so when I get in the pool I just tuck it into the short bottoms. Problem solved. I'd actually buy another suit identical to this one for class.
I am pear-shaped, and most of the time I have a problem with tops riding up, I had no problems at all. this top is very comfortable. and with the racer style back I feel I have freedom to move the straps stay in place
