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.

Will use & buy againOrdered two sizes up after receiving one that was one size up. Good price. Haven't worn long, but down side is I wish the material was heavier/not as thin.

These shorts are the best!I don't know why these shorts received such poor reviews.I absolutely love them and have been buying them for years. The only thing wrong with these shorts is that they seriously are made too small so you just have to buy them in a larger size. I wear size ten in jeans and I bought these in a size 14 which fit but I just ordered them in a size 16 and they are even better. So go ahead and order them, just get them two or three sizes larger than what you need.

Great stretch, great coverage.When I first pulled these out of the package, I thought "there is no way that is going to fit!" They looked like a size 12, not a 22. But, there is amazing stretch to this high-quality fabric. These bike shorts help firm up and camoflage my flabby thighs. They are really cute with the A-line top I bought. I bought these for hot tubbing, and casual swimming, so I don't know how they would be for water aerobics or more strenuous swimming.

I would buy this product again and againwater exercise
I had purchased a similar swim short and was pleased with how it fit and performed in the water; it did not ride up. I chose this style because it was called "Xtra Life," so I thought it might last longer than ones not called this. I ordered 2 sized bigger than I normally wear because of reviews I had read. The 2 sizes larger fit very well.
Best Answer:No, in fact it is rather thin. I use it at least once a week in a chlorinated pool. So far so good. I've had it for about two months. We shall see how long it lasts. But if you're expecting a lining, it's not there.
