Perhaps using a enzyme based cleaner would help remove. Im thinking that the browning may be organic in nature from the water. Just a educated guess thou. Test the cleaner first for colorfastness. As long as it doesnt effect the color you should be able to soak the whole thing in it and let sit for 10-15 mins then launder in cool water rinse. These type products can be found at pet stores or your local home improvement store.

Place swim suit in a bucket or pan with water & Biz powdered enzyme detergent (sold in laundry product aisles). Let set. The longer you give the enzymes to digest the organic stains the better.
