I''m really happy with this suit. It fits much better than my other polyester suit, the Ocean Solid Clasp Back -- it doesn''t chafe at all, and it fits pretty well in my chest and butt area (I''m not super large in those spots so most suits tend to be roomy.)
I ordered a 22W, which is the same size as I''ve worn in previous suits (1 size larger than my pant size of 20) but now I believe that this suit runs pretty true to pant size... it still fits fine but I suspect I could stand to go down one size to a 20W.
The styling is so much more attractive than most polyester fitness suits, and I also like the graphite color -- I appreciate having an alternative to the utilitarian black / navy / blue colors of most polyester suits that are available in my size range. I was worried it would be too silvery/shiny but it isn''t. It looks almost black when it''s wet.
I didn''t know if I would have issues with the straps slipping because I have narrow shoulders, but so far, so good!
The only annoyance: the bra area feels a little bouncy and revealing. I do some vigorous water aerobics and at times I wish it was a little more secure-feeling in that area. I''m only a smallish C-cup so larger-busted women who fill up the cups better might feel more snug & secure, but maybe not. I''m only in my early 30s so older women might have even more problems with bouncing.
Also, I really wish the suit came in long torso sizes! I''m only 5''6", but I still notice the suit riding up at times during exercise. I wish I could get this same style but with a little extra length.
