  • 3/2/2015 Love the suit

    rating star By Paula

    I really like the suit, so much in fact this is the second one I have purchased. The cut is really flattering and I like the material. The only reason not a 5 is that it fits a bit small. But the adjustable straps help with that. I cured the suit in vinegar as instructed and rinse it in chlorine neutralizer and water after each swim and it hasn't faded at all over the last several months. My other suits have all pretty much worn out due to the chlorine of the pool, so I needed another suit. It works fantastic for aqua zumba and water aerobics because the skirt is long enough to conceal, but not so long that it gets in the way. Overall very pleased

  • 9/18/2013 Perfect suit for swimming and aquatics

    rating star By Dunesbury

    Ideal for comfort, efficient workouts, neat appearance and remarkable resiliency to chlorinated water.  Keeps it size, appearance and comfort no matter how long it's used.  More flattering to older, more rounded figures while still giving sleek performance in the water.  Extraordinary! It was recommended by a very knowledgeable and pleasant customer service rep when I asked for a new style in chlorine-resistant swimsuits, since I already had one of each of the previous catalog offerings. is a wonderful online shopping resource.  Could not be equalled in a retail store.

  • 3/6/2012 Great suit - once you figure out the size

    rating star By sonja t.

    I was glad that I read the reviews that said this suit runs small.  I normally wear a 24 and ordered this suit in a 30... and it fits well.  If you have a large bottom order BIG.  This suit offers great coverage and durability.  I use it to swim laps and do water aerobics in.  It's flattering.  I'm never comfortable in a bathing suit because of my waist, but I don't feel self conscious in this suit.  I can walk around the pool and know that my trouble spots are covered.  The best part is that there's not a ton of "extra fabric" floating around me when I'm in the pool.

    rating star By Mia K.

    This is a great swim dress. It provides good breast support and comfort. It was true to size and definitely the most useful swimwear that I have for looking good and actually swimming without fear of wardrobe malfunction. You will love it.

  • 7/7/2015 Suit matches description very well

    rating star By C Hamilton

    I was glad I read comments about suit running small.  I ordered two sizes bigger than normal and fit is good.  Having the buttons on the straps help make them fit well for aerobic swimming.  It is a little big in the bottom but fine for its purpose.  Very pleased with suits coverage of problem areas.

  • 2/11/2015 Great Suit

    rating star By Linda

    I just received this suit last week but I really like it. Like many other reviews have said the material is heavier and not really stretchy like the nylon suits. But the weight feels good in the water.  The only complaint that I would have is that the built in bra cups are large for me.  I am larger on the bottom than the top. I am a short 5' 1" and 240 lbs. I ordered a size 28.The suit fits me well around the hips. The leg openings are just right and it feels good but the built in bra cups are large for me as I am a small D cup. However the coverage is good enough around the chest and under the arms that this doesn't seem to really be a problem. Also I could alter the bra cups a bit, I have done that before. Overall I think the suit is a good one, it rinses and dries very easily and quickly. I ordered the sky blue and it is a beautiful color.

    rating star By sisjean

    I swim almost every morning and so, need a suit that will last awhile.  I am very happy with this suit's fit--with 1 minor little thing-----the leg holes are a bit to tight---thinking they will expand as suit gets older.  Other than that 1 very minor thing--I will be ordering this suit again.--Oh--I had thought about getting a size bigger but the suit fits so well--I will be ordering the same size again.

  • 7/5/2009 Nice, but...

    rating star By DAM

    Excellent quality but I had to return this suit. I tried my standard size and the next two larger sizes but none of them fit right. My standard size was a bit small and way too short, I'm 5'5", the soft cups were at my rib cage. The fabric doesn't have the typical stretch of a swim suit so I hoped the larger sizes would solve the problem but by the time I got the suit to feel comfortable the soft cups were way too big. So, if you are on the short side with a med to large chest you should be ok.

  • 4/14/2009 update

    rating star By jackie

    I reviewed this already but wanted to update. This is a fantastic swimsuite. I am 330 lbs and 5'4" and busty. What I really like about this suite is that its polyerster and not a strechy spandex. This makes a huge difference. It fits well and does not strech when you dry it. I swim for 1 hour five days a week and I only have this one suite. Its held up very well and I've had it a month. I recomend this product.
