  • 8/1/2015 Perfect for me, maybe for you

    5 Review stars By Matt

    A great $20 racer, more modest than a Speedo Solar (and less pricey) but has legs wide enough for me. Performance so far is great: comfortable, stays in place, isn't too clingly or draggy. Several size 38 suits I've tried are cut tighter in the thighs, this one seems better proportioned -- but then, everybody's different (so maybe you and your little chicken legs won't like it!). Could fit very differently in smaller sizes for all I know. The Xtra Life Lycra should last a good while. Not the sleekest fit, but that's fine by me. I liked it so much I bought 3 more to rotate through.

  • 8/8/2019 Like this suit!! Shipping slow!!

    5 Review stars By VicRunrSwimr

    Lap swim 3 times a week. Nice sleek looking and comfortable. Covers just enough. I'm 145 lbs 5'8" and size 32 fits perfect. Shipping was very very slow , took 10 days to get in the mail. It got lost in shipping..

  • 2/16/2017 Great suit, great fit

    4 Review stars By Beach Bum

    This is a great suit. It's comfortable and true to size. The material is thin and breathable for quick drying after a swim. Doesn't sag anywhere after washing.I enjoy wearing these suits as they are great for sunning and swimming laps without bunching up on your legs. I love this suit and I have them in all colors. My favorite are the red and the black solids. I only wish Dolfin would come up with other solid colors for summer to highlight a tan. A bright orange solid or a neon green or deep yellow would be nice.

  • 7/19/2015 First Speedo since a kid

    4 Review stars By J-bone

    Well, I wouldn't recommend hitting the beach in this thing unless you've gotten action recently because the tension from the tight fit can produce a physical response that isn't considered socially appropriate on a public beach. That aside, I like the cut, the price was right, and...damn I look good in this thing!

  • 2/11/2015 good product, color brighter than expected

    4 Review stars By Nate

    Great brief for the money. Feels like it will last. The Burgundy/Maroon color is brighter (redder) than I anticipated, but overall it's fine. The size is smallish so i'm glad i didn't order a size down.

  • 1/8/2021 Good but used to be much better

    3 Review stars By ZY

    I used to get these suits all the time since they're really comfortable. Good fabric, and the fit is good if you go one size down. They do wear out quickly, but they're still worth the price considering how comfortable they are. However, the material and seams are different now, and it's even less durable. I had one that started ripping around the waist stitching in less than a week. Understandable that things like that happen from time to time, but it does seem to be because of the change in fabric and seams/stitching.

  • 7/25/2020 Piling in the first month

    1 Review stars By peter h.

    This is the first time one of these suits did not last for a year. It started piling in first month and logo is even coming off. It’s already unwearable even with a 3 month pandemic break.

  • 5/8/2019 Great, simple training suit

    5 Review stars By aquaphile

    I love the Dolfin Xtra Life Lycra briefs for their simplicity and comfort. Old school swim briefs that fit well and feel good in the water. I'm 5'10/155 and the 30 fits perfectly. I swim anywhere from 13km to 30km a week, and a pair will hold up pretty well for about 4 months.

  • 2/10/2017 Great Suit

    4 Review stars By Light House Beach Lover

    Dolfin is one of the best brief swimsuits out there. The fit in the waist and the leg areas are perfect. Other brands of briefs sometimes create the leg area too small. This suit holds up well in the ocean and pool. Dries quickly when sunning oneself at the shore. Great fabric; nice and thin so it does not sag when wet. I received very positive comments about this design and color suit among our beach friends. I have all the solid colors they make. I only wish they made the colors in a solid orange and a solid yellow or neon green. I look forward to wearing them on vacation and at the beach.

  • 7/25/2016 Great training brief

    5 Review stars By Aquaphile

    I really like the fit and feel of this brief. I'm 5'10" and 155 and the 30 fits perfectly. I'll have to report back on how it holds up to 12,000+ yards/week. I wish it had the back seam like the Dolfin Team Racers.

  • 5/15/2016 Good cut, too stretchy

    3 Review stars By Colorado swimmer

    First, I prefer the cut of this suit in that the sides aren't as narrow as other brands. This fabric is a bit too stretchy for my taste, however. It starts out just fine but after a few thousand yards, it starts feeling loose in my opinion.

    Also, i purchased the color Maroon. The color is brighter than expected - much more like a typical "red". Not a big deal, really, but notable

    Seems like a quality suit, just not my style. Sent back.

  • 10/18/2015 Good quality, fits real tight.

    3 Review stars By C.W.

    Must say it's a great deal for its low price. Good quality Lycra fabric, simple and plain design and look.
    However, not much space in front, and it fits really tight. Not to the point of being uncomfortable, the fabric extends a lot. But it does feel like one or two size smaller, being stretched to meet your own size.
    This can be good, for activities such as Waterpolo or diving.
    I did send my pair back and will purchase one size up.
