Sizes 8-16 fit up to a C/D cup; sizes 18-34 fit up to a D/DD cup
Swimsuit fits true to size and perfect for women with long torsos
82% Nylon / 18% Spandex
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.
Women with longer torsos often find it difficult to find a proper fit and style that flatters the figure while staying comfortable and classy. The Longitude® brand was made to fit that need, and evolved out of the well renowned Robby Len® swimsuit brand. Longitude® swimsuits use basic bodies such as one piece suits and skirted tankinis. The fresh, new designs have an air of sophistication, developed by using sleek, sharp, and classy solids & color blocks as well as big, colorful florals and tropical prints. Any woman with a longer torso will appreciate the fine attention to detail and contemporary styles of this brand.

Perfect!Just tried on this suit. I'm 6' tall and was quite worried that, one more time, a suit ordered online would not be long enough. This is exactly right with no pull at the shoulders and doesn't ride up in the bum at all. A very comfortable suit all around. As a D-cup, finding a suit long enough and large enough up top has seemed impossible...until today. The price was so reasonably, I ordered another different suit and it fits just as well. I followed the sizing instructions exactly and the suit is a larger size than anything else I own, but who cares? The suits fit! I'll write more once I give it a pool and sun test.

VERY FLATTERING!When this swimsuit arrived at home and I tried it on, I have to admit I was stunned. I loved the colors and I loved the style, but of course, I wondered how I would look in it. To say the least I think it looks fantastic and I am very pleased. I am soooo happy I ordered this one. Could not be happier!

Love the color and fitLove this suit, fits like a dream!
Love this website, great prices and super fast shipping.
Great customer service.
My all-time favorite suit was a Longitude. It took me years to wear it entirely out, and it flattered me more than any suit since. Having really checked the sizing info, I think that the fit is the big issue. These suits are built like me. Other suits are small up top and big at the hip.
I really liked the bright colors in this swim suit and I have two tankini tops but the bottom is too big. I have lost 38 lbs. and I go to water aerobics 3 times a week I thought I would get a new bottom to go with them at a much smaller size. Also I have never seen the chlorine resistant swimwear.
I've had several Longitude side shirred surplice swimsuits. They are a perfect fit for me. They hold up very well. I do water aerobics 3 to 5 times a week and keep a rotatation of 3 suits going all year long. I also go to the beach in the summer to swim. I rinse my swim suits out in clean water after every wearing and dry on a hanger in the shower. They never fade and I always get compliments on them.
I do not have a long torso...Would this bathing suit still fit me?...I am 5'5" and weigh 184...

Best Answer:The Longitude swimsuits are the only suits that will cover my torso which is long and is exacerbated by a large bustline. I fear that the length would be a bit too long for you. If you really like the suit order and return it if it does not fit you properly. Ordering in a size smaller than normal might solve the size issue as well. They work well with you on returns.
