Swimsuit fits true to size
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.

Good for a whileOrdered on 12/13, arrived a week later. Used 4-6 times a week for 30 minutes each time in a swimming pool. By February it had lost its elasticity and is baggy which makes for zero bust support since the bottom elastic on the bra ends at the sides and doesn't go all the way around. I ended up cutting the bra out and bought a sports bra to use with it. It does fade from the chlorine but not near as quickly as a regular suit and when it does fade it fades evenly and isn't splotchy. Overall, better than a non-chlorine resistant suit, but didn't last as long as I expected

LOVE LOVE LOVEOh my goodness!! I LOVE this suit! I am a tall, apple shaped girl and I have the HARDEST time finding one-pieces that are long enough AND are flattering and stylish. I do not like tankinis so I am always on the lookout for a cute, plus size one-piece. I will say this though. I am 5'10" and this suit is the perfect length for me. I could see how this suit may be too long in the torso for average height and petite gals, but my fellow tall girls, who have a hard time finding cute one-pieces long enough....GET THIS SUIT!!!

Good deal, good fitI was initially skeptical about buying a swimsuit online but the suits seemed like a good deal and the site provided a lot of good info about getting the right fit. The prices were great and there were so many styles to choose from. It can be difficult getting the bigger sizes without sacrificing style and comfort and finding lower prices. This site was so easy to use! I am very happy with my suit although I did find that the sizing ran a little smaller than I had expected. Great site, great suit, great prices!

Not enough support for DD CupLove the look of this top, but realistically to support DD breasts it should have an underwire, or make the straps shorter. The result is droopy breasts, and too much cleavage showing. Because I love the colour and the overall look I am keeping it.(Also it cost $20 shipping to Canada which I would not get back). I just used a barrett to hold the straps together in the back which solved the cleavage issue, and put a tuck in the side of the elastic band under the breasts to hold better.

A little long in the bodyI am 170cm tall and have a large bust and big tummy. This cossie gives great bust coverage and good support. However it was about 2 inches too long in the body. Because of the print I can get away with this as it is not too noticeable. Therefore I did not bother returning. Cossie is longer in the body than the same size Delta Burke even though the sizing guide had the Delta Burke as having a longer torso measurement. Fabric is great quality and print is lovely.

TOO HUGE BRA CUPSthis tank in 18W, which SAID it fit D/DD cup, arrived and would have fit more like a 40DDD! Otherwise, it was beautiful, constructed well. I so wish it would have fit. It would definately look nice on a very large-busted girl, as it seemed to have sturdy bra construction...just that I could have stuffed a medium-sized squirrel in each bra cup and STILL had ample room for myself. lol Only order this if your bust is disproportionately large for an 18W.

Chose wrong size??Use it my home pool, holiday resorts. It is stylish, colourful, well-made but disappointingly too large in hips and bust, the straps seems too long and offer no security or support. As an international buyer return and exchange is not economical for us and no offer can alleviate - I want another but won't go the extra to get it. The sizing I chose was 18W and I probably chose this to get DD cup, however, Longitude with same measures fits way better.

Very SatisfiedI've started swimming for exercise as recommended by my physical therapist. I needed a suit to fit in a way that everything would stay in place as I move in the water. This suit does that perfectly for me. I can move easily in the water. I like the 2 pieces and the ability to buy different sizes for the top and bottom. I feel very comfortable wearing this suit in or out of the water.I received the suit within a week of purchasing.
