Update -I have 3 of these. The original - bought in March 2013 - just now bit the dust. First the thread in the seams bleached white. Oh well. About 6 months ago, the lining bleached out. Oh well. In March, the lining just fell apart... oh well. I just ripped it out and kept swimming. But last Friday - after over 300 hours in chlorinated water, the fabric began to just shred. Now THAT'S what you call ENDURANCE! I am buying another today........This is a fabulous suit for a short, stout, sort of flat-chested lady who loves to swim - just like me! I JUST LOVE this suit - wear it DAILY for an hour's swim in a chlorinated pool and it is great- fits great; is flattering; easy care; holds up to the chlorine- I would buy a lot of these and wear them all my life. BUT... and this is a HUGE "but".... the suit I love was made in a country close by to the south. The second one I bought (from Amazon) was made in a country at the tip of a large hot continent far far away, where apparently there is NO quality control! It is like a too-small spanx garment on the bottom (think "tourniquet") and too large and floppy on the top. One strap is longer than the other and they are not adjustable. The worst? There are these soft little liner things in the bosom of the suit. In the good one, there's a place where you can put your fingers inside and rearrange them if necessary - but on the BAD suit, these openings are sewn shut. When you swim, these liners bunch up in weird shapes and stick out oddly on your chest - and there is nothing you can do about it! The lady at Speedo (yes, of course I called) was SO sympathetic, but her advice was- just return it right away if it was made in that "other" place. Thinking these suits would be identical just because they were the same style, I wore the bad suit several times and so cannot return it. I have learned my lesson though. I WILL buy more of these- but beware! They are like the proverbial little girl with a curl in the middle of her forehead- "when they are good, they are very very good- and when they are bad, they are HORRID!"

I ordered this size when I weight 250lbs. I have been trying to lose weight. The middle and the suit conform to your body as you lose and gain weight. I now weigh 220 and it still fits good.

I am about 5'4", 110-115 lbs. I didn't know if I would be a 6 or an 8 and if I wanted the teal or navy. So I bought one of each size in either color. First off, the teal has more green in it, making it more of a turquoise than blue teal shown in the picture (the flat blue/green it actually is is not a color I am fond of, especially since there is so much of it on the backside without any cute pattern or design).
Both fit pretty well. The 6 was a little tighter, which is good for swimming, but just wearing it, felt like it was pulling my shoulders down and making my back hunch over. Also, the material kept sliding up my backside. The 8 was a little looser and the strap slid if I moved my shoulders, but it wasn't making me a hunch back. So it was a tough decision.
Also, a major deciding factor was the technicality of the physical composition. Both were labeled as "endurance plus", but only the size 8 had it written on the hip. The lining of size 8 was different, the removable cups of the 8 were not as thick (which made for an awkward compression on the boobs where the ruching seams are), and the entire hydro bra in general was completely different between the 2 sizes. Now, I don't know if this was a difference in the size, color, or simply the time each was made. I'm wondering if one was made before the other and between that time, they changed the pattern slightly.
So I don't know if this is helpful, but I think it can explain why some people like this product, and others don't. I personally love it. It is well made, great coverage, but I don't feel like I'm wearing a granny suit. I love the pattern. Kinda wish the backside was a bit more exciting, but whatever. It is really comfortable and looks great on. I highly recommend it if you are willing to spend the money. It's quality and will last a long time.

LOVE IT! It is very comfy and flattering! I am a size 12, kinda on the heavy side and this suit makes me feel comfortable in front of people. Plus its chlorine resistant so it should last a long time witch is great cause I am a life guard and swim instructor.

Beautiful Fit. The design is perfect for larger women. The suit stays put, I do not need to readjust it every time I step out of the pool.

I love this suit. It is snug, but in a way that you would expect a Speedo to be. I really needed a sturdy suit for lap swimming but I'm voluptuous and most workout suits don't offer a lot of support. This one is the exception. It has as much support as you could expect from a suit without underwire. It's also cute and flattering. The straps are very wide set, which helps to make it flattering but I worried they would slip off when I swam. So far, so good. Everything stays in place in my lap swimming sessions. However, if you have very narrow shoulders it might not work for you.

I like the suit quite well. It works great for water aerobics. I would like it a bit looser, but I think going up a size would loosen the straps too much. It looks really good on!!!
p.s. I normally wear a size 8 and I ordered a 10.

.The straps are too long and the suit compresses the breasts in a most unattractive way. The rushing somehow adds to the belly. I thought it was just me and tried to give it away...twice. My friends were happy to take it off my hands, until they tried it on. I couldn't even give it away.

I am 5 ft 4 1/2 in. 97 lbs and usually wear a size 2 or 4. The size six is very tight, I ordered three before I found one that I could even get into. Very inconsistent sizing.

Tip for washing swimwear: after each swim, put it in washing machine, using ' rinse and spin' cycle. My swimsuit lasts for 2 years , swimming 4 times a week. I used to go thru 2 swimsuits/year when I just hang it out to dry.
