4.0 out of 5 stars Decent Suit at a Great Price, September 2, 2008
This review is from: Speedo Women's Race Learn to Swim Super Pro Swimsuit (Apparel)
I've read a lot of reviews about this product being too small for its size. It's not. It's consistent with the sizing for all of the other Speedo competition/race suits I own. When trying to determine a size for your swimsuit, I would recommend using your bra size as a baseline. If you're an A cup or on the smaller end of a B cup, you'll probably be fine with your standard size. If you're larger than that, you'll need to adjust upwards accordingly - I'd venture to say a size per cup. The fit is on the tighter side but you don't want a swimsuit to fit loosely, since water drag isn't fun when you're swimming! My one complaint with the fit is that there's a seam on the back that sometimes tends to ride up into a slight wedgie - it doesn't happen while I'm swimming but it does when I walk around.

The material isn't as smooth feeling as other Speedo swimsuits, but it's durable enough. I swim three times a week in a chlorinated gym pool, rinse my swimsuit out with clean (non-chlorinated) water after every swim, and wash it once a week in Woollite. It's held up well for two months now with no problems. There comes a point in every swimsuit's life where it becomes threadbare due to chlorine damage, so being able to find a decent swimsuit for such a cheap price is a lifesaver.
