Good suit, slimming,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Speedo Women's Race Quantum Splice Super Pro Swimsuit (Apparel)
I am 5.5', 125 lbs, 34B/28/38, wear a size 6 in clothing and usually wear a size 8 in swimsuits. After reading the reviews here that this suit has a tighter fit, decided to try size 10/36 and 12/38 at a local store and thought both were comfortable but the 12/38 was a bit loose around the stomach. So, decided to buy 10/36 and I'm happy with this size (I do laps for around 2 hrs at a local gym). It has a snug fit and I definitely look slim in it .... no sagging or bunching anywhere.
I think this a good suit for me, doesn't hold much water too. I feel I'm swimmimg much better in this suit compared to my older one. The older one sagged and I felt a drag when I swam in it. This suit doesn't have a padded bra ( I think someone had posted this question) but it has a double lining, so the coverage is adequate and it holds everything well. I also like that one can choose from different colors. I would buy again and try a different color next time.
UPDATE: After 3 months of usage, the suit has become quite loose, so I'm going to order another, one size down ie., 8/34. I have lost a little weight, so I don't know if the suit has become loose because of that or it's due to usage (I have used it almost daily at the pool). Also, the black color has faded and turned silver. I still love the suit, so I'm going to order another in a different color :)
UPDATE: Got size 8/34, weight now is 122 lbs. It was a little difficult to get it on at first but once I did, it fits perfectly and no discomfort while swimming.
