So far, so good. . .
I swim 3 to 6 days a week at my local gym, and was having trouble finding a suit that held up to the chlorine long-term. I bought this to replace a very expensive suit from Land's End that only lasted me three months before it disintegrated. So far, I'm loving it. I have two of these (in green and red) and will be using them on an alternating basis to make them last longer. The fit is very comfortable. The max back style straps are great. Sometimes I find racerback style straps to be hard to get to lay flat, but these don't need to be adjusted more than once. The lightweight construction means it dries fast, and is easy to pack in a small space. I try to follow the care instructions to the letter, hoping to improve the life of the suit. After swimming, I rinse it very thoroughly in cold water, and on the way home I lay the suit flat on a towel in the trunk of my car away from light. By the time I get home and hang it up in my shower, it's usually mostly dry. So far, it's helping. I've had these suits for over a month now and there's no sign of loose elastic, discoloration, or disintegration. I would highly recommend this product. My only complaint is really picky. The suit is only available in my size in these two colors, and I would have chosen the purple or blue if it had come in my size.
