Rated 5 out of 5 by swimmer777 Very comfortable for lap swimming
It's all about comfort - I lap swim and this suit works well for that.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Teach Average performance
I had been using a dive suit so my expectations may have been off, but the fabric is too giving. It's very stretchy and from the look of it, I thought it would have been a tighter weave, especially around the breast. There are no cups. I go to the natatorium several times a week and the chlorine quickly reduces the strength of garments.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Tina Looks and feels so good
I am a 63 year old female with full hips. This item is perfect for comfort and freedom of movement during water aerobic class. I suffer from RA so I love the way this suit wraps my thighs. The size is a true-to-fit, and may even run a little small for some. I usually wear a size 16W, I ordered the size 16 and was ready to hit the water as soon as I put it on. Fell in love with it immediately. Gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because I have had it less than 3 weeks. Have not used it at the beach, but I will try it since the fit around the thighs is so secure. This suit fits like a glove (feels so good), but is appropriate for any age, size or shape. My 35 year old, physically fit daughter has one for her lap swims. The fit is roomy enough so it does not limit range of motion (legs nor arms); no pulling between the thighs, under arms or on shoulders. In fact, I think it enhances performance. I only wish there was a little more "tummy control", but that may be my personal problem (eat less, move more). The suit (air) dries fast. I will order another one; wish Dick's had them in the store for quick purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Aging Competitive Swimmer / Former Lifeguard This product is made with great quality, durable and wears well.
I really love this product when I received it in the mail. I purchased this swim suit because I started to count calories, watch my weight and swim once again to help the process of loosing pounds and inches. Great quality, durable and wears well. I am 5'8' and currently weight 205 lbs. I purchase a size 20 and 22 not knowing what would really fit just going by the size chart. The size 22 was too large for my frame. The size 20 fit okay a bit loose. I thought I could use a smaller size like an 18. So, I went back on line and looked up the suit once again. I was disappointed because I was told the 18's were not available. When items are out of stock and situations like this occur I wish company?s would have a rain check or wait list to re-order that item. I returned the size 22, I purchase another size 20 and a size 16. I plan to swim all year around and I want to look age appropriate in a suit this coming from a 53 year old. I do not like to show off all my extra weight in skinny swim suits. My goal is to swim 2 miles per day ? 5 times a week. I am now swimming 1 mile and 1/4. Being a former swimmer competitor / lifeguard I would like see this manufacturer to make an additional style to criss-cross the back straps to stay on better when swimming. I am tall and the fit from between my legs to my shoulders when reaching is okay. If I had been heavier this reach might have been uncomfortable. Yesterday, it was 100 degrees in San Diego area and I put my suit to go to the gym with a white t-shirt over it...I wore it around the house ran some errands and then made it to the gym. Additional colors might be great also. If you ever come up with a size 18 being available please send me two. I will be happy to pay for them. Thanks for listening.

Rated 4 out of 5 by sweetsurfn Good buy
I bought this suit to start summer laps in the pool this summer. It is really good thick quality fabric and fits well/ snug on me. I wear a size 12 at most major stores- BR and all affiliates..so I ordered a 12 in this suite and it fits like a glove- i.e. no looseness whatsoever. If you find that this is too big in certain areas, you should probably get a smaller size. I wish the suite had longer or adjustable straps as I am really tall (6'3 female), but it was a great purchase.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Water beginner OK - I will not buy again
Looks great but does not fell good - the stitching on inside rubs making it uncomfortable sometimes

I saw this suit during the Olympics and was able to find it at Dick's Sporting Goods. A lovely woman named Rasha, took my order since it was not available in the store. It's a great suit and if it ever stops raining, I'm jumping in the pool and trying it out!

I'm just going on vacation. I am older but I hate the traditional little old lady swimware. This aquatard is perfect for me.

I ordered this suit one size larger, thinking it was going to be skin tight. There is no need for that. I would actually order one size smaller than usual. I wore it for a 2 1/4 mile swim, and had horrible chaffing under my arms. The suit really ballooned causing extra drag. I would not order this suit again.
