Dolfin Women's Aquashape Conservative Lap Suit
Not great for bigger ladies
I bought this suit to swim laps in. I was happy with how the front looked (especially the leg coverage), but not with how the back looked and felt. The racerback really emphasizes back fat - the suit kind of squishes it all out of the opening in the back of the suit. And it just felt uncomfortable. If you're at all worried about back fat, then this suit is not for you.

Not Chlorine Resistant
I loved the fit of the suit for swimming laps (cool water), and also doing water aerobics (in a warm water pool). However, after one wearing, my navy blue is now lavender, and is very streaked. I am very unhappy with this. Otherwise, I loved the fit, and the freedom of movement it gives in the pool. I just wish the color had stayed. It was a cheaper end product, but I had hoped it would last longer than one swim.

OK for swim exercise class
I ordered two of these suits in different colors but kept only one. They were both size 22, but fit entirely differently. I have a long torso and small bust for the size of my hips and it is difficult to find a chlorine resistant suit to fit me. The bust of the one I returned was way too big. You may need to try on more than one of these suits to find one that fits you. The back shows a lot more skin than I like, and I find the "conservative" legs come down too far and are a bit uncomfortable. My arms seem to rub against the front of the armhole when I'm working out in the pool. I can't comment on how long the suit lasts, as I have worn it only twice. A warning to those who may be debating buying the "moderate" version of this suit: the back is scooped WAY low...I felt that I would have "plumbers butt" if I wore it for pool exercise!

Great bathing sit!
But it did not fit properly. I will have to go to the store to try others on.

I would buy this product again
I exercise a couple of times a week in an Aqua Motion thermal pool class. Suit nice color, great movement for exercising. The racetrack design is a little difficult getting on and off but I like the tight fit.

I would buy this product again.
I use this product 3 days a week in my aqua aerobics class. This suit fits well, and is very comfortable.

Conservative at bottom, not at top!
I normally wear an 18 (or 16 W), but this suit runs a little small or just right (not sure if going up one size would alleviate the bust issue) as it fits well everywhere else. If you're busty, be prepared to show a little up top (& side). The bottom is quite conservative - almost to the point that they look like semi-hipsters. Overall fit was okay. Good for doing laps in the pool!

For workout. True to size. Ample coverage without riding up.

Functional and Attractive
I got this is royal blue. It looks and fits excellent. Did not ride up . Not very happy with the polyester feeling when dry, but perfect in the water. Not sure about ruggedness.
