Women's AquaFitness Butterfly Scoop One Piece Swimsuit
Not perfect, but pretty good
I have generally avoided one-piece swimsuits but hoped that this one would get around my long torso and small bottom. It's a bit big around the bottom and a fraction small at the bust (and I don't have a big bust), but gives me the length I need, and the legs are not cut too high. The high front doesn't flatter me, and I will be looking for one with a halter neck, which suits me better, but in the meantime this will do for lap swimming. I have not used it yet, so can't comment on how well it resists chlorine.

This suit doesn't fit right.
Love the color, love the style. I ordered the d cup, since thats my cup size, but it had waaay too much space.

Nice for laps. Comfortable fit and good support.
I wanted a suit comfortable for swimming laps in. I think this suit is a good choice. Good value for the price.
May fit a tad small but for the most part this fits well and true to size. I ordered the other color when I found out how much I liked it, as I swim a lot and needed more swim suits. I wanted a suit that was comfortable but did give good support. I do suggest you get the D cup size if needed if you do wear a D sized bra, as I do.

I have previously purchased the Butterfly Swimsuit, size 12 on two occasions and they fitted me very well. Although I needed help to untwist the straps, I was willing to put up with that and both suits stood up well through several months of indoor swimming at the Y. This suit, same size was very tight through the chest. Is it the compression bra? Also, I have to be a contortionist to get the straps over my shoulders. It has to go back. LE why is your sizing not consistent?

I couldn't get in
Fabric seemed very nice but the straps cross so tightly that there was no way I could get into the suit. Ordered my usual size, 16L.

great suit but not even close to size
I am a lap swimmer, and loved the look of this suit and the cross-strap back--best of all, it comes in cup sizes, which is the hardest thing to find, suits that are bra-sized but actually good for swimming. When I got it, I really liked the style and the fabric was great quality, BUT. . .
Unfortunately, this suit was so small I could barely get it on, and there was no possible way it could fit a DDD chest! Once I did struggle into it, my chest was flattened out like it had been duct-taped.
I have several other suits, all in size 20W; all fit well and one is even a little big in the bottom. I looked at the LE sizing chart and felt that a 20 would be my size in this suit also. However, the fit was so far off that I would have thought it was mis-marked, except that the sewn-in tag inside the suit also claimed it was a 20DDD.
I have returned it; briefly considered reordering the same size just in case of mislabeling, but decided it was not worth it. And ordering a bigger size was not an option, because the DDD cup size would have to be more like a DDDDDDDDD to even come close to fitting my bust.

Terrible lap suit
The straps roll into tight tubes, then move whenever one moves one's arms. As I was planning to use this suit to swim laps, this is very irritating. Otherwise it fits nicely, fine for trips to the pool with kids. I didn't realize this problem till I swam in it, so I guess it's mine now.

Good Suit, Runs Small in Length
Good swimsuit. The cut is designed for active swimwear. The fabric is holding up well without noticeable deterioration. I have a short torso and have found the length of the suit to be a bit snug. If you have an average or long torso, definitely order the long. Overall, this suit is a good choice for lap swimming and water aerobics.

1st.-the opening for a prosthesis is about the size of a silver do;;ar-my prosthesis is MUCH bigger than that. 2nd.it was difficult to even pull up over my chest.Other suits I have gotten from Lands End have been much better quallity. I have found products ordered the last couple years are not near the qualit they were even 5 yrs. ago.I was very disappointed in the swim suit.

Order next size up for correct length
It's probably a little premature for a review, since I haven't had this suit in the water yet, but I like the look and fit very much. I originally ordered a size smaller, but the suit felt too short. The next size up is much more comfortable. I'm a former lap swimmer - have been out of the water due to health issues which are now resolved - so hope the suit will inspire me to jump back in!
