Women's Y-back Swimsuit
Swimming 4x/week since last season
The suit fits well, does not show any wear and tear yet and was surprisingly affordable. One drawback - which could be significant for some - is lack of shelf bra or any lining to hide nipples when its cold.

Runs small - red is SEE THROUGH!!
Ordered for my daughter for swim team. Based on her measurements, the lady at LE said she needed a 2 and the smallest size was a 4. When it came, she needed a 6... she now has the 6 and it fits great. The black and navy are just fine. The red was see through BEFORE it ever got wet and was quickly returned!! But it should be good for swim practice and was a great buy.

Great lap suit
This suit is well made and great for lap swimming. Another review noted it was hard to get into. I disagree. It goes on very well if you put the arms in elbow-first instead of hand-first. Fits snugly so you are confident it stays in place through all strokes and dives.

Love this suit, though would get a bigger size next time.
Bought this for water aerobics and it works very well for that, though a little difficult to maneuver into, being a little smaller than I usually wear. Not a suit for a full-bodied or large-busted woman.

The fit was great but wore it only for 3-4 months in the pool and it's already worn out because of the chlorine.

Good but . . .
Suit is heavier weight than expected, fits well. But great shoulder flexibility is a must if you ever need to take it off! Come on LE, who tested this, a Cirque de soleil acrobat?

Perfect for lap swimming
I just tried on this suit and it seems to be perfect for swimming laps. I am 5'7" and about 135 on a good day ;) I would not say this is a flattering suit and I woudn't wear it to the beach. I got it in red and I look a bit like a fireplug in it. But it does what it needs to do, which is stay on and be comfortable while swimming. I figure with goggles and a swimcap I'm not making much of a fashion statement anyway!

Great for my 12 year old!
My 12 year old daughter swims on a team, and practices regularly. She does not like suits with very thin shoulder straps. This suit is the perfect answer! I got a girls' 16 and a women's 4, and it turns out the 4 is smaller. She is wearing it now, and I am keeping the girls' 16 since she's still got plenty of growing to do!

First of all, I would like to say the delivery speed is really amazing. I live in Quebec, Canada. I placed my order around 11:50 pm Nov. 11, 2012, and I got my swimsuit at noon Nov. 14, 2012. I am very satisfied with their service.
I am 63-64 inches tall, B-36, W-32, H-38, 135lb. I ordered size 8, a little bit tight. The quality looks good, but I don't wear it in the pool, I can't comment on it now. The only pity is the suit without bra.

I needed a new bathing suit for lap swimming when my old one fell apart...in october. not exactly bathing suit season. I ordered 2 since I couldn't try it on in a store. thankfully the afordability allowed me to do this. I really expected to have to return the smaller one but i returned the larger one! Fits fairly well i'm very curvy and well endowed so i'm ALWAYS going to have to tug straps a litte. fits a little big in the butt but overall i'm very happy w/it. I have already recommended it to several friends that want to start swimming but don't want to spend a fortune on a suit
