Women's Plus Size AquaFitness Butterfly Scoop One Piece Swimsuit with Tummy Control
These are great suits for water aerobics, they last for a very long time!
Due to the nature of the fabric, they run small compared to your regular sizing. I recommend going up a size. The quality is exceptional and the fabric does not denigrate with frequent pool use. It is also smooth on your skin which prevents irritation while swinging one's arm in water classes. I prefer the clip back versus the criss-cross back, comfort wise, however, they both work for water aerobics. I have had my first suit for going on two years now and it looks nearly like new.

Hard to get on
I bought this suit because I do pool aerobics 3 times a week year round. I had previously bought one of LE's chlorine resistant suits and it has lasted over a year. When I purchased that suit there were comments on having a hard time getting it on. There is a clasp in back that is impossible to do on yourself, but you can put it on without opening it and if fits great. Now this suit has no clasp, but getting the straps over your shoulders and untwisted by yourself is very difficult. The straps cross in back and put pressure on your shoulders/neck. Again the suit fits well although the first one did a better job of bust compression. Love LE suits and will continue to buy them.

The petite size is too small.
I wear a plus size. I ordered a petite size in one size bigger than I usually order. The sizing appears to run really small. It's hard to pull up because of the fabric in the front of the suit doesn't stretch enough. It's cut too short even for a petite. The quality of the style and stitching is certainly okay, but if you can't wear it...

Attractive and utilitarian
I am 5'6" 180lb. I wear a DD bra, but ordered the DDD because DD was not in stock. The suit was on sale, so I decided to give it a try. The DDD in this suit works for me. I use the suit almost exclusively for lap swimming in the pool. The design is comfortable and the fabric holds up well to chlorine. The white piping does not have a tight straight line, but puckers a little. This is not a problem for me.

Bra pocket opening is too small.
I have bought numerous Landsend Tugless Tank mastectomy swimsuits for my mom over the years, and she has LOVED them and had no complaints whatsoever. I bought this suit for Mom because it's fancier in design than the simple Tugless Tank suits, but she was very disappointed to tell me that the bra pocket openings are too small. Mom never had this problem with the Tugless Tanks.

I use this suit for shallow and deep-water aerobics. Fits snugly but comfortably. Good support, especially if the "girls" are on the larger side.

Would like to buy another, but not available!
Bought this suit for my daughter's swim club sessions, and she loves it. Would like to buy the black one too, but sizes not available. It stays in place during rigorous lifeguard training, the fabric is holding up well, and it hasn't stretched out. Please re-stock these suits, and perhaps add more of these 'aquafit' styles to your selection.

I love this suit but it is is more revealing than I would like it to be when it comes to my behind. I need a little more coverage for my behind..

Good for lap swimming
This is a good, athletic-looking suit. I am 5'10" and it is short but in the water it doesn't bug me. Dries quickly. It is hard to get into, but I am getting used to it. It definitely squashes my boobs down but am not wearing it to impress anyone! Just bought another one for back-up. Was having a hard time finding an athletic plus-sized suit and was happy to find this.

Good suit for water aerobics
The aqua fitness suits hold up to the chlorine and this style provides the support needed for water aerobics. It is a little hard to get off, since there isn't a clasp at the back of the neck, but that's a minor detail in the scheme of things. I find all the Lands' End suits run small, so I buy a size larger than I do for most of my other clothes which works consistently.
