Women's AquaFitness FlutterKick V-neck One piece Swimsuit
Great Bathing Suit For Swimming Laps!
I just tried this AquaFitness suit on today and it was fantastic! So comfortable for swimming laps in my pool and everything stayed perfectly in place. Love the coverage and support with no show-through! Although I rated this suit true to size it did fit a touch larger than my regular size but it's very slimming and I don't want a suit that's too tight for my pool workout anyway. I would highly recommend this suit for anyone involved in water sports or aqua fitness. Great LE quality!

This is perfect for water aerobics
The extra long gives me just the room I need for water aerobics
The sleek look of the suit is perfect for exercise.

Great for full-figures
I'm typically a smaller, plus-size swimwear person. I opted for a 16 long torso, regular size to get the tighter fit I need for swimming laps at the club. At first, I thought it would be too long, but once the straps were in place, perfect fit. I don't care for the soft, molded cups, but it's needed for this suit. I would have prefered a shelf bra, but whatever. Just the ability to have crossover backstraps for a fuller-figure person is a great accomplishment - thanks Lands End, for another quality product.

sizing inconsistency s frustrating
I ordered this suit in size 8 Long based on my experience with a suit I purchased last year in a similar style, but size10 long. Last years suit proved to be a bit loose in every direction but i kept it because it was a good price on sale and the smaller size was not available. I will be returning this suit (the 8 long) because it is too short, and rides up, not a good look on my 64 year old body. FYI, my weight has not changed since last year. The fabric didn't seem as sturdy as my old suit, but I did love the colors and the style was good for water exercises. My advice: if you wear a size LONG, this suit will likely be too short for you

Great style, but needs some work in the chest area.
Of the 3 aqua fitness suits I tried, this one was the most flattering and comfortable. I got the blue/teal one and it looks really pretty on. It is true that is made for short torsos which I have, so it fits me great in that regard. My only complaint is about the bra styling, being a D/DD means that I need a little more support on top and there really is no bra, not even a basic shelf type. I hate the bra pads which give a certain non-stretchy stiffness, so the bathing suit does not fit my chest all that well on the other hand it is the only water fitness suit of three that worked with my very broad shoulders.

Nice, but not for serious swimming
I swim a couple of kilometers, and this suit, while it looks good in the steamroom, and nicely covers what I want covered, has considerable drag in the water. It's a loose-fitting size 6. When I bought size 6 long 10 years ago, the suits were snugger fitting.

Runs slightly short, but overall a great fit. I bought this suit in a size 18W to replace a 20W of another suit that was way too large in the bust (I'm thinking I could have fit my entire head in one of the underwire bra cups on the suit I returned). The color on the blue suit is rich and after several weeks of swimming in the Y's heavily chlorinated pool, it hasn't faded. It does, however, hold the chlorine smell, even after washing. It's a little short in the torso, but because it fits so well otherwise, I don't find myself tugging on it to make sure my lady parts are covered. The crossed straps on the back can be a pain to get into place on donning the suit, but once they are in place, the suit stays in place really well with minimal tugging. I'm sure once I lose about 5-10 more lbs., this won't be an issue at all. The fabric smooths out bumps nicely, and the cut is very complimentary.

I was hopeful, but it didn't work for me
I am looking for suits for water aerobics. I am a size 18w, and 5ft 3 tall, and a D cup. I like under-wire suits for the extra support. Because of a lot of the reviewers mentioned this one for water aerobics, I thought I'd give it a try, even though it didn't have under-wire. I purchased 4 different suits to try, and I tried this one on first because I though it looked the most hopeful. But, it was the at the bottom ranking because, as others have mentioned in the plus size it is too short-waisted, and the only real supportive aspect in the chest was because it flattened me out -- the chest was too small.

This swimsuit is very comfortable but the back straps twist up.
Maybe the back straps of this delightful swimsuit don't twist up on everyone, but they sure do on me! I will keep and wear the suit because it is so comfortable, particularly in the bust, but I hope over time that the straps will stretch. I miss the suit with straps on each shoulder and the clasp in the back, much easier to get into and out of. Please consider bringing it back.

Perfect Fit and Very Flattering
I ordered a dozen suits, and this one is a stand-out for fit and flattery. The v-neck is a perfect neckline for someone like me who is well-endowed, and the cross back helps keep the back jiggles under control. I'm going to order another one in a different color...if I don't, they won't have it next year and I'll be back to ordering a dozen suits again just to find one that fits.
