This is my favorite suit. I need to get more because I love this one so much that I never want to wear my other suits. It's snug without being tight, feels secure so I never have to adjust it, and the straps are wide enough that they do not dig into my shoulders. I agree that they run small; I am a small size 6 (sometimes a 4), and wear size 36 in this suit.

I love the color of this suit! It's very flattering and slimming. I would go up one size from what you normally wear otherwise it might be a little snug.

Looks exactly like this picture. Fits very snug, I ordered one size bigger. Some may want to go two sizes bigger. But this is a competition suit, so it should fit this way. Delivery is very quick. I ordered from three companies, online, the same day. Zappos was first to show up! Great service!

I ordered too small! But will exchange for next size up. It's not 5 stars because of ordering wrong size.

It took me a few tries to find the right size even when I ordered a size up as other reviews suggested. I had to go up 2 sizes. I am 5'5 145 pounds and wear a 36C bra. I had to order a size 40 to get the right fit. Thought these details of what fit me might be helpful for others.

This suit runs true to size and seems to be good quality. The let openings are high. I do water aerobics twice a week in a chlorine pool. Hope it lasts a long time. I do wash it out and hang it to dry every time I wear it.

Smooth flattering fit. I'm pear shaped and this suit works well to minimize my top half and draw attention to my curves. I like the snug fit.

Finally, a good performance swimsuit that fits my curvy body! The leg has a flatteringly high cut and the top has enough coverage to accommodate my 30F bust.

I weigh 150 at 5'7" - reading the other review with height and weight helped me order size 40 I have a long torso & require some length to accommodate. This suit is great. I especially love the crotch width so I don't need to shave so much.

I've read a good part of the reviews and they've been very helpful. I sized up to a 38 for my 5'8 140lbs frame. I purchased it specifically for my swimming needs, this is not a suit to sit around the pool. I mean it does look absolutely great, but that is a bonus. It was a great choice, it stays in place as I wanted while doing more powerful strokes, it's compressing etc. Great match for me!

NOT TOO TIGHT. Flattering on everyone. This suit arrived overnight with no shipping fee. It fits like a glove, as a racer is supposed to fit. I read a lot of reviews that say the suit runs small or advise the consumer to size up for comfort, but as a veteran swimmer, I have to say the suit is true to size, and very flattering to all body types. My 14 year old daughter looked good in the suit, the 60 something woman that swam to Miami from Cuba looked good in the suit, and I look good in the suit at 51. You won't be disappointed if you remember that it will give a little with wear.

This is the second one I own. I like the style and it fits very well. It is durable. I swim six days a week and the last swim suit I had lasted for approximately 9-10 months even though the color did fade from the chlorine in the pool.

I love this swimsuit. I've worn it several times already. I did order up a size and the fit was great that way. This type of suit is a little hard to get on and off, but I love the freedom it gives me when I swim or do water aerobics.

Great suit - I do a lot of lap swimming and this the second one of these suits I've bought. They last a long time! Kind of snug so you might want to buy one size larger than your norm.

This suit was exactly as shown- fit was perfect - albeit somewhat snug, that is what is shown. I think it true to size- I ordered a medium. I was very satisfied with the suit-- now I'm on the vacation I bought it for and wouldn't you know -- unseasonably cool!

This suit was the perfect fit for me. I went up one size based on other reviews, and was really pleased with how nice it fits. Nice quality fabric and the design of the straps is very comfortable. I am getting a second one, as it is a great length on my short torso and is very flattering.

I like this swim suit very well. I ordered a size larger than normal and it fits just right - which is very tight. I really like the design swirl. I wear it for Aqua Fit class and am happy that the shoulder straps stay in place. I would recommend the suit.

So far, this bathing suit has been great. It's very flattering (for an athletic suit) and holds its shape nicely after drying. My only suggestion is that you may want to buy a size larger than usual-- I've worn it a few times and it still feels very snug and leaves marks on my shoulders.

This is the most flattering competitive suit I've ever owned, and I love it. It's comfortable, it doesn't bunch up, and the fit is great. I do sometimes get a swoosh of water between my breasts, but that will happen in just about anything but a wetsuit. I hardly notice it's there - just keeps everything nicely tucked out of the way. Please get more in stock so I can stock up!

Gorgeous swimsuit -- great color, fabric, design, and very slimming too! I do agree with some of the previous reviewers in that this swimsuit is very tight but that's typical of all TYR swimsuits since it's made as a competition suit but very few of us wear them as such. I would recommend ordering one size up for an easier fit but it will likely still be snug because that's the design. I have several TYR swimsuits but this one fit a little differently in that the crotch was a little too wide and the extra material in the groin area was not flattering or comfortable. I was surprised other reviewers hadn't mentioned this but this suit is definitely about a half inch wider in the crotch than my other TYR suits. Perhaps my other suits have a higher leg design which may make a difference so I returned this suit and ordered a different style. TYR swimsuits are a fabulous product and hold up incredibly well after years of use. I still give this suit 4 stars overall and recommend it if it fits your body type.
