This is an excellent quality suit that flatters the wearer. It provides good coverage with the double layer of fabric. What else do you need to swim laps? I can't yet comment on durability as I've only used it a few times.

Very well made, durable swim suit. If it had not been for the fact that I am a "DD", I would not have had to return it. This is a tank specially made for smaller chests.

I'm not a lap swimmer, just a fifties female who enjoys being active in the water and kayaking. I bought a TRY suit a few years ago. Initially I wondered if I would tear a ligament trying to get it on, but after a few wearings I loved it, just ordered another. As another reviewer commented, no need for underwire of shelf bra, no shifting cups to struggle with, does not ride up in the rear. This suit stays put. Nice material (unlike Speedo) and does not lose its shape. I'm 5'6, 129 lbs and 36B chest. I normally wear a size 6 or 8, ordered a 36 in this and it fits really well.

Great suit but I needed to size up. I ordered the 34, what I would wear according to the sizing and it was actually "okay" except that I'm a bit long waisted and I found the straps kind of dug into my shoulders more than what I would like. The 36 fits okay, not snug, is great in the water and so far, so good. I remember sizing up for a swim top from Tyr last year as well. But...I've always like the quality of Tyr suits.

Very nice suit. I am 5'6" 130 lbs 34b/32c cup long torso. I took a size 36. I liked the fit; however, I think I am opting for the TYR Reversible Dimondfit suit over this one. It is just more flattering on me, but I did like this suit.

I love this swimsuit! It is made of thick material unlike my previous Speedos. I am in the pool at least 2-3 a week. It has been holding up well. I also have not using the machine to wring it out. Towel dry only. TYR is my new favorite.

Well made, high quality, true to fit. I've worn this a few times to swim laps and it holds me in, (36DD) making me feel streamlined in the water and seems to hold it's shape well. The only thing I didn't count on is that being a 46 year old woman with a less than perfect bod, the back opening is not very flattering. When I turn around to see how it looks in the back, all I can focus on is that my back is squeezing out the opening! Inspiration to double my lap swimming workout I suppose. ;)

Brands I'd also recommend: I think I'd like to try a water polo suit next time... more back coverage!

Great suit! Comfortable and easy to wear. Fabric offers firm support without underwire or inner shelf bra, which is a rarity. Highly recommended, especially for those who are more active in the water.

This is a great suit if you are a lap swimmer. I wear a 38 since I am broad through the chest; some reviews said the suit ran small but I did not have any problems. I bought this second one to replace one I bought almost 6 months ago. I thought it would wear out soon because I swim 4 times a week in a chlorinated pool. It has not worn out at all. I do wet the suit down with fresh water before swimming but I have to say I never expected any suit to last as long as thing one has. It's a great product for a lap swimmer and totally worth the price since you don't have to buy a new one every 2 months like I was with my previous Speedo suits.

I am a size 14 with a large bust size, and this suit managed to be flattering even on me. I like the snug, supportive fit, too. Highly recommend!

Agree with other reviewers that sizing up is necessary. According to my measurements, I should have been fine in the 36" size, but it was uncomfortably tight in the shoulders and along the edges on the back. The 38" is still a bit snug but definitely more comfortable. Not overly large like I was worried about. I purchased this suit for swimming, and like it because it is modestly cut and also flattering. Have yet to do some swimming in it, but so far am happy with this purchase. Also have to say I love how easy it was to exchange this suit! I requested a different size and it was at my house the next day. All I had to do was drop the return off at UPS. Zappos rocks.

Overall, I think this would have been a great suit. The cut/coverage was what I was looking for. It kept everything nice and in place. I ended up returning it because it was a bit too snug (digging into the shoulders and feeling a little too compressed/held in place), and at the largest size available, I wasn't able to go a size up. Otherwise, the fabric felt great and was exactly what I was looking for.

Definitely order one size up. I had ordered an earlier model of the Maxfit suit two years ago in a 34, which fit great. This suit, however, runs one size small. (I could barely wriggle into it, in fact.) Otherwise, it is a good, solid suit with nice coverage.

This is a nice bathing suit for lap swimming, but I ordered my regular size (34B and waist 26/27), and it was so tight. It runs small! I may order up a size or two.

Liked parts of this design but it didn't come together for me. The back is fun but if you have any kind of boob action going on, note that this has no shelf bra or cups. The fabric wasn't substantial enough on me to reign everything in. I liked the way the top of the Tyr Aqua Tank fit better. Of the two suits, the Aqua Tank felt like the sizing was a little more generous.

The quality of the suit is great -- my complaint is in regards to color. The "Royal" color looks periwinkle on the model, but when it arrived it was a royal blue, as the name implies. Will be sending back.
