Closeouts. Dolfin's Ariel competition swimsuit is primed for hours in the pool thanks to Xtra Life Lycra®, specially constructed to deliver lasting shape retention, compression and resistance to chlorine fade.

My daughter has 2 other Dolfin suits in size 32. (with the thinner straps) this suit fits, but is just a little smaller. It is billed as a competition suit, which should fit tighter anyway. Maybe buy one size bigger if just using for training. Fabric is great!

I initially bought this suit in a size 36, based on reviews saying it was small. Then I realized that it is normal and so I exchanged it for size 32. I am 5' 91/2" and 130-132lbs, but size 34-35 AA. I do swim workouts as well as teach deep water classes in this suit. I probably could have gotten away with a size 30, but since I'm not swimming competitively, I prefer my suit a little looser on my shoulders. Good suit, we'll see how it holds up to the chlorine. It has good coverage and no worries of seeing through it for awhile!

Based on other reviews I first sized up. I quickly realized that for swimming, my normal size would be fine and thanks to STP's great exchange policy I now have it. For reference, I am 5'9 1/2" 130lbs and long waisted. Size 32 is snug when dry but stays in place and feels good in the water.

I especially like this suit because of the stretchy fabric from which it is made. The suits made of chloroban and ? other so- called " chlorine- resistant " fabrics do not give enough. I have bought many Dolfin suits from STP over the years because of the very reasonable price, especially with extra discounts ( Get on Deal Flyer!). But when buying this one I specifically tried to stay away from Chloroban, etc. (Perhaps the key to those suits is to go a size- up?). It also runs true to size. ( I bought this suit in a 34 and I am 5'3 and 1/2" tall and weigh about 125 with a 34D chest. Bigger chests beware!) I didn' t give the suit 5- stars because the patterns and colors available on this model of suit weren' t as gorgeous as on some of those other suits which don' t fit me as well.
