Closeouts. From Speedo's fun Flip Turns collection, the FL Clip Back practice swimsuit features a lightweight, pool-friendly fabric -- Endurance Lite -- which provides the chlorine resistance of Endurance fabric with less weight.

This was the poorest cut Speedo I have ever put on and I have put on a lot since I have been swimming competetively for 20+ years. The seat coverage was much less than I would like and there was enough room in the stomach area to be a maternity suit.

I also bought this in the green/white/black zebra accent print, which my petite 13 year old promptly adopted. She's smaller than me, but it fit her just fine anyway. I only ordered another color so I could have one for myself. The black paint spatter pattern does not work, especially on the seat--think about it. Oh well. Sent it back.

Read the reviews for this suit and did order a size up. Should have ordered my normal size. The clip is not on speedo racing suits and I found a bit cumbersome when trying to get into the suit quickly. Must have good arm range of motion to clip behind back or will have to clip before putting on. Appreciate Speedo's chlorine resistant suits.

I got this suit for lap swimming, and it is wonderful! It dries quickly, looks really cute, and is very flattering. I was a little worried about the clip in the back, but I don't have any problem getting it hooked. I will definitely buy another suit like this in the future!

After returning the 36 for a 34, I am happy with this suit. I am 5'4.5", with long torso and 34A bust, "curvy" seat and hips about 37". This suit has a moderately high cut leg and plenty of coverage in back. My only complaint on first wearing it is that the thin straps dig a little over my shoulders as I swim, enough so that I am often reminded of them when my focus should be on other things. Also, you have to be limber to reach up and over your shoulders to clip the little plastic thingy that holds the straps together in the back. I like that the polyester is thinner and smoother (faster) than my last Speedo Endurance flyback.

Nice print and colors. I am an average shape and size 4-6 and I had to return the 34 and get a 36. It is still small/tight but the legnth doesn't correspond to the width. I can wear it but it's not quite right

Based on reviews, I ordered this in 36 at first, but exchanged it for a 34 (5'4.5", long torso, 36.5-37.5" hips) This fit about the same in size 34 as my other Speedo PBT polyester suit, a flyback, which I have worn for a couple of years. The difference is this fabric is sleeker, smoother, and there is not a water catching (think heavy "drag suit") gap between suit and me at the neckline when I swim. I like the fit--plenty of butt coverage and moderately high leg openings. I have a small bust and the fit is fine for me. The adjustable straps with minimal coverage over the back are nice, so I can use the suit for sunbathing. I need to detach the little plastic clasp in back in order to get the suit on, and yes, you need to be limber enough to reach up over your shoulders to clasp it, or else find a buddy at the pool to clasp it for you. I like this style and expect to get plenty of wear out of it. The purple/green print is interesting.
