I've only used this suit a couple of times, so I can't speak to the durability, but I'm very happy with it. It's fairly true to size, though snug, as it should be if you want to swim for exercise. The Royal/Black, though it looks very purple on the website, is a actually a nice royal blue color.
The back has a skinny racer back with a round lower opening.

The back is very similar to the ones on the TYR Poseidon Diamondback Compition Swimsuit and the Tyr St. Elmos Fire Competion Swimsuit - Diamondback, but the hole below the criss-cross might be a bit larger/lower.

Straps cross in the back, somewhat high up. I believe it means the straps are in no danger of falling off your shoulders.

It is mid back with the straps criss crossing.

“I would like to see the back veiw of this suit. I do not want a low cut back. I have a long torso and wonder if this is long enough.”

This swimsuit does not have any bra support. But because it is reversible, it is slightly thicker than traditional suits. If you are concerned about modesty as I am, I usually wear the black side of my suit rather than the light blue side so that "nothing shows."
