nice lap suit

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Middle-aged Pool Swimmer from New York, NY on Thursday, February 14, 2013
I was looking for a polyester (chlorine-resistant) suit, wanting to be ready when my current one wears out. [I don't know why anybody would choose lycra suits... but that's another story.]
According to the mfg's size chart, I am in-between, so following the advice of previous raters I ordered the larger size. This turned out to be correct. Although I have a 36" bust which might have made me a 10, the 12 fits fine except for being a little tight across the back -- maybe because I have a large rib cage.
I haven't worn the suit into the pool as yet so can't comment on fading, durability, etc. However, the X-back design will clearly allow freedom of movement for serious laps. I appreciate the conservative cut of the legs, which I won't have to keep pulling down for comfort and coverage. In a good balance for me, it's not TOO conservative -- the top has a normally revealing cut, both front and back.
[Note: I think this mfg. may make more than one suit called "conservative." If I'm right, there's a different one that is cut higher on top, and does not have an X back.]
