Good Swimsuit With a Few But's.......
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 2 December 2017
Firstly, can I say that I read MANY reviews regarding this swimsuit and I was in two minds as to whether to go ahead and order it - or not! Well I did order it and many of the reviews are correct!!
I am 5ft 8inches tall and a standard UK size 14. I ordered this swimsuit in a size 36 and it fits perfectly. BUT -
1. The material is definitely not what you would expect from a Speedo costume. I have had 3 Speedo costumes in my lifetime,( only renewed every time due to my body change or change in fashion) but this material is DIFFERENT! It almost feels as if it is a fake copy but it definitely has all the logo's/ labels for a true Speedo suit. Personally I think Speedo costumes do last - they go the distance, so not too sure that I can say the same for this new suit. Only time will tell.
2. The hole at the back is weird. Feels too low and too big and YES it did give me a weird 'back-boob' thing, but you get used to it.
3. Although it does have a lining that was just for the breast area ( wouldn't say this was for support!), it wasn't lined anywhere else. Felt it could have been fully lined at the front. Therefore, you do feel like you are just wearing a material 'skin' - it shows EVERYTHING!!!
4. Leg length is good but yes, it does ride up as you swim. So you do end up doing a lot of 'pulling down', which sort of defeats the object of buying a swimsuit like this.
But that said, I do like this swimsuit. I hope this review doesn't put you of buying it because it is a Speedo, and I do think they are very good. I don't regret buying this swimsuit and will be very interested to see if the material will stand the test of time.
