Extremely prone to fade with little use
I loved this for its bright colours. I've only had it for 4 months And it gets used 2-3 times a week. I've followed all the washing guidelines etc but the stitching has already gone on one side (in the orange bit near the bottom) and it has faded more than any other swimwear I've ever owned to an extent that it will probably have to go in the bin soon. Am v disappointed as it was a lovely swimsuit initially and looks gorgeous on. My advice would be its great for freshwater it sea water but to avoid if you're a regular chlorinated pool swimmer!!!

Shape just not right for me
I have broad shoulders and narrow hips. The shape of this swimsuit just didn't suit me. It was snug at the top with baggy fabric at the bottom. Not at all flattering so I sent it back and bought another Speedo costume which suit my shape better.
The fabric and styling are lovely if it fits. I also had no trouble getting into it through the neck opening.

Need "how to put on" instructions
I looked at this design and strategically ponder how to put this on. In the end I managed by stretching one of the arm holes to fit my torso in, then pulling the arm bit over my head. it was a very scary few minutes because I have got very wide hips and I was really afraid that it would tear. Could you please please make costumes which are easier to get into? I don't think the designer really thought about this, or she/he has got vey slim hips.
I love sweaty Betty's swimsuits, and have several but this is a problem which exist in other designs too like the power suit, my arms are not long enough to do the zip at the back.
Very flattering once on though!!

Love this swimsuit. Bought it to wear diving but it is too pretty so sported it around the pool instead. Little difficult to get in at first but it is so figure flattering. This is the first product I ever purchased from
Sweaty Betty and I plan to purchase more based on the quality of this
swimsuit. I also love the site.

Loose fitting top
Very difficult to get on and then when pushing off the top at the front fills with water and balloons

Beautiful colors not good for lap swimming
I loved the design and colors in the swimsuit, however it was a bit tricky to put on but that was not too bad. The problem I had with this suit was as I was swimming laps the high back started to rub on my back. It was super irritating so I could not wear the suit. I also went open water swimming and the straps gave me a welt on my neck. I'm not sure what the material but I found it to be very abrasive to my skin. I also bought the two piece Dive In bikini and absolutely love it. So cute and comfortable to swim in!

Very comfortable and got lots of good feedback on it
Love the design and fit is good for me. Very comfortable to swim laps and looks good too!

great, stylish swim suit
Great suit. Good fit - swayed by earlier reviews I erred on choosing a larger size, which is just fine. Stylish and no need to keep adjusting while swimming.

THE most stunning combination of gorgeous colours!
And the colours are all cleverly positioned in perfect areas to show off or enhance waist and bust. Only trouble is it's tight round the top bit and rather loose round the hips and bottom......for me that is. So if you are narrow through the rib cage and have child-bearing hips then it will work better for you. I'm a size 8 or even 6 and rather flat chested with narrow hips. But I love the design so much I bought a medium and got it altered in the gusset / crotch and side hip seams by my talented seamstress. I also put the bra inserts from my Sweaty Betty 'Up Beat Padded Bra' into the bra shelf to give me more 'bust shape'. I'm wondering if anyone else has found the same problem and if so maybe Sweaty Betty will re design it for our proportions.
