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!!!

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!

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.

Best swimsuit I've ever bought!
Haven't had it long enough to say it keeps its shape but delighted with it so far. Great design, looks fantastic on- which is something I never thought I'd say about a swimsuit. Should've bought two......

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

I was very doubtful when I ordered this swimsuit having read the customer reviews. I am bigger on top (F cup) and honestly thought I'd be returning it, but hoped for the best based on my previous SB swimsuit purchases. SO glad I did. Fabulous fit. I didn't have the struggles mentioned by previous reviewers and only encountered the normal stresses of putting on any swimsuit after a hot sweaty workout (sorry if TMI). My only hope now is that it stands the test of time as that has been an issue in the past. I've worn this about a dozen times so far and absolutely love it.
