Beauty that doesn't lastI love this suit so much. It fits me perfectly, is very flattering and stays put during active use. I’m really disappointed that, as other reviewers have noted, it really doesn’t hold up. I’ve had the suit for about a year. I swim for exercise at my gym a couple of times a week and alternate this suit with another. I’ve probably worn it 20 times. It has worn through in spots to become see-through (and not just in the butt, where I’ve seen this happen with other suits—although usually after several years of wear) and has become very baggy all over. I can no longer wear it.
I’ve followed the instructions as well as practicality allows:
Rinse immediately after wearing, hang to dry indoors. I wash it every other use by hand in cold water with detergent for bathing suits and again hang to dry indoors. I have never used the spinning dryer (AKA “The Assassin”) at the gym. Really, should it be necessary to treat a bathing suit so carefully? It’s meant to be a piece of active wear. I’ve never had a suit that fell apart so quickly, and I usually spend half as much. BTW, I have had 3 SB suits and have had the same issue with all of them. Sadly, this will be the last.

Beautiful design, but insufficient supportIt's very nice-looking, but for me the material doesn't have enough support (and the straps are stretchy as well) - the other SB swimsuit I have must have much more polyester in it. Sizing runs a little big and I wonder whether L would have worked better than XL. I think I will need to wear a tri-type sports bra under it in order not to feel self-conscious about floppy boobs and a bit of sideboob exposure.

Great Support!Fit like a glove! I was very happy with the luxurious fabric feel yet somehow really supportive and well fitting.

Competitive suit with sweet designThis is a great suit for lap swimming: The thin but strong fabric is quick drying. The wide straps are comfortable over long distances, and the suit overall is very sleek. Nothing pulls or rubs. More comfortable than the usual competitive suits from Speedo, TYR and Nike, with much fresher design. The fit on this suit is a little bigger than the other SB suits.

A great swimsuit, but bring back the KickboardI swim 20 - 30km per week. No, that is not a typo. While SB swimsuits don't last as long as more dreary brands, but it is a nice pick me up to be able to swim in something more fun. I always get great compliments on my SB swimwear.
I jumped at the chance to buy this suit as it reminded me a bit of my now delisted Kickboard Swimsuit. It is super comfortable and doesn't seem to rub anywhere. And the way it is styled is very flattering.
