Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I bought and have been using this suit for awhile and really like it. I am 5'6.5" tall and weigh 145lbs. I wear a 32D and the 38 was recommended to me by phone and I found it fits just great. The design is a great fool the eye, flattering effect. This suit does not have a shelf bra, or any bra at all, and yet because of the snug fit it does keep the "girls" in place. Straps, bottom, everything stays in place while swimming. What more could you want? Flattering and functional.
I purchased this suit and received it about a week ago. I teach swim lessons so I am in the water a lot, but I also used to be a swimmer and I have never had a suit fade this bad this fast. I have worn it about 4-5 times now. It was also a little tight when I first put it on but it has loosened up as well. I got a 32. The fit hasn't degraded as bad as the color, but it is definitely not as tight as it was. I specifically purchased it because the description said it had fabric that resisted chlorine 5-10x longer. I almost didn't choose it in the first place because it was $60 but I thought spending more money would get me a better suit. Guess not.
Never been a swimmer, but I started swimming after two injuries and a surgery took me out of running. I only had one suit (a Speedo) from years ago and knew I needed another. As a woman with a large chest, I'm used to having difficulty finding clothes to fit, particularly swimsuits. I had heard great things about TYR and went to their site for sizing info. Unfortunately, it didn't help much. When I got the suit and held it up, I knew immediately there would be a problem. I tried it on and could barely get it over my hips. It ran so small! The fabric feels like it's good quality and the seams look well put together (my mom sews, so it's something I look at).
I considered sending it back, but since I'm trying to lose the weight I gained after my injuries and surgery, I'm using it for motivation. Hopefully I can update this review once it fits.
