After every use, the garment must be hand washed. Harmful elements such as suntan lotions, salt, chlorine, and body perspiration can cause discoloration and spandex breakdown. Since laundry detergents are too harsh on the spandex and the color, use mild hand soap made without added moisturizers. Do not wring the swimsuit to remove excess water. Lay it flat on a towel and roll the towel up and squeeze gently. Remove it from the towel and lay it flat to dry. Do not hang it to dry as that will stretch out the fibers in the fabric. Avoid using washers and dryers as damage can occur due to agitation and excessive heat. It is also important to let your suit "rest" between uses. This allows the spandex to bounce back (called recovery) to its original size and maintain its fit longer. If you wear a suit without letting it recover, it will lose its shape and fit more quickly. It's recommended to let the suit rest for 24-36 hours between uses. Always remove excess moisture with a towel and lay flat to dry indoors or in the shade. Also note, direct sunlight will fade your suit. It is always a great idea to have more than one suit.

Have to add to my first reviewI posted a review when I first got this suit. I still love the fit and the way it looks on me. I wear this suit five times a week for water aerobics. Unfortunatly, I am finding that this suit does NOT hold up well to chlorine, at least not the degree of chlorine used in a gym pool. The material has turned "sticky" and around the side seams you can now actually see through the suit! Very disappointing as I truly LOVE this suit! Mine, however, did not last more than 6 weeks with the use I gave it. I would still recommend this suit IF it will have lighter chlorine exposure (such as beach or private pool.)

slimmingThe suit is so slimming around the mid section made some as alterations to make it fit better. One being the straps are not adjustable which is a bummer. The straps were 4 inches too long. So I had to have them alertered. The next thing was the clevage showed so much that I had a couple of stitches put in at the bust and it is perfect. I pair with a black sarong and its beautiful. Also the back works pretty well to hide any back bulge.

Extremely flatteringI LOVE the way this suit looks on! I tend to be a little thick waisted and the design makes my waist look much smaller and more defined. It provides adequate support and coverage so that everything stays where it is supposed to during my very energetic aqua aerobic classes. I found the fit to be good. I wear a size 12 in clothes and bought a 12 in the suit and it fits beautifully!

I am a frequent Longitude buyerI am a lap swimmer and find the Longitude brand comfortable. It also provides good support.
I liked the colors but it doesn't look good on me as the straps are too long and the line at the bottom where the color ends accentuates the hips and makes them appear even larger. I wish now I had returned it at the time.
