Sizes 8-16 fit up to a C/D cup; sizes 18-34 fit up to a D/DD cup
Swimsuit fits true to size and perfect for women with long torsos
82% Nylon / 18% Spandex
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.
Women with longer torsos often find it difficult to find a proper fit and style that flatters the figure while staying comfortable and classy. The Longitude® brand was made to fit that need, and evolved out of the well renowned Robby Len® swimsuit brand. Longitude® swimsuits use basic bodies such as one piece suits and skirted tankinis. The fresh, new designs have an air of sophistication, developed by using sleek, sharp, and classy solids & color blocks as well as big, colorful florals and tropical prints. Any woman with a longer torso will appreciate the fine attention to detail and contemporary styles of this brand.

Perfect for me!I use it to go to aqua therapy in a heated pool where I have to exercise and it's a great suit with bright beautiful purples, navy and metalic gold colors. The high neckline keeps me worry free of anything showing (or popping out). It also had great coverage in the buttocks area. I wanted to get another of the same suit, but they're out of my size. I use an 18 and it was true to size. Fit perfectly. Hope they get them back in stock.

Nice SuitI bought this suit and one other (not a longitude). This suit does fit well. However, for me, it is large in the bust. I am a 38D and bought a size 16 based on my hip measurements. It fits well there, but is a bit large in the bust. Also, the hook is almost impossible to do. I have figured out how to get it on by hooking it first and then putting my head thru the opening. Once on, it looks/fits good. I just keep wondering if I could have worn a 14. It would have been better in the bust, but not sure if it would have been too small in the hips. I use the suit to do some pool exercising and have only worn it once so far, so not sure how it will hold up in the chlorinated water. For the price, though, I am pleased.

Great Suit!I bought this suit about a month ago and have used it for swimming laps. Love the high neck line, do not get the drag when diving into the pool as w/the lower neck lines. I am an apple figure w/a long torso, & B/C bust, I still had to go up 1 size to get the proper longer torso fit, However, even w/doing this I still get a far better fit than w/off the rack suits - so am VERY pleased!! I wear the black "Swim shorts" to hide imperfects due to being the Silver-Boomer age group and am very happy with the look. This suit: The yellow in the pic is actually a true-gold color and suit is much darker when wet. I'd bought a tankini and the tank was hard to get off, so switched to this and swim-shorts. Love-Love the high neck line & I have large upper arms and the opens were perfect. Love this site - Colorful, quality suits for Women's size!!

Great swimsuit!About the only con with this swimsuit is that it could use a little more support in the bust (hence 4 stars instead of 5.) That being said, on the whole, I really, really love this suit. I bought it for a recent trip to Hawaii with my two very rambunctious boys under four years old and managed to not flash anyone the entire trip (and didn't look like a grandma either!) It's possible that it would be a bit better in a smaller size, since the lack of support up top could be remedied if I sized down. However, the suit was still great without it. The snap hook closure at the top really helps it feel secure.
On another note, I also like that it doesn't have high cut sides. Some swimsuits seem to be cut at too steep an angle at the leg holes (I have no idea if there's a term for this?), and this one didn't have that issue. For active swimming, I think I'm going to stick to this style of swimsuite.

What a stunner!Another triumph for Longitude! The material is vivid and high quality. When I wear it I always get compliments (despite my shape!). I swim laps, and so like a costume that stays put and I've always found that Longitude costumes are perfect. Having worn surplice styles before, I did struggle a little with the clip at first. Now, after wearing it several times, I'm fine with it. I regularly encourage Aussies to purchase from Swimsuitsforall - they're great value! With p&p included, this one cost just $79!

good coverage, secure fitI have several Longitude suits of this style -- high neck with hook at back neck -- and really appreciate how well they work for water aerobics or laps because there's no need for constant adjusting when you're working out. The suit stays in place no matter how you move. The high neckline and moderate cut leg opening are good features. The only thing to improve these suits is to make the soft cup bra more supportive -- especially for those with large busts.

Not for meThis suits fits well in the bust (I'm a 36DDD) but it is just a little too short in the torso. I might be able to live with that if it wasn't for the shimmery gold accents all over the suit. I imagine this might even be a little blinding in the sun! Way too shimmery and I could not tell that from the pic or description.

Great for Plus SizeI thought the color and pattern might be too bold for a plus size senior, but was very happy with this choice when it arrived. The suit fits very well and the high neckline will be great for aerobics. Just with the straps were adjustable as I feel they may slip off the shoulders when wet. Sizing is good.
I'm trying desperately to camouflage my large bust, no luck yet. The Heatwave has a light stripe right across the bust that accentuates. I have had the Camelot before and will try again with it. The Heatwave has a looser cup and thinner fabric than my other two Longitudes and I hope this is not a manufacturing trend.
DIsappointed in this suit. Fit was off; seemed that material did not have as much give as the Aquabelle suits in the same size. I love the back hooks but this one had too much material to fit on the hook so it was almost impossible to hook securely.
Wondering if this bathing suit is Chlorine Resistent?
A shopper on Oct 15, 2014
Best Answer:Our Longitude swimsuits are not specifically chlorine resistant, but our Aquabelle collection is entirely chlorine resistant! I would strongly recommend buying our Swim Suit Solution protective cleanser - as this will safely remove all of the chlorine from your Longitude suit & that will preserve the Lycra & suit's shape/color.
Sorry I can't answer this question as I have only worn this suit in the Atlantic Ocean and Gulf of Mexico. But I have worn other suits from this company in my sister's pool...which granted isn't as heavily chlorinated as a public pool...and didn't have a problem with it looking faded.
