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.

Great swimdress - good coverage.Like this swimdress, the colors were vibrant, true to photo. Really like the cut of the dress too, I am a busy mom of 2 young children, so need something that allows me to chase around a bit after them as needed. I found it held my chest well (size 38DD-38DDD). The fit was true to size I think, I'm a 2X or 22, depending, I ordered size 22 and it fit well, perhaps could have gone for a tighter fit in size 20, but this was great. The only negative I could find is that when you are in the water, the dress part can float all the way up, I wish it was attached/tethered a bit to the swimsuit around the hips, so that it wouldn't float up.

Love it! Love it! Love it!This was the first suit I bought from S4A. I love the fit, the look and the fabric. It helped me build the confidence to get back out in swimsuits again. I was very happy with the feel of the swim suit and the swimdress concept. I like that I can wear it out in a public setting and not be shy or feel the need to cover up. I toggle between size 18 and 20 and have many curves I prefer to not share with others. This suit hides them all and makes me feel attractive as do all of the other suits I have purchased since. I love all of the choices that S4A has to offer. As a plus size person, I have very few choices in the local brick and mortar stores in my area and the low prices that S4A offers just continue to amaze me.

nice suit, IF you are a C-D cupI am a B-C and found the top very roomy. The suit was listed on the net and in SwimsuitsForAll as a long torso - and it is that; I doubt it will ride up - and the fabric feels great and. Swimsuits for all! However, I did not notice that ALL suits in this line are C-D cups - ordering a size smaller, for instance, does not help those with smaller busts.
When worn, the suit looks, as the photo suggests, on the D side on top - which is simply the way it and all the Longitude one-piece suits (ll"the collection with a calling: just the right length and fit for longer torsos"), apparently, are made.

Good and Not so good!Good: Colour, design, length
Not so good: Its a bit on the bigger side..... I am a size 20 and ordered the same but it runs big for me..... especially on the top...
Also as the other reviewer mentioned, the dress part just floats up while in the pool. Wish it would be attached at the belly or bottom.

Nice suit with decent supportThis was my third try and I'm happy to say I like this suit. It is supportive in the bust area and fits well otherwise. All of the suits I've tried have been good quality and I have been happy with their return policy. Overall I feel it's a nice suit for a good price.

Covered and cute!I bought this not too long ago because I hated wearing little bathing suits and I'm self conscious about my stomach. The style I was afraid was going to be a bit too matronly. Turns out it looks great and not too matronly at all! I'm 22 so this was a major concern as to me purchasing this since it was not the cheapest thing out there. It is comfortable and I LOVE it!

So colorful! Love it!Love the fit, it's a good suit for water exercise.
I thought this style was figure flattering when I saw it in actually pictures of people in the gallery. I loved the colors, the print, and the slimming panel inside, as well as that there is no cleavage displayed and the double straps. I hope it fits just right.
the print helps in hiding a larger body. all black can make you look like a blob but this will give the illusion of a more thin figure. It has paneling to help with the stomach and wont cling to your thighs or expose them too high.
I liked the modesty of this swimdress and the fact that you had my size. I am a tall lady and it is hard to find swimsuits that fit. I am also grateful that you work hard to make sure that the swimsuits fit and will work with us if they don't.
Best Answer:Hello there, I ordered a Size 18 in this and I am a DD and the top part was a little too big for me. So since I am not sure what size you are ordering, I am not sure if this would fit you or not. Sorry i couldn't really help.
I have an apple shape, carrying a lot of my extra weight in my tummy. I'm 5'9-1/2" tall, 190#, and have a long torso. I have 2 blouson styles in my cart, but am concerned about if the tops will be long enough to actually "blouse" over my belly. I love this suit and the great reviews, but am wondering if this one will be too fitted from under the bustline to the waistline, and if the under-panel will be too tight on me. I know that anything with an empire waist makes me look pregnant! At 62-years old, that's not a good look. :) Do you think that the under-panel will help to minimize and hold in my stomach in comfort, or should I stick with the 2-piece blouson style?

Best Answer:Hello! Since it has a PowerMesh tummy-control panel that smooths and flattens waist it will be a comfortable fit for you. It also slims torso and minimizes hips, rear and thighs so it should fit pretty well.
Best Answer:This is a one piece with a black, full coverage bottom attached. There is no need for an additional swimsuit bottom. You slip it on the same as you would with any one piece suit. It's a very comfortable swimdress. I love it. Longitude makes great quality swimwear.
