  • Flat dry.
  • 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.

Formosa Surplice Swimsuit is rated 4.52 out of 5 by 25.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful suit but not long length Beautiful suit in every way except for the length--it's one inch shorter in the straps than another I bought elsewhere and is not comfortable in the shoulders and under the arms--everywhere else it fits great. Make sure to measure your length against the size guide.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Legs cut to narrow, straps bite into underarm I love everything about this suit except the fit. Ordered my size and found that the leg and armholes openings are smaller than on other suits causing the suit to be very uncomfortable in these areas. Ordered the next larger size which did help with the above issue but the suit was just too large overall and thus returned it. Very disappointed as this was one of top choices.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Look! Bought a Longitude suit last month and it runs a bit large so I just bought my second one. Can't wait to use them on my cruise in May.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fitting suit I just received my Longitude swimsuit and I can't wait to wear it. It is true to size and the colors are very vibrant. Would definitely recommend this suit or other Longitude suits. No crawling or tugging on this suit but I haven't worn it in water yet. Would definitely buy again

Rated 5 out of 5 by from bright and beautiful I hesitiated choosing a print, but I love the orange ad the classic topical look. The surplice is very flattering. It is not long in the torso, so if you need that, this is not the one. It is average, not short.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fits well I exchanged another Longitude suit for this one and like it very much.

Is the back of this suit solid black as in the picture?
A shopper on Jul 14, 2015
BEST ANSWER: yes, the back is solid Black! This is my favorite suit and the style. I am a large busted women and sort of a thick waist and narrow hips. I actually bought 2 of the same and am so glad i did. the one has faded and i wear it when i swim alone :) the other i just took out of the bag to check the back to answer the question.
are they true in size. I am between 22 and 24?
A shopper on Apr 9, 2014
BEST ANSWER: This item does run true to size.
