  • 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 4.619 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from At Last! I'm a lap swimmer, very tall and well-proportioned. I have had problems since age 16 finding a suit that fits. This one is everything I've ever wanted in a suit. It fits my long torso, doesn't ride up, accommodates the bust and is COMFORTABLE. I've had compliments on the design and it seems to be holding up in the Arizona sun. I've already recommended your suits to other tall friends. Shipping was much faster than expected as well. Thanks for finally getting a swimsuit to market for tall women that FITS and doesn't cost an arm and a leg!

I loved the first one, and am antiscipating my delight of 2 more soon to arrive. . And I love your attitude with fav curve being my smile:) And I truly,sincerely love the fit of Longitude style. Thank you, Thank you!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pretty colors This suit is very pretty and I tend to like the V-neck suits the best. I have been buying size 20 and getting a good fit but for some reason this particular suit seems to run a bit smaller than my past purchases. I wish all swimsuits had more support in the bust as I am a large busted woman but seems impossible to find one for less than $100. This suit was on sale so price was right.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love that Longitude! This is my third Longitude suit...very flattering one piece. I especially like the length in the torso and the dip in the back. I am 65+ years old, so a swimsuit must be comfortable. Because I swim in salt water, as well as chlorine, I am hard on suits. These suits wear well, but over time the material thins in the butt region. Then, it's time for a new one (usually one a year).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A really good buy I'm a 60-something in, shall we say, not the greatest of shape, and I am extremely happy with the way this suit fits and looks. It has good support in all the important areas. I followed the fitting information on the website and it worked. The suit is of very good quality and offered for a reasonable price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite swimsuit! I first found this stylish suit several years back and loved it. I was worried I wouldn't be able to find it again when my suit wore out and was thrilled to find it here and bought 2 more, stashing one suit for later on. I use it for snorkeling and pool time and get many compliments on it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect for my long torso Always a struggle to find a 'long' enough one-piece for my body, but this Longitude really fit well...and LOVED the price! The design and style is very flattering for my curves; first 'non-skirted' tankini or one piece I will really feel comfortable in because of the flattering look.

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
