  • Full powernet tummy control lining smooths and flattens
  • Surplice V-neckline neckline accentuates bust. This V-neckline with cross over, surplice, design draws attention upward to accentuate the bust.
  • Surplice, with diagonal wrap front design, visually slims torso
  • Foil accented print breaks up torso and visually slims waist
  • Soft molded cup bra with plush empire band provides full bust support
  • Sizes 8-16 fit up to a C/D cup.
  • Sizes 18-34 fit up to a D/DD cup
  • One piece fits true to size
  • Swimsuit fits true to size but fits well for women with long torso as well
  • 82% Nylon / 18% Spandex
  • Hand wash.
  • 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.

I like the design. I have a similar suit that finally reached the end of its life as the gold piping started rubbing off and there were spots where the suit wore out. The other suit looks nice and is figure flattering. I like this style suit for times when the fashion of your suit is important!

the style is right for body my shape
Bennie K on Jul 1, 2014
Faux wrap style is flattering.
A cut for a longer torso is what I need.
Overall, the suit is very pretty and elegant. More sophisticated than some of the others on the site.

elizabeth c on Jun 24, 2014
Ive had the same suit, (style and brand), for 4 years. I wanted another one with a different design.The fit is awesome, ( I am a DD cup) most suits the fit along the bust is too big and I feel I will fall out in the ocean. This suit has never given me that feeling. Also this suit is so comfortable. It looks as new as when I bought it originally, ( I do not put it in the dryer). I highly recommend this suit for its fit and comfort!
