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.

Extra length is good, but bust still needs heightI love Longitude suits because of the extra torso length! Have been wearing them for over 30 years. Have several, and this review is for all of them. However, would like to see more bust support (like underwires) to lift and separate and shape the bust. Enhance cleavage. Even the shelf bras allow the bust to sag and fall too low. The length of the suits is great, but the bust needs to be raised higher. The bust is also too big for the rest of the suit. Definitely made for extra large bust, I am average not small. The stretch in the suits actually pull my bust down. I hate that. Perhaps even longer torso is needed for the suit to allow the bust to be high enough.

Loved the pattern!I bought 3 different styles at terrific sale prices but unfortunately the "cut" of the low back does not provide "me" with adequate support at the front . . . I'll be returning them shortly and searching to see if they have a design with a higher back to give my bust more support. I vary between a double and triple "D", so if your size is slightly smaller, the suit ought to be great. . . . I just made an inappropriate design choice for my particular body shape; sad; I loved the feel of the fabric itself and and colorful pattern.

Color not as picturedI have successfully ordered from this company many times. This time the color is different than the picture. There are significant streaks and patches of metallic gold in it and the gold always fades faster than the rest of the suit from past experience. I decided to keep it because of the exceptional price, but I sure wish I could have one that looked more like the photo. I recommend they share a photo that looks like the suit.

LovelyIn order to exercise a swimsuit is a must. Being unable to walk well it is great to find swimsuits that not only are attractive but fit my long torso. The fit is one that is really appreciated- the length and the bra size are are the two things that create a good fit . Thanks for providing this at an affordable price

Gold additional color not seen in photoThis is a lovely well made bathing suit as described. However, I have returned it due to the bright gold accents in the pattern that are not shown in its photo. The photo looks blue and purple, but the actual suit has multiple splashes of shiny gold across the pattern that make my pale skin look even more pale.

Very disappointedI bought this primarily because it was described as being good for long torsos. It was clear when I put it on that it was too short. I measured against my other same size suits and it was 3-4 inches shorter! Too much of a hassle to return it, but it will be at the bottom of my drawers.

Longitude is AWESOMEI'm 5'9" and love the fit of the Longitude suits. I'm in a aerboic class 3 times a week. This suit has plenty of coverage and stays put. Colors are pretty. No fading. I have tried other brands but always come back to Longitude.

Top stitching defective!This is the only Longitude swimsuit that I've ever purchased that was defective. The armholes and neckline stitching is totally stretched after two times of wearing it. Since I am not big on top, the suit is no longer wearable.
I chose it for something different but I cannot say I am overly happy with it. It is barely 3 months old and the lycra is already starting to let go. I wear it 3 days a week for aquacise class, rinse it in baking soda water. I hang dry in the bathroom not outside.
I love purple; its my signature; everyone knows me as the purple lady. As I have lost weight; I am getting back a long torso again. I want to see if Longitude will fit more comfortably than the average suits do.
