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.

Cute suitVery cute style and true to size(ordered a 12). Decided to return #1..not ready for the skirt style yet. #2..decided on tankini for the ease of going to the bathroom and not having to get totally undressed. It seemed just as nice as a high priced suit and the colors are vivid and beautiful.
Beautiful colors of blue. I ordered one of each size12 & 14... Looking forward to one of them fitting perfectly. Your suits ALWAYS have a great fit once you figure out your brand and size. I love longitude as I am a bit chubby and the added length allows for this with no shoulder yanking or wedgies lol
Best Answer:The description doesn't say one way or another, however I would guess it is somewhat resistant - I haven't been able to tell the few times I've used it. I also soak my bathing suits in clean tap water after use.
Best Answer:Yes. I wear mine several times/week to the pool. I always rinse it off afterwards, but it is maintaining it's color well. This is my second (and 3rd) Longitude suit. The first one I had lasted several years...it looked great until the elastic at the legs gave out, but the rest of the suit is still in perfect condition. I've worn it in chlorine...ocean salt...and it's great. These are the only suits I buy.
What if you are between size? Do you order the next size up?

Best Answer:We would like to suggest that you watch a video. Next to the sizing option of each item, there is a 'sizing info' chart. There you will then click on the 'how to measure' tab. You will then be able to watch the suggested video. If you still do not know what size to get after that, we would suggest you try a size in the middle of the ones that you are in between.
