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 think this suit will flatter my 5'9, plus-size figure. I have a long torso and have worn Longitude in the past, and it fits great. I would normally wear an 18, but based on other reviews, decided to order one size up. I think the "zany zebra" stripes, ruffle, and tie add a bit of fun flair.
I love the style and I previously purchased a Longitude bathing suit, and 10 yrs later, still wear it! I've also compared your price to other prices of same or similar suits, and found this to be the best price. Can't wait to receive it!
I chose it because it's Plus Size and pretty and not all black, which is hard to find in Plus Size. And because it has color but is not too flashy, the color pattern is done so that it disguises any belly or rolls of fat, because of the diagonal lines which disguise my large size, and the wider shoulder straps which are better and more comfortable for big busted women.
I am returning one item and ordering two new bathing suits. Will you apply the excess amount now due (after crediting my refunded amount) to my existing credit card on file? Neither of my two new bathing suits are the same price as the returned suit. Thank you, Donna McDonald
