I have been ordering aquabelle suits for more than a year. I am active in water aerobic and water Zumba classes at the gym, attending 5-10 classes weekly. I have lost enough weight that is was time to down size! This suit replaced my favorite suit in a larger size. I love the high neck style and own several. I find them very comfortable during my workouts. The one that I replaced is about a year old, and when you put the two suits side by side, the color is the same, so no fading and it held its shape well. I have only worn the new suit once, but expect it to last for awhile.
