I bought this suit a month ago and I am VERY pleased with the suit. At first the closure was tricky, but after a few practices I learned how to get it on and off right. I swim laps in the pool about 5 times a week in an indoor pool, so there is a lot of chlorine. I also use the hot tub about 3 times a week for about 20 minutes a session. The color has stayed true so far. I want to tell you how comfortable this is. It feels so incredibly good. Nothing restrictive, and everything is held in place and covered. I don't have to worry about anything as I do my flip turns either. Plus, I have gotten several compliments on the gorgeous colors! I'm 5ft. 2inches, 223 lbs. and this suit covers my hanging belly too!
