I use this suit to do my aquafit exercises in. The cross back straps keep the straps up and you do not have to drag them up continuously. I do have trouble getting the elastic at the back of the bra straight but having the strap is preferable to not as it helps hold the bra in place.
I ordered this bathing suit for water aerobics. I wear size 14/16 .I ordered this suit in a size 16 . It was to small. I sent it back and ordered a size 18. It was a perfect fit . This suit is great for being at the beach or other water activities. I'm getting ready to order another one.
Great suit for a great price. Very good bust support for my DD's. I'm in the pool 5 days a week and other suits just fell apart on me. I bought this top with the skirt bottom and feel covered modestly in the spa. Very happy with it and very glad to find a chlorine resistant suit for a good price on sale.
