I love the fact that this is light weight with good coverage for the bust area. It's a lovely design, but I didn't find it to have any power mesh tummy control (which is OK by me, because I hate feeling constricted). The only real drawback for the suit for me is the clasp. No matter how hard I struggled, I was unable to get the plastic hook through the fabric loop on the other side. The loop would claps mid-way through and I just could not get it hooked. It was comical trying to hook it and then get it over my head. That didn't work either. Although "Swimsuits for All" offers no hassle returns, I liked enough about the suit that I was DETERMINED to make it work. I had some black lycra swimsuit material scraps and made a strand which I lopped through both sides and tied in the back into a ribbon. I left sufficient room so that I can slip the suit neck hole over my head. It looks OK, and I think it will hold up in water aerobics classes. Only time will tell on that one. I would hesitate to recommend the suit, only because I had so much trouble with the clasp. Perhaps if I were taller, longer arms would have enabled me to hook without issues. Don't know.
