This swimsuit was provided to me for review by SwimSuitsforAll. Itâ€™s chlorine resistant, which is excellent since I do water aerobics or swimming 2-4 times a week.
Getting the suit on puzzled me at first (to be fair, I was doing all this before so much as a cup of coffee) because you loop your arms through the armholes and then you pull up the back at your neck. It feels vaguely like a collar; not what Iâ€™m into, but once I got in the water it made total sense. As a childhood victim of the top strap of my swimsuit coming loose, I can appreciate a suit thatâ€™s not going anywhere until youâ€™re ready to take it off.
To date, Iâ€™ve used it twice (I wanted to change out swimsuits, but I wanted to do these photos on dry land, first, so you can see the front and back.) Also, this winter in Minnesota has had me chooosing the treadmill over water rather a lot. Itâ€™s a comfortable fit (Iâ€™m a size 28) and I love being able to do all the movements in the water without worrying about what my suit is going to do in the meantime.Â Iâ€™m not terribly hung up about who sees my fat rolls in the water â€“ in morning water aerobic classes, Iâ€™m easily the youngest there by thirty years, and after awhile you can either a)be a twit and focus on the wrinkles, cellulite and other representations of nature around you or b)just get in your workout and benefit. I choose b.
This is definitely a swimsuit for someone who plans to get in some exercise, and you will definitely be able to concentrate on moving your body rather than on how your suit is moving.
Iâ€™m not as concerned about chlorine resistance as I am about swimsuit dryer resistance; I do rinse my suit at the end of every workout, but I worry that the grinding of that thing canâ€™t be good. After two uses, the suit seems fine, but itâ€™s a great suit I highly recommend and I want to make it last awhile, so I may find some other method to get it dry since I generally stash it in my locker at the YWCA.
