Rated 5 out of 5 by lvseattle Finally Found the Suit!
I absolutely LOVE this swim dress! Here is my summary:
REGULAR vs LONG
I ordered different sizes in regular and long and even though I am 5?4? in height, I found that the ?long? was more flattering. It is cut snug on the sides under the breast for an extra inch or so and then flares out, whereas the regular flares out directly under the breast. As far as ?long? length, I find it to be perfect, even when the suit gets wet.
I also ordered a size up because I found that the straps were more comfortable and had more give with the larger size.
I tried the different colors and my favorite was the navy blue. It keeps its true color. It's flattering and classic.
Every time I wear this swim suit, I get compliments, and the best compliments are from my young adult daughters! My oldest daughter was even thinking about ordering one since she found it to be so flattering!

Rated 5 out of 5 by goalinmind comfortable and a great fit
I ordered suits in different styles and sizes. This one was perfect. Comments on ordering a size larger than what you thought from using the charts was "spot on". I haven't had a suit on for YEARS but am now enrolled in a water exercise program in the neighborhood pool. It covers well and is very comfortable.

I did not like the fit of this suit & I felt very little support for the stomach.

I found the swim dress (skirt )to be too long & just not enough support in the correct spot for my body.
The bra area left a lot to be desired, no uplift at all.
The quality of the material & workmanship was great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ActiveVenus Almost Perfect!
I bought this style in 2010 and loved it so much that when it began to expire in 2014 I decided to try again. I did try other suits at other stores, Longitude used to work, but my figure has expanded past normal ranges. My bust is abundant and my waist is slim comparatively so finding something that works for both is a challenge. So I returned to this swim dress style. And the fit is PERFECT. Just the right amount of shaping, support and coverage at the bust. Though I am near 50 I still like to get out in the ocean and body surf and that needs a worthy suit. It was a bit of a let down that I could not buy a simple black suit (like my old one) but had to choose among poke-a-dot patterns and it was a HUGE disappointment that the under lining was in a light beige color!! When I tumble through the waves invariably the dress part of the suit will reposition itself. The bathing suit bottom is black but the lining that goes from the top of the bottoms to the neckline (including built in bra parts) in all in beige! I need black lining because I wish to camouflage my body in black and not be hinting at a peek-a-boo show! I wish the lining color was a choice. I imagine if there were any darker skinned people shopping they would also appreciate a more universally flattering underlining color. If the suit had black lining the suit would have 5 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MCarroll Great Swim Suit for Plus Size Ladies
This suit is a perfect fit, flattering, and very comfortable. I highly recommend it to anyone but especially plus size ladies who carry the weight in the middle and hips. Got several compliments the first time I wore it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Grandma999 Love my new swimsuit!
This. Swimsuit is perfect for me. I need to feel less self conscious about myself and how I look in a bathing suit in order to enjoy myself in the water. And play with my grand kids in public. Yes I care about how I look and watch my diet and exercise, but at a certain point age and an office occupation have an impact. But, life goes on. This suit is very comfortable. I purchased the "long" style as I am tall and my thighs are an issue for me. It covers perfectly without looking dowdy. I'm. 5'8" and wear a size 12. The undercarriage of the suit is one piece so you don't need to worry about fabric bunching up or possibly exposing more than you'd like. I had several younger women ask where I purchased the suit so I know it really did look ok. My granddaughter thought it looked good too.
