I swim daily in a variety of pools, most of which have fairly high chlorine levels. I used to go through a lycra suit every 4-6 weeks, but my Sugoi suits lasted me almost 2 years!! Its a little tight getting on initially, but the fit and comfort while swimming is excellent. The only draw back is that different colors/patterns fit a little differently and they run about one size smaller than the traditional lycra racing suits.
Was this a gift?:
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Before ordering I looked at the size chart. I have 39 inch hips (usually an 8 or sometimes a 10 in pants) and therefore ordered the size 34 (up to 40 inch hip). When it arrived, I couldn't even get it on it was so small. No clue what is up with the size chart. Unless you know your size for this brand, I suggest ordering with caution.
