I'm 5ft 3 and I wouldn't say I have a particularly long body, but this is perfect on me. I also ordered the Sandon, and was surprised there was such a variation in the length of this suit, I measured it and it's approximately 1.5 inches longer in the body than the Sandon, and the added bonus is this one doesn't have padded cups. I'm a little overweight, probably fit about size 12, and I would normally size up in the back to account for this, and down a cup size, however I tried that and my normal cup size actually fit me better. I don't have any comment on how the material lasts as yet, but it's a great fit, it is a little tight getting it over the hips but supportive (boobs and tummy) despite no wires - and I wanted a no wires swimsuit not only for pure swimming, but also for going under a wetsuit and reducing the risk of puncturing that with wires. I've also got the Speedo premiere ultimate sports swimsuit, which is wired, which is also a great fit.
