I absolutely love the style and fit of this swimsuit. It provides excellent support and shape definition, keeping everything in place when lane swimming. It even fits over my wide hips, despite me choosing my actual back size rather than sizing up, as is often needed. I would hands-down buy this over any other swimsuit if it weren't for the consistent problems with the fabric disintegrating. This is my second swimsuit of this style, a replacement that was sent after the first one became unwearable after only a few months. This one technically only lasted about 2 months since I hadn't used it much before the Covid-19 lockdown. Still, when I went back to the pool, I found that huge patches of the fabric had perished, leaving white elastic fluff everywhere and huge, embarrassing, transparent patches all the way down the back to the butt and across the chest. (the first one was down the back and under the bust)
I take care of my swimsuits, I rinse them after each swim and wash them by hand when needed, store them with plenty of air circulating. The issue is with the fabric, and has been noticed by others. If Speedo can fix this, I will buy the style again, but for now I'll have to make do with something less flattering and supportive. A real shame as I thought I'd found the perfect swimsuit.
