So far, this is holding up well to the chlorine etc. Sizing runs quite small in the cup - I could really have gone up at least one cup size, but due to the lack of wires and wanting to use it I just opted to keep the size I got. Perhaps as a result of this, I found it to be quite flattening which isn't the best of looks - although at least it keeps everything under control when trying to swim lengths! The 36 seems to be a fairly true to size 14/16 in the body and, as others have mentioned, quite short (but as I have a short torso this is one of the things which attracted me to this swimsuit). It has a nice low leg and good coverage. Not particularly stylish, but for the intended purpose of swimming for fitness it's ideal.
