Great suit for plus size gals. I really like the slight modesty draping, lovely for those days when you feel like a bit more coverage. As a serious swimmer I expect my suits to hold up well in both chlorinated and ocean water and through repeated washings - this suit holds up well even in chlorine. The negative is the halter top buckle closing - absolutely horrible and very difficult in the winter when your hands might not be at their supple best. You do really need a second person to buckle you into this suit to fit securely. I wish they would make this suit with regular straps - it would be positively perfect and I would buy another one in a heartbeat. I would recommend this to someone who can move their arms way behind their head well, if you have any arthritis in your shoulders or hands it is virtually impossible to get on.
