my Speedo Flow Active Crossback was starting to chafe me between the suit and my inner upper arms, so i ordered this Illusion Splice Ultraback and, viola, no more chafing! having had 3 rotator cuff repairs, i can no longer do overhead strokes, including butterfly, freestyle, and backstroke; however, i still do the strokes i was taught in lifeguard training 30+ years ago -- "approach stroking" (a modified breaststroke) and "lifesaving stroke" (a modified sidestroke); these summer, i've added the "Combat Swimmer Stroke" that US Navy Seals do for long-distance swims; so, these strokes result in alot of suit-skin contact between my arms but, even though i now swim 1 mile every day for the past month, i have no chafing!

Everything I could want in a suit for regular lap swim, pool play and snorkeling EXCEPT when you get out of the water, the small bra cups are very evident though the outer material. I've tried ordering a second suit thinking the first was goofy but they're both just the same. Our topnotch seamstress thought it was too tricky to add an inner layer but I'll ask her again...

      I'm 5'2 and about 125# with a D cup and the size 6 fit well on me. It provides decent support and good coverage in the chest area. Feels comfortable when swimming laps. The fabric feels like it is of good quality.

          Had bought this suit in size 16 in the past, and not sure why this time the suit didn't fit. Really liked the suit looked on and holds up well. The other 2 suits that are 16's fit.

            Comments about Speedo Illusion Splice Ultraback - PowerFLEX:

            Overall quality good, as expected from Speedo. Fit is good, and the "moderate" coverage is just right. The only problem, the arm holes are cut a little too high in the front, resulting in chafing with certain swim strokes.

                    This is my second purchase of this suit. I must admit I did not take as good care of the first suit, as I should have, it still lasted several years.
                    Great suit for lap swims.

                      I've had issue w/ other Speedo swim suit holding up to a 3x week swimmer in a YMCA pool and all the chlorine. One month in and this ones seems good. But I will keep an eye on it

                        This is a great suit so far for water aerobics and aqua jogging. The suit really holds
                        in place and I do not have to worry about tugging at the suit to keep it in place. My hope is that it will hold up over time with constant use and the chlorine. If it does, I will keep buying this suit for life.

                          I wear this product for water exercise. I am 64 years old and this suit makes me feel and look younger. It holds in at all the right places, easy to get on and off, and moves with your body as you move in the water.
                          I have owned several of the same suit in different colors. Although, chlorine resistant, my only wish is that it would last forever!

                              I am plus sized and ordered a number of Speedos fitness suits to try on at home because I couldn't find them in my size locally. My need is for a lap swimming suit. I ordered a size 18 and this felt pretty true to size. The back was a little low and the straps cut across at just the wrong height for me, accentuating things I don't want accentuated. The chest area was the weird spot. I am not a long torso by any means, but the sewn-in cups were way too low to match up with my anatomy. It squished me down but looked baggy. Cute suit, but the fit was just way off for me.

                                  I'm very happy with this suit. The lining is a bit overgenerous, which takes away from the comfort level somewhat, but that's a minor complaint.

                                        So, when wearing the suit, how far up are the leg cuts, the openings? I'm looking at this for a more modest swimsuit, so that would Kind of defeat the purpose if it were too high.

                                          This suit has a moderate leg cut and should fit approximately 1" below your hip bone.
