I purchased this product to use for a charity swim. It fits great and is very comfortable. My only suggestion is to put a better quality shoulder strap on the suit rather than plain elastic. The price is right and with improvements to the shoulder straps, it will be up to par with the quality we expect from Speedo. I would even pay a little more for better straps.

I am a 5 day-a-week lap swimmer. I rotate 2 suits. Usually I buy Speedo Learn to Swim Super Pro Back. I like that style because it is comfortable and fits great. Nothing rubs or interferes with swimming. Have never had any problems with that style except. like all suits, it gets baggy, thin and faded too quickly.

At 54, however, I would like a little more modesty. Nobody wants to see my cellulite - not even me. So I was happy to see the new PowerPlus Kneeskin. Unfortunately it has not worked out so well.

On the plus side, it is true to size and does fit exactly like the other Speedo suit I'm used to buying. BUT

- The straps are just wide elastic. If they stretch out, which they will, the straps are going to fall down.

- There are 2 raised seams under the arms. I didn't feel it while I was swimming but they rubbed the skin raw. This was super-annoying at work afterward because I could feel it every time my blouse moved against those two spots. I now have to wear bandaids over them to wear the suit. I looked at my old normal Speedo and these seams are not present. The thing that kills me is that they are not even necessary seams. They are just there to connect the multiple fabric colors. So now, since I've worn it, I'm stuck with a $100 suit I have to put on bandaids to use.

- Something else to consider that is not the suit's fault: you can't make a quick pit stop. The whole suit has to come down.

      The suit is great. So much more modest than a regular practice suit. My only complaint is the flimsy straps. They are of a cheap material and I'm worried they will wear out quickly and stretch.

            Excellent value this is the 4th one I've purchased. One time 2 years ago I bought a similar-priced suit from another manufacturer - and the Speedo suit lasts WAY longer hands down. I swim about 3 hours a week and this suit holds up! I know there are some complaints about the elastic straps but I prefer them because it's so much easier to get it on and off. Would like this suit offered with purple contrast color.

                I use this suit to swim laps at a community pool. I am in my 50's appreciate the extended coverage. It makes it so comfortable to wear in and outside the pool. Thoroughly love this suit--it is my second.

                Comments about Speedo PowerPLUS Kneeskin:

                I purchased this kneeskin in lieu of a tech because there were more color options with this knee skin, unlike most of the tech suits. And it was less expensive than the tech suits that do offer different color options. I have a couple of complaints though about the suit. My first complaint is about the straps. Although nice and wide, the straps are already stretching out after only using this suit 3 times. Also, I would personally prefer a little bit more coverage on the sides at the chest, near the armpit area. That is just a personal preference though. I find myself pulling the suit up when I reach the end of a drill set. Part of that has to do with the straps stretching out, and the other part has to do with the feeling of lack of coverage at the side of the chest area by the armpits.

                I am contemplating buying another one of these suits in a different color for my lap swimming, but I'm going to wait to see how much longer this suit will last. And if I can figure out a way to fix the straps.

                The issues with the straps and the coverage area is why I rated it a 3. If the straps alone would not stretch out, the rating would be much higher. Otherwise, this is a nice suit

                On a positive note, I like how the lining is thin in the power skin. I have a swimming unitard (different brand) that is fully lined, and is absolutely heavy when soaked! This suit, even with its lining, is still nice and light after getting soaked. Plus, it provides nice compression over the body for the muscle.

                  I ordered 3 different suits from different brands prior to this one. All the others got sent back due to innacurate size charts, ridiculously thin material, and grossly overpriced suits that obviously would not last long. I swim laps 3 days/week for 1 hr/day. I do not race, but swim for fitness. If you do the same, you will be pleased with this suit. If it helps, I am 5 ft, 6 in, 115 lbs and a size 32 was perfect. The suit is comfortable and I highly recommend it.

                          Just tried this first time today. It was a little hard to get on, but fine once I did. The straps are weird. It's hard to see in the picture, but the ones that go over your shoulders are flat, simple elastic. I don't know why they are not lycra/spandex like the rest of the suit. I certainly hope they don't wear out sooner than the suit. The great thing about the suit is that it appears to make me faster. My average on 100 free dropped by several seconds and I haven't been training. The bummer is that it's not terribly flattering. I think different colors or designs or possibly stitching could make it look nicer. I just want a suit I can swim in and not bare my thighs to the world, and this does the job. But I'd rather have more color options - and normal straps.

                          I purchased this product to use for a charity swim. It fits great and is very comfortable. My only suggestion is to put a better quality shoulder strap on the suit rather than plain elastic. The price is right and with improvements to the shoulder straps, it will be up to par with the quality we expect from Speedo. I would even pay a little more for better straps.

                              I am a 5 day-a-week lap swimmer. I rotate 2 suits. Usually I buy Speedo Learn to Swim Super Pro Back. I like that style because it is comfortable and fits great. Nothing rubs or interferes with swimming. Have never had any problems with that style except. like all suits, it gets baggy, thin and faded too quickly.

                              At 54, however, I would like a little more modesty. Nobody wants to see my cellulite - not even me. So I was happy to see the new PowerPlus Kneeskin. Unfortunately it has not worked out so well.

                              On the plus side, it is true to size and does fit exactly like the other Speedo suit I'm used to buying. BUT

                              - The straps are just wide elastic. If they stretch out, which they will, the straps are going to fall down.

                              - There are 2 raised seams under the arms. I didn't feel it while I was swimming but they rubbed the skin raw. This was super-annoying at work afterward because I could feel it every time my blouse moved against those two spots. I now have to wear bandaids over them to wear the suit. I looked at my old normal Speedo and these seams are not present. The thing that kills me is that they are not even necessary seams. They are just there to connect the multiple fabric colors. So now, since I've worn it, I'm stuck with a $100 suit I have to put on bandaids to use.

                              - Something else to consider that is not the suit's fault: you can't make a quick pit stop. The whole suit has to come down.
