    I am 5'11"tall, 133 lbs. Many companies used to make long torso suits but no longer. Happily for me this one in a size 10L fits perfectly. The first one I bought lasted about 18 months of 1-3 x per week indoor pool use. This time I bought two suits just in case Speedo discontinues this model!

    I ordered the 14L & 16L (for long torso) & both were too big in the bust, too tight across the abdomen & way too short. I'm about 5'6" & weigh 125 lbs.

    The suits look to be good quality, nice styling. The bright blue is kind of electric, and I think I'd prefer the black. I just wish you would offer a suit that's sufficiently long. I have an old Speedo size 14 that worked for me for many years, but the fabric is now understandably disintegrating.

    Thanks for your generous return policy.

      SHELF BRA??? Speedo has no idea what a "shelf bra" is. In this suit it's just lining - NO support! Very disappointing.

      Comments about SPEEDO Moderate Ultraback (Long) - PowerFLEX™:

      I have worn this suit for years, for both lap swimming and for water aerobics. When I found the Long size which fits my 5'9" frame much better, I was thrilled. I no longer feel like the straps are digging into my shoulders now that I have a suit with a longer torso. My only gripe is that Speedo seems to have a different lining policy depending upon the color of the suit! Black suits are lined in front only--colored suits have been lined front and back. I found this to be a problem as the extra lining panel in the colored suit made it feel smaller--I had to return it and order the next size up. Although the black suit fits me in my usual size, it seemed to wear out faster (having no lining or reinforcement on the back side)! Beware if you sit on the edge of a concrete pool apron in this black suit with an unlined bottom! Overall, however, I think this suit is great once you have figured out your correct size and I recommend it for comfort. I have several of these suits that I rotate weekly so I'm not sure how long a suit lasts--maybe about a year?

          This is my go to suit for swimming laps. I've used these suits for years. I swim almost every day so I get two suits and alternate between the two each swim. I take really good care of my suits and they last me about a year. Again, this is with a lot of use. Even at the year mark, they're not completely useless, they've just started thinning a little and have lost a little of their shape. Will continue to use these as long as they continue to make them as well.

          The bra is very small. My older Speedo (same model) bra was about the same coverage as this new one...old one is a size 8L, this is a 10L. Bra should be more ample.

              It's almost impossible to find a long torso racerback that doesn't have a soft-cup bra. I was very happy to find this one, but I was concerned about the leg openings because I wanted a conservative cut. But the moderate style actually has good coverage, so I'm very pleased. It's great for us hard-to-fit pear shapes!

                      For my occassional lap swiimming I'd long used a suit very similar to this solid ultraback. When it was time to replace it - I searched around at the website and then decided to contact a speedo CS rep for assistance by describing my old suit and bingo: the rep emailed me back with the item I had been looking for. Same style & color availabe. And most importantly to me was that the item came in moderate L long sizing -an extra 2 in. for really good fit & comfort. My old suit was lined front & back w/ nylon Antron and the new suit is lined front only with nylon only - which is as close as what's currently available. It's a suit you can't go wrong with for all practical purposes.

                      I am 5'8", size 14, and this was the only suit in a long. I bought it for water exercise class. It was a good fit and perfect in many ways but I felt that coverage across the bust was too thin--no padding--and therefore, I returned it. I replaced it with the Linear Motion Ultraback that has a hydrabra and although not sized a long the replacement suit is adequate in length.
