    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.

      As I am 5 ' 10" and weigh 140 lbs I have had to go up a size in the past to find a suit comfortable enough. They end up baggy pretty soon and fit poorly. This suit solves the problem for me.

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

        I was looking for a suit for water exercise class. I'm 5'10", 135#. Ordered a 14L because I could not find anything to fit. This suit is long enough, does not pull at the shoulders. It is snug through the torso, so a true 14 could not wear this (I wear size 8 or 10). It only has a shelf bra, would have liked something a little more, but works for my purpose. All in all, I'm happy with this swimsuit.

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

          I got these suits (I'm dieting, so I got my current size, and another for when I need a smaller one!) to replace my old Speedo for lap swimming. It was looking VERY sad, and the outer layer was extremely stretched out!

          I love that the suits are available in the Long size, makes for a much more comfortable fit. This suit so far is really sturdy and well-made. I got the purple one, despite someone else saying it faded quickly to pink. I've been using it for 2-3 weeks, and the color is holding up just fine!

          Since getting the new one, my sprints are about 5 seconds faster than they were! Nothing else has changed, so I guess my old suit was really slowing me down =)

          I received the suits VERY quickly, very pleased with my entire experience.

            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.

                    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!

                      I'm almost 6' tall and this is one of the true " long" torso suits out there. Wish this suit came in prints too!

                        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!

                            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.

                                I am a tall (5' 10") and so it has been tough to find a sport suit long enough. This one was perfect!
