I use this to go swimming twice a week as part of a program to lose weight and get in shape. The first one I ordered I ordered according to the size chart and it was too big in the bust. The second one I ordered 1 size smaller and it fits perfectly. I love the fit even around some of my unsightly fat bumps.

Let me start off by saying I'm 6' and weigh about 305; I am aslo smaller in the chest (Lane Bryant jeans - 22/24, shirt - 18/20, bra - 44B). I swim an hour four times a week and need a durable suit. Unfortunately, it's impossible to find a quality tall plus, so I try to make due with what is available; which is what a lot of people my size do and the reason behind my review. **Hint hint, Speedo!**

I ordered a 24 - it was very roomy in the midsection and HUGE in the chest (and as you can imagine quite low). I think this suit would be fantastic for an "apple" shape, but doesn't work for a tall "pear".

Alas, if you're around my size; don't bother trying this one....

      Comments about SPEEDO Conservative Ultraback with Princess Seam Plus Size (20-24) - PowerFLEX:

      This suit fitted nicely from the waist down but is far too loose on top. The straps and breast support are not just loose, they don't even hug the body. Think baggy material that just pooches out at the sides and front. My body shape is proportional top to bottom and I am a full DD cup size. This suit was quite a disappointment because other Ultraback and powerFLEX suits fit just fine in the same exact size.

        In the reviews I read prior to purchasing, almost all of them said it was too low cut in the chest and they were right. It's not necessary to show cleavage while swimming laps. This is the one change that should be done: add another 1-2 inches of material to the chest area. Otherwise, it's a good fit for a large woman. It fits well and I'm comfortable doing laps, that's the main thing.

          Comments about SPEEDO Conservative Ultraback with Princess Seam Plus Size (20-24) - PowerFLEX:

          I swim two to three times a week, about a mile each day that I swim. I wear a size 24, and it has been difficult to find a suit that works for me.
          I like Speedo's conservative cut. It comes up high enough on top that I don't have worry about flashing others at the pool, and the leg openings are low enough that my tummy flab is not trying to fall out.
          The fabric is good. It has a good stretch to it while still retaining good support. The outer fabric and the lining are substantial enough to resist show-through.
          I love the suit, and I really like that it comes in colors besides black.
          The only thing I would change would be to make it about an inch longer.

          Comments about SPEEDO Conservative Ultraback with Princess Seam Plus Size (20-24) - PowerFLEX:

          I needed a suit to wear under my wetsuit for snorkeling. I'm 5'4, 210 lbs. 44(F cup)-39-47. I ordered a size 20 and it fits perfectly (actually a little large in the hips, but not baggy). It's almost impossible to find a plus-size suit without excessive padding, under-wires, surplus material, and other add-ons that bulge under the wetsuit. Well, this speedo is it! It's thin enough to wear with the wetsuit comfortably and stylish enough to wear alone for swimming laps or snorkeling in warmer water. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is the back. The straps, although comfortable and supportive, really enhance "back fat." This would be the perfect suit if it came in a U-back or if the straps were a little thicker.

          I couldn't find a bathing suit. I went to Speedo where they "get" swimming. They also "get" having larger sizes. Thanks for that Speedo.

          The suit is true to size and the perfect amount of bra coverage for me.

          Slight learning curve putting the Ultra Back on and off at first. LOVE this Suite.

            The suit is clearly well made. It is a little loose on top and is sort of low cut for lap swimming. I find I have to stop every couple of laps to adjust it. I'm just getting back into swimming, so it's not like I'm going to be racing or anything, but I think next time I will look for a higher cut suit.

                I ordered the suit based on my measurments. Hips and waist fit within the guidelines and fit perfectly. My bust measurement was smaller than what was listed and the fit was 4 sizes too big. Not the perfect suit for a pear shape. But pretty accurate to the size chart given.
