I ordered this suit a size too small and I am glad I did as it fits perfrectly. My only complaint is that Speedo needs to make this suit a little higher on the bust line. Other than that I love that when I swim laps, I don't have to worry about straps falling off my shoulders.

I am 5' 6" tall and 226 pounds of weight. I lost 85 pounds. Because I cannot do high impact exercises I swim every day. I know that the Speedo swimsuits are excellent to practice swimming because their strips remains in place and the material is thin.

The only situation that I have is that I have fatty bags under the arms specifically towards the back. With this type of swimsuit the fatty bags tends to be noted more because of the Strips. I need one with more coverage in that area.

I decided to use it but I have to accommodate the bathing suit every time I get out of the water. I do not think that it is a problem of the product but I didn't choose the right one for my back situation.

Spanish Version
Mido 5' 6" de estatura y peso 226 libras. He perdido 85 libras de peso. Debido a que no puedo hacer ejercicios de alto impacto mi ejercicio diario es nadar. Sé que los trajes de baño Speedo son excelentes para practicar natación porque sus manguillos se mantienen en su lugar y el material es liviano.

La única situación que tengo es que tengo grasa bajo los brasos especificamente hacia la espalda. Este tipo de traje de baño tiende a hacerla notar mas porque en esa zona la tirilla es muy angosta. Necesito un traje de baño que cubra mas en esa zona.

Decidí utilizarlo pero tengo que acomodar el traje de baño cada vez que salgo del agua. No creo que sea un problema del producto sino que no elegí el correcto.

                Comments about SPEEDO Solid Moderate Ultraback Plus Size:

                I will be sending this back because of the poor coverage. The picture makes it look like it's cut high at the chest. I don't evan have a lot of cleavage and it was already VERY low cut on me - I don't want to know where it would end up by the time i was done swimming laps. Also, the way the back is cut is not at all flattering for plus size. again, you can't tell this from the picture - they should really use models to get a better idea. I really like the razorback straps for swimsuits so the straps don't fall down once the stretch starts to fade, but the way this suit is cut is too bare in the back for my comfort. Too bad becuase it seems like nice quality.

                      I order two of these suits every year as I swim in a pool 5 days a week. However, PLEASE do not put tags along the back seam! They itch and are irritating even when cut out.
                      The Speedo logo says it all. Print the size on the lining of the suit. No need for tags of any kind.

                      I love this suit, it really feels great swimming laps. Only one negative - I'm plus size and the front should be a bit higher. Way too much cleavage when the suit gets wet.

                          I am 5'1" and have a D cup breast with all the back fat. This is the 2nd Speedo suit I have bought. From just under the breast area down it fits great. Lots of coverage in the hip and butt. No riding up. I wish the breast area went around the back more to pull in more of the side fat, like a bra does. I bought both my speedos because of the racer back and best coverage I can find. Because I am short most of the dept store suits straps are too long. These are just perfect. Nice pattern fabric would be good for choices too.

                          It's an okay suit. Very low cut on the thighs. I think it will do the trick for casual swim and wearing for water activities like rafting. Not winning any beauty contests with this one but that's not really what I'm looking for. And as a side note (which I think another reviewer mentioned) the price tag on the suit is lower than what you'll pay online. Seriously, Speedo? It makes me question the integrity of the company and whether I'd order from them again.

                            I got this suit for my daughter and she loves it. It looks good on her. She uses it to lap swim and it works great in the pool.

                              My daughter loved the suit. We actually received a defective suit the first time. I called Speedo to get a replacement and received THE BEST CUSTOMER SERVICE ever! They sent out the new suit, which I received the next day. Excellent experience! The suit fits great and looks great.

                                I am 5' 6" tall and 226 pounds of weight. I lost 85 pounds. Because I cannot do high impact exercises I swim every day. I know that the Speedo swimsuits are excellent to practice swimming because their strips remains in place and the material is thin.

                                The only situation that I have is that I have fatty bags under the arms specifically towards the back. With this type of swimsuit the fatty bags tends to be noted more because of the Strips. I need one with more coverage in that area.

                                I decided to use it but I have to accommodate the bathing suit every time I get out of the water. I do not think that it is a problem of the product but I didn't choose the right one for my back situation.

                                Mido 5' 6" de estatura y peso 226 libras. He perdido 85 libras de peso. Debido a que no puedo hacer ejercicios de alto impacto mi ejercicio diario es nadar. Sé que los trajes de baño Speedo son excelentes para practicar natación porque sus manguillos se mantienen en su lugar y el material es liviano.

                                La única situación que tengo es que tengo grasa bajo los brasos especificamente hacia la espalda. Este tipo de traje de baño tiende a hacerla notar mas porque en esa zona la tirilla es muy angosta. Necesito un traje de baño que cubra mas en esa zona.

                                Decidí utilizarlo pero tengo que acomodar el traje de baño cada vez que salgo del agua. No creo que sea un problema del producto sino que no elegí el correcto.

                                  I had bought this to wear in a triathalon. The sizing was larger than what I needed and there was not enough time for me to exchange it. It didn't fit right in places that needed to be tight fitting.

                                    I love this swimsuit. It doesn't have that usual plus size boxy shaping. It holds you in but is still very lightweight and does not restrict your movements while exercising. It does run large, if you're short waisted, I would buy the smaller size.
