    I got this suit because I wanted a professional swimming suit. The quality is very nice and the fabric is strong. The only problem I encountered was that the Medium is smaller than what the sizing chart says. I measured myself when I bought the suit and I matched a medium, but the suit is definitely tight. The fabric also does not stretch very much, so it's tighter than I would like. But once I have it on, it's very flattering and comfortable. I have not had a chance to try it out yet in the water. Need to lose a few pounds first.

    The fit is fine, and I think the suit would be good for someone else, but the legs are cut slightly too low to be very flattering. Also, I think the fabric in the back (the butt part, really), comes up too high on the spine to be flattering--there's too much coverage. If this were the Ultraback Moderate, I'd say it was great. But it isn't the Moderate version--it's the Contemporary, which is supposed to be a little edgier. It seems like a well-made suit, but edgy it is not.

      Comments about SPEEDO Solid Contemporary Ultraback:

      I have been buying this suit for years, I always have 4 or 5 different colors in this style. Yes, they do fade if this is your only suit you wear day in and day out. I am in the water daily from May through September so it makes sense to have several of these. I have a problem with other suits. I so hate the bras in most suits today. They never fit me. The stretch band in the bust area works well for me. Good job Speedo, please don't discontinue this one :)

        Comments about SPEEDO Solid Contemporary Ultraback:

        At my age, I need a good bra in the water, but I want a performance suit that, other than the built in bra, looks exactly like the racing suits made for younger women. I want a high cut on the leg, lower cut in the back.

        I agree with another reviewer "comes up too high on the spine to be flattering--there's too much coverage. It seems like a well-made suit, but edgy it is not."

        Please provide some options for those of us former competitive racers who want the same suits but with bra.

              I have been wearing this suit for DECADES! I swim laps 5-7 days per week, & this suit is the BEST! The shelf bra gives enough support & shaping, the leg is flattering but not too revealing, & you don't even feel the straps. Speedo, please never stop producing this suit!

                  Comments about SPEEDO Solid Contemporary Ultraback:

                  I bought this suit to use for fitness swimming. I swim laps 2-3 times per week. It's a great lap suit. I would say, though, that as a woman who's not so well-endowed up top, it's not the best-fitting suit. This suit is for someone who has a bigger cup size than me. I have some extra fabric at the sides that's just a little odd looking/feeling. And the elastic bra shelf in the liner is not so comfortable for me. However, if you have a C cup or larger, this may be just the suit for you if you want or need the extra room and support.

                    Comments about SPEEDO Solid Contemporary Ultraback:

                    I like swimming as a dailynexercise either in a pool or the ocean. I need a bathing suit that is made for movement and can take regular wearing in chlorinated or salt water.

                    I was surprised when this fit, but a nearly identical style did not in several sizes.

                    I did not notice a Made in the USA tag. Whether it is a US company or not, a percentage should be made where you sell them.

                    Would you rather pay shipping and import taxes than pay workers and buy goodwill?

                          Admittedly I haven't taken it out for a spin yet but I have put it on and I love the cut and the fit. Very flattering. I'm 5'3" and need to slim down quite a bit (getting back into lap swimming). So I had to go for the 16. No suit is going to make me look skinny but this one makes a good effort. Comfortable, leg cut is flattering, feels sleek on the body. It makes me want to hop in the pool right now. I got it in black and just ordered 2 more - marine and fuschia. Will report back on how it holds up.

                          In the pool 3 days a week,but the clorine has discolored parts of the suit. Suit is great.
                          I do water arobics and water walking.

                          I swim an hour daily 4x and this suit stands up for 3 to 4 months. I am size 14 and DDD and it fits with no pulling and good coverage. Lining is solid and shelf bra gives some support. Not that exciting but also not a "grandma" suit (nothing against grandmas really!)

                                  The fit is fine, and I think the suit would be good for someone else, but the legs are cut slightly too low to be very flattering. Also, I think the fabric in the back (the butt part, really), comes up too high on the spine to be flattering--there's too much coverage. If this were the Ultraback Moderate, I'd say it was great. But it isn't the Moderate version--it's the Contemporary, which is supposed to be a little edgier. It seems like a well-made suit, but edgy it is not.

                                  I'm a regular lap swimmer, so my suit is in chlorine a lot. I only wish I could get a few more months out of a suit. Otherwise, it is perfect. It fits so well that I never feel it or adjust it, etc. I always choose the suits lined both front and back due to not wanting to wear a transparent suit one day when I don't realize how worn out my suit really is.

                                    This suit is great, this is my third of this same suit. Great fit, and flattering. This is one of the few suits that I can find that has the built in bra (not hydro bra) impossible to tell that this is part of the suit which is great. I love the contemporary leg styling which seems to be difficult to find in a suit that also has the built in bra. Not a racer back which is great, I'm 50 and in good shape, this strap style seems to look much better on me than the racer back style. I would highly recommend this suit.

                                      I purchased the suit for lap swimming. The suit is attractive however, I was hoping for more of a cup type bra rather than a shelf style. I am rather large busted so the cup style bra is a much better fit. Also, the coverage on the sides was insufficient. I will try another style.

                                        This one piece suit is perfect. It fits very snug to the body, which at the beginning made me think it was too small, but after getting in the pool I realized how great the fit was. It hold everything in place without making you feel like your showing too much. It is very comfortable and very sexy, shows your curves. You cannot go wrong with this one!
