Swim laps 4-6 times a week. I really liked the competition suits that used to fit me. What I miss is the higher neckline so that I don't feel like I have to pull the top of the suit up after doing 2 laps. I wish it went closer to the collarbone so the water doesn't go down the front. Suit does fit me but I miss my competition suit with the higher neck. Also--I'm short and the straps are a little on the long side. I also miss the feel of the water on my lower back. Solution--I guess making the competition suits in larger sizes (beyond 38 or 40) OR design a suit for "mature" swimmers who have gained a little weight but still want the same kind of fit.

I lap swim about 1 hour, 3 or more times per week. LIKE: Fits good, like the moderate leg cut (doesn't ride up to your hip), full lining gives slimming fit. DON'T LIKE: Fades much faster and stretches faster as it ages than the same style did back in the 1990's despite prewetting in shower before use and rinsing with soap and water after use. The last suit purchased changed from navy blue to brown (suit and lining) after three 1-hour lap swims. I remember suits lasting through a year of use; now only about 4 months till stretchy. I hope Speedo will go back to making suits the way they used to and make them in the USA. Newest suit made it through first week of swimming 5 days without noticeable color fade.

    The suit I'd been wearing was discontinued. I e-mailed Speedo for help in finding a similar style and I received a reply with a great new style suggestion in just a couple minutes. I've never had a business get back to me so quickly, politely, and with the perfect replacement.

    Comments about SPEEDO Moderate Ultraback - PowerFLEX:

    I was disappointed that the top did not have more of a bra fit. Lining is very flimsy with no support. Previous purchases of similar Speedo bathing suits did have a bra-like structure which I thought this one would too.

          I am a lap swimmer 4x1hr+ a week. My first one of this style lasted 6 months before it stretched out and faded. My new one lasted a month. I do like how it comes higher up the back than most suits and holds me in place when the suit is new.

                I participate in aquatic fitness classes four times each week. It is necessary to have a flattering swimsuit that endures the effect of chlorinated water. It's only been two weeks but I hope this swimsuit provides 6 to 12 months of wear before needing to be replaced.

                    Comments about SPEEDO Moderate Ultraback - PowerFLEX:

                    Size 12 was great fit for me (5'4" 36DDD, size 10/12). Good top and rear coverage, but not very stylish - would be more attractive with slightly lower cut back and higher cut legs. Was great for lap swimming, but Xtra Life fabric did not live up to its name - I was disappointed that the pretty bright blue color faded so much within just a couple of months(wore 3-4x/week and rinsed thoroughly after each use).

                      The moderate leg openings do NOT ride up making it the perfect swimsuuit for doing water aerobics or laps.

                        I've been a lap swimmer for nearly 40 years, and this suit is the most reliable and comfortable one I've found. I like the ease of reordering.

                              These were my favorite suits for lap swimming but the fabric has changed and the size felt too small -even though I have been buying the same suit in the same size for YEARS - and in fact just lost 10 lbs. I don't know what to buy now.

                                          I am middle-aged and petite but don't look good in the suits with high-cut design in the thighs. I swim a lot and this is the only suit that I've been wearing in recent years. The quality is good and it holds up well. It seems to run small so I buy one size larger than my clothing size.

                                              Accurate and lovely shade of aqua and not to flashy bright. Matches the groovy aqua/patterned caps and the mirrored goggles perfectly. The fabric is top quality for the very reasonable price.I am certain this suit will never loose shape, fade or wear out.A few people complemented be on the suit right off.
