I swim 3-5 days a week for 50 minutes each time. The suit is very comfortable. I like the coverage hydrobra gives. But it does moves around when I use the swimsuit wringer to dry it. So i have to readjust the bra before each use, but that's not too big of a deal. This is the most flattering cut and design (the way the stripes run down the side) out of all the other suits i tried, alot more so than the the speedo with the splicing on the side that claims to give a slimming affect (which it didn't). I can tell the material will last a long time. I ordered another speedo suit to just switch up days of use, but i have a feeling I will be ordering another one of these pretty soon. As long as speedo continues to sell these, i feel like this will be my favorite.

I have been buying Quantum Splice suits for years in a size 38. They always fit and looked great. Suddenly in the spring of 2011 the fit on the bottom of the suit changed drastically. The bottom part of the suit is now cut at least 2 sizes smaller than before. A 38 fits like a 34. I now have to purchase a size 40 to even get the suit on, but the top on the 40 is too large. The new cut is very uncomfortable and is unflattering on the body.

    I use 5 times a week for lap/exercise swimming and sunbathing. I have worn this suit/style for about 14 years and keep going back to the same style. I'm buying a new one this year as the one I've had for 14 years is beginning to wear thin. This suit is very flattering - I'm 65.

      Comments about SPEEDO Quantum Splice Super Pro Back:

      I had rather high expectations for this design based on photos only.
      I'm short, athletic, like tight and lasting suits, with good coverage, in a style that elongates my torso. This suit meets all those criteria for me. The stripes are very well positioned and nicely curving; like that it's a double thin/thick stripe.
      I found several of the previous reviews very useful. I ended up ordering a size larger than usual - this one fits well and is comfortable. I could not put on a suit in my regular size; I estimate that this is almost a size (about 3/4- size) smaller/narrower in the hip than usual.
      The quality is great, as usual.
      Very happy with this purchase.

        Comments about SPEEDO Quantum Splice Super Pro Back:

        I have been the same Speedo size for over 15 years. Based on the other reviews, I ordered a size up. The suit fit for the first week, but after 1 week of lap swimming is clearly too big. The straps have stretched out and the bust is too big. The butt does run small though, because I hardly have a butt and the butt still fits. Its too late for me to return this suit for a better size. Ultimately I think the design on this one isn't the best...

          Comments about SPEEDO Quantum Splice Super Pro Back:

          In summer 2010 I bought the green version of this suit and loved it to death. It fit well in the bust and butt, was slimming, looked great, held me well, and was overall an excellent suit. I used it primarily for nearly daily lap swimming, but also just casual swimming like at the beach.

          Now that my first was wearing out, I decided to go buy another one. I got the same size as my current one and was shocked to see my butt sticking out both sides with major reduction on coverage both in the rear and chest. It was as though an inch was cut off of each side of the rear and a half inch off the bust. A size up did fit a bit better, but the bust began to lose the snugness I need for the lap swimming I do. I was ready to buy two suits to last me, but could not because of the aforementioned problems.

          Very disappointed that the suit I loved so much is gone. Please bring back the old cut!

            I read other comments that said they changed the cut of this suit. This is my second or third quantum purchase, and I too, feel they changed the cut a little. There seems to be less coverage in the rear. However, it is still wearable. I just feel a little less covered. Still high quality and attractive style.

                I'm a size 10 and according to the chart a size 36 should have been fine. But it wasn't! The suit was way too small - like a size 6 and boy oh boy was it skimpy. I would not have been comfortable wearing this at my local YMCA. A bikini would have provided me more coverage. I had to return it. Will try another Speedo as I like the quality.

                  Tis suit is awesome. It fits me sooooo well and I use it 2-3 times a week for lap swimming. It is dry by the time I stretch Fter my swim and I can put it directly into my bag after changing, no swim suit dryer required!

                  The pool I swim in has a ridiculously high amount of chlorine and in the past I have noticed fading by this point. The color is still e same as the day I bought it. Definitely getting Lycra in the future.

                      It is good to see others remark the fit has changed. I too wore this suit for years and found my recent purchase would not go over my hips even though my body has not changed. I thought they resized it and so I bought the 38 instead of 36. Big mistake. It is too big in the water. Speedo customer service couldn't imaging what the problem could be. What other suit should I buy that has the same fit as before?

                          I wanted to love this suit but I have to agree with an earlier reviewer that the bottom is cut much smaller than it should be in proportion to the top. I am a D cup and the top wasn't even a little bit tight while the bottom was absurdly small. Sizing up wouldn't have fixed it as the top would just have been too big. Returned it.

                              I swim 3-5 days a week for 50 minutes each time. The suit is very comfortable. I like the coverage hydrobra gives. But it does moves around when I use the swimsuit wringer to dry it. So i have to readjust the bra before each use, but that's not too big of a deal. This is the most flattering cut and design (the way the stripes run down the side) out of all the other suits i tried, alot more so than the the speedo with the splicing on the side that claims to give a slimming affect (which it didn't). I can tell the material will last a long time. I ordered another speedo suit to just switch up days of use, but i have a feeling I will be ordering another one of these pretty soon. As long as speedo continues to sell these, i feel like this will be my favorite.

                                Bought two of these to use in my aqua aerobics class. I bought one of these over five years ago. Holds us well and is very attractive. Striping makes waist look smaller.

                                      I have been buying Quantum Splice suits for years in a size 38. They always fit and looked great. Suddenly in the spring of 2011 the fit on the bottom of the suit changed drastically. The bottom part of the suit is now cut at least 2 sizes smaller than before. A 38 fits like a 34. I now have to purchase a size 40 to even get the suit on, but the top on the 40 is too large. The new cut is very uncomfortable and is unflattering on the body.
