On behalf of my wife.
She indicates that the neck opening is way too small and finds it very difficult to put the suit on and take it off. She has the same size/style suit in Speedo and the neck opening is far larger and has more stretch. This makes the Spedo suit a breeze to get into and out of. The Dolfin ones are a real struggle. Personally she believes that the design is lacking in this area. Very disappointed and will purchase Speedo over Dolfin in the future.

Good, reasonably priced lap-swimming suit, but a little tighter than I am used to. I thought it would have gotten looser after wearing it for awhile, but it has not. Must be good quality material! For the price, it's good, but keep in mind it runs small.

This is a good practice suit, however I am not a big fan of the way it looks. It took twice as long to get the suit shipped to me. I like the suit, however not enough to be purchasing it again.

I like the high front coverage
Too Small- ended up returning this

I used the size chart to determine what size I should order. The fit on top is a bit snug, the fit on the bottom was off by about two sizes.

It fit ok, Its tight in the lower back but alittle big in the sholders. However I have found that to be the case with almost ALL compition suits. Hopeing to get a few years out of it..
The Ocean Solid for Women is the best value for economical swimmers. For 3 years I have been purchasing two suits a year to alternate use.
From other swimmers and swimsuit labels, I learned some wise advice tips:
1. Before wearing the first time; soak the new suit in a small tub with one tablespoon of vinegar in about a gallon of water to preserve the color fastness. Also, never wash your swimsuits in the washer. Gently wring the suit out by hand in a towel.
2. Wear after workout in the shower to rinse, then take off and lightly squeeze out the excess water; hang over a towel and by the next day it is dry.
The quality of the style makes it a comfortable suit that is very important to lap swimming daily practice. High enough neckline as well as the arms and legs and back are not binding. Overall, the suit encourages the motivated endurance swimmer.
Another wise tip:
3. I wear my Ocean under my clothes to drive to the pool; so I can swim sooner.
And a last tip:
4. Rinsing before entering the pool is good for the suit and swimmer to get used to the temperature of the water.
I hope this has helped those who love to swim to preserve their "swimsuitskins".

I have been swimming for over 25 years and have owned all brands of swimsuits except for this Ocean. I decided to try the Ocean brand and I was completely delighted! This is the most comfortable suit I have ever owned. It's like swimming with nothing on. I bought another one right away in a different color. This is not only a great suit for the price, it's a great suit period.

I have probably have owned about 10 of these suits. They are the best out there if you swim for recreational purposes. We swim about 3 times a week and these suits are fantastic for the price and for the longevity of them. Great product!

It is durable and very affordable. It is perfect for work outs.
I'm pleased with this suit - a great fit. However, it does not feature a shelf bra as stated but I did find the Lycra to be supportive enough alone.
Oceans of Thanks

I select the Ocean Practice suit for the comfort and wear qualities. I must order 2 at a time to rotate each week. Thank you for the value in the design of these suits. I will buy no other than Ocean.
Have a Great 2008!

This suit is fantastic. They last me about 6 months for swimming in a pool. I keep coming back for re-orders!!
