This review is from: Speedo Race Xtra Life Lycra Quantum Splice Superpro Swimsuit (Apparel)]We really love our Speedo products, but this one was a racer suit.The size chart for these are so confusing.We took the measurements that we thought were appropriate, and the suit was still way way too small.I realize racer suits are a tighter fitting suit, but the suit was for our twelve year old.It would have fit our 8 year old snug!Anyway, we really love Speedo, just be careful with their racer sizing charts.Buy bigger than the measurements!!Was this review helpful to you? | Comment (1) 20 of 20 people found the following review helpful Serves its purpose, June1, 2009ByJenny Lind (Marlborough, MA)-This review is from: Speedo Race Xtra Life Lycra Quantum Splice Superpro Swimsuit (Apparel)]I bought this for lap swimming ~once per week. Definitely agree with those saying it runs small. Im a size 4 and thought I wouldtake a 34 but I couldnt get the suit on. Exchanged for a 36 which was still tight but you dont notice once youre in the water. Ifollowed the care instructions and the suit lasted me a good two years. Looks good too. Will buy again.83 of 84 people found the following review helpful Fantastic suit!Competitive swimmers, ignore the other sizing reviews., July 3, 2009ByJessie-Amazon Verified Purchase(Whats this?)This review is from: Speedo Race Xtra Life Lycra Quantum Splice Superpro Swimsuit (Apparel)]As a former competitive swimmer, Im accustomed to Speedo products.Regardless, I ordered a size larger than I normally do, due to the reviews listed here and had to return it.I wear a size 8-10 in regular clothing.A 40 swimsuit was ridiculous on me.I needed a 36 for a comfortable practice suit-NOT competition tightness.Ladies, proper fitment of a Speedo swimsuit may not bewhat you are used to.The legs are cut extremely high-a couple inches away from your natural waist.It does not follow your hipline.Hike up that suit!I promise you wont fall out or have a super wedgie.Once you get the legs in the proper place, the rest of the suit should feel snug.Thats a good fit for a practice suit.A competitive suit will be 2 sizes smaller than snug. ;)As soon as the suit gets wet, it will stretch.It will also stretch with frequent wear.If you order a suit that feels comfortably loose while dry, it will become saggy and loose in the pool.This will cause drag and discomfort as you feel the suit swish around your body while swimming.This is a great suit with anextremely flattering design.After gaining a few pounds since my competitive days, I will say that this suit makes me look fantastic.Any extra "pooches" around the waist are rendered invisible by the dark background, while attention is drawn to the lighter areas,visually slimming you down.
