Totally recommend!. It's really compact and effective! I have been using it to tone my thighs and my arms.
This swimsuit is awesome! I got so many compliments on the strappy back & it fit well! Fabric is comfortable and soft!.
I don't know how long this pair will last but when they give out, I will replace them with the same one! Update: 10/17/2012After using this swim suit for 6 months, this is the hands down winner for the pool. . The material seems to hold up really well to the chlorine in the pool. They also dry very quickly. I am a beginner swimmer and am training for an Ironman. My very expensive Zoot triathlon shorts are getting faded by the chlorine and chemical in the pool. This short on the other hand has not. It also dries exceptionally quickly. The I am logging around 5 hours a week in the pool and it is holding up extremely well. Not knowing anything about swimming shorts, I bought these based on the recommendations that I read on Aikiki. . still look new! I will absolutely buy another when the time comes. These didn't disappoint. They fit and look great on.
The padding shows a bit on the light colors but I don't personally exercise without a shirt often and even if I did I don't think people should be paying attention to if my padding is showing or not anyway lol. I exercise at home for 30-60 minutes and having 5 bras that fit well and I can machine wash for each day of the week is great. I'm a 36dd and I ordered the XL and it fits and holds pretty great. They sort of give me uniboob but for 5 for under $30 I think it's a great price.
Great deal. Will buy again. Bras lasted me a year or so last time I bought them. Definitely a good purchase.
