Quality seems good enough but the first time my daughter wore it, the seams dug into her skin and left red marks (near her collar bone where it come down from the shoulder) from moving her arms to swim. The seam is pretty thick. It is a little tight, because she is tall, but it shouldn't be that bad, and we were supposed to get it tight because she is on a swim team. I think it would have been fine with better seams. But of course, the other problem is that they don't put any actual sizing info on this page. The info the link goes to is completely irrelevant. Here is the sizing info from the tag:
This swimsuit fit perfectly on my 7 year old daughter from the front, but the back had too much fabric on the bottom which gave the swimsuit a saggy look even while dry. A friend's 6 year old daughter who is a similiar height tried it on and also had the same results. We ended up going with the Speedo Big Girls Pro LT Youth Superpro swimsuit, which had a much better fitting backside.
My daughter spends 3-4 days a week in a heavily chlorinated pool. All her previous suites faded very fast and started to thin out. This has lasted longer than all of them and still looks brand new. She swears it's more comfortable too. It was definitely worth the extra price.
Good fit and nice suit. I would have given 5 stars BUT it's worth noting that the seller DOES NOT pay for return shipping on refunds. I ordered 2 suits and had to return one because it runs VERY small (Dolfin HP Back Swim Girls 22-28) and the are deducting shipping from my refund.
Fantastic value for this brand - this type of suit works well for my slim but long bodies 10 year old. She's a 26. I also bought he 28 to grow into!
The shoulder straps chafe big time
Is a little big as my young swimmer is a half size. It is a well made piece and easy to hand wash and line dry!
Love it! It is a full 2 inches longer than other brands un-stretched while being just a narrow. It fits my long-torso daughter perfectly. Daughter is 58.5 inches tall, and is thin.
