I lifeguard and teach swim lessons a few days a week in this swimsuit. I have had it for 8-9 months now and it has held up great! All of the stitching is intact, the color is still bright, and most importantly it has not stretched out. The font doesn't peel off and the butt has black lining in it as well as the rest of the suit. Several of my coworkers own this suit now too, per my suggestion. For $15 it is an amazing find. Definitely far better than my TYR and Speedo guard suits! Highly recommend!
