This is a splendid product - fits well, feels comfortable and lasts well. The advice about how to remove water after swimming seems important. I used 'wringing' with the first ones I got and the elastane did seem to suffer. Now I follow the advice to squeeze out the water and that seem to prevent damage. Also take a measuring tape when buying: the size is somewhat variable depending in part on where they have been made. But I am a real supporter - it's a great choice!
