Tips on choosing a fabric: If you are looking for durability, 100% Polyester is the #1 choice. Our Reliance® 100% Polyester fabric has remained strong in the competitive swimwear industry for over 20 years. Whether blended with Xtra Life Lycra® or by itself, polyester is the leading fabric for competitive swimwear. New technologies in polyester have improved the hand and feel of the material, allowing it to surpass other fabrics. Polyester holds its color and is resistant to chlorine.
Characteristics of polyester fabric are:
For comfort, lighter use of swimwear nylon blends are the way to go. Often blended with Spandex or Xtra Life Lycra® for elasticity.
Comfort, offers a lightweight, smooth fit. Quick-drying and low-water absorbency. Typically lower cost than polyester.
Has less resistance to prolonged sun exposure, and chlorine so fabric will fade much faster, lose shape than polyester. It’s just the nature of the different fibers! (To help, rinse with cool, fresh water after each use.)

I am absolutely in agreement with the last reviewer about the non-removable padded bra cups. They slide around like crazy during water exercise class. I thought I was buying the quality high neck back clasp Dolfin suit model that I had repeatedly bought, and loved, for years. But instead it’s a copy of the cheaper brand ridiculous padded cup swim suits available from some brands known for lower quality suits. Very, very disappointing.
I want to say that I also purchased the solid navy and black versions of high neck back clasp Dolfin suit currently available, and those suits had an opening wherein I could just reach in and pull out the stupid pads.
I also want to say that because I have loved this company for more than a decade, I wrote to the company customer service about this issue last month, in lieu of writing a negative review. They never answered. So here we are.
The description for this product is inaccurate. I was thrilled to find a plus sized suit that I could at least take the cups out of. (I have no idea why swim suit companies think women want foam pillows on their chest while swimming laps.) However, the pads are most certainly not removable. They are sewn in around all edges. If you wanted to remove them you would have to cut them out and then there would be no lining where your breasts are. In addition, they are sewn too low so when I tried on the suit, my breasts were above the cups and I had two bulky foam bulges on my abdomen. Finally, the clasp is nearly impossible to hook. The lip on the bottom of it catches on the seam of the loop. Besides these two problems, it's a lovely suit and I would even be willing to tolerate the clasp if I really could get rid of the pads.
