Pleasently surprised - Updated
on 10 November 2011
I ordered this item despite an earlier reviewer relating some problems with his purchase. My version seems to have undergone some subtle changes to the way it is put together, resulting in a more robust product. These are comfortable, fit well, appear to be well made and so far, are wearing well. I also think they look good and I like the slinky material. Mainly worn in the steam room after gym sessions rather than in the pool, I have not subjected the material to chlorinated water. Probably more suited to "poolside posing" than serious swimming, I actually like them and may well try another colour.
This is an update to my previous review, and is based on a second purchase in another colour (Blue). The material is not the same as my previous pair (in black), and the make-up is different. I'm really disappointed with this item. Only worn two or three times,they are falling apart at the seams already, and they have never been in chlorinated water. I've reduced my star rating from four to three for this item, which is a shame as my original black ones are still fine.
Recently ordered another pair in black again. None of the problems I experienced with the other colour, probably due to the different material, and my original black ones are still wearing very well.
Happy again, and we're back up to four stars!
