I have had wonderful experience with Albion and was excited about purchasing this new suit. I purchased the dark navy color with the white criss-cross. However, upon wearing it for the first couple of times, I noticed that the fabric got little nicks and tears in it extremely easily (and I was only laying out on a beach—I wasn’t doing anything that should have caused this!) When I initially purchased the suit there were already a couple scratches in the material, so I was given a discount. However, now there are several noticeable scratches in the material. I have never had this issue with my other Albion suits, so I wonder if the fabric is slightly different in this one. It almost seems too silky to hold up well. It is a cute suit, but maybe buy it in a different color so scratches won’t show up like they did in mine. Or buy a different one. For that much money, I wish it was longer lasting and still looked new:/
super cute but the zipper on the back is tricky. I had to keep asking someone to unzip me every time I needed to go to the bathroom. I wore it to lake powell so was in it all day. If you are only going to be in it for an hour it works but not over an hour.
This is my favorite style suit. Just love how it flatters and covers my bum! Thanks for keeping this suit modest. I tell everyone about you!
I am 5’0 120lbs with an athletic build (and a tummy); this suit was not for me. I didn’t realize how much back fat I have until I tried this on. I bought a small and a medium may have been better, but even going up a size, I don’t think it would look any better.
I love everything about this suit. It is functional, fits well, and is very flattering. It is high quality and I'm sure I'll be wearing it for years to come. The color looks more dark blue rather than black, but I really like it that way. There is padding but not really any built in support, however the suit fits me well enough that it is not a problem. This is my new favorite suit.
