Can anyone recommend me a longer length swimsuit? Preferably with a racer back.
Long tall Sally has a couple but the reviews are mixed.
I currently have a zoggs one but it's not a racer back.

Speedo do one long torso style in a few different colours. I think it has a racer back.

I had a good thread on this, but can't find it now. M&S do a longer length.My issue was I needed longer and a bit of bust support. At the moment I have an Aquasphere suit, I've sized up, I'm a 14, but think it's a 40.

A few suggestions here...

Lands' End do a long length. They haven't got much in at the moment so no racer backs but I expect they'll get more styles.

I was on the other thread and this is what I bought:

Not got a racer back though. I sized up in it.

I wear long tall sally ones (everything else goes up my backside!) and they are fine. I'm not a frequent swimmer, but they seem as good as any!

M&S do a decent long torso one at the moment (navy). I got it as it is long enough to cover my (giant) boobs.

I also use long tall sally and not had a problem apart from making sure you size down.

Thanks for all these suggestions, had forgotten I'd posted. Will take a look.

I ended up buying a speedo Women's winner clip back swimsuit. I am pleased with it and it is comfortable but could do with being a tiny bit longer for me.

Following with interest, as I've previously had to go up (at least!) two sizes in Speedo for it not to dig into my shoulders/undercarriage: suit ends up more or less fitting but I think I could do better.

I have a great "long torso" one by an Australian brand called Black Milk, but it's not a racer back. (it is, however, Wonder Woman themed so my children love it)

I am very long in the body & find Slazenger (Sports direct do them) are great. They are cheap - well under £15 & I swim 3 x a week & they last me about 9months to a year.

Michael Phelps do long ladies styles
