The Octopus swimsuit ad caught my eye, and although I'm typically partial to solid black, I ordered it. (They say I'm the first person in the U.S. to have one; can that be true? whoa.) It's JUST as adorable in real life as it is in the photo, and so far it's the only suit I've worn in my daily Monterey Bay dips. Comfortable, fun, the straps are perfectly positioned for ease of movement, the fabric quality is superb, and the construction is impeccable. Thank you so much for both the whimsy and the quality!
High quality swimsuit, design inspired by Kent town Margate. Looking forward to wearing it in the tidal pool!
All swimsuits I've ordered from Usual Objections have been the highest quality and the designs so original and fun. The LOBSTER is no exception - a masterpiece! And the customer experience is similarly excellent, my family and I are big fans of Rich and the personality that shines through his service
Love love love the Tidal Love cossie - joyous design, beautiful materials expertly put together - treat yourself! Excellent customer service too.
Absolutely everything about Usual Objections is of the highest quality - service, swimsuit, even down to the special and considered packaging. I cannot recommend these swimsuits enough. The fit and feel is second to none and I’ve tried many! I’m getting some serious pool and sea envy as a result of that and the playful graphics! Thank you Linda & Rich
I contacted the team about remaking the giraffe design suit with the skinny straps and they were so helpful and accommodating. I was reasurred I would recieve it in good time and they were true to their word. Sizing was perfect and there was not a hint of chafe over a 3km swim and I felt supported and streamlined. I was by far the most colourful person at the lido that day and I felt awesome! Thank you so much U.O; I will be recommending your swim suits!
I love this swimsuit - it's a great colour and the fit is excellent. A big confidence booster! Really personal service as well. Thank you!
I get compliments on this swimsuit every time I wear it. It fits great, is flattering and super comfortable in and out of the water. The scoop back isn't my usual style but the straps really stay up while swimming. Now just to decide on the pattern for my next one ...
I love it, the Octopus pattern is so cute and playful! The swimsuit fits really nicely and it's really comfortable to wear. I don't think I felt this happy with a swimsuit in years! As a bonus, my partner also loves it.
The packaging it came in was really well presented, and also had a waterproof bag that I started using straight away with the swimsuit to carry it back home after swimming.
Swimming has been one of my passions since I was little, so you can imagine how I felt when I won a swimsuit from the Usual Objections competition back in February! And I never win anything!
The swimsuit came beautifully wrapped in tissue paper, in a lovely branded box with illustrations of swimmers in the inside (which I am intending to keep, way too pretty!) and a handwritten note from Linda & Rich.
The swimsuit fits perfectly and it feels very comfortable as well. It also came with an impermeable bag to put the swimsuit in once I have finished swimming! All very thought through to the last detail, so I am already thinking of the next print to buy from these guys, and there are so many!
I'm really happy with my swimsuit. I love the colours and patterns. In hindsight, I wish I had been a bit more adventurous when choosing (I'll do that for the next one)!
It feels very different to your standard Speedo swimsuit, as the fabric is a bit more substantial and nicely holds in any flappy bits, while being very comfy to swim in.
I've used it for around 9 months now, and it still looks brand new. Great quality product with amazing design ethos behind it!
I opted for the blue swimsuit from UO because I enjoyed the bright orange outline against the tranquil navy. Having been so taken by the colours I hadn't given the cut as much thought – how foolish! This is an incredibly flattering cut. And the quality as high as promised. I've followed the garment's instructions and washed in cold waters after each swim and I think that helps keep its great shape. So buy it and do that
Excellent quality swimsuit and superb customer service. I can’t recommend this company enough - looking for an ethical swimsuit I found Usual Objections and I loved the design of the Margate Sunset but my size (XL) was not then available. I approached the company and asked them if they had plans to make their suits in larger sizes and lo and behold I now have a perfectly fitting excellent quality suit which is a joy to swim in. Thank you Usual Objections, I love my swimsuit!
This swimsuit is a dream that does not go unnoticed: It gets compliments whenever I wear it!
I was really happy wearing it as both quality and print are outstanding.
I am a seasoned swimmer and this suit is very fashionable without compromising on comfort and performance. It feels great in the water and does not move at all. It’s like second skin and love the contrast binding and open back. Will definitely buy more from this brand. Highly recommend it!
