does the actual suit have the same leg pattern as shown the image?
yes. I love this suit. I chose it because it most closely matched my body measurements. I was not disappointed, it was a perfect fit.
The suit purchased for me in 2009 looks different than this. It is all black but does not have the diagonal stitching on the legs/thighs, just a horizontal seam or stitching across the knee area with a roughly oval shaped patch stitched in behind the knee, perhaps to accommodate bending of the knee.The chest area is also differnt than the picture with all the same type of neoprene as the rest of the suit. Hope this is helpful. Feel free to inquire further.
