Reviewed by tjaw from Hoboken on Thursday, October 15, 2015This is the second time I fell for this sizing issue. I wear an Orca small which the Orca site is chest 33-35 and weight 118-135. When the package arrived the STP label says xxs size 6. It is a full two sizes too small but STP labels it a small rather than an extra extra small. Disappointed.
I gave it a two because while the quality is very good the chances of ordering the right size is not good.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Sara from North Idaho on Monday, August 17, 2015I bought this suit to wear for my first triathlon. I have been training in it now for a couple weeks. It fits and feels great. I'm glad I read other reviews however and listened to others opinion on the sizing. I typically wear a size 6-8, but was advised to get at least a size 12. I did get the size 12 and it fits perfect, snug but not constricting. I would certainly buy this suit again.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Strapped for Space from Pennsylvania on Thursday, May 14, 2015Surprisingly flattering fit. This is my first tri, and I'd been worried about the "stuffed sausage" look. It's just plain practictical for race day, though, so I got over myself and ordered it. Very happy I did. It's actually kind of cute and very comfy. I took away a star because the white fabric in the back is see-through, and I absolutely need to wear a bra with it. Not a deal breaker, but also not perfect.
Reviewed by Tri Harder from Michigan on Thursday, May 1, 2014I bought this suit solely based on the inseam and am very pleased with this purchase. I am 6'1 and have trouble with womens trisuits hitting my leg in the mid-thigh and having that "sausage casing" effect. This one hits me just above the knee. Like other reviews, I agree that the armholes are a bit low cut in the back but there's sufficient coverage in the front, so unless you have a complex about your shoulder blades don't let that deter your purchasing this item.:) I'm excited to race in this and would buy again.
Reviewed by Kate from Worcester, MA on Wednesday, August 14, 2013Nice suit and a GREAT deal.
Cut low around the arms which looks a little odd, but allows for a full range of motion. Note that it is UK sizing, I ordered a 12 (I'm a street size 8) and it is still VERY tight. It fits like a US size 10 and is very compressive. At the end of the day, though,it still works well, but in retrospect, the 14 would have probably worked best.
When I originally tried it on the bra busted right open (tri suits aren't really designed with D-cup breasts in mind) so you might want to size up if you're also larger busted.
Question & Answer
“I (female) wear a size 2 in street clothes - jeans, shorts, etc. XSmall up top. I know the Orca size Small tri shorts fit me. I'm trying to figure out if this size 6 race suit will fit me or not. Any info will be helpful. I've already ordered what I thought was the right size in something and I have to return it. Will lose money on it unfortunately and I cannot afford to lose anymore. What I order this time has to work. thanks!”
