I am a small/medium framed female (5'4", 125lbs) and ordered this suit for triathlons. I L-O-V-E it! I do wear a bra under it, but it could function without.

Brad,|It looks like the swimskin does fit the WTC guidelines for an approved suit.. Your going to want to start looking for suits that are made of 100% textile material such as nylon or lycra.

This is not a wetsuit, but a speed suit. It is a material that is slightly thicker than a normal swimsuit to insulate some, but it moves freely so you don't have to change. There is not a chamois for riding in this suit.
