    Fits snug just the way it should. Perfect and great price.I know durning my Masters swim session I swam faster I had to move up I was on there feet. Just enough to keep warm in Hawaii winters, evenings or early mornings.

    This swim skin worked great for my last tri of the year. The front extremely thin neoprene actually did work to keep me warm in 70 water. Very comfortable once you get the suit on. Warning: this is a very tight fitting suit. I am 127 lbs and 5'5 and the extra small fit just right. Must ask fellow athletes to help zip up :)

    Used this for two triathlon's this year. It worked great because it allowed me to swim without the annoyance of sleeves. If you don't want to spend half your paycheck on the full tri suit this is the one for you.

    Using the size chart on the Orca website it looked as though this would fit me. The bottom half was just fine, but the chest and shoulder area was very small and I was not able to zip the zipper. I am not chesty but do have wide shoulders and lats and perhaps this is the issue. Overall, the suit had great quality and a nice feel. Too bad I could not make it work!

    I bought two sizes in the suit (US 2 and US 4) Both were really tight around the neck and left red marks. I would not be able to compete in the suit due to this feature. I am 5 ft 2 and weigh 120 lbs. I would order up next time.

    I liked this, but had to reorder in a larger size. The second one fit really well, only thing is that it pulled a little on my shoulders because I'm tall. Also you NEED to wear a sports bra with this.

    Great open water suit for warm water. I am not sure if it is 2010 FINA approved for open water. Orca web site says approved for non-wetsuit races. I had a copy of that with me. Race director was not sure. I think it used to be, not sure about today, so do not count on it, bring a back up suit in case you are racing in sanctioned event. There is no padding in crotch, so I am not sure if I would like swap out my usual triathlon suit for bike ride in it.... It has a superhero look about it...

    This is a great suit, especially if you get it on sale. It is a high quality item. It is thicker than I usually wear for triathlons and am not sure if I will feel like a super hero in the latex looking ensemble (usually I wear a zoot size M or TYR size small, 34 speedo). I ordered this in a medium 10. It fits well. Hope that helps in deciding size. I have the same size orca wetsuit, that I love....

    Another nice thing about the suit is it is legal for non-wetsuit races, but it seems to make me slightly more buoyant......I did not experience the sausage leg issue, as the suit is pretty long and hits below the cellulite reserves.
