I tend to like TYR for my lap swim suits.What is great and isn't mentioned in the description is that these are Durafast and will last much longer than a regular suit( I did order 2 because I didn't know that).At this price,it's not worth returning one and I will be able to rotate them,which is good...

This is a high quality swimsuit; nice fabric and a really good cut. It is reversible (2 layers of fabric) and so a little bit heavy and slow to dry. A word about fit...I am 5' 5", 120 lbs, 34A, and short-waisted. I got this suit first in size 36 because I really wanted the deep blue one, and they were sold out of the 38. It is slightly short on me but fine in the width. I kept it because I love the color, and in the water it is fine; I swam 2500 meters without any chafing or marks on my shoulders. But once I knew what a good quality suit it was, I ordered another one in the very electric pink, and this one I got in the 38, which feels better. So I think that for someone with my general dimensions, the 38 is preferable.

I read so many reviews on suits that I thought since I finally decided on this one, I should chime in about it. Its been a great suit! I'm 5'8" and 145lbs. I ordered the 38 and its the perfect fit. Definitely tight, but not uncomfortable. The suit stays put while doing laps. I wore it with bike shorts for a triathlon and it was great for the swim, bike, and run. No problems at all! I also wanted to note that it is super thick heavy material for a swimsuit, which I like. It feels like it will last a long time. The blue color is much more vibrant than the picture.

I don't like the tight wetsuit fit style. I have a wetsuit and they are supposed to be tight, but swimsuits should be more flexible. I also looked at what other reviewers said and ordered one size up from the size chart. I'm 5"5" 135 lbs, 62.5" torso, very athletic. The crotch area still feels pretty tight on size 38. I ordered another name brand that people say runs small and their 38 is a very nice fit.

I ordered this swimsuit to replace one that I purchased about a year ago from STP. The reversible style makes the suit super durable and long lasting. I wore the last suit 2x a week for lap swimming. However, something about TYR's sizing has changed. The suit seemed very short and fit me in every way other than the length. The last suit I bought was exactly the same style and also a size 38 (I'm 5'6", 125, athletic build, 36B bra size). Sadly, I had to return the suit and order another in a size 40 (again from STP) - which I hope fits as I love the suit.

As other reviewers have noted, this suit runs a little small, especially around the leg holes, and a little short. Not too bad, but I'm 5'9" and the 36 is a little bit on the short side. Fortunately, once you're in the pool, it relaxes a little bit and it didn't bother me, but I might have gone up one more size if I had it to do over again.
