This 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.

I 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.

Surprisingly 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.

I 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.

Nice 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.
