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...

I had a TYR suit I loved for many years, and when it died, I wanted very much just to replace it. This suit, which is the closest model now available, has some of the features I loved most in my old suit. The reversible feature is handy - two suits in one! - and also reduces wear and tear and color fade since you can go with either side. My reason for giving it 4 stars though is that the sizing seems to be out of sync. I'm 5'2, 114 lbs and usually the size 34 fits with room to spare. Given the other reviews about sizing being on the small side, I got the 36. It fits but it's very, very snug. I hope it's going to stretch a bit, since it's fabric and not wetsuit type material, but it's not as comfortable as I would like. So, just a warning to folks out there - this suit doesn't seem to fit the way the size chart would predict it should!

I can't attest to the comfort in the water. I bought this suit on a good deal to use when others start rotting to much to be saved. I went with a size 34, but probably should have gone with a 32 as it will loosen in the water. The fit is good enough for my purposes. I am 5'9 1/2" 130-132lbs, bust 34-35 AA.

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.
