Unique Aquablade fabric offers lower drag co-efficient and is slicker than skin. Stripes create channeling effect to streamline water away from the body.

I would say a 26. One size down is usually best for racing suits.

Your mileage may vary, but I would go down 2 sizes on an aquablade. Very stretchy material. My kids love this suit.

I bought this suit for my 10 yr old for meets. Great value for a water repellant suit. She normally wears a size 28 practice suit. The 24 Aquablade fit her and definite is NOT too small.

I am 5"5" and wear a size 36 training suit. The size 36 Aquablade fits well. I tried the size 38 also, and it was too big. The size 34 would probably be ok for shorter pool competition, but I did not want to risk shoulder pain in a 5k open water swim. The water repellency is pretty good.
Fit: Feels true to size
Great fast suit for starters
I received this suit for Christmas because I was so close to qualifying for JO's but hadn't yet made it. At my first meet wearing the Aquablade, I dropped time in 5/6 events. At the second meet, I dropped even more time and made a JO cut by shaving three seconds off my 100 breast. Since then, I've also made 4 more cuts wearing this suit. It feels nice and tight, although the bottom is slightly big in proportion to the rest of the suit. It looks great when wet because you can see the stripes standing out. I also like seeing the water droplets sitting on my suit. :) It has lasted well for 8 months and I think I could wear it a bit longer. The stripes have faded but it still works well. I'm planning on upgrading to the Fastskin 2 for the next season, but my Aquablade was perfect for a first technical suit. Definitely recommended.
It held up well during swim season. Logo fell off.

Amazing suit its my fav
I'm 11 years old and i received as a early Christmas gift. The suit is a Amazing suit its totally my favorite racing suit I've had (although it is the only one I've had). The first time i wore it i dropped 3 seconds in my 100 free and at least a second or more in all the others. I love the way it fits and how weightless it feels. The suit is also very snug as it should be but is not uncomfortable. I got a 28 which is my normal practice size because it was my first technical suit and now i will be purchasing a 24 for my next one. The 28 felt like wearing a looser yet tight in a way 26. I definitely recommend this suit for young racers and older ones as well!

i Love it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
this is a great suit! i got it for a championship meet and dropped 3 seconds in 100 free and for every thing else i dropped at least a second. However i have now worn it maybe 5-10 times (including finals) and it is not water repellent anymore and it has stretched out a bit. I got my normal practice size (28) sense it was my first i will now be getting what my coach recommended a 24. Overall it is a great suit and i highly recommend it!!!!
Fit: Feels too big
Can't Go Wrong With the Aquablade!
I love this suit! It is great for non championship meets that you still want to do well in. It is very thin and makes you feel fast. I wear a 30-32 in Speedo practice suits and I got a 28 in the Aquablade and it fits perfect.
It's very thin, in the bright light I think it's too revealing.
Happy high school girls
Purchased as team meet suit, girls love the feel and fit. Seemed true to size and had no exchanges for size. Color has held up thru several meets now and looks just so new now after 9 meets as when new. Girls are now mostly wearing last years similar suit for practice and still holding up very well. I expect they will order same again.
