    Feels too small

    Advice- order 1 size up from practice suit size.  Open back review; unsure on closed back.  Daughter dropped time on both of individual events @ State regionals.  Replaced the speedo razer elite.  Customer service great at Swimout.  Will not shop any other online stores in future because of recent bad experience with a kentucky store that also has online site

    Feels true to size

    What a great speed suit. Best times achieved wearing this at State meet. DO NOT order a few sizes down like you might for other brands. Follow the TYR sizing guideline and you'll be fine.

    Feels true to size

    I thought that this suit was very helpful. This suit is made to order around your practice suit size. My practice suit size is a 24 and I ordered this suit in a 24 and it fit perfectly. The only thing is that I found it hard to get over the hips. Me and one other girl have this suit on my team because we are small and we usually need several people to help us put it on but it is worth it at the end because you drop a ton of time!

    What a great suit once we got the size right after two returns. The suit runs small but customer service was awesome with the returns. My daughter had amazing times at the state meet.
    Would definitely recommend this suit !!

    Feels too small

    I usually get my daughter Arena tech suits which goes 1 size up from the practice suits, this TYR tech suit had to be 2 sizes up from her practice suit. A great suit so far after 6 events (durable and not transparent) the customer service as always was great in exchanging the item.

    Feels too small

    I have a Tyr Tracer B series size 32 that fits perfect, so after asking sizing advice on this suit I ordered size 32 and it is way too small. My practice suits are all size 34 in every brand I've ever tried. I'm 5"4" and 132 lbs. I ended up returning this suit.

    Accurate sizing and quality construction. 2 of my high school swimmers purchased these suits for regionals and states this year. The suits wore well and both girls liked the way the suits looked and felt, and both swam best times in them.  The suits took 15-30 minutes to put on the first time. Less after that. The sizing charts are accurate and should be followed. Sizing down for these suits is not appropriate. One of the girls contacted the manufacturer and they gladly assisted with size selection.  The bottom line is that it is a good suit and if sized properly, appears to be as good or better than most of the others available.



Founded in Southern California in 1985, TYR™ has since developed a reputation for high-quality products and equipment. TYR competition swimwear and triathlon gear have been a dominant force in their respective industries. The company is also known for its TYR goggles, swim apparel, triathlon wetsuits and a wide variety of swimming equipment.

TYR was the first company to introduce a pair of goggles designed to fit a woman's face (the TYR T-72). TYR was also responsible for the famous red bathing suits featured on the hit television series "Baywatch." TYR consults with current and former athletes when developing its products. Swimmers know that TYR is a leader in swimsuits, warm-up suits, and swim training equipment. The TYR Tracer Series is one of the most advanced technical suit lines on the market. The TYR Hurricane wetsuits and the TYR Torque collections include top-of-the-line suits for the competitive swimmer.

TYR has also moved into competitive running equipment. From running shirts to shorts, its apparel is designed with the runner in mind. Built with moisture wicking fabric and antimicrobial material, TYR running apparel is designed to give the athlete the most comfortable, dry clothing on the market.

The name "TYR" is derived from the Norse god of warriors, who is said to have embodied victory and glory. Much the same can be said about the athletes who started TYR. Executive Vice President, Steve Furniss, was an Olympian who competed in the 1972 and 1976 Summer Games, and captained the 76th U.S. Olympic Swim Team.
