    Feels true to size

    6 1 145lbs
    I originally ordered a 26L based on advice from friends and other race suits I had worn before (speedo). Trying to get it on, it ripped before it was even over my hips. I got instead the 28L which fit perfectly. According to the size chart it should be way too small, but it fit (took about 15 minutes to get on). These suits are notorious for being difficult to get on but they are a good price for the quality of them. If you're unsure of your size, order a few and send back the ones that don't fit. I am a high school and club swimmer, I bought this for my high school state meet but plan on using it for club states and sectionals.

    The biggest stress about any technical suit is getting the correct size, so hopefully this may help someone get the perfect fit.  I am 5"8" 132lbs and I got a size 26 regular.  It was a good fit except i really needed a long as it pulled on my shoulders.  Regardless, I got the cut time that I set out to get, so I guess it was all good.

    Wish I had heeded advice of other reviewers. Buy your regular size, not smaller. Smaller TYR suit size too small, had to buy new suit (not the one that I really wanted) at the meet, returning the one bought from  Swim Outlet.

    The suit seems to be well made.  We returned the first order since we went with prior race suit experience and did not listen to some of the valuable advice in this review section.  First was a 28L (our previous season's normal) returned for a 32L. Practice suit is a 30 or 32.  Some physical growth but nothing remarkable.  Haven't used in competition yet but if like other TYR's, it should hold up well.

    This is an okay suit. Based on the sizing chart provided, it is true to size. I'm 5'5", 140 pounds, 35" chest, 56" torso, and 29" and wear a size 28 in this suit. I normally wear a size 28 in TYR practice suits and a size 26 in Speedo practice suits. This suit takes 15-25 minutes to get on, as most tech suits do. It repels water well and dries quickly. It lasts a while: it lasts me about 3-4 four-day meets before it starts to fade, and I swim longer races. Since I swim distance, the suit straps are very tight for the first few uses, and I wouldn't recommend this suit for milers. It's not that fast of a suit, either. It compresses you well and keeps you on top of the water, but doesn't offer as much speed as a Speedo. I wouldn't recommend this suit if you're looking for a super fast suit.

    This is a really good suit! It takes a while to get on the first time, but it stretches out. It's pretty comfortable and feels great in the water. This suit is much better than the TYR C-Series. I normally wear a 26 in TYR practice suits, and I ordered a 28 and it fits well.

    As all other reviewers have said, don't drop a ton of sizes as you would for other tech suits. I wear my LZR Elite and ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT, but I wanted a slightly lower end suit for summer championships since I focus on winter champs and didn't find it necessary to go LZR Elite for meets I don't focus on. Anyway, this suit was terrible. I have worn it for all of one race. The second I got in it bubbled because the abdomen fabric is two pieces whereas the Elite is one piece, and water gets between the layers and bubbles which creates drag, so... not exactly what we are going for here. I'd say just suck it up and by another nicer tech suit because this one is not worth anything. very upsetting.

    I got this suit for all of the championship meets that I'll be competing in in the near future and I've used it twice so far. I absolutely love it! I suggest getting help to put it on. Racing in it feels amazing.

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.
