Love this suit
I originally owned this suit in size Medium. The only reason I repurchased is because I gained some weight and had to go up a size. The medium one is still in excellent condition. I ordered L and XL. Kept the L, returned the XL because XL was too big. This suit is awesome. I wore it thru 2 triathlons.
Fit: Feels too small

Just got this in the mail!
This just arrived so I haven't worn it in action yet.. I am 5'7" 130 lbs, and I got a large in the lime green (I think I would typically wear a medium). Might be a little tight to pull over the hips for some, but my hips aren't huge, so it is fine. Large is a good fit for me.Feels good and love the color - goes great with my bike. Can't wait to tri it out!
Great tri suit
I bought this suit for my first tri and it was great - I did not experience any drag during the swim (which I was a little concerned about) and I felt very comfortable during transitions. I didn't even have to wear a sport bra underneath (am a 34B) and neither did my friend who bought the same suit after seeing me use it the first time, and she is more endowed than I am. We have received a lot of compliments on the suits!! The styling is great too - definitely more attractive with the stitching that mocks a bathing suit bottom in the front. Overall, I love this suit! Only issue is going to the bathroom once the suit is on, it's hard to slide it down over the hips - but this isn't an issue in the sprint tri's I am doing. Definitely order a size or 2 up - these suits are tight - on purpose!
Fit: Feels true to size
Great fit! Very comfortable. did a 70.3 in it without a problem...no chafing, movement. Size guidelines accurate! Very happy!!!
Way too small
I am a size large and ordered the XL and I could barely get it on and forget about getting the top zipped. The sizing on the TYR is so far off from the other brands. I have since ordered three other suits (a Pearl Izumi, an Orca and a Louis Garneau) in XL and they were all too big (should have stuck with a L in those). But TYR's sizing was nowhere near any of the other brands which were all comparable.
Great but Causes terrible chafing
I ordered the suit a size up because the previous reviews said that the suit was small. It was great advice and the suit fits perfectly! I love the colors and the material it is made out of. Unfortunately the seat pad sewn into the bottom of the suit was not properly finished and there are raw edges all along the seat pad. These raw edges cause extensive chafing on the inner thighs. After wearing the suit for a quick bike/run training ride my inner thighs were raw and bleeding due to the raw edges. If there were no raw edges along the seat pad I would give this product 5 stars for sure!

I am so glad i read the reviews before I purchase the suit. Size wise it really does run small, normally I will choose size 34 for swim suit brands such as sporti or Dolphins, and 36 for speedo. which in this tri suit, I got the XL, which fit great! And I really like the color I got, Which is blue. Finally, I must say the shipping of this suit was super fast where I only order in a regular shipping deal(5-7 business day), and it was being delivered within 3 days. Must admit that with a decent quality and color, that also comes in a great deals like this, absolutely worth it!
Reading the comments of others, I ordered a size up. I'm 5'4'', 115lbs, and typically wear an XS/S, so I ordered a size M. I could barely pull it up and will be returning it - I would need a L. I am not re-ordering it, though, because the pockets are very small (just big enough for a gu, but not for a bar or shot blocks), and I misread and was looking for a unisuit with a bra.Overall, the suit seems pretty good quality (untested) and if it fitted, seemed like it would be comfortable (hence, the three stars).
I am 5'6", under 140 pounds. I always wear a size 6 or small. Because of the other reviews, I ordered a large and I still could not pull it up over my butt! I also ordered some TYR shorts and those have a drawstring, so the fit was normal (small worked) but I seriously do not know how anyone could put these on. I thought I would break the stitching if I forced it, so I'm just sending it back. It's a cute design, but even when I pulled it out of the box at work, people commented that it looked like a child's size!

Sizes are small
I ordered a large in Orca and it's a little too big, but I can't even get the large Tyr on. It's going back today.

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.
