We bought two of these suits for my daughters'' high school state swim meet. It is the first purchase we have made of a tech suits and weren''t sure what to buy. Since I hadn''t heard of this brand, and couldn''t find many reviews about it, I was a bit nervous. I looked them up online (only found 1 review from a college swimmer who didn''t like it much) and found the company website. After sending them an email and getting some information back, we decided to try it. So, we ordered 7 tech suits, 5 of these in various sizes, plus two Arena Powerskin ST to try on and compare. When they came, we compared the construction of these to the very expensive Speedo tech suit that another teammate had purchased, plus the cheaper Arena suit.
After about 20 minutes to put on the suit, my girls decided they liked these suits. They were reasonably comfortable to wear and move around in, but the shoulder straps dug into the shoulders a bit which worried me (after we decided which ones to keep, they wore them in the water and said the shoulder straps didn''t bother them). The construction is very similar to the Speedo, with hidden or flat seams, strips to hold the suits in place around the thighs, and very lightweight but sturdy fabric which slides through the water without absorbing it (the fabric is the same as the Speedo). The bodice has an integrated lining (it''s all part of the suit fabric) so although the fabric is a little see through in places like the legs, there is modest coverage where it counts (the Arena suit has a seperate polyester liner, which could shift around when worn). Plus, the Arena suit weighed more than the A3. As soon as we pulled them out of the packaging, we could tell the weight and fabric differences. Also, the Arena has pretty large, exposed seams which could add drag, has a larger keyhole opening in the back which exposed the girls'' sides , and sits low on the back above the rear end. I think there would be more compression in the core with the A3, based on these factors.
We bought red, which looks better than it does in the photos online. One daughter is 5''10", weighs 130. So she falls under one size category for weight and a size up for height. She wears a 30 or 32 practice suit and a 28 in her team competition suit. We bought her a 28 in the A3, which fits snug, but not too tight.
The other daughter is 5''5", 120lbs. She normally wears a 28 or 30 practice suit, and her team competition suit is a 24. She couldn''t even get the 24 A3 on, so she went with the 26 in the A3, which fits exactly as she wants.
The company is discontinuing these because they came out with a new version, so this is a great time to buy what seems to be a great suit. I''m hoping the suits are durable and they can wear them for more than this one meet,

I'm almost 5'11 and normally a size 14 to 16. After reading other reviews on the size, I went with the 42 (16).
The suit fits true to the measurements and if you take it for what it's supposed to be - a tight fitting suit so it stays on and supports you- it's fit's perfect. It may be a little short in the torso for me, but not enough to bother me.

This tech suit is really good! The fit is really nice. I wear a 30/28 for practice and i got this in a 26.(I'm around 5'5 and 105 pounds)it took me about 10 to 15 minutes to put on and in my opinion that's really little time compared to the carbon pro which took 30 minutes to an hour!!!! Overall, its a very good suit and comfortable on the shoulders as well. Definitely worth it!

I got this suit for school conference meet and it worked fantastically. I dropped 11 secs in my 500 free and I would like to give the suit the credit it deserves. My only problem I had with the suit was the it soaked in just a little bit but not that bad.
