    • If you've ordered multiple sizes, try the biggest one first.
    • If you can't get it on, it's too small.
    • If it has ripple and gaps, it's too big.

  • 7/24/2017 Good quality racing suit

    5 Review Stars By Christine Morrissey

    My daughter is 14 and wanted a change from the Speedo Lzr elite. She said this suit is more structured while offering a tight fit, but is easier on her shoulders. If you wear the lzr elite I recommend going up one size, we initially ordered the suit in her usual Lzr elite size and after about 40 minutes we got it on, but she didn't feel she could race in it. We exchanged it for one size up, still extreemly tight, but comfortable enough for competition. She is 5'8, about 120 pounds with an average torso and long legs, she usually wears a size 30 in practice suits.

  • 3/29/2015 Great Suit

    5 Review Stars By abarrow

    The Arena Carbon Air is a wonderful suit. I usually wear between 28-30 for a practice suit. I'm 5'6, 125-130 pounds. I tried on a size 26 first and got it on within 3 minuets. It was a little fast so I tried on a size 24. It fit perfectly. Putting on a tech suit should take 8-10 minuets, these suits should be REALLY tight. I didn't find it that hard to put on, you just have to inch it up your body. It was very comfortable, especially the shoulders. Plus it felt like it was made of very high quality material and did not feel like it was going to rip (best feeling ever when putting on a tech suit). I had full range of motion (I swim the IM, range of motion is a key factor in choosing this suit) and look forward to wearing it in the pool. In all I think this is a wonderful suit.

  • 6/29/2017 Great suit!

    5 Review Stars By Stick

    This is my daughter's first kneeskin and she loves it.  She used it for a 4-day prelims/finals meet this past weekend and had best times in every event.  She is 5'8" and about 115 lbs. She got a size 26, as this suit seemed to run smaller than the Speedos, which she tried on in size 24. When she tried it on, she immediately loved the feel of this suit over the Speedos, which she said felt more paper-like and scratchy. She felt those would rip easier than this suit. It takes her about 10 minutes to get it on and her shoulders get sore with it on too long, so she pulls it down and wears a bikini top between events. Overall, a great suit!

  • 1/20/2016 Haven't worn it in the water yet but daughter loves it so far

    4 Review Stars By Bellis

    We usually wear the Speedo LZR Elite, but since they tend to stretch out fairly quickly decided to try something different this time.  Daughter is 15, 5'6" and normally wears a 28 in a practice suit.   We ordered a 26 and it seems to be the right size.  It took her about 10 minutes to put it on - we don't want the suit so tight that it takes 30 mins to put it on as I think that adds un-needed stress.  She hasn't worn it in a meet yet but will next week but she loves how it fits out of the water.  Will try to post an update after she swims in it.

  • 6/14/2017 Just about perfect

    4 Review Stars By Michelle

    My daughter's measurements fell across 3 sizes. We were advised to get the size based on the largest measurement (hips), with the suggestion that we could go down a size if we wanted more compression. We bought both one and two sizes down. We tried the smaller first, and it actually went on easier than we expected, and fit like a glove. She loved how it felt in a smaller size (she prefers compression), and felt she would've been able to swim all her stokes.  The ONLY negative about this suit was the thin material and the privacy panels around her belly. My daughter felt self-conscious with the way it looked on her. I knew that would be in her head the whole meet, so we opted to go with the arena carbon flex instead.

    This suit was not made for girls with curves.  Barely covered in the top front (has odd sheer panel at cleavage area).  Back keyhole was loose and gapped.

  • 5/11/2017 Holds Up Well

    4 Review Stars By H2O Mom

    Bought this suit for my daughter for high school league finals.  The suit held up well.  We used the size chart for fit.  I had her try it on twice before race day just to make sure it would fit and not be too tight or too hard to get on.  She wore it to practice one day just to get the feel of the suit and then she wore it for two races on two race days (4 races total).  Each time she was able to shave time off races.  There is a gap in the back as the suit comes down low, but everyone reassured her it was how the suit was meant to be.  
    What I liked the most was that even with all the times she put the suit on, it held up with no holes, snags, or tears.  I know other brands that cost a lot more can get a hole real easy.  I would definitely consider buying this suit again.

  • 11/16/2015 Daughter loves it

    5 Review Stars By Tom

    My daughter bought this for Regionals and state.  Absolutely loves it. She has only used it for two meets so can't comment on durability yet.  Sizing  recommendations would have had her between a 26 and 28.  We were torn between getting her a 26 and a 24 because of her hip measurements.  The 26 took her about 8 minutes to get into, she was comfortable in it and it fit well.  not sure we could have gotten a 24 past her hips or not.

  • 5/8/2017 Great suit, with a great fit!

    4 Review Stars By PNS Swim Mom

    My daughter is 14, 5'5", 106 lbs, slender with a long torso.  Most of the girls on her team with tech suits typically buy Speedo brand, specifically the LZR.  When she was professionally fitted for a suit, her measurements fell between 2-3 sizes, depending on the suit.  We picked the smaller size, since she is slender.  However, even with going with the small size, the Speedo suits allow too much room in the chest, which causes water to enter the suit at the top. Someone on the team suggested we try a smaller "longer torso" suit, but Speedo doesn't offer long torso in smaller sizes than 25.  After paying attention to different brands at meets and reading many of the reviews for different brands, we decided to give Arena tech suits a try.  My daughter is very happy with her size 26 Arena Carbon Air suit.  It fits perfectly everywhere, including the chest. It's not too difficult to get on (with my help), and comfortable enough to wear for hours at a time.
