  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 3/9/2017 Nice suit!

    Suit was great for free and back. A little constricting for fly and breast. But much easier to get on than some of the other tech suits. Took about 15min to get on.
