  • 6/21/2013 very small for size

    rating star By MB

    This did not fit.  It was mainly see-through.

  • 3/24/2013 Size runs small even for compression gear, order up.

    rating star By Jacklin Z.

    Used for swimming, walking, weights.  Because it runs small, fabric is over stretched and becomes slightly transparent.

    Beautiful colors and design though.

    rating star By Sheila Smith

    I am 57 and swim 1 mile a day in an indoor olympic size pool. This suit holds tight to the body without constricting movement, holds up well in chlorine, and the back zipper is easy to manipulate. It is a modest suit, but fits comfortably tight to the body.

  • 11/14/2012 Nice but to small

    rating star By Aga

    I was so happy when I got it, I love the design BUT it was too small! I have boobs and butt, there was no way I can slide myself in and I'm usually size 7/ medium. I was very disappointed....

  • 9/30/2012 Nice compression, fits well

    rating star By Kathy

    I was a bit worried to order this with the previous comments but as a 71 kg 52 yo 165 cm woman I found this fit quite true to size.  No sausage legs and the compression will make your chest flat as a board.  After 52 years and nursing 4 kids I ALWAYS wear a bra, but had no need to with this suit.

  • 4/6/2010 Nice suit

    rating star By Ali

    It felt a little small but could still get it on.  Really like the cut and colors of it and can't wait to get out there in it.

  • 3/2/2010 Great quality but not made for tall women

    rating star By Dani

    I was excited to receive this suit as I am training for my first sprint tri.  I'm looking for any ways to shave time off transitions and a tri suit seemed the perfect way to go so I wouldn't have to change clothes in between events.  The quality and style of this suit are great - it felt durable and breathable.  However, it was just too short.  I am 5'11" and have yet to find a tri suit or even a "tall" one-piece bathing suit that doesn't pull my shoulders down while simultaneously riding up in all the wrong places.  I ordered a "large" even though I was under the weight guideline for that size.  I ended up returning the suit, very disappointed.

The founders of DeSoto are Emilio De Soto and Dan Neyenhuis. Emilio De Soto is a triathlete who is racing in his 27th consecutive season of triathlon competition. He is also fully immersed in his athletic lifestyle as a fitness trainer and coach. Dan Neyenhuis is an age-grouper triathlete who has been helicopter skiing for 20 years. Together, they created a company that designs cutting edge triathlon gear for triathletes, by triathletes.

DeSoto gear is designed to enhance performance in each leg of the race. The founders created the first mesh running cap, zippered tri tops, pocketed tri shorts, transition packs, tri suits, and tri shorts with discreet pads for cycling.

One of their other achievements was creating the DeSoto T1 triathlon wetsuit that is two pieces instead of one. The DeSoto T1 triathlon wetsuit was designed to make a better fit for triathletes, and each year, more DeSoto tri tops and DeSoto tri shorts are being added to the line. DeSoto is still the only company in the world that makes a two-piece triathlon wetsuit.
