I'd recommend a Speedo LZR X or an Arena Carbon Pro or Arena Carbon Flex.

I'm having problems sizing jammers. I've tried low and higher cut versions of the speedo LZR. My problem is I have well developed butt and lower back muscles so there is a "pocket" that forms in the bag of the suit with water going directly into the suit....like a drag suit. Any suggestions on how to get around this? Thanks!

As mainly a sprinter (best events are 50, 100 free and 100 fly) what would be the best suit that has good compression for me

Speedo LZR Comfort Strap. It holds up a lot better than the 2016 version.

PLEASE HELP FAT GIRL
Im looking for a tech suit knee length, I love swimming and would like to swim competitively. I participated in a swim meet many years ago. Because Im a larger swimmer then most, like the Clydesdale group of bikers that are over a heavier wt. then most other competitive bikers. I have fat pockets on my thighs at the leg opening area of swimsuits. I have now become so self conscience as my mother took pictures from visitor seats higher up then pool level and I has devastated at how much they showed. I can deal with them at practice but I want swim in a meet again until I have something that works better. For now when in the water for fun i have worn a pair of tight compression type running shorts under my suit so I don't feel so embarrassed. But it I want to compete I need a better solution. Do you or any company that you know of make lager tech suits? Im like 1-2 sizes larger then most I have seen online. OK my measurements are bust 50 waist 42 hips 52 hour glass just about 20 inches to big everywhere. ( oh can't have everything) one suit I found that may work is
Blueseventy neroFIT Kneeskin Tech Suit
SKU: SRFIT-15 Product Code: 8124887
size 36 (not on size chart)
Do you think this would work or do you have any suggestions for something that better suits (lol) me.?
Please help fat girl trying to change that image. Plus tech suits so expenspive that is really the other issue.

How do you know when the tech suit needs to be replaced? Is it every season or number of swims?

Would you say different type of swimmers (like backstrokers, flyers, etc) tend to gravitate towards different suits than other type of swimmers? I have seen many of my IM friends go for arena carbons but lots of my backstroke teammates go for Speedo LZRs.
