Feb 12, 2016 | Posted by NolanHSSwimmer | Gender: Male Sport Interest: Swimming Age: 13-17 Size Purchased: 28

This is my first tech suit that one have ever worn and it is spectacular.
I am a 17 year old male, skinny, 5'11", 145 pounds, and have a size 30 practice suit and 28 race suit.
I originally bought a size 26 of the AP12 (sizing down twice), but it was much too tight and was not comfortable. The 28 fits great. Takes less than 5 minutes to get into, but still provides maximum compression and flexibility.
One for my main concerns was that it would be too rigid for IM and breaststroke, but it has a great range of motion for kick and doesn't interfere with normal stroke.
A few things to keep in mind: the short suit is pretty low waisted and may be an issue with a larger butt or waist. Also, I would recommend warming up with ano there suit over the top before your first race to break it in a little.
After my first weekend wearing it to 2A high school districts (along with taper, rest, shaving, healthy eating , etc.) I dropped 6.5 seconds in my 200IM, broke 25 seconds in the 50 for the first time, and dropped 3 seconds in the 100 breaststroke, making state cuts in every race.
If you're on the edge and comparing it to other more expensive suits, this really is the best for the price range of ~$200.
Also one last note, TYR was very quick in the turn around when I returned the 26 (less than 1.5 weeks).

AP12 CREDERE Low cut

Oct 30, 2015 | Posted by Sprintasaurus rex | Gender: Male Sport Interest: Swimming Age: 45-54

My fastest 50 free times were all accomplished wearing this suit. The low cut version works best for me. I actually size up 2 times using a 32 with a suggested 28. I don't recommend sizing up unless you're skinny like me, and have less compressible flesh. Just ordered my 3rd one and have been using it since 2012.

6'1" male, 49 yrs
waist: 33
hip: 36
weight: 167lbs

With proper care, the suit lasts longer than expected too. Good to know there is still something (other than Apple) made in the USA with respectable quality
