Recognizing that tech suits are very personal choices, after trying the Avictor, AP12 and several Speedo and Arena offerings, this is the suit that my 15 year old daughter comes back to. It fits, provides good compression and swims are consistently good. There may be faster suits, but for the money this is a great suit. Sizing is accurate and lines up well with her practice suit size. Her last suit lasted through 3 meets totalling approximately 20-24 races before one of the seams ripped. The first time she wore it, she dropped more than 20 seconds in her 500 free, with significant dropped times in her other events. We haven't found another suit that comes close.

True to size, but not fast
author Feb 18, 2015 | Posted by | Gender: Female Sport Interest: Swimming Age: 18-24 Size Purchased: 28
This is an okay suit. Based on the sizing chart provided, it is true to size. I'm 5'5", 140 pounds, 35" chest, 56" torso, and 29" and wear a size 28 in this suit. I normally wear a size 28 in TYR practice suits and a size 26 in Speedo practice suits. This suit takes 15-25 minutes to get on, as most tech suits do. It repels water well and dries quickly. It lasts a while: it lasts me about 3-4 four-day meets before it starts to fade, and I swim longer races. Since I swim distance, the suit straps are very tight for the first few uses, and I wouldn't recommend this suit for milers. It's not that fast of a suit, either. It compresses you well and keeps you on top of the water, but doesn't offer as much speed as a Speedo. I wouldn't recommend this suit if you're looking for a super fast suit.

Product Questions & Answers (5)
Q: Fit question: Is the fit more accurate if you go by weight or by height? I am tallish but slim and my size doesn't quite fit anywhere on the chart. What is best size for a racing fit for 5 ft 9 and 122 lbs? Hate to have the suit too short, but hate to have it too loose. Thanks.
Q: Hello. Please, help me. I need WOMEN'S TRACER B-SERIES SHORTJOHN. My size: height 5"2, weight 83"6. What my size according to the table?
Q: Hello, Is the item sewed or glued together? Thankyou you for time. Goodbye
Q: How do the Tracer B-series fit compared to the AP 12 Credere Compression Open Back suits? For the AP 12, I wore a 30 but it was far too painful/difficult to get on because it was double-layered, so I plan to get a 32 the next time. For the Tracer B-series, should I get a 32 as well, since it's a thinner fabric? I'm 5'9 and 150-155 lbs
Q: I am 170 lbs and 5'5'' and I'm trying to figure out what size I would order, but I can't tell by the chart.
