Out of all the suits I have, this is the most comfortable one. I bought a size down because TYR suits tend to be a little baggy in the crotch from my experience.
Having bought a size down, it seems like the perfect fit. It doesn't put too much pressure anywhere and feels good. The side cut is the perfect size. The material is a little thin it seems, so if you're shy, go with black.
Only problem I've had is not tying the strings tight enough. For some reason with this suit I've noticed a parachute effect sometimes when pushing off the wall. If the waist isn't tied real tight, it will act as a drag suit with water rushing in to your crotch. Maybe the elastic waistband isn't very strong on its own. I haven't noticed this problem with the Durafast suits.
Don't expect this suit to last long. It's nylon/lycra which disintegrates fast in chlorine, so make sure to rinse it immediately after swimming and hang it to dry. If you buy nylon suits you should do it for a reason. I do it because they feel the best and stretch nicely unlike polyester.
Overall I prefer this suit to my Durafast suits. The material and feel of this one will have me buying more as they get worn out.

Seems to allow for smoother water flow and has better flexibility than suits with less lycra.
