GREAT FIT, BUT VERY DISAPPOINTED IN POLYESTER FABRIC.

I purchased this suit in navy through Swim Outlet at the end of July, 2014, on sale. Shortly after that my current lycra/nylon/spandex suit started showing signs of wear, so I switched to my new suit (probably August or early September). This was my first experience with a polyester suit. I usually swim 2X/week for about 45 - 60 minutes, although due to the holidays and 2 vacations, this suit did not get the use it normally would have over this time period. I've been very happy with the fit of the suit as I have been with all of my Tyr suits. I have a classic pear shape and Tyr suits manage to stay snug to my chest while still offering full coverage of my rear with only a slight ride up. The polyester does seem to feel a little snugger, which I like, but I have two issues with it which is why I am giving it only 3 stars and considered giving it only 2. #1: the top-stitched seams on my navy suit have turned orange. I am not sure if this was a sudden or gradual change -- I just suddenly noticed that the seams were very noticeable about a week or two ago. For someone who is self-conscious about their rear end, having an orange stripe on a navy suit going down their backside and between their butt cheeks is a deal breaker. #2: Not sure if it's something about the fabric, or maybe a less stretchy fit causing more friction on my shoulders, but lately every time I swim, I end up with an eczema-type rash on my collarbone where the straps sit. I clear it up with a cortisone cream, and then the next time I swim it comes back.
