Back to the tri suit question.  Is 'so tight my tattoos show through' too tight? 

Speaking of tattoos be careful of the tri kit "tramp stamp" if you are wearing a top/bottom set.  I still have remnants of a wicked sunburn on my lower back from a race last July!  I get my new local club kit today and have an Olympic tomorrow.  Tons of sunscreen shall be applied to my lower back in the morning.

Ouch IY!  Mine will be an all-in-one, so that (coupled with the Scottish 'summer'), should avoid the back burn.

SD, apparently it was a TV show in the 70's?  My granny told me about it

You should come over and do my local iron distance race! Last year, Ironman Louisville was "cool."  Only 29C and sunny. The 2010 version, we had a heat index of about 40C.  I was working the finish line that year and the carnage was awful.

My tri suit has a special extra padded panel around the waistline. Added protection in case of a fall.

I got the one with the waistline buoyancy aid and my wetsuit is the latest in walruss mimicking technology for additional gliding ability and it minimises energy being expended
