should it be tight or loose? I'm a newbie, thinking about my first tri later this year or early next, as I'm marafun training atm but I'm determined to do a few tri races before my midlife crisis passes. Lol

Tight, but comfy! the body length I think is key - especially when you sit on the bike. You don't want it baggy otherwise it will scoop water it he swim, or flap on the bike/run.

Like a second skin you dont want it moving around your nether parts on the bike but you need to breathe too...

I bought one this weekend - it did wonders for my self confidence looking at myself in the mirror in it  shame it wasn't quite as good when I took it off

Right. Thanks all. I've lost half a stone in the last couple of weeks, so I guess it's time to get out and tri some on.

Have your nether parts shrunk with age DK?
