On Test: Tri Suits

Zone3 Aero Flo Racing Suit, £85

They say: Designed exclusively for women, this suit uses revolutionary Aero Flo fabric, which is extremely light, breathable, durable and flexible. The supportive inner bra is made from a higher denier Aero Flo fabric for added comfort. Full Dupont Teflon guarantees less resistance through the water, while the concealed pad is a first in the triathlon world – it’s designed for a modest look, with no stitching around the crotch. The four-panel construction is designed to reduce unnecessary stitching and promote aerodynamic movement. Inner comfort comes from a full zipper protection system and subtle silicone leg grippers. A men’s version is available.

We say:
Simple styling and a lack of pockets make the Zone3 suit another
racy number. It’s also one of the only women’s-specific suits on test that features a zip on the back. The bra area is reinforced with an extra layer of fabric and the shorts feature one of the biggest pads on test but they still feel comfortable on the run. You might need a little help doing up the zip, but once fastened, this suit feels snug and secure, and our tester loved the subtle styling.

some of the "we say" reviews have been repeated, I think the OP is pointing that out.

Sorry, I thought this was a serious forum for triathletes, clearly I was wrong.

So Meldy, what do you recommend....

Not particularly qualified as I am a chap but I would suggest the bust support would be more in the sports bra than in the tri-suit....after that I'm not sure there is much difference whther you are a beginner or a more expereinced athlete....

Others may know better......

...and Claire....chill....he was being (apparently) funny......

Claire, Mrs74 liked the Craft tri stuff, although at RRP then you'll not get one for £35.  However, it should be coming up for sales season over there now, and so you may get lucky.  I beleive she used her normal triumph something or other (white with red bits) running bra under her tri suit as it's designed for sporty stuff so is quick drying.
