– If you are new to triathlon, welcome to snugness and don't be scared! You want these garments to be fitted and snug. You do NOT want them baggy as it defeats the purpose of being aerodynamic while on the bike and wearing this kit underneath your wetsuit (if that's your preference.) The hardest part is just getting used to fitted garments. Most often it's not the wrong size, it's just YOU getting accustomed to it. (Seriously, you pull the garments out of the bags and all you think is, "There is NO WAY I will fit into this." #truth
Sizing tips from Mel:
In the product photos, I am wearing a medium top and small short. I am 5'10 and top length was totally fine. When I started my Ironman training, I wore a medium short and medium top. I eventually went to a size small short because I wanted them tighter. Do not fear the snugness! While I COULD have went to a small top, it felt a little too snug for my liking. Aside from triathlon, I absolutely love my shorts for running - both small and medium. I don't wear anything else now! I wear them for all long runs - you get used to the pad very quickly. Plus, I chafe between my thighs and the longer length short eliminated this for me.
In athletic gear, and as you figure out your size, here's my info:
Athleta - Small / Size 6 (sometimes 4)
Lululemon - Small / Size 6
Nike - Medium
Under Armour - Medium
Champion (from Target) - Small
Pants size is 4/6
Chest is 36A
Weight is 150
I carry most of my weight in my thighs, hip, butt area :) I am not a fan of things hugging my belly (seriously, who is after three kids?) so I preferred the medium top for running/biking.
Additional Sizing Review from our good friend Nancy:
I'm quite particular about what I wear, especially to sweat and go the distance in, and this does not disappoint in any way. Yes, the sizing seems daunting - I spent two full weeks investigating it before I ordered. I'm wearing a large top and xl shorts in the photo and they are perfect. I'm 5'4 and, well, sturdy and well-endowed. I was worried about the dreaded sausage legs from cycling shorts - not a problem (they don't have the sticky grippers but do not ride up in any way no matter what you do to them). I was worried about chaffing (in every way you could and couldn't imagine) - not a problem. I was worried about the skinny waistband instead of my preferred wide waistband - not a problem. I was worried that the top would be too tight on my chest to fit elsewhere - not a problem. Put your fear aside and feel the joy of running and/or riding in this kit! For perspective: in Athleta I wear a medium in the recycled poly and a large in the regular poly/spandex bottoms, a large in Nike capris, an 8/10 in Lululemon and a medium in Brooks. I'm a pretty standard women's large for tops. For FF sizing: I'm a medium in most of the tech tanks/tees, a large in the statement tanks. In real life (because sadly I don't just get to sweat all day), I'm an 8 or medium for White House Black Market and Ann Taylor skirts and an 8/10 or medium for dresses.
