newbie question on women's attire

Post by ass.. » Tue, 22 Jun 1999 04:00:00


Hi!
        I'm triaing for my first tri, and I went to see a local one this
weekend to watch and learn. I was especially interested in transitions.
*Anyway* I noticed most people simply wore their swimsuits the entier
time. That's fine for me in the bike leg, but I'm a little too,uh,
chesty to run any distance without more support than I can get from my
Speedo. I can't be the only 'round' woman in the triathalon world,
so what do the rest of you do? I considered simply swimming in a sport
bra and suit bottoms, but thought that might get too clammy. I also
thought I could put on a sport bra over my suit for the run, but I'm
open to any suggestions you folks might have.

Thanks! (I apologize if this is a repeat message; my browser crashed
just as I sent send before)

I've seen women with sports bras under their one-piece swimsuits. I've
also seen nylon/lycra sports bras with swim bottoms. Whatever you decide
to wear, make sure to avoid cotton. It takes too long to dry and may
chafe.

Good luck,
Sim

newbie question on women's attire

My wife swears by two piece "tri suits."  They're available from the
regular tri outlets.  Basically, the bottom is a speedo-style brief,
with a small pad to ease the riding discomfort.  The top is as tight, if
not tighter, than a sports bra.  It dries way quicker than any sport ba,
and provides loads of support.  She's not what you'd call a "Rubenesque"
woman, but she has no problem finding enough support with this set up.

I realize this posting  begs for a response from women, but I thought
I'd at least get the ball rolling.

Good luck with your first

Well since you mentioned it, I like to race in my De Soto two-piece
race suit as well. After running from the water to the trans area, I
don't even have to dry myself off, it's that good! Just grab the bike
and go. And I like that the bottom has a drawstring so there is no
accidental disrobing of the bum.

Yeah, right, maybe not visually, but perhaps this explains the
"Clutching and grabbing in the swim!" thread.  He's doing 'equipment'
inspections in the water.

Given the posts over in the CO2 thread - I don't think being sent to their
rooms will be much of a punishment.
