    You could just wear your tri suit like most people likely will,

    For Ironman non wetsuit swims you are allowed to wear a swimskin /speedsuit over your trisuit then remove in T1, they can be exepensive and offer no buoyancy just help you glide through the water faster.

    Recommend doing a google search for more info.

    Good Luck in Miami and have fun.

  • Hi. Not much more to add to what bathtub wrote.

    I did Miami 70.3 in 2015 and I just wore my trisuit, which was totally fine. Quite a few people were wearing swim skins but it's quite a big investment for a one-off event.

    Have fun
