Tri Suit Size

Hi all,

Just received my 1st tri-suit in the post today. - A 2XU Endurance one.

Question is how tight should it be?
I can get into it but struggle to hoist it over my shoulders. - Zip has to be fully up, or fully down. (I'm somewhat broad chested & anywhere in the middle & the suit won't hold.)

Once fully done it feels ok, ie not restrictive, but the fabric feels like it is at it's limit.

Debating ordering the next size up (L) on the basis that i'll return one??

Any thoughts / advice appreciated.

    The suit doesn't fit mate. check the sizing chart they provide. go a size up for defo, it should feel a bit like youre wearing your birthday suit when it's on.

    2XU come up a size small in my opinion. I went up a size.

    Cheers guys....

    New larger one on the way.

    I take it that with wetsuits though the tighter the better? - Still getting used to that somewhat restricted feeling in the shoulders!

    nope, wetsuit needs to feel like a second skin too. you need plenty of freedom in the shoulders otherwise they'll really start to burn when you swim for a bit! can you find a good shop where you can try one on?
