Things I Love: TYR Sport Swimsuits

Happy St. Patrick's Day, everyone! It was a gorgeous day, so we went out for a ride. Gorgeous ... until the ridiculous wind kicked up.

Anyway, that's not what today's post is about. Today is another in the "Things I Love" series ... which means, as a reminder, I am not sponsored by TYR (though if they want to change that, I'm all for it). I just love their swimsuits.

As a triathlete, I swim. Not as much as I probably should, but still a decent amount. Therefore, I obviously need a swimsuit. I also have a weirdly long torso, so I prefer two-piece suits as they fit better (I also seriously cannot remember how to squeeze my body into a one-piece. I tried a few years back; it was awkwardly awful and also, looking back on it, hilarious).

The brand that I keep coming back to - especially now because I know how their suits fit on my body - is TYR Sport. I've owned four suits by them - two of the exact same (the middle in the photo below). I love the fit, the durability and the option for fun prints.

Completely fun, right? The one on the left was, quite possibly, the first swimsuit I bought for triathlon purposes. As mentioned above, I had two versions of the middle - stretched out the top. The one on the right is my newest that I just got and it is bright and happy and AWESOME.

The suits are comfortable and last for ... if I had to estimate, about 50 miles worth of pool swimming (based off wear of my last suit and last season's usage). They're relatively affordably priced and I love how I can just go with a size and know that it's going to fit my body. For a female who typically wears two different sizes on her top and bottom, that is an extremely helpful thing.

So. If you swim or are looking to get into it (or know someone who is) and need a new suit, maybe try out a suit by TYR.
