Swimming speedsuits

Post by surfydude »

Who here loved the special speedsuits made famous during the Olympics and professional comps during 2000-2009, before FINA banned them? For me it was a very good reason to watch the swimming on TV! Who would forget Ian Thorpe's suit? Some coverage for once instead of skimpy speedos, but sadly we're back to that or jammers.

I guess they're hard to find now, but lycra compression tights are similar. A hunky dude was chilling by a local pool in something like that.

Are you talking about this suit?...

These are really tight. I tried one once. It took ages to get on even though it was the right size.

The LZR was probably the most famous of the body suits. It was actually quite sheer and easy to see through with the exception of the screen printed panels.

Its was not the only suit of its type and the other makes were also banned by FINA, including a rather nice one by Arena.

I'd love one but they are super expensive, and I already have too much gear I want
