While I am not signed up for any tris yet, I am working toward that goal and training as if I am. My dumb question is - WHAT DO I WEAR? I cannot see myself wearing a swimsuit on the bike and run. It would drive me up a frekaing wall. Ladies, what do you wear?? I know about tri suits, but what other options are there?<br><br>
Sorry to be dumb. I am just a tri-newbie, having previously only been a runner.

I wear a pair of tri shorts and a tri top with a built in bra for the whole race, with my wetsuit overtop of it for the swim.<br><br>
Believe me, I would have major chafing issues if I tried to wear a swimsuit while biking and running....it wouldn't be pretty!

ABBIE--since I need the support of a heavy duty sports bra--I have worn my sports bra and my shorts UNDER my bathing suit and wet suit--than in T1 I take off my wet suit and bathing suit, slap on a shirt and my sneakers--and I am good to go.......

I've only done one sprint. I wore tri shorts, sports bra and running shirt. I had done a bunch of bricks, and figured out which shirt worked best. Now, however, I would wear a tri top because it's tighter fitting (less drag).<br><br>
Hint for you--ride all you want in regular cycling shorts. But, unless you are up for a major case of diaper rash, do not attempt to do a tri in them.

Why do you need a bathing suit if you have a wetsuit, shorts and bra?<br><br>
For IMFL I wore a bra and shorts under wetsuit...<br><br>
Trying to picture myself in a tri outfit w/a bathing suit on.<br><br>
Waste of time in T1

TITHERS---I wore a suit over my bra so I didnt expose too much belly fat to everybody..I was/am very self conscious of my fat and try to limit my exposure. This season, however, I think i would skip the swim suit and just wear my tri outfit under my wet suit...
