Good Buy

Posted28 June 2011
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight, Looks great, smart but girly colour-way!
Ordered this because I've had Pearl Izumi gear before and found it to be good quality, it was a competitive price, bearing in mind I'm new to triathlons, and, yes, have to admit, I liked the colour way - can't go wrong with black, white and pink! When I first tried it on, it felt very tight, especially the separate bra (I'm a 10 at the bottom, but probably nearer a 12 at the top), but, in practice, it works. I gave it a test run last Sunday and it's very comfortable to train in. Ticked all my boxes, anyway, long enough in the body so it felt OK in the water, supportive enough at the top for running, the legs are anchored at the base so it stays put, sufficient padding on the bum for a short-medium cycle ride. Overall very happy with my purchase. Only thing I would say, though, is that I've not tried any other brands of tri-suit, but I think I'd be hard pushed to have got something better for the price - well pleased.

Very Comfortable Suit

Posted21 January 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Looks great
Bought this in the sale to compete in a "fun" mini triathlon, didn't want to wear my club trisuit! I'm a size 8-10 and I bought the medium, it fits perfectly. The material is substantial without being heavy and the leg grippers do their job without being too tight. Great suit for anyone starting out in triathlon especially if you can get it in the sale.

Excellent fitting trisuit

Posted24 August 2011
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Comfortable, Looks great, good fit
This is a great fitting tri-suit - surely the most important thing - but it looks great too. It curves in the right places, is flattering and doesn't gape anywhere. The separate bra-top is a bonus although both suit and top are smaller than usual. I normally buy size 8-10 but I needed a medium! Everything else is brilliant, the suit is comfortable in all disciplines with no rubbing or chafing. I would really recommend it - you definitely get what you pay for and if you do order the wrong size, Evans make it easy to return things.

Great fit and looks good too!

Posted30 May 2011
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Comfortable, Looks great, feels suportive
Cons: weird sizing of the separate bra!
I had been looking for a more colourful trisuit for a while, and I'm a big fan of Pearl Izumi bike kit, so I didn't have to think twice about ordering this suit when I saw it on the Evans website.
I'm really pleased with the suit itself. The fit is tight and feels supportive when I run and ride. And the blue panels at the side help define my shape so it looks good too.
I'd tried on other suits with integral bras and it was such a struggle to get into them that I decided against that style. So,
in theory, the separate 'crop-top' style bra of this suit seemed like the perfect solution. However, the separate bra that came with my suit was so tiny I couldn't even start to put it on!
I'm a size 12, with bra size 36B, so I ordered the medium size. Because the suit itself fits so perfectly I'm not sure if the sizing of the bra is out-and-out wrong or whether I received a smaller size by mistake. Evans have kindly put me in touch with the UK distributor for Pearl Izumi to help resolve the problem.
Meanwhile, I'm lucky enough to be able to wear the suit without the bra, so it's not the end of the world for me.
Overall I'm very happy with this purchase after a long wait to find something that I really liked.

Sizing guide

Posted12 April 2011
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Looks great
It looks and feels great! The colour strip gives your waist a nice definition against the black, give your waist a slim look. Just a word of caution re: sizing. I'm a size 12, and the medium was too tight. Get yourself the large if in doubt.
