The Speedo suits of my youth came in racer back and nothing else. They were functional, but not really stylish, let alone sexy. Well, times they are a changin' and now Speedo is designing suits with sexy backs. One is even named "corset" - how sexy is that?
These new styles are made with XDskin, a new water repellent fabric that absorbs less water and helps you stay drier. Since it dries quickly it is great for multi-sport training for triathlons. The suits come in either red or black, adding to their sex appeal. I also like how the T-back pictured above cuts in at the waist to emphasize your curves. Plus they are Speedos so you know they are going to stay on your body when you dive and flip turn. So stylish and functional now that is a suit I can get behind.
The only drawback to these suits is their price. You can buy them directly from Speedo for around $98, which seems like a lot for a suit to wear for swimming laps. I for one, though, would wear these to the beach too.
