How do you wear a wetsuit for a triathlon?
- Underneath your triathlon wetsuit you wear a tri suit. Tri suits are designed to stay on all day – from the swim and onto the bike and thru the run. They’ll quickly dry out once you get on the bike and start riding. Once you get out of the water, unzip your wetsuit and pull it down to your waist.

What do females wear for a triathlon?
Some women can get away with a tight triathlon suit, while others are more comfortable in a sporty swimsuit top or a moisture-wicking sports bra that will not get saturated during the swim. Make sure all your attire, including your sports bra, is ‘tried and true’ come race day.

A triathlon suit/kit is typically made of a moisture-wicking material and has a small pad in the short for cycling. The pad is thin, unlike the thick chamois pad for cycling, so you will want to spend some time on your bike wearing it ahead of time in order to get accustomed to less padding.

Urinating inside a dry wetsuit is definitely not a good idea – it will start stinking and corroding the seams and stitching of your second skin. While in the lineup, if peeing is the only option, let some saltwater get in and drain out, avoiding lying down on your board for a long time.
