Important new sizing info added February 2013! Please read this description and the sizing chart thoroughly! You don't have to be a scientist to know the competitive advantage of this revolution in elite performance suits. Created from one piece of bonded fabric, the Nike FLEX LT helps destroy drag and lets you slice through the water in a completely streamlined, stabilizing no-seam suit. With bonded seams and a compressed fit to help keep water out, it's the optimum option in lightweight swim technology. Because even the laws of nature were meant to be broken. - No elastic in straps - No sew bonded seams - Reinforced bonded back strap - Bonded gripper on interior leg opening - 80% nylon.20% spandex - The standard size is designed for female swimmers with longer torsos. The R sizes are designed for swimmers with regular length and shorter length torsos.
- The choice between the standard and the R size has nothing to do with the height of the swimmer, only the torso length. It is possible that a taller swimmer may have a short torso and a shorter swimmer may have a long torso.
