After four meets with the lzr elite, the suit has reached it's end. The suit is so light that it is no heavier than a feather. It also feels amazing in the water. It feels like the water is slipping right by you, and you are being pushed forward. However you have to size down! I wear a 28, and I got a size 22. It also wears out quickly, but all racing suits do. Overall this is a great suit that I would recommend to anyone.

I got this suit because I had a bet with my dad that if I got one of my goal times I would get a fast skin. Well, the first time I wore the suit I felt like a super hero, invincible...but then, this past weekend I was putting it on before a race(only my 4th time)and the seam split! My dad didn't pay almost $400 for a suit to break on my 4th time wearing it. Being the one to wear the suit, I am not happy at all with the result. This is supposed to be the "elite" suit, but since this happened I don't know if I would ever spend the money to get it again.

    Comments about SPEEDO Fastskin LZR Racer Elite Recordbreaker Kneeskin:

    I have only been competitively swimming for three years so in my first year of swimming i used the FSII (which was amazing by the way) and in my second year i used the LZR RCR PRO...it had an amazing fit and once i put it on, i immediatly bettered all of my times (except for a lousy DQ) and finally in my third year, i got this suit, the LZR RCR ELITE. i am 5 foot 7 and i weigh 122 pounds and i was told to (by the clerk at the store) to get a size 22L and i tried it on (it took me a while but that should be normal) and it fit so i bought it. I was expecting a great championship season, which it was...EXCEPT...i wore this suit for a total of 4 swim meets and by the beginning of the second meet, it started to wear out. However, the first time i ever raced in the suit (i was expecting a great race, it was the 500 free) my suit had filled up with water! i was looking for the junior national cut but i missed it by a couple seconds. i didnt take off any time, i significantly added. i was so dissapointed in the suit. My friend had also gotten the same suit, she is a little shorter than me , i'd say 5"2 and she got a 26 and on her second meet, she put it on and the seam ripped! luckily she brought her back up suit. Overall, this suit is amazing and really gives you a great push...but it wears out too quickly and it is definitely not worth the money I paid for.

    Comments about SPEEDO Fastskin LZR Racer Elite Recordbreaker Kneeskin:

    I ordered this back in November to use at my high school champs and it did wonders! I made state cuts and dropped a lot of time. However, as expected, it did wear out quickly. I've worn it to a total of 4 big meets and it's done after about 12-15 swims. It thins out in the middle section near the stomach and the legs. It felt amazing in the water, as if you were slicing through the water, and now since it's older I didn't get the same effect. I highly recommend this suit, although if you're in championship season, I would also recommend you get another kneeskin to interchange with because it can prolong the life, when you're not constantly wearing it.
    It also did not rip or tear at all. The bonded seams are fantastic, as long as you don't tug on the suit as you get it on, or use your nails. Wash it out with cold water after your meets and do not stretch the suit!

    I bought this suit in July 2010. I used it at about 5 multi-day trials and finals meets before it stopped working as well. I used it at a couple more meets that weren't very important and now it has reached it's end. I feel like it didn't last as long as the FS-pro did but I really like the fit. This suit has a little more space for curves than others that I've seen and I'm a 34dd which is rare for swimmers at my level and it's nice to have a suit that fits. If you have a small chest I would lean towards a smaller size. This suit seems to run larger than other speedo tech suits.

    My daughter used the swim suit 6 times and it stretched out. It is a great swim suit and does help with the performance. It simply doesn't last as long as it should when you consider the cost of the swim suit. I would recommend to a friend BUT I would make sure they are aware of the limited amount of time it will last

    Comments about SPEEDO Fastskin LZR Racer Elite Recordbreaker Kneeskin:

    I have dropped sooo much time while wearing this suit. You feel really fast while wearing it. It wears out after about 4 or 5 meets that are 3-4 days long that includes finals. It is very expensive but eventhough it wears out it lasts pretty long for a racing suit. It also runs bid so i would go down 2-3 sizes from your practice suit. For example i am a 26 and i got a 23 and that was perfect for the suit.

    This suit lasted a grand total of 4 races over two meets before a seem split big time on the back. No warrantee support due to the length of time between the meets. This suit was cared for better than what was specified. Bottom line...we had a very bad experiance for a suit that cost nearly $400. We all think it was a waste of hard earned money even though it did help her shave some time off of her best times.

    I purchased a second LZR Elite as a back up to my first one. (which I found to be fast and well-fitting} Apparently they have modified the fabric to a lighter one that stretches out and provides little in the way of compression. The new model has black seam tape rather than red. This is not what one would expect in a [$] suit.

        Comments about SPEEDO Fastskin LZR Racer Elite Recordbreaker Kneeskin:

        This suit may not be the best selection for a very tall, lean swimmer. We purchased a size 23 (Smallest) based primarily on the body loop - the other measurements in the sizing guide were slightly larger than my daughter's measurement. Suit fit fine except for about 6" below her hips - bubbles or bulges on both sides. It did not fit to her rear correctly and she was advised not to compete in it. We can not return it, so if anyone wants one, please let us know!

        I'm a national swimmer that uses plenty of competition suits, but I'm also small for my size. If you are smaller like me, this suit is meant for a women with hips. Even the smallest size is still baggy in the hips. I would recommend the LZR elite recordbreaker instead.

          The worst thing about this suit is getting it on. But that's a given with all tech suits. When I swam with this suit on for the first time, I was truly amazed at how comfortable it was and how well I could move in it. This suit helped me to become #1 in the state for backstroke!

          I loved this suit! I dropped huge amounts of time and the fit is amazing. Last weekend was my 3rd time wearing it, and i noticed that the seam on my hip had split and the red was showing. I was very upset. This had actually happened to three of my friends and I have seen three people with actual holes in their seams. despite being an amazing tech suit, it does not hold up well and i will probably switch brands for my next suit.
