Reviews for BALEAF Women's Conservative Athletic Racerback One Piece Training Swimsuit Swimwear Bathing Suit
People say Baleaf is really similar to Tyr.
Great deal, good quality, realistic price
Same quality of a speedo or tyr at half the price
Well made, fits perfectly and has removable bra pads
So far, this is the best swimsuit for lap swimming I've ever bought and the most satisfied I think I've ever been with an Amazon purchase. It fits perfectly, looks good and is well-made. The bra pads are removable which was also important to me. It's so nice to have an athletic swimsuit that is attractive without trying to reveal parts of your body to be "sexy" which ends up just interfering with swimming. It's also a good price from an unobtrusive, little-known brand and doesn't force you to advertise a mega corporation like Nike or TYR. Such a relief NOT to have to wear the check mark!
good fit and quality
I am 5'2", 116 lb. and ordered size 36 & 34, as I was unsure which size would fit. After trying on both, I decided size 36 was more comfortable and I returned size 34. This suit fits me better than the more expensive Tyr brand that I had for my last 2 swimsuits. It is also polyester, so should not fade from swimming in pools. I also liked that it is lined unlike the Tyr suits.
Good for lap swimming
I wear this suit for lap swimming, four hours a week. It has held up for a long time. I grew up wearing competitive suits, but alas, my frumpy middle age body can't comfortably squeeze into those anymore. This is double lined and has a built in bra, so it is thicker than a traditional lap suit (like Speedo or Tyr), but it also covers my booty and back fat a heck of a lot better. I am usually a size 16/18, and bought a 42. It is looser than a traditional practice suit, but fits my needs perfectly (last a long time, an excellent price, and holds the wobbly bits in). I only wish the chest came up higher for lap swimming, as I sometimes have to yank it up.
Fabulous Suit for Swimmers.
No chafing; bum stays inside the suit; modest coverage. This is a great swimsuit for swimming. The design has minimal linear inches of edges, which reduces drag. Wide straps are comfortable without restricting your stroke. Generous skin coverage minimizes the need for sunscreen. Some swimmers may not like the foam bra cups. I like the nipple concealment. I wear size 38 Speedo; 34 TYR and 32 in this swimsuit. Order at least one size smaller than your usual size.
Got this suit after having a horrible experience with a TYR suit (even though I used to buy TYR all the time) and was SO surprised at how amazing this suit was! Chest felt covered and supported, fit great through the midsection, and the straps are the perfect length. Great suit, would recommend.
just bought my second one
I lap swim about 2x/week. I've been wearing only this swimsuit for a year. Historically, I've worn Speedos and TYRs. I like this better than either, to the point I just bought another one in the same size but a different color. The first one is still not faded, but it will be nice to have two. This is the first suit for lap swim I got that had breast cups. I was worried that would bother me, but it does not. It's a good amount of stretch and support, and I find the suit very comfortable: no chafing anywhere and appropriately modest. It doesn't dry quickly but it also isn't showing wear, and I'd rather have it thick and not wear out than thin and wear out.
