Reviews for BALEAF Women's Athletic Training Adjustable Strap One Piece Swimsuit Swimwear Bathing Suit
People say Baleaf is really similar to Tyr.
A Great Value!
This suit just arrived today, and I'm already back to buy another. I swam competitively for over a decade and have taught swimming for fifteen years. All that to say, I've owned A LOT of suits in my life. I'll be honest, I was leery of these suits; I've been loyal to Speedo and Tyr my whole life. I only bought this brand because of the price and the Prime shipping as I needed a solid color suit for a new job that starts next week and didn't have time to wait for any of the Speedos here to be delivered. The quality on this suit is amazing. It's fully lined with the same material as the outer layer, which is really unusual. No fear of the butt wearing out and going see-through. It's got adjustible straps, which is helpful if you are short-waisted and small-chested like me. The built in cups offer a nice shape. It's got low-cut legs, which is nice; this isn't a suit that's going to creep up on you. That's the good. Here are the downsides... If you are used to purchasing training suits, buy the size you usually do. Ignore the reviews that say to size up. I am a solid 36 in Speedo (5'4", 145 lbs, small chest, narrow hips), but I sized up to a 38 based on the reviews. The suit is very comfortable but definitely too big, with wrinkles at the back and hips. It'll work for teaching, but it would be uncomfortable as a workout suit. With the bra cups, I'm not sure it would work for me as a lap suit anyway, but that's a personal preference. It is also a bit long in the torso, but as I ... Read More

I just got this suit in. I used to be on a swim team and recently decided I'm more comfortable in an athletic one-piece than any other suit I could get. I had a hard time finding which one I wanted. I got this because it was affordable and because it had some padding in the chest. I don't have a big chest and even though this is an athletic suit, I will mostly be using it for just recreational swimming and didn't want something mashing down my boobs. This suit does not have as much compression as the tyr and speedo suits I used to wear, just so you know. Again, this isn't a huge problem because I'm not buying it to actually race in. It is very comfortable so far. I got a size 36 and probably could've gotten a 34, but that's probably my fault. I haven't swam in it, I'm planning to go this afternoon. But so far I really like this suit.
SwimSuit for lap swimming
I like the style for lap swimming. For reference I’m 5’5 ,130 lbs, bra size 32DDD average torso length and the size 32 fits perfectly. I used to be a Speedo loyalist but switched to this brand for the style and the fit. It cost half the price of the Speedo suit which is an added bonus. I compared this with the Speedo and the TYR in similar styles and this one won because 1) it has pads so no nipples are showing when you’re out of the pool; 2) adjustable straps 3) material feels like it will last as it has double layers. Highly recommend! Plus it’s free return shipping if it does not fit! Get this suit if you like to swim laps.
Perfect - very comfortable but be weary of the bra pads
I was surprised to find the quality of this suit on par with Speedo and TYR. Fit was as expected (I purchased size 42). I wore it in the water for aqua fit and it held up well! The built in bra pad was too small for my chest, but that's expected because I'm a 38E so all built in pads usually run small for me. I am very pleased with the quality and the color is true to picture. I will remember this brand and buy more from them in the future.
Fantastic suit - fit, cut, and material quality
This is a wonderful suit for swimming laps. I like the cut and fit better than the Speedo/Tyr suits I’ve had in the past and am thinking about buying a second one of these to keep as a backup. So far it’s held up really well to use 3-4 days a week. After finishing my laps I rinse it off in the shower and put it in the drying machine, so it gets some tough handling.
Daughter loves this suit. She wanted a TYR since the other swim instructors use them but she is very happy with this suit. It fits well and seems well made. I would buy another one if she wears this one out.
Fits great and it’s good quality
Great suit! Love the fit and the quality is the same as my $80 TYR suit! Definitely would buy this brand/suit again!
Love this suit - great coverage for fuller figures
I absolutely love this suit. I am a lap swimmer/open water swimmer & I have a large bust and derriere. I absolutely hate the lack of coverage in bust/butt in most swimsuits (sorry Speedo and TYR) and I hate other people staring at my chest. So I am beyond thrilled with this suit & have it in 2 colors. I bought one for lap swimming and one for more recreational use around the beach/pool. These hold up well in the chlorine and salt/fresh water, especially for this price. The fabric is thick throughout. The leg holes provide more coverage, so there's not any slippage and if your booty is fuller you're safe - no unintentional cheeky style. For a full bust, this suit provides sufficient coverage - no cleavage, no accidental reveals; and the padding provides enough shield to hide any nipple show-through. The straps are adjustable, so for a large bust like mine they are pulled almost entirely tight to provide enough support. The back opening is also supportive but not super tight. I remember stuffing myself into Speedos, and although I've had to struggle out of this suit when wet (mainly the straps which you can loosen), it's nothing like a tight Speedo. If you are looking for visual coverage in the midsection area, I recommend one of the printed styles or darker colors as they are flattering and help with that. Hope this is helpful for other fuller figures. As I've gotten older & fuller hourglass figure Speedos just aren't an option for me anymore, but I missed having a firm sui... Read More
Surprisingly good quality swimsuit
I was honestly surprised with how thick the material was, I was expecting something a bit cheaper in quality, so that was a huge bonus. I actually bought this for a mommy and me swim class. The cut of the legs is a little more conservative than what is shown in the stock photo (I’m more used to competitive swimsuit cuts like Nike, TYR and Speedo) but it isn’t a bad thing, especially being postpartum. I also like that there are cups/liners sewn in and the straps in the back are adjustable. Overall I’m really satisfied with this purchase.
