Size Chart

Use these measurements when determining the size suit you need to order.  If you are between sizes, we recommend ordering the smaller size.

A Torso place beginning of tape measure on your shoulder at your neck. Run tape measure over the fullest portion of your bust down between your legs and up your back to the starting point on your shoulder.

B Bust measure beginning under your arm, over the fullest part of your bust and around your back to the starting point under your arm.

C Waist bend to one side to find the crease of your natural waist. Stand straight. For female suits, measure around your natural waist making sure to allow one finger between your body and the tape. For male suits, measure 1" (2.5cm) below natural waist or just above the hip bone.

Important Sizing Information

Trying On Swimwear Swimsuits must be tried on over underwear due to U.S. Government Health Department regulations. Suits that have been worn against the skin may not be returned by law.

Sample suits If you need to see a Agonswim.com suit before you decide to order, Agonswim.com can send you a sample suit.  However, Agonswim.com is too small to provide teams with free samples. We are willing to send you a suit to examine for quality, but you will have to return it to Agonswim.com. We will need a credit card number from your team’s representative before we can send you the samples. In the case that you do not return the suit(s), we will charge your account for the sample(s). Another way to go is to buy an affordable "grab bag" suit that you can actually test out in the water.

Sizing Kit / Try on suits After the design of your team suit is finalized and approved, we will send you a sizing kit so that each swimmer can be sure to get the correct Agonswim.com size. We will need a credit card number from your team’s representative before we can send you the sizing kit. In the case that you do not return the suit(s), we will charge your account for the sizing kit. All teams should order a sizing kit, as it is not possible to exchange custom swimwear after it has been made.

Fitting Agonswim.com uses a high quality Lycra® that does not stretch out like other manufacturers’ suits. Therefore, you should not feel that your Agonswim.com suit fits tightly. Agonswim.com suits will not "relax" or stretch out over time, so make sure your suit fits comfortably now. For individual orders, if your suit it too tight, it will wear unevenly and will not last very long. If you think your suit is too tight, send it back before you wear it, and we’ll exchange it for another size (please note that US Health Dept. regulations preclude returning suits that have been worn). This offer, however, does not apply to custom suits. It is not possible to exchange custom swimwear after it has been made. All teams should order a sizing kit prior to placing their order to make sure they receive the correct sizes.

A Word on Undersizing Many swimmers believe that in order to swim fast, they need to buy a suit that is too small. When swimmers do this, they shorten the life of their swimsuit. In order to swim fast, swimmers can order a variety of Agonswim.com products, including streamline suits, and our elite suits (streamline). These suits are not lined and are cut higher in the leg; therefore they are lighter for competition. However, we still do not recommend undersizing in any of our products.

A Word on Competitive Swimming A typical swim season consists of many practices, some midseason or dual meets while still practicing, a period of "tapering" or resting for the important, end-of-season competition, and the big meet itself. Some coaches may want swimmers to undersize their suits so that they can "swim fast." The need for a lighter suit is only necessary at your most important meet. Serious swimmers will often buy a racing style suit especially for that meet. These suits are cut smaller, are unlined to be lighter, and are often made of special material, such as streamline. Agonswim.com offers an elite cut suit in all three types of fabric for your big meet. If your coach insists that you must wear an undersized, fully lined, Lycra® suit, rather than buying two suits for the season, you will have to follow his/her request, but keep in mind you will significantly shorten the life of your Lycra® suit by wearing it too small.

Washing Your Agonswim.com suit will last the longest if you do not machine wash it. Soap and shampoo contain detergents that harm Lycra®. It is important to rinse your suit in cold, clean water each time you wear it to remove chlorine and perspiration. It is best to hang your suit to dry, rather than leaving it in a bag or rolled up in a towel.

Quality Agonswim.com uses the highest quality materials and sewing processes for all its suits. However, it is a fact of life that Lycra® fabric has a limited usable life in chlorinated water. How long your Agonswim.com suit lasts depends on the fit of the suit, how you take care of the suit, and the pool conditions where you use your suit.

Size Conversion Information This size conversion is provided to give you a general orientation for the size swimsuit you might wear. Agonswim.com has tried to keep its sizes in line with industry standards, but slight variations from one manufacturer to another invariably occur. Individuals should feel free to try on your suit when you receive it, and if it does not feel comfortable, you may return it for a different size. (Health regulations stipulate that swimwear that it is soiled, worn, damaged or laundered is consider to be in other than "as new" condition and cannot be returned.) This offer, however, does not apply to custom suits. It is not possible to exchange custom swimwear after it has been made. All teams should order a sizing kit prior to placing their order to make sure they receive the correct sizes.
