The triathlon race suit, never before have functionality and fashion struggled to exist in perfect harmony. Your tri suit is such a crucial part of race day comfort but for years women have battled with a series of less than ideal limitations when it comes to this lycra ensemble.
Previously they had been designed for men, then women started competing and men’s suits were splashed with a panel of pink or purple, made in smaller sizes and sold for women. Disaster. And this is how sausages and camels became part of the triathlon race scene.
Sausage legs (or arms) are the result of bands that are too tight squishing your thighs or biceps creating a sausage like look with your limbs. We think sausages are better post-race, definitely not during.
A ‘camel toe’ is the unfortunate result of one’s suit riding up too high in the crutch creating a wedge like appearance and causing discomfort to one’s lady parts. Camels are rude, angry creatures, need we say more?
There are some other obvious issues with women wearing men’s suits, both sexes have body parts the other doesn’t, in different locations on the body. We need extra room upstairs; they need it down. Ladies have hips, boobs and excuse the blunt tone, no balls. It’s a simple fact.
Plus we really deserve more than a panel of pink or purple. We work our arses off to get to the start line of those events, on race day we want to stand out. Wear a suit that is bold, unique and fun. A suit that is worthy of the effort we’ve put in to get to the starting line.
Navi suits cater for a women’s body. The prints are bold and will ensure you don’t get lost in the crowd. The body contains extra length to prevent camels from becoming part of your race day. The arm bands and legs are silicone free and are carefully designed to be firm but not squish. The suits are designed and manufactured in Australia using premium fabric made from recycled plastic bottles which means you can feel good whilst you’re looking good. Ladies, lycra just got sexy!
