I know this is an old thread, but this is all really interesting!
Thats all really interesting, I've just signed up for my first Aquathlon in November and was ponderig what to wear etc...so this is all great...
If you choose not to wear a Top after the swim, what do you do about numbers do you just run with the numbers thats are printed on your body?
I guess you can swim in the tri suits, silly question I guess, as they are made for tri, but how quickly does the water thats absorbed in the pad disperse?
Although I am a guy I would suggest its not a cotton sports bra as will be wet and rub during the run - definitely test this out by running from a pool session. The other day I used a tee that I normally don't run in and got a really bad case of "chest" rubbing! Also remember to but the number on while the t-shirt is worn (I always crinkle mine up too) that way the number isn't going to tear off while you're struggling with the tee (or less likely)... mainly that's why most wear race belts for the ease of transition.
Coupie: I think some event penalise you if you haven't got a number - best to check the rules of the race - and how they are to be worn..... back/front or both....
Good luck all
The belt of the bra should sit exactly horizontal and so tight that only two fingers fit between it and the body. Then the belt takes on the main load, and the straps only fix the cups in place and do not put pressure on the shoulders. Otherwise, you will have a feeling of tightness in the neck and shoulders, chafing and even headaches. Or I am thinking maybe I should buy an orthopedic https://ortorex.com/p/bra/ bra? Isn’t it harmful if to wear it every day?
