What Do I Wear?

This is definitely one of the most frequently asked questions of women doing their first triathlon. For my first triathlon, I just wore my cossie for the swim and pulled on a pair of shorts and a T Shirt when I got to transition. A word of warning – you will still be wet from the swim, so pulling on really tight fitting clothes can be a major struggle!

A tri suit is great because you just wear it for everything. It certainly makes it easier but they can be quite expensive. If you do want one, shop around or go to other triathlons where they have stalls selling gear.

Skirt Sports is an excellent option. They have a great range of clothes that look great and are very cleverly designed for active women.

Find something that you will feel comfortable in while you do the tri and wear it a few times while you train just to be sure.
