I only like the thin nylon speedos, but they're getting harder to find.

    It's not 100% nylon, but sells 100% polyester Tyr suits. They say they last 3 times longer.

    It's the Lycra or Spandex, decomposing after exposure to excessive chlorine. Try to swim in a river, lake or pool without kids (or adults) using the pool as a urinal.

    Better yet, just swim naked!

    The places where I swim doesn't allow kids on the adult sides,but I think they must use chlorine. My newest suit was ruined in less than three months of partial use. My older 100% nylon suits just go on and on... I keep wanting to ask the manager what kind of water treatment they use. There are two -- chlorine and bromine, plus the special ones for pools with kids, who add urine. Yuck! I only like to swim in clean water, really clean water...

    For years I thought my pool was treated with bromine, and I was told that it was. I was recently told that the pool was, in fact, treated with chlorine. However, it is computer controlled and you cannot smell the chlorine or chloramines in the pool. Regardless, nylon/spandex suits simply don't last very long when exposed to chlorine - the spandex (lycra) simply disintegrates. However, if properly treated with chlorine (where you can't smell it), I find that my eyes don't burn, my skin doesn't itch and my lungs don't get irritated.

    I use to get them, but they don't stretch at all. I did like the tight feel of them. I think the company was "Ocean". I still have one, but I'm not sure if they make female suits. Good luck with this one hunny. Happy swimming.

  8. Posted by An EP User on November 22nd, 2014 at 2:52 PM has suits with 83% nylon and only 13% lycra. Feels like you're wearing nothing at all when you have to wear something. Men's and ladies'.

    Good luck.
