Great advice on your body shape and leotard. If you’re not really sure what sort of leotard might fit or look best – check out this video for some excellent advice on colour and style of leotard that may suit your body type and skin tone.
Lexi raises some interesting points here – is there space for a gothic or other fashion sense. I think so – with so many people making their own lycra / workout wear and with printable lycra being easy to come by – there has to be others who want a different look – how about fit and fat or gothic… get in touch if you workout in lycra and mash up different genres of clothing for fun!
Some uplifting beats, aerobics and unitards – thanks Mon Journal
New 02 Tri Suit – $70.00 AUD online
The great thing about the 02 Tri Suit is the ability to pretty much run, swim, go to the gym and have a really intense workout and not worry about having to change your clothing between activities.
Tri suits, whilst made for triathlons are a really functional piece of workout attire. A typical workout might include a run or walk to get the body warm, followed by a gym workout with weights, To finish off a workout might also include a swim at the end (just shower though so you are clean before you get in).
O2 Compression makes this Black Men’s Trisuit and states that the benefits include:
o2fit’s triathlon suits is sleek and fitted in a way to give you the best performance in both your triathlon training and on the big day.
The suit allows you to swim, ride and run without needing to spend time changing gear during the transitions. Most professional triathletes will wear a triathlon suit because it offers an all-in-one, multi-purpose garment that can be worn from the moment you arrive, right through to the recovery period after the event.
Our triathlon suits include chamois padding (micro fleece 85% polyester + 15% spandex) in the crotch for comfort during the ride, while not impeding swimming or running ability.
They are made from quick dry material which will ensure that you dry off as quickly as possible between the swim and the ride to prevent chafe.
Other benefits include:
- Leg grippers so you don’t have to worry about the short legs riding up while you train or race
- Reduced drag in the water to ensure you perform at your best and aren’t overworked in the early stages of the event reducing muscle oscillation upon ground contact increasing torque generated about joints
- Reducing the risk of injury by enhancing recovery following strenuous exercise by aiding in the removal of blood lactate and improving subsequent exercise performance increasing feelings of positive leg sensations both during and following strenuous exercise
- Reducing the effects of delayed onset muscle soreness in the days following strenuous exercise
Our strategic flat-lock stitching means enhanced comfort and a great fit.
Does o2fit compression products have a UV rating?
Yes, all of our products have a UV rating of 50+.

I enjoy the freedom of wearing lycra, and really who cares what anyone thinks!
This blog is about providing practical advice and support to those who want to feel confident in their chosen workout gear and wear lycra.
This site is dedicated to those of us who like wearing and working out in Lycra. Typical sports you might see lycra include:
- Sport Aerobics
As you can see there are a huge range of sports which you can do in lycra or spandex.
The main benefits are:
- Superior comfort and stretch
- Easy to clean and quick drying
- Ability to wick away sweat, through lycra fabrics such as Tactel
- Custom crazy colour lycra
- Support for muscles, reducing injury and fatigue
I think these are the main benefits, however I will update the list if you can think of any more!
I will post lots of pictures of some lycra fashion, some old and some new as well as people and their lycra journey – whether it be to lose weight, gain fitness or even gain self acceptance.
But most important if you want to get fit and feel good, lycra never lies – so lose it in lycra and have fun!
