The Draw: Killer Buoyancy
Hip draggers and “flat” swimmers will definitely want to check out the Wave 3. Our tester raved about how the construction of this suit helped with side-to-side balance. The shoulders may feel stiff to some during the recovery phase, making it ideal for a more long, steady stroke rather than a shoulder-driven punchy technique. Solid construction made us feel like this suit will take regular training and racing without breaking down—the initial sti ness that you get with a somewhat beefier suit softens up a bit with use. Easy on and off, the Wave 3 comes in eight sizes to help you find the perfect fit.
