and it's already back on ebay.  It was the 2xu long distance trisuit. I got it for $50 brand new with tags so I just couldn't resist pulling the trigger.  When it came in I tried it on and man was it comfortable, but all the while I knew the mirror test was going to be the final decision.  

I walked in front of the mirror, and it wasn't TERRIBLE(not good mind you). The next test was the wet test, I threw some water on it, and low and behold, the material disappeared!!   Or so it seemed.  

So, yea, back on ebay.

I've seen white at a race. I was mighty impressed at the confidence of the wearer. He wore it very well. I may or may not have taken a closer look to see if anything was "visible". Actually was pretty decent!

Holy cow, Yvonne is fit!

Is that a photo of IM Cozumel? I thought you couldn't have race wheels because of the wind?

It takes a lot of confidence to wear white!  My red 2xu pushes the limit for me, not much better than white.

Yeah, I saw that 2XU suit in the clearance rack at my tri store, I did not buy it.  I forgot about the wet t shirt contest effects, but I was afraid of it getting dirty and turn an icky yellow.

LOL at the video XD

i would not like to see a pretty woman wearing a white suit like that at one of my races.  i don't want to get distracted!

same reason i don't like seeing pretty women at the gym when i'm there to work out.

My team's new cycling kit is all white (<---- see new avatar).  Let's just say I had to get over my shyness quite quickly.  I was told there was a "see thru" issue with the tri kits, and haven't received them yet.  It's going to be very interesting when they come in!

i've got the white desoto forza tri jersey and its mostly see-through. if you stare, you can see my nipples and belly button. but i never thought twice about it.

we're all out there in skin-tight clothes, and people routinely show it all off in the ironman change tents. so what's the big deal if the kit fits well and looks good?

trust me when someone is behind you and all they can see is your butt crack through your suit your kit doesn't "look good"

My concern is that I'm pretty sure my kit will not look good on me in a semi-translucent form XD
