Hello I am new to the forums and new to swimming with a club. The problem I am having is finding a suit for someone of my size (6'5" 325). I was wondering if there was anyone else out there who has had any luck finding suits for big guys.

Thanks for your help.

That IS big, and I thought I was big (6'1, 245 lb)! No offense, but I don't think I've heard of a Speedo suit, training or otherwise, big enough to fit you. I wear a 38 and its still a bit tight on my upper thighs (they are big from Rugby). My suggestion would be to maybe call or email Speedo or TYR and see if they can do custom suits?

Best of luck!

I don't know if I have the right of comment here (6"2,205-210 depending on what I ate yesterday) but I prefer jammers. I use Dolfin brand which I find very long lasting. Size 36 for me.

If you can find a 40 or 42 size brief or jammer, try that out. Or, just wear swim trunks until you can get your weight down.

You can sew the pockets closed.
The nylon shorts are perfectly fine.
Don't let the suit stop you from getting in!

When I was 335 I used to buy a speedo lycra size 42. They are very stretchy.
