"I blame you, James!" - knelson
I'm also still in the hunt for a suit for Nationals. I've done everything else as far as signing up, hotel, plane, etc. Just need to get the suit. I may just stick with a new Yingfa as they are pretty good on the first couple runs as well like Jimby said above. Unless there's another cheap bang for the buck that's better.
Just thought I'd revive... everyone figure out their Nationals suits?
I allways suggest one size larger for training.

I've been wearing the speedo endurance tarzan-cut suits for practice b/c I don't like jammers most of the time; but I do like to put on the jammers for meets b/c of the extra compression on the legs, reducing drag.
Do jammers in OW make us look more like shark bait?
Where did you buy your Yingfa at?
I ordered my new #9205 around 11, and it was shipped by 2. Sale this week.
How do they size? I wear a 36 in speedo endurance and iSport. But I think in the next 4 weeks I will have lost some fat as the 36's are looser than they were 2 weeks ago.
They are small -- but pretty true to the sizing chart. If you have big legs, you might want to get the bigger one, because although the waists match up with Speedo, both of my suits have skinnier legs than any Speedo I've ever worn. They are tough to get on, but comfortable once I squeeze in.
I wear a 32 or 34 Endurance and I get the XL (30-32).
I like the fact I'm XXL/XXXL... nothing like making one want to lose weight!
I have no idea why I even read this thread, but may I add my ? I bought my ladies Yingfa here: http://www.swimdownhill.com
George provides excellent service and several other Forumites have been happy with him, as well.
sok454: I feel your pain . I am 5'71/2" and weigh 123 pounds, however, I have to wear a XXXL . Yingfa is a Chinese company, and, as you probably know, the Chinese are tiny. I don't have a huge , but the XXL didn't exactly cover it . So, George exchanged it for a XXXL and covered shipping.

Good to know that they will run a bit small. And my asst. is wondering why I have such a grin on my face... you emoticons are awesome.
Thanks! I appreciate the input. I love the "modesty" panel!
