Tech Suit Discounts
Speedo, through Sylvia’s Swimwear, is still offering a 30% discount off their LZR X and LZR Elite tech suits, which are being discontinued. Sylvia's has a reasonable stock of these suits available and they can be ordered online here: 

​If you need a fitting for a tech suit, here is the process to make a fitting appointment at Sylvia's:

  • Call the Sylvia’s Team Sales office at (425) 556-9867 and request a tech suit fitting appointment.
  • If you do not purchase a suit at the time of your fitting, they require a $50 deposit which can be used as store credit at any of their retail locations and never expires.
  • The fitting must take place at their team sales office, which is located at 1813 130th Ave NE, Suite 109, Bellevue, WA 98005. Please remember that tech suit fittings are by appointment only, so it is important to call first.
