You put in a lot of preparation to be ready for that one race day, and we did the same on the Body Paint Tri Top. We made it practically seamless so that it’s fast in the water and on the bike, and you don’t even feel it on the run.
Everything lies perfectly flat and helps reduce chafing because there are almost no seams. Two rear pockets hold gels or energy bars, with flaps to cover the openings to make this top as fast as possible in non-wetsuit swims. The Body Paint warp knit fabric dries quickly, and the fulllength zipper makes entry/exit easier.
Castelli Body Paint Donna Womens Triathlon Top Features:

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous A beautiful tri top that definitely fits like 'body paint'! Super comfortable on, can't even feel that its there in either the swim, bike or run. My only criticism is that with the bottom edge being lazer cut and so thin, it tends to roll itself up and doesn't stay flat. The photo gives the impression it sits flat over the top of your hips but in reality it creeps up. Not too big an issue given the matching shorts come up to your waist (thus you don't get any skin peeking out the middle, but it was a bit annoying as the pockets then stick out the back and it becomes a lot less flattering. If you can deal with that though, its a great top!
