See Strappado’s review of the Realize swimsuit he’s just received! I think I will be the next. And my birthday is not that far away…

Neither Speedo s2000 nor Mizuno shiny closed-back swimsuits are produced anymore. These suits are very special and very expensive, they were created for specific purposes (very tight and slippery when wet to prevent grabbing and with low drag for speed), they were not available in usual sport shops and there will be no mass customers from outside of sport clubs. Since the sport industry never cared about us fetishists, the models were discontinued and now can be found only on eBay with ridiculously high price tags (see, for example, Mizuno and Speedo s2000 Latex wetlook shiny Swimsuits on eBay)
Fortunately, two years ago a Japanese company called Realise began producing similar swimsuits. And not just “blind copies” of the above mentioned suits, but completely redesigned, with lots of options (e.g. full seat, thong, high cut, closed back, bikini back, round neck, collar neck, and combinations), in lots of colours and cheaper. Basically all forms and shapes you have seen in manga and anime.
However only for Japan. No delivery outside. One of the options is to check Realise swimsuits on eBay.
Anyway, see 32 photos below. Pretty impressive, isn’t it?
Another interesting thing is what these swimsuits are made of. There’s no lycra (or latex, as some sources claim) at all. 100% nylon lining and 100% polyurethane coating (this layer is responsible for rubber look and feel). The material feels tighter than usual 80% polyamide/20% lycra/spandex fabric, so the manufacturer suggests to order one size bigger. Recently Speedo came to the market with a similar model. Will make a proper “research” and post about it later.
I absolutely adore these one-piece swimsuits, though I’ve never tried them on. They look gorgeous on photos what was properly noticed by Japanese adult industry ;-) I even had a weird thought to become a Realise dealer 8-O …
