The Nike AeroSwift Singlet is one of those products where we’ve heard sizing is an issue. We created this post to clear up the confusion.
Why It’s So Popular
The AeroSwift Singlet is an item that has risen to prominence by being consistently spotted on Eliud Kipchoge and other elite Nike athletes as they race on the biggest stages and attempt to break world records. It’s incredibly light and breathable and has gained a reputation as the best singlet available.
In Kipchoge’s case, he was wearing an AeroSwift Singlet and the Nike Air Zoom Alphafly Next% when he broke the storied two hour marathon barrier. When an athlete breaks an iconic record, how he trains, how he eats, and everything he’s wearing will be analyzed and adopted by other professional athletes who aspire to his heights.
Then, the product and training methods trickle down to athletes at all levels of the sport. Such is the case with the AeroSwift Singlet and the Nike Alphafly Next%. Nike can’t even keep the Alphafly Next% in stock because of the heavy demand 😭.
Luckily, the AeroSwift Singlet is in stock at Nike.com in multiple colors, sizes, and styles. But there’s one problem with ordering it online, the Nike AeroSwift Singlet sizing is wrong. I’ve heard from a bunch of people who have ordered the Singlet only to have to return it for a different size.
The True Nike AeroSwift Singlet Sizing
The problem? It’s way too short and has a slim fit. You’ll need to go up a size from what you normally wear in Nike running shirts. So if you normally wear a Medium, order a Large. And while I haven’t tried the Women’s version myself (for obvious reasons), I’ve heard the same sizing advice applies. You might even need to go up two sizes if you have really broad weightlifter sized shoulders. And if you’re that big I’d probably recommend you go with a different brand’s singlet.
