Why are racing suits so much tighter than training suits?

Wait, I'm Wearing a Suit?

Racing suits. Swimming suits that you wear to race should be tighter and thinner than suits you train in. Many companies make “paper” swimming suits.

Paper swimming suits are single layer suits that stretch more than regular suits to allow you to get them on, but feel like you are not wearing much more than your skin.
