What should a woman wear for a triathlon beginner?

What should I wear for a triathlon?
In a triathlon you want to wear what is called a triathlon suit or a triathlon kit (a top/bottom combo) designed to be worn in the swim, the bike, and finally the run. In other words, you do not take it off! With the exception of the wetsuit (if needed), you need not put on any other piece of clothing.

- A quick drying suit is very important.
- Make sure your suit offers good UV protection.

What shoes do triathletes wear?

Do girls wear anything under a wetsuit?
