How Trigirl Started
Trigirl was initially born out of a frustration to find stylish and flattering triathlon kit that performed at the highest level.
Patrizia Victor, the brains behind Trigirl, was inspired while racing in the London triathlon in 2006. Wearing an inadequate, ill-fitting trisuit, Patrizia knew that she- and other tri girls like her- deserved better… better fabric, better fit, better support, better colours!
With her extensive background as a garment technician in the development and production of fashion and sports clothing, Patrizia knew that she was just the woman for the job.
She applied her knowledge of fit, function (and fabulous!) to create a line of clothing that would not only perform better than any other women’s triathlon clothing on the market, but would also look great. With that, Trigirl was launched in 2007 and we've never looked back.
Combining the world’s most innovative and cutting-edge fabrics and design, Trigirl is the first and only triathlon-specific brand in the UK for women by women…. because only a woman can really understand the need for a proper fitting bra support, multiple cup sizes, a leg gripper which doesn't dig in, a suit in just the ‘right’ colour- or the confidence a flattering fit inspires.
Our exclusive collections are designed specifically with women in mind and have input from female triathletes, runners, designers and testers all the way through the process. Trigirl will make you feel like a million dollars whether you’re doing your first triathlon or competing at the highest standard.
Now, Trigirl is a market leader in triathlon clothing for women. Available all over the world, Trigirl has a reputation of being one of the few genuinely female-orientated triathlon brands.
We know what we want in our triathlon and running kit and we know you demand the same. We’re not prepared to settle for ill-designed kit in dull colours and we don’t think you should either. And thankfully, you don’t have to… because you can wear Trigirl.
Trigirl is a small company and we choose to support other small companies for the sourcing and production of our garments. We have a proud history of working with top-level European suppliers and factories, ensuring close relationships and well-made product.
Our garment factory is a small, family-run business, based in northwestern Portugal. With over 30 years experience in manufacturing sports clothing, they are masters at what they do, investing in the latest machinery and technology to ensure that your trisuit is made right!
We also feel our fabric is the best in the business. After extensive searching for the highest quality technical sports fabrics, we chose 100% Italian-made, from a company that is a leader in fabric development and technical innovation.
This way we know that Trigirl trisuits are made from fabrics that will dry quickly, wear well, and keep their shape and we can offer them to you with confidence and pride. Quite simply, your trisuit will perform.
Because of the close proximity to our factory, we ship everything by truck, which means no air freight, keeping our carbon footprint small.
We hope that you’ll love your Trigirl triathlon clothing even more, knowing that we've taken into account every detail of the sourcing and manufacturing process. Our goal is to create the very best quality triathlon kit specifically for you: the fabulous female triathlete.
