anyone interested in this NEW (never worn tags still on) race suit . Its a women's size 25 ( which I assumed would be a women's size 4 ) but honestly fits 2x smaller and would reasonably fit a youth age 10 -12 years old . I've added the size chart ( that is out to lunch ) for reference. Asking $130
