At this point in time no suits should be listed as banned by U.S. Masters Swimming for pool or open water swimming
While FINA has listed the 202 approved swimsuits, FINA has NOT listed the 10 suits that have been “rejected for not passing the tests of buoyancy and/or thickness” or made a ruling on the “136 swimsuits to be modified in accordance with “Dubai Charter”." Until FINA provides the definitive list of banned swimsuits and specific actions on the 136, we should not report any suit as banned in a USMS sanctioned event.
If you hear anything from FINA in contradiction to this statement, please inform me as soon as possible. The list of FINA approved suits can be found at: [Link]

Have you noticed that out of all the swimming governing bodies in the US, the USMS seems to be the only one run by rational adults?
