Might as well lean into it and be a fast dork. The pros aren't wearing skin suits to show off their spaghetti arms and ridiculous quads, they wear them because the enemy is wind and tight clothes are armor.
Top level pros get paid a fair amount of money to wear stuff so people will say that pros wear stuff to make them faster.
