Depending on how long the bike segment is, you may have success with Tyr tri briefs (I like their padding and fit, though after 30 miles the briefs start to chafe...no prob with running though), and a similar brand tri tank. Then you can pull on lighter bike shorts over, and switch out for running shorts, to preserve others' eyes during each segment, but still have that quick-drying padded base layer.
I have a one-piece Zoot suit, under which I still wear that Tyr bra for added support/streamlining. It's high-necked, which is important for the swim. I got a last-season model on team estrogen or something. Sports basement is the best once you know what sizing you need.
Trying on tri stuff is important, and it's hard to do in certain areas. Stupid stores.
