Suit sizing instructions for Team Suits

FITTING SWIMWEAR – How your swimsuit should feel in opposition to fashion swimwear, in which appearance and style take a higher priority, fit and comfort level should be two of the most important factors.  For swimmers that are skeptical about the benefits of tight-fitting swimwear, we offer the following encouragement: The suit you are trying on is as tight as it’s ever going to be and will loosen over time. The feel of the suit will change once you are in the water. Bag = Drag! Any bag or wrinkles will cause unwanted drag during your race or workout. Swimsuits are more than a means to cover your skin. Like running shoes, competitive swimwear is a piece of sports equipment. And like shoes that are too large, wearing an over-sized swimsuit will cause discomfort and hinder athletic performance.

 

FIT TEST

A common fit test is to lift the straps upwards off the shoulders. You should be able to lift them about one inch or less for a competition suit. When in doubt, move around in your suit to test out the fit. Lift your arms, legs, and shoulders until you’re certain everything stays in place.

 

JAMMERS

Jammers should be sufficiently snug at both waist and knee, to make getting 2 fingers under the fabric somewhat challenging. Waist fit rules! Don’t worry about the leg cuff height, as this will vary for different body types. Remember, your waist measurement equates to the suit size, so a 32″ waist should order a size 32 suit.

 

SUIT CARE FOR ALL SWIMSUITS

Suit care is very important, especially with Nylon, Lycra, and Spandex blends. Here are some helpful tips on how to care for your swimsuit: It is advisable to take a shower before entering the pool. This allows fresh water to absorb into the suit first, helping to keep it chlorine free. After swimming, rinse the suit thoroughly with fresh water. Leaving chlorinated water on a suit allows the chemicals to eat away at the fabric. Swimsuits should NEVER be put in the washing machine or dryer.
