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.
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 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
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.
