Shopping Guide for Selecting the Right Swimwear

Shopping Guide for Selecting the Right Swimwear

Warm weather, basking in the sun and relaxing on scenic beaches are among the reasons people have for buying swimsuits. Other reasons include aquatic fitness and swimming competitions. People have different bodies and a suit that looks fantastic on one person may not be flattering on someone else. Fortunately, there are several types of suits that shoppers can choose from.

Selecting the right swimsuit will have a positive effect on your performance and ensures that you always look your best. Swimsuits have evolved over the years and feature designs that enhance the shape of the body as well as overall performance during competitions.

Choosing Swimwear

In order for you to be able to choose appropriate swimwear, you need to determine its purpose. Swimsuits are typically used for two main functions that include athletic pursuits or competitions and fun or leisure.

Before you purchase a suit, it is also important to decide the type that will be most comfortable by figuring out the style and size according to the purpose of the suit. Considering the wide variety of swimsuits that are available, these are pertinent decisions.


Knowing the size of the swimwear Australia you want to get is essential for identifying a suit that is both visually appealing and comfortable. You can use a measuring tape to find the right size. Make sure that the tape is not tight while you take the measurements. The tape should be straight to achieve a snug fit when measuring.

Women usually need to measure the waistline, bust area and torso. For men the key measurement is the waistline. Most children will comfortably fit into swimwear sizes that correspond to the current size of their clothing.

Swimsuits for Athletics

Athletic swimwear focuses on the fabric rather than fashion. Swimwear for athletes should consist of high quality materials to ensure that the suit is durable and resistant to the effects of chlorine. Athletic swimwear should ideally be snug enough to create a weightless effect for the swimmer and improve performance.


Spandex and Speedo are popular choices for men because they provide support and sufficient coverage. The suits are designed to mold or conform to the body and facilitate smoother movements as a person swims through the water.


  • Choosing women’s suits for competitions and athletics involves picking the right fabric, style and sizing.
  • The suit will usually be more compressive than a typical fashion swimsuit to enhance speed and aid optimum performance. A snug fit across the area of the bust is crucial for support.
  • There are different styles of women’s swimsuits and emphasis is placed on how comfortable you feel and look. Most swimsuits contain spandex for strength and durability.

Swimsuits for Leisure

A major factor when selecting swimsuits for leisure is style. Individuals have different shapes and preferences regarding the type of look they want. Men’s choices range from swimming trunks to Speedo with varying extents of coverage. Women often need to determine their body shape when shopping for a suit. Whether you are an hourglass, apple, inverted triangle or rectangle shape, there is a swimsuit for every size and shape.
