Women’s Swimming Costumes
When it comes to women’s swimming costumes, there are a lot of choices- O-shaped or U-shaped back,
polyester or polyamide- therefore a lot of confusion. But worry not, we are here to help you choose a swimming costume that will up your swimming game.
When you are selecting a women’s swimming costume, there a few basic things that you need to keep in mind:
Level of swimming:
Beginner Level: If you have just started with your swimming classes or can swim by 1-2 strokes and are looking for comfort, then a U-back swimming costume is perfect for you. These swimming costumes are easy to wear from the top.
Intermediate Level: If you have learnt to swim and practice to improve your skills, then womens swim shorts are an ideal costume as it sticks to the body and doesn’t hinder your practice. You can wear it with a racerback top that will support your bust. Ideally, you should buy a sleeveless top that doesn’t cover your shoulder and hence makes it easier for you to perform strokes.
Advanced Level: If you are someone who is looking to participate in competitions, then the ideal swimming costume is one which barely covers your body to ensure ease in glide, better speed, and therefore better overall performance. Buy a V- cut swimming costume that is minimal on the legs and it is sleeveless so you can perform your strokes with ease.
Coverage: The kind of coverage you want basically depends on your comfort level. Decathlon offers swimming costumes that provide more coverage if you are looking for something more decent and are not comfortable wearing V-neck costumes. However, it is important to keep in mind that a swimming costume should not cover your hands and shoulders as it may hinder your strokes.
