How to Properly Care for Competitive Swimwear

31 01 2014

Competition Swimsuit

Taking proper care of your competition swimsuit will ensure it lasts a long time.

Swimming competitively on a swimming team can be a great experience for individuals who are interested in participating in this lucrative sport. Swimming is great exercise without being too hard on the body, even if you swim competitively. When you use a swim team suit, you need to take care of it differently than you would your typical swimwear. Most people simply throw their swimsuits in the washing machine and dryer. With your competitive swimwear, though, you must be careful with its care.

For Competition Only

One of the most important things to remember in the care of your competitive swimwear is to restrict your swimsuit to competition and practice wear only. If you begin wearing your swimming team swimsuit for leisure swimming, it will wear out more quickly and you will be faced with the need to replace it more often.

Rinse It Out

Every time you wear your competition swimsuit, you will need to rinse it out carefully after you wear it. This will remove a majority of the chlorine and sweat that may have absorbed into the fibers. Make sure you rinse it as thoroughly as possible and remove as much of the water as possible without wringing out the suit.

Hand Wash

Never place your swim team suit in your washing machine. Some people place theirs in a mesh bag to protect it, but this can still lead to damage. Instead, fill your sink or stationary tub with cool water and a small amount of mild liquid detergent. Swish the swim team suit around in the water a few times to remove the chlorine and other residue. Rinse with clean water and gently squeeze the water from the suit. Never wring it out.

Hang to Dry

Your competition swimsuit should never be exposed to excessive heat, which means you can’t dry it in your clothes dryer either. It is best to dry your swimsuit out naturally by laying it out on a flat surface. Make sure you keep it out of the sun to prevent fading and other sun damage. Do not iron your swimming team swimsuit after drying.

Taking care of your swim team suit is essential to increase its longevity and make sure it looks and fits great every time you put it on. Improper care can lead to fading of colors and the weakening of materials that can have a negative impact on your swimming performance.

Get Suited in Time for the Boys High School Swim Season

27 11 2013
Competitive Swimwear

The right swim team suits is essential to the success of your team.

The high school swim season is typically held during the winter months to allow these young men to enjoy a sport indoors when it is cool outside. This means it is time to think about ordering competitive swimwear for the boy’s high school team. There are plenty of options to meet the needs and styles of all high school teams, giving them competitive swimwear that is effective and fashionable as well.

Jammers

One of the popular options today is the jammers. These swim team suits offer the coverage some young men enjoy and give them the right amount of compression in the right places to give them the ability to swim more effectively. These suits offer more coverage without creating additional drag in the water, which can slow even the best swimmer down. These suits are sometimes preferred by high school teams for the modesty factor.

Briefs

Because briefs are increasing in popularity recently, this can be another great option for your high school swim team suits. These types of suits offer less restriction and give them a sense of style and team unity. These suits are available in a variety of patterns, styles and colors so you can choose the ones your team will enjoy most.

Square Leg

A less popular option, the square leg suits are the perfect combination of the brief and jammer styles. The slightly longer legs give young men the coverage they desire without being as long as the jammer swim team suits. They also offer a higher level of compression than the briefs without being as restrictive as jammers can be. Many young men view these suits as the most comfortable of the types, allowing them to feel as if they have the coverage they want without too much coverage.

Choosing the right competitive swimwear for a boy’s high school team can be a major undertaking. The young men on the team often have preferences about which types of swim team suits they want and the school may have restrictions as well. There are three general types of swimwear from which to choose: briefs, jammers and square leg. No matter which style you choose for your high school team, you will still find a variety of designs and colors so you can find something that really speaks to your entire team.





Swim Briefs Are Back in Style

25 11 2013
Competitive Swimwear

The brief style of competitive swimwear is rising back to the top.

For a period of time, men were moving away from the old brief style of swimwear, even in competitive swimwear, and moving into longer styles, including jammers. On the beach or at the pool, you were more likely to see the jammers or board shorts than you were to see the brief style swimwear. However, if you are hanging out at the pool for a swim practice or meet, you are again more likely to see more of the men sporting briefs.

Less Restrictive

One of the reasons why men prefer the briefs over other types of competitive swimwear is the way they fit. There is less material that comes in contact with the body, reducing the amount of restriction they feel as they swim through the water. Restrictive swimwear can lead to a poor performance, which is why more men are turning to briefs like the Speedo Vortex Brief. Men are able to move their legs and not worry about feeling restricted as they move.

A Variety of Colors

The Speedo Vortex Brief is an attractive brief that creates a fun style for swimmers to wear in the pool. For those who are part of a team, there are many colors from which to choose, including green, blue, red and orange. These great colors will attract attention and help men fit in with the rest of their team.

More than Just Competitive Swimwear

Brief-style swimwear is showing up in more places than swim competitions and training. These short swimsuits are appearing in movies, on beaches and at the casual pool. More people are also searching for terms, such as “Speedo” online, making it evident that interest in these suits is growing again. This means that many men are going to be looking for new swimwear to wear at the pool through the winter and at the beach once the warmer weather hits again.

Swim briefs were introduced years ago and were popular for a period of time. However, over the last couple of decades, their use has declined in favor of board shorts and jammers, even in competitive swimming. Even though trends have moved away from these briefs, the tides are changing again, drawing more attention to the traditional swim briefs again.
