How Women’s Competitive Swimwear Should Fit

Competitive Swimwear

The right fit in competitive swimwear is critical to your overall performance.

When you are on a swim team or swim competitively, you have to worry about more than your swimming abilities. The fit of your competitive swimwear plays a large role in how well you swim. You need to ensure your swimsuit is one that does not restrict your movement but also allows for the least amount of resistance from the water. A swimsuit that is too tight will make you uncomfortable and restrict your movements, while a suit that is too loose will slow you down in the water. Your competitive swimwear should have more coverage than the standard swimsuit you’d wear to the beach to allow for fluid movement in the water. Taking the time to find the proper fitting swimsuit will allow you to show off your best swimming abilities.


You want your competitive swimwear to fit like a glove. It should be tight, but not so tight you cannot breathe or perform your motions easily. There should not be any loose areas that sag or pucker or any type of pulling on the seams. When you try the swimsuit on, stretch like you would in the water to ensure there is no pulling in the openings at the neck or legs. You want your competitive swimwear to be comfortably tight without cutting off your circulation and making it difficult to breathe.

Leg Openings

The leg openings should fit comfortably around your legs. They should not be too tight so they restrict your leg movements or dig into your legs, causing you discomfort while you swim. The leg openings should also not be too loose so water can get up into the openings because this will slow you down.


The straps should stay in the same position during all swim strokes. When you try the swimsuit on, move your arms in various swimming motions; the straps should stay in the same position, no matter how you move your arms. You should ensure the straps are not too loose because not only would they become a distraction, they will slow down your swimming times.


The competitive swimwear you choose should have ample coverage in the chest area. You don’t want it to completely flatten your chest, but you need proper support in that area to allow for fluid movement. Look for swimsuits with adjustable straps to ensure the perfect fit in the chest area.

Warm-Up Suits

The right warm-up suit can bring your team together.

You can’t just jump in the water and start swimming, assuming you will do well. You need to get your body warmed up and ready to go. Many swimmers do this by stretching and performing other exercises before practice or a race. After you warm up, though, you need to find a way to keep your muscles warm until it is your turn to enter the pool. Choosing a swim warm-up suit is the perfect way to keep your muscles warm.

Just because the Speedo Boom Force warm-up suits are the newest on the market doesn’t mean it is your only option. There are a wide variety of other warm-up suits for men, women and youth from the other big names in swim gear. Speedo makes additional warm-up suit options, providing swimmers with even more choices for colors and designs.

Any way you can provide your team with that feeling of unity will only make you stronger.

The Importance of Choosing Competitive Swimwear

Competitive swimwear offers additional benefits for swimmers over traditional swimwear.

If you are involved in competitive swimming, you understand you can’t just pick up any swimwear at your local store and expect to do well in the water. While the swimwear that is available at your local department store or other retailer is functional, looks great and does the job when you are swimming recreationally, they aren’t designed with racing in mind. This means you need to choose your competitive swimwear from an experienced retailer.


One of the biggest concerns with competitive swimwear is how it fits your body. When you will be using the suit for racing, you want a suit that will hug your features and won’t increase the drag of the water on your body. The sleek fit of the perfect competitive swimsuit will increase your ability to cut through the water smoothly with the least amount of resistance possible to enhance your natural performance.


While most competitive swimmers are incredibly fit, there is still a need for compression for certain areas of your body. This is one area where the typical swimsuit available from your local retailer won’t do the job necessary. This is why it is so important to look for competitive swimwear that is designed with this compression in mind to provide you with the enhanced performance you need to do well in the water.

Less Restrictive Materials

Suits that are created with competition in mind will be made from lighter materials that restrict movement less than the swimwear you will find in your local stores. Swimmers want to reduce their weight as much as possible in the water and require the ability to move freely so they can perform the movements necessary to propel themselves through the water quickly and efficiently. If your movement is restricted or your suit causes friction on your body, you won’t be able to swim as well, creating a negative impact on your swimming.

Getting involved in competitive swimming means you need to invest in quality competitive swimwear to be a contender in all your races. These swimsuits offer additional benefits to competitive swimmers over those you can find in your average store. These competitive swimsuits will be made from lightweight materials that don’t restrict your movements in any way. They also fit better than your average suit and provide you with the compression you need to become more aerodynamic in the water, improving your speed naturally.

Proper Care for Your Sport Swim Wear

Competitive Swimwear Care

Taking proper care of your competitive swim suit is important.

Chlorine and the various other chemicals in the pool can be harmful to your sport swim wear. If you do not take proper care of your suit, you could shorten its life significantly. If you are a competitive swimmer, you probably go to great lengths to find the perfect suit that will allow you to swim fast and perform well. The material used to construct these suits is fragile. Manufacturers use these specially woven fabrics to increase speed by decreasing drag and increasing compression. The fragile material requires special care to lengthen the life of your competitive swim suit.

Rinse Your Swim Suit

This might seem like a waste of time, but the simple act of rinsing your swim suit right after getting out of the pool can add more use to your suit. This will remove the chlorine from your suit right away rather than sitting on the suit, causing damage while it waits to be laundered.

Washing the Chlorine Out

While rinsing is helpful, it does not get rid of all the chlorine. You should carefully wash your competitive swim suit as soon as possible. Washing it by hand is best because it allows for a gentle wash to preserve the fragile fabric of your suit. Simply add a few drops of mild laundry detergent to a sink full of water, turn your suit inside out and gently wash it. All it takes is a few gentle glides back and forth in the water to thoroughly wash it. Never use abrasive or harsh cleaners and avoid bleach at all costs.

Drying Your Suit

You will want to get rid of the excess water on your suit, but you must do this carefully. Excessive wringing can cause more damage to your suit than putting it through the washing machine. Simply give your suit a few gentle squeezes to get the excess water out. Once the excess water is out, lay your swim wear flat on a towel to allow it to dry. Never use the dryer because it will cause fading and shrinking.

If you follow these simple steps with your competitive swim suit, you will not only prolong the length of time you can use it, but you will also keep the specific features of each suit intact. This will allow you to increase your performance when you wear your sport swim wear.

If you have ever wondered how dolphins swim so fast and graceful, the secret is in their skin. It is not porous like human skin. This is what causes humans to naturally slow down in the water.
