Thin Strap Swimsuits for Summer

Thin Strap Swimsuits

If you are looking for a great summer swimsuit, you can find what you need in thin strap swimsuits.

When you are swimming in the summer months, whether competitively, for practice or for leisure, having a swimsuit that is perfect for the warmer weather can work to your advantage. When you are looking for a suit that is comfortable despite the summer heat, you want one that has thinner straps to keep you cooler while you experience the pool. However, you must also keep in mind that you will need extra skin protection as well when wearing one of these suits.

Speedo Thin Strap Suit

Speedo is one of the most well-known names in the world of swimming. When it comes to thin strap swimsuits, you have two options in the Speedo brand: the Solid Flyback and the Rapid Spliced Energy Back. The Flyback offers crossed thin straps that give you freedom of movement and less rubbing as you swim through the water, along with less drag and reduced chaffing. This suit is available in red and black. The Rapid Spliced Energy offers a similar style with maximum support and freedom of movement. The material from which this suit is made is resistant to chlorine, sweat and stretching, making it a great option. The suit is available in black with a range of trim colors, as well as maroon with black trim.

Nike Thin Strap Suit

If you prefer Nike suits, you will find two options for thin strapped suits. The Labyrinth Classic Lingerie Tank suit is a fun addition to your collection with its labyrinth design, available in a range of colors, including grape ice, green, team orange and varsity royal. If you don’t want a suit that has such a busy print, the Poly Solid Cut-Out Tank is a great alternative in the Nike suits. Available in six different colors, you can find one that fits your style.

TYR Thin Strap Suits

Fans of TYR will enjoy the creative Sand Castles Diamondback suit. The design of this suit provides less coverage with more support so you can feel comfortable in it. The suit is chlorine proof, as well as sun resistant, color fast and anti-stretch, so it will last you much longer than other types of suits. It is available in several colors, including blue, blue/green, navy/red, green and red.

Buying your summer swimsuit with thin straps will provide you with the comfort and support you desire in a range of suit styles. Whether you prefer Speedo, Nike or TYR, you are sure to find the cut, style, colors and patterns that will best fit your desires.

Choosing High School Swim Team Suits

7 02 2012

Choosing high school swim team suits revolve around what the coach and

Choosing High School Swim Team Suits

school district or region require. Just as there are requirements for professional swimmers, many school districts and regions have their own list of requirements for high school swim team suits. These requirements are typically outlined for parents and students at the beginning of the school year and sometimes prior to a student joining the team.

1. Choose quality swim suits. Quality swim suits will stand the test of numerous swim practices. Many high school swim team students spend hours a day in the pool. Chlorine eats through cheap fabrics, which will wear down and thin out over the course of a few months. You don’t want to have to go back and buy more practice suits, so choose high quality swim suits for both practice and competitive suits.

2. Buy the best you can afford. Most high schools do not require any particular suit for practice. Shop smart and compare prices when buying practice suits for a student. Buy the best quality you can afford so the suit lasts through many practices. The average high school swim team student will wear out 1-2 swim suits a year, so be prepared to invest in 3-4 suits (at least) for the school year.

3. Experiment with prints and colors. Some swimmers start out thinking solids or school colors are best. You will be wearing these suits numerous times per week. A solid navy blue suit can get boring fast. Instead opt for some of the interesting prints and patterns done by major brands like Speedo and Dolfin.

4. Know that you double up. Most swimmers wear at leasttwo suits layered during practice. This is to create a drag for the swimmer, allowing him or her to feel lighter when they eventually wear one suit during competition. Because of this you will need at least four suits to practice in, but you may need more if you are swimming both morning and night every day of the week.

Taking these things into account when choosing high school swim team suits will help you make the best choice. A few suits is needed and colors and prints can be fun to wear when you’re reaching for suits so often. Remember to abide by any high school or regional regulations for competitive swim suits. These regulations usually do not effect your practice gear, but you may want to abide by them so a swimmer has the same feel during practice as when competing.

Fun Summer Swim Suits

13 05 2010

There are lots of new swimsuits out for the summer. One of my favorites is the new TYR Shockwave Durafast swimsuit. This fun new print has a wavy water looking pattern and is available in several different styles, including a female 2 piece, and male jammer swimsuit. The TYR Shockwave 2 piece swimsuit has TYR’s new ringback design. The ring on the back of the suit top allow the straps to stay put and minimize the need for additional fabric. Thus you get a fun swimsuit and minimal tan lines!

TYR Shockwave Swimsuits

Many swim teams will also like the TYR Shockwave since they have great team colors and matching female and male styles. The male TYR Shockwave jammer features a solid body with the spliced Shockwave pattern going down the leg. TYR’s legendary Durafast 100% polyester swimsuit fabric is another reason not to pass up this fun swimsuit. The 100% polyester swimsuits will last as much as 10 times longer than the traditional Lycra based swimwear.

Blue Seventy Avaliable Soon

20 02 2009

The most popular swimsuit of the short course championship season is almost completely sold out. The new Blue Seventy Nero swimsuit has been sold at a phenomenal rate this month and only a few odd sizes remain on the shelves of a few swim shops. The performance of the Blue Seventy Nero Swimskin racing suit has helped propel it to the top right along side of the Speedo LZR Racer and the TYR Tracer Rise. The Speedo LZR Racer has been selling out and delivery is taking longer for Speedo USA since there is only one factory supplying the whole world with the LZR. The lower price of the Nero Swimskin and delivery problems with Speedo have certainly helped Blue Seventy sell more suits this season. Blue Seventy is expecting to start shipping more Nero swimsuits at the end of the month so swim shops like D&J Sports will have BlueSeventy suits in stock during the first week of March. Just in time for the last couple rounds of championship swim meets.

However TYR has a new swimsuit called the Nero and this may be the only time you can mix electricity with water. Especially when your team is wearing the latest addition to the TYR family.
