How to Choose a Women’s Tech Suit

Enjoy comfort with the Speedo LZR Elite 2.
The Speedo LZR Elite 2 offers comfort and other features.

If you watched the Olympics, you likely saw Missy Franklin performing in her patriotic Speedo LZR Elite 2. This technical swimming suit offers female swimmers all the advantages in the water so they can streamline their bodies and increase the impact of every stroke they make. When it comes to choosing the perfect tech suit, there are a few guidelines you should use to help ensure you are getting a suit that will serve you well during training, as well as during races.

Comfort Is Key

Many swimmers forget about the comfort factor when they’re choosing tech suits for their swimming. However, if you aren’t comfortable wearing your suit for long periods of time for training or during meets, you aren’t going to be as effective in the water. Therefore, you need to make sure the suit you are wearing offers comfort features as well. With the Speedo LZR Elite 2, you will find it offers compression in all the right places, as well as a comfortable fit that lasts.

Ease of Use

Competitive swimwear is meant to fit tightly. While this is almost guaranteed to mean it might take a little effort to get it on and off, you don’t want to spend hours and waste all of your energy fighting to get your suit on before and after training or meets. Always try on your tech suits before you buy so you can feel comfortable with the amount of effort it takes to put it on and remove it.


Let’s face it, competitive swimwear, especially technical suits, are expensive. While it’s important to buy one that fits within your budget, there’s no such thing as a cheap suit that lasts. You will spend a lot of time in the pool, whether for training or for competitions. This is why it’s important to choose an option that will provide the best fit possible, as well as one that will last as long as possible. Read reviews before you make any final decisions.

Choosing a technical suit for women may not seem like a difficult task, especially since many of them look the same. However, there are different features available between the various brands, as well as the slight variances in styles. It’s important to take your time and look closely at each option in person if possible to ensure you get the perfect suit to best fit your needs, as well as your budget.

The Olympics bring together athletes from around the world for some friendly competition. This year, one of Texas’s own is competing and not for the first time. This is Cammile Adams’ second run for the Olympic gold. She had previously been part of the Olympic team that competed in the 200 meter butterfly where she finished fifth in the 2012 London Olympic Games. She has returned to Rio with Team USA to once again swim the 200 meter butterfly. However, she once again fell short of medal contention, improving on her London performance and placing fourth in the final.

Texas Swimming Isn’t Her Only Focus

At 24 years old, Cammile Adams has a lot on her plate this year. In addition to being part of Team USA for the second time, Adams is preparing to finish the remaining credits she needs to earn her degree from Texas A&M University. In addition to her impending degree, she will be getting married in two months. This means she’s been training, studying and planning the most important day of her life, all at the same time, making her fourth place run even more amazing.

The MP Collection of Goggles Offer Innovation, Variety and Style

Michael Phelps low-profile goggles can help you swim.
Try the Michael Phelps low-profile goggles.

Michael Phelps is the most decorated Olympians, as well as one of the most well known competitive swimmers. As such, he has created his own collection of goggles to give other swimmers the same advantages he has had in the water. Whether individuals are looking for clear, smoked or mirrored lenses, he has created a variety of Aquasphere goggles even Phelps would be proud to wear in the pool as he swims his gold-medal winning races.

Low-Profile Racing Goggles

The Aquasphere K180 swimming goggles by Michael Phelps are low-profile racing goggles that are designed to protect the eyes and allow for clear visibility in the water without causing excess drag as the swimmer moves through the water. Because Phelps has extensive experience in the competitive world of swimming, he knows what it takes to get the right traction in the water without negatively affecting drag, which can add precious milliseconds to your times. When races are won or lost by fractions of a second, every minute detail counts.

A Variety of Options

When you choose the Aquasphere competitive swimming goggles designed by Michael Phelps, you will find there are a variety of options to help you choose the one that best fits your swimming needs. For instance, if you spend most of your time swimming outdoors, the titanium mirror lenses can be your best choice. These lenses reflect away the light so you can see more clearly and guard against the glare off the pool water. For those who spend more of their time swimming indoors, the clear or smoky lenses can be the ideal solution.

Finding the right swimming goggles is important if you want to do your best in the water. While many goggles look similar, there are differences. For instance, the Michael Phelps designed Aquasphere goggles feature a low-profile design that is meant to reduce drag in the water and help swimmers see clearly without the bulk of your average goggles. With the option of clear, smokey or mirrored lenses, every swimmer will be able to find the exact style that will best suit their needs and their personal preferences.

Nike’s New Collection Is Designed to Perform

Take advantage of Nike Performance Poly.
Nike Performance Poly has plenty to offer.

Most casual swimmers look at a swimsuit and believe besides the color, pattern and cut of the suit, one swimsuit is the same as the next. Swimsuit material is essentially the same on every suit, right? If you’re a serious competitive swimmer focused on results, you know how wrong that assumption is. You know milliseconds can mean the difference between victory and defeat. That’s a fact Nike understands completely and the reason so many professional athletes insist on Nike for their training and competition gear. Nike’s performance materials are not run-of-the-mill swimsuit materials!

Nike Performance Poly

Available in your favorite team colors, as well as eye-catching designs, performance poly is one of the materials featured in Nike’s new collection of competition swimwear. Not only will your training and competition swimsuits look sharp, they will give you a competitive edge and shave valuable time off your results. Nike Performance poly is comfortable and lightweight, durable, can stand up to long sessions in a chlorinated pool and retain color-fastness and resists stretching. This is an Olympic year, and competitive swimming is in the spotlight. If the Olympics have inspired you to “kick up” your game, make sure you’ve got a swimsuit that is up to the challenge.

Nike Performance Poly Blend

The other material you will see in Nike’s new competition line is a performance poly blend. This material delivers outstanding performance, fit and support. Unlike the Performance Poly, which is 100 percent polyester, Nike’s performance poly blend suits are 82 percent polyester and 18 percent Spandex. The fabric has just a little more give and stretch than the 100 percent Poly suits. Whether you are looking for a lingerie tank suit, a retro-pattern cutout suit, a prism-pattern or signature Nike Swoosh brief or any other sporty pattern, you’ll love the options in the Performance Poly Blend fabric.

Whether you need a jammer, a brief, a fastback one-piece tank or any of Nike’s training swimsuits, you’ll find an excellent assortment of options crafted with these winning materials. Where you buy your competitive swimwear is almost as important as the swimwear itself! Make sure to shop with a provider that carries only authentic Nike suits and offers outstanding customer service support should you need it.
