Spring is here and summer is right around the corner. Now is the time to order your lifeguard swimsuit for your summer lifeguard job. There are a lot of swimsuits to choose from and we have some tips to help you find the perfect lifeguard swim suit.
Since you will be wearing your swimsuit everyday this summer you will want something that is comfortable and that will last you all summer. We know that lifeguards are not the top earners so no need to buy more swimsuits than what you actually need. Our suggestion is to look for a polyester swimsuit. The polyester swimsuits are designed to last 3-10 times longer than the traditional lycra lifeguard swimsuits. Look for 100% polyester swimsuits or a blend of polyester and PBT – a polyester blend material designed to stretch and perform like the lycra swimsuits do.
The next tip that we suggest when shopping for a lifeguard swimsuit is to look for a straps that will be comfortable. There are two basic strap designs – the wide strap and the thin strap. The wide strap swimsuits are typically more comfortable since the straps do not dig into your shoulders and they also provide you with more support. However many people prefer the thin strap swimsuits and they say the straps can be just as comfortable to wear. Plus you get the added benefit of smaller tan lines and HELLO girls we all know that you are only lifeguarding to get the great tan.
