Swimming is not commonly thought of as a year-round activity, except for competitive swimmers and lifeguards. All-around sports supplier Pedigree Ski Shop recommends comfortable, performance-level for lifeguards and competitors. These one-piece suits have to deliver more than just bright colors and stylish designs. Swimsuits worn for competition have to streamline the body while in the water, and at the same time should be comfortable to wear during hours of practice.
Advantages of a one-piece swimsuit
Working out in the pool is less about making a fashion statement. Women tend to wear one-piece suits in swimming pools as part of their workout or practice. In contrast, more women wear two-piece bikinis outdoors. It is not a coincidence that the choice of colors is more varied for swimwear worn outdoors.
For serious swimmers, it is performance first when swimming indoors. They work tirelessly, and their swimwear has to be comfortable for extended wear in the water.
Fashion and style for work
There are brands famous for their design, and there are those that are known for their performance. Speedo is well-known as a performance swimwear, both for men and women. On the other hand, Tyr Sports swimwear is designed for lifeguards. Externally, the cut and form look the same, but their use and performance are different.
Lifeguard swimsuits are built sturdier and designed to fit comfortably, whereas competition swimwear is a tighter fit, allowing for a more streamlined presence in the water. Different materials like neoprene are also used in different ways between brands. This hugs the body more tightly which can be flattering for the women.
There are plenty of styles for one-piece suits. Some suits have zippers up front, or in the back, while others are backless or are the razorback. Although the materials are a prime consideration, the quality of the build depends on what the woman is going to use it for.
