Which swimsuit style is right for you?
It depends on your comfort preferences and need for flexibility. Men often prefer Kneelength Jammers, as less material causes less drag. Women may prefer Kneeskin styles to gain the benefit of muscle compression in their legs. A closed-back vs. open-back style is also a matter of comfort and preference. Closed-back styles may eliminate more drag than open. Speedo’s Comfort Straps are wider with softer material and may help eliminate discomfort on the shoulders due to the suits’ tightness.
How do you choose the correct swimsuit size?
The best way to find your correct swimsuit size is by measuring your bust, hips, high and other dimensions with a measuring tape. These measurements can be compared to the Speedo size chart. Remember, when you are trying to reduce drag in the pool, tighter swimsuits are best. It may feel uncomfortable at first, but after entering the water, your Speedo’s material will stretch slightly. The tight fit is intentional in order to decrease drag and increase muscle compression.
