Female competitive swimmers planning to compete in big-league world championship events tend to gravitate towards swimsuits that provide just the right thickness, buoyancy and permeability.

For the regular water fitness enthusiasts, there’s a plethora of nice options that are not only figure-flattering but also stand up better to the deteriorating effects of chlorinated water than most fashion swimwear selections. Women’s fitness swimwear has undergone enhancements in fiber engineering, resulting to swimsuit options that are durable and chlorine-resistant yet comfortable & stylish.

In choosing women’s water fitness swimwear, fit, construction and fabrication are important considerations.

To determine the right size in advance to save time when you hie off to the shopping center and try on one piece after another in the dressing room (or order from an online catalog), get an accurate body measurement. Get a tape measure and get your waist, bust and torso measurements. Your goal is to get a snug-fitting swimsuit that will stay in place even when your water sports activity or aquatic workout gets vigorous.

In terms of construction, most swimsuit lines provide ample bust support. Proper bust support is vital for activities like water aerobics. Common types of bust support are shelf bras offering light coverage and soft cup bras that provide extra support. Certain swimsuit styles, specifically those for athletic competition have no bust support, thereby diminishing drag and improving glide.

There are different styles that may be chosen to suit the female body type. A maillot is a one-piece swimsuit ideal for conservative women or those who want to cover up love handles or flab. A triangular top bikini is suited for curvy gals; a halter top bikini is suited for the well-endowed, or even small-busted women requiring some lift.

Indeed, it can be real fun to buy a new swimsuit. If you choose one which fits right and is suited to your water fitness activities, and if you properly care for it, it can last years and be well worth the investment.
