View Full Version : Women's Swimsuits

Can someone give me a rule of thumb of what type of suit a woman should wear for the following situations:

1. Training
2. Regular season meet
3. Final meet like state/zone champs or nationals
4. Regular open water event for 1-2 miles

I have 3 types of suits - the fully lined, sort of heavy practice type suits, lesser lined Speedo/TYR "racing" suits and a fast skin. At present I swim for my own personal achievements and goals, I am not the slowest at meets, but I'm definitely in the bottom half.

Thank you for your input.

I wear what I feel like & what I have in my bag.

I've been known to wear training suits the criss-cross & corset backs as well as lycra suits.

I haven't gotten into wearing the bodysuits -- something about the feel of the water . . . I just like to feel the water. AND, I'm not setting World Records, so a few seconds here and there does not really matter to me.

For training I wear a polyester suit either Tyr or Speedo Endurance.

For meets it depends if I am going for a goal time or doing a National meet I will wear my Aqua Shift short john, if I am just swimming a meet to have fun I will wear my Aqua Sift regular suit or a Fusion 2 regular suit.
