Choosing the right swimwear for your figure is not just about looking cool in the pool. It can offer increased body comfort and even help improve competitive performance.

Choosing the right swimwear is essential, and it is not just a matter function over form. We all want to look good in the pool as we work towards a trim new figure.

The good news is that dress codes in many pools have been relaxed to allow for additional modesty. 

Nowadays you can wear almost anything you want (it’s always worth checking with your pool first though) and it’s important you feel comfortable.

The more you swim the more you will tone up as swimming is one of the best all round sports to get you in shape.  And just because you think everyone is looking at you they’re not - they are just worrying about what they look like!
