Perhaps you need a new swimsuit – check these suggestions out, whether you like the traditional ‘speedo’ variety, or the swim bike pants called ‘jammmers’. The only thing missing is the traditional men’s one piece swim suit, which is great for those guys who don’t have a 6 pack or have scars or burns on their abdomen. I can’t seem to find many men’s one piece swim suits, email me at lycraluva at gmail dot com if you do come across any. Thanks in advance LL.
When it comes to buying a swimming costume there are many factors to consider. What will you be using your new swimsuit for? Will it be used once a day, once a week, or more like once a month? Do you need it for leisure swimming, training/fitness or racing? And then there’s the vast amount of different styles, colours and swimwear materials to choose from, it can all be a little overwhelming. But don’t fear, ProSwimwear is here to help explain the ins and outs of buying swimwear. These guides will help you figure out what sort of swimsuit to purchase for your needs.
So lets start with men’s swimwear. Nowadays men are not constricted to wearing traditional “Speedo” style swim briefs at the pool, there are many different swimwear styles to choose from that apply to a range of different purposes.
Swim Jammers are tightly fitting knee length swim…
The great thing about the 02 Tri Suit is the ability to pretty much run, swim, go to the gym and have a really intense workout and not worry about having to change your clothing between activities.
Tri suits, whilst made for triathlons are a really functional piece of workout attire. A typical workout might include a run or walk to get the body warm, followed by a gym workout with weights, To finish off a workout might also include a swim at the end (just shower though so you are clean before you get in).
o2fit’s triathlon suits is sleek and fitted in a way to give you the best performance in both your triathlon training and on the big day.
The suit allows you to swim, ride and run without needing to spend time changing gear during the transitions. Most professional triathletes will wear a triathlon suit because it offers an all-in-one, multi-purpose garment that can be worn from the moment you arrive, right through to the recovery period after the event.
Our triathlon suits include chamois padding (micro fleece 85% polyester + 15% spandex) in the crotch for comfort during the ride, while not impeding swimming or running ability.
They are made from quick dry material which will ensure that you dry off as quickly as possible between the swim and the ride to prevent chafe.
Other benefits include:
Leg grippers so you don’t have to worry about the short legs riding up while you train or race
Reduced drag in the water to ensure you perform at your best and aren’t overworked in the early stages of the event reducing muscle oscillation upon ground contact increasing torque generated about joints
Reducing the risk of injury by enhancing recovery following strenuous exercise by aiding in the removal of blood lactate and improving subsequent exercise performance increasing feelings of positive leg sensations both during and following strenuous exercise
Reducing the effects of delayed onset muscle soreness in the days following strenuous exercise
Our strategic flat-lock stitching means enhanced comfort and a great fit.
Tired of the classic matching top and bottom bikini? It’s time to refresh your swimwear after a long, cold, dreary winter. I have been loving the collections by Andrea Iyamah and recently found a new little gem… Winifred Taylor (see article on Fashionbombdaily.com). I’m really feeling the cut out pieces,all the extra ties and of course the bright colors! I’m really looking forward to summer… time to get back in the gym!
Angela Simmons, who is famous for rocking Nigerian designers regularly, loves Andrea Iyamah and has been spotted wearing several pieces from the designer.
Here are a couple of pieces form her 2014 collection:
I’m keeping me eye on Winifred Taylor and I’m looking forward to seeing how the designs evolve. Like Andrea Iyamah and other swimwear brands she’s on trend with the cut outs, halter necks and color. I really like the digital prints…
Last weekend was the 1st back in the UK and my feet didn’t touch the ground as instead of doing miles on the bike it was miles on foot through the busy West End of London in the Santa Speedo Run London. This is the 3rd year the Santa Speedo Run has been run in London and this year they decided to put their Speedos behind the #cyclerounduk challenge and all monies raised went to Prostate Cancer Foundation Australia and Prostate Cancer UK.
